Bossbabe Podcast Episode: Workaholic
Do you love what you do every day? Do you love your company? Your boss? Your coworkers? If you answered no to any of those, evaluate your career. Why did you say no?
I am told on a daily basis “How do you do it? How do you work so much? Why do you spend your free time working on a client’s website? Can you just wait until a normal work day?” My answer is always the same- I absolutely LOVE what I do every single day….so why wouldn’t I?!
I use to spend so many hours each week wondering what my true calling is. What would really make me happy….do I really love what I do? It was not until the end of 2019 that I knew I was in the exact place that God wants me. He has me here making a difference in the lives of my client and the people around me each day.
Now, I would be lying if I said this is exactly what I had planned from when I was high school. I was supposed to go to college in austrailia and be in the ministry full time. Then when that did not work out, I was going to marry right out of high school and become a young mom. That part happened but was followed by a quick divorce by 22 years old and then I was starting over again.
I wonder how the heck I survive each day. My body is attempting to fail on me, but I am pushing through the anxiety and the stress. I definitely do not have it figured out...learning how to balance the personal life and business life. I am sure it will all fall into place one day.
My last piece of advice to all of my workaholic friends listening, find yourself a spouse or significant other that loves that about you. I am so blessed to have a husband that understands my late nights, early mornings, and working on the weekends.
