Business Isn’t Freedom, Systems Are.

“Own your own business”, they said “escape the 9–5”, “hustle”, they said. And I listened to all of those pieces of advice which definitely got me out of the “rat race” but also put me in another type of race, where now instead of having one boss, I have 500. Taking care of clients, babysitting employees, covering when they’re out, hiring, managing, marketing, and so much more. Small business owners are bombarded with a huge amount of responsibility, and those who are willing to hustle, I believe are at risk of succumbing to the “busy-ness” of business.
