So, I’m sitting here at my kitchen table formulating a strategy for a potential client, and a wave of uncertainty just hit me. I know that I’m great at what I do(Social Media Management), I continue to read and learn new ways to be better, but to date I have technically had only one paying client. This is my passion, what I’d rather be doing to provide for my family, but I get this dreadful feeling every Monday because I know I have to go to this stupid a** job to ensure the bills are paid.
Don’t get me wrong, I am so grateful to be in a position to be able to provide for my family, I just know that I am capable of achieving so much more. Please understand that I am not sending invitations out for an extravagant pity party, I am simply venting. I’ve been sending pitch after pitch after pitch to companies I see that need my services, with a fairly small amount of feedback.
I know that the laws of probability are on my side, I’m just frustrated with my results at the moment. So maybe this article will help motivate other entrepreneurs who are having the same obstacles to get over their frustrations and keep striving.
The more I have to punch this clock for someone else, the more I realize that I’m not an employee. Everyone is not built to be the boss, and I know I’m not destined to be a “career employee”.
So I will keep grinding, because I know that the next two clients I get will provide the endorsements I need to give my not-so-intelligent employers their two-weeks’ notice! I say this because I am more focused on the quality of my work than I am the money I’ll get paid for it. The money will be there, always have been and always will be.
Providing a quality service is my top priority because satisfied customers will generate more satisfied customers. The more people I help realize their dreams, the closer I get to realizing my own. Thanks for listening, I appreciate your time, but now I have to get back to work!
