When I was working for other people, however much I loved my job, it was always my job not my life. Now that I run my own show, the line between my job and my self is a lot blurrier. When people ask me how I am, I find myself answering the question how is your business going.

Whilst this poses the constant risk of presenting as bipolar (since my self-estimation is now tied to the business cycle) it also reminds me of how much I would be giving up if I went to work for someone else.

Which probably aligns with my comment about never stopping promoting, marketing and networking. I find myself always thinking in terms of my business – rarely about myself when speaking to others.
