It’s my son’s 4th birthday in November which reminds me I’ve not been an employee for around 4 yrs. For those that don’t know I’ve not been unemployed either.
Time does fly. Here are a few points, thoughts and experiences about doing business the Rosie way.
- Working late
- Getting up early
- Having not one, but two kids
- Juggling kids, childcare, labour(!)
- Hating accounts, loving my book keeper.
- Struggling to find work
- Struggling to keep up with the amount of work
- Happy customers
- Difficult people
- No social life
- Networking, networking, networking
- I’m going to quit, resign, give up.
- I might as well just keep going…why do I bother?
- Push, push, I must get through this dip
- Ah, I’m at the top of the hill. I love running my own business
- Oooh, that looks like a nice permanent job
- I work too much
- I should be in bed
- My eyes are going square
- Think I’ll just sneak a nap while my boys watch TV
- My boys know what *email* is and that I check it alot
- I want to be a full time mum
- I’m so glad I’m not a full time mum.
Why Rosie does business:
- Bad experiences with employers
- No flexibility with employers
- I need flexibility – I can put in the hours, just not between 9-5 everyday
- I love to work
- Commuting is BAD
- I’m good at what I do, I can do it better than others
- I like to be in (more) control
- I like/need to see my boys more than just at bedtime and weekends
- Local community is important.
- It’s not just about the money
- Good business ethics are important.
It’s bloody hard work, but I do believe it will be rosie at the end of the tunnel 🙂
