Starting Your Own Company - It's like being on fire and trying to put it out by pouring gas on your head

It’s almost been a whole year since I have taken the leap of starting my own business full time and it has been nothing sort of incredible and living hell, all at the same time. There has been a lot going on in my personal life that I’ve been needing to balance along with work. One thing for instance that I noticed immediately is the how quickly the day goes by, at any other job that I have had in the past I would eagerly await the next lunch break or the magically time of heading out the door. But this is completely different, there is an energy and drive inside that I haven’t seen in quite a long time. For example, I stayed up till 2 AM last night working like a mad man. You must understand that I am usually one that would’ve turned his “work brain” off from work by 3:00 PM every day, so it’s very odd to now be eagerly looking at the clock in attempt to slow down time.

I could go on all day about different examples but who wants to hear about that? I am writing this blog post as milestone for myself and all that I have achieved over the years by creating this website to showcase it all to the public, which isn’t easy to do. This is the first time in a long time that I have put myself out there creatively for anyone and everyone to see my works with a handful of my clients. But I know that this feeling will only last about an hour, before I get over it and begin to start engaging in another must-needed task within my company.  Here is to another wonderful year of walking into the dark obsess of going into business for myself and to my amazing clients, for whom none of this would be possible.
