It’s been 1 year and 3 months since I quit my job.
This past 15 months have been a roller coaster ride. I’ve enjoyed life in ways I’ve never imagined. Getting an annual pass for a water theme park and going there frequently with my wife and son on weekday afternoons when there is the least crowd, is the best part.
On the flip side, there’s also the uphill struggle of entrepreneurship.
The stress and workload on an entrepreneur is heavy. Not just heavy, but VERY heavy! There are no annual leave or sick leave. I did deliveries while recovering from illness. I did sales while running a 38 degree fever. I sleep 3–6 hours almost every night. Sometimes less, rarely more.
In fact, just last Saturday, I slept at 4am and woke up at 7.30am to do a delivery on a freaking Saturday morning.
It’s all worth it.
What I enjoyed the most as an entrepreneur is the feeling of being in control.
