If I never work another day, financially, I'f be fine........but emotionally, it's a different story.

I enjoy what I do, if I ever get to the point that I no longer enjoy it, I'll retire. Not sure how that would work out though.......lol.

My wife and I were having a discussion about this, and this is the conclusion we both came to as to why I can only get my business so far. I love what I do too much to get out of the field and run a "Proper" organization.

But.... I think that just means I need to hire the right individual to run it for me!

I’ve been struggling with motivation lately, times are tough and I can’t see a light at the end of the tunnel. I like to think acknowledging this is a step in the right direction yet I’m not sure when and where this lack of motivation manifested.

hi Sparky
there are always light at the end of the tunnel - actually there are one light at each side You just need to have a look around the corner every one on this form were there at some stage (normally when things get tough in the business and i assure you it goes up and down the whole time so brace yourself - sorry this is not helping)
the main thing is to get up and work, the best way to get out of slump (or go the other way start drinking A LOT - see there are 2 lights )

i will send you a friend invite maybe this will help
