drowning in a glass of water - monica lacey 2014
When you're self-employed, especially self-employed doing something you love, it is tricky to complain about your work - or your boss - without doing some damage to your self-esteem/feeling like a jerk for complaining about something awesome.  However, sometimes we all need to complain about our jobs, regardless of what they are.  Just like, if you have a paper cut and the guy next to you has a gunshot wound, it doesn't mean your paper cut doesn't hurt. Most of the time I really love what I do. Today though, I took a business webinar with CARFAC, and I've been reflecting a bit on my own business practices. So, I have a few complaints:

My %&*# boss never gives me set hours, I'm always on call!  I never get a true day off because my boss always wants me to be thinking about work.  I never know when I'm going to get paid, and when I do, I have to donate that money right back to the business! Even on vacations I'm working. And my boss wants everything to be amazing - for everything I make to be great.  So unfair.

That's my rant for the day :)  Thank goodness for my fellow artists out there who remind me why I do this and inspire me like mad - just discovering/finding fuel from Adam Magyar, check him out.
