One of the hardest things about running your own business is that you are responsible for everything. One of the hardest things about running a business and being a total control freak is not allowing anyone to help you. THIS IS ME!!!
In the last 2 and a half years I have pretty much been all consumed by things Sheep Shack Shop related. Whether it is sourcing new stock, sending out orders or even just updating the website with new stock most of my ‘downtime’ sees me on the laptop doing something shop related.
My aim for 2020 (and beyond) is to try and find a better work/life balance. I have long since neglected a love of mine which is Cross Stitching. I used to find this very relaxing and used to do it in the time I had spare (before starting the company). Increasingly I have come to realise it is important for me to take time for me – not easy when you have family, the day job (yes I work as well), general everyday chores – but it is something that is vital to maintain a sense of self as well and a degree of good mental health.
So why am I sharing? Well I did say I would update the blog more frequently…and this just happened to be on my mind.
I’d love to hear what you do to unwind – pop your comments below!
