I’ve been self-employed for most of the last decade. I’ve gone through seasons of over-working, under-working and everything in between. I’ve been busy and poor. I’ve been thrilled to pursue the life of an entrepreneur and ready to call it quits. My relationship to self-employment has seen many different faces. But, the one complication that has remained throughout the experience has been trying to explain it to the people in my life. Some have understood it more than others and a lot of times anything they didn’t understand it’s because I haven’t communicated it to them well. But, the more I work with other self-employed individuals, the more I see that we’re all facing the same complications in communicating our lives to the people who love us the most. So, today, I thought I’d share just a few things to help you understand and show love to the entrepreneur in your life.
