A buddy told me recently
he was envious
that I worked for myself.
He had to work from 9 to 5.
I could work whenever I want.

I laughed.
I CAN work whenever I want
but to grow my writing business,
that whenever is at least 70 hours a week.
Working from 9 to 5 would be
like a vacation for me.

“You can’t be afraid of hard work.
If people get into working for themselves
because they don’t like
how hard it is to work for others,
they probably shouldn’t do it.
You’ll be working more hours.
It never stops.
You basically live your business.”

There are many great reasons
to start your own business.
Working less hours isn’t one of these reasons.
