Starting a family business is tough – But who would have thought that writing a blog about one could be just as hard too!
I’m sorry for my lack of speed of late – Lots has been going on in my personal life recently.
I’m hoping to get myself back on the right path before too long though, so please brace yourselves for more (hopefully good) articles.
Having a business can be a great source of passive income. It provides business owners with the financial freedom that so many people long for. A high amount of businesses are family-owned or family-run. I’m not too sure why this is, but perhaps some think it will be easier because you will be working with the members of your own family.
For me, it is not that easy. Each member should act professionally while cultivating the bond and the good relationship they have. There are some who find it quite a challenging thing to do especially if the members are having personal or family problems. Also, all of them are involved and affected so it can greatly impact the day-to-day operation of the business.
They say having your own business is great as you have other people who work for you and help share the load. I don’t 100% agree with this. I believe in any business, the owner plays the biggest role in that he is more often than not the brain of the business. In other words, the key decisions will still be made by him – the business is in his hands.
Although business owners are constantly prone to stress, depression and other problems that give them headaches, wrinkles and other ailments, the best business owners are those that still somehow find the time to relax their mind and body and pamper their skin to keep it looking fresh.
I know someone who owns a business – she is 50 years old but she still looks young and fresh. I asked her how she keeps her appearance despite her busy day-to-day schedule. Luckily she indulged me in a little secret – she showed me a bottle of sérum vitamine c and told me it is her top tip for younger looking skin as it has many anti-aging benefits and it protects the skin from sun damage.
If you go out and do some research about this serum, I am sure, just like me, you will be amazed by the benefits that you can get from it. I’ve already incorporated this product into my beauty regime and it never fails to amaze me every time I use it. Try it and experience the greatness of this serum!
I’m just stopping by to say Hello and sorry that I won’t be able to post any new articles this week.
I promise to make up for it next time with a super awesome piece.
In the meantime, please take a look at the pieces that are already up! I think they’re rather good. What do you think?
Nowadays, it is not enough to have just only one source of income, especially for those who have their own family already. It would be hard for those who just solely rely on their salaries. The best way to earn money is not to seek further employment, but to invest or to have your own business where other people work for you. This can eventually lead to complete financial freedom.
I know we all want a passive income, but not everyone can have that. Sometimes it just takes too much effort, courage, hard work, and patience.
Whenever I talk about business, I always think of my cousin – he owns a start-up company. He is smart, ambitious, skillful, hardworking, and on top of that, a very handsome chap. He is always a lot busier compared to those who are employed. He works 24/7 and I barely see him having a good time with friends. He is so dedicated to his business that he almost has no time to relax and treat himself. That is why when I came to visit him, I brought him his favorite foods along with his favourite beard balm – this is just one of the usual grooming products he uses regularly and I thought it would be nice to bring one to him as it would remind him that despite all his efforts he needs to remember to look after his appearance too!
I know working with a start-up business is really hard and risky, but all your efforts will be paid off once the business becomes successful. Sometimes we just need to sacrifice a little bit just to get what we wish for.
Just like my cousin, I know many of you are wishing for financial freedom. That is really nice but always remember that wealth alone should not be the only measurement of success, it should also include good health and good relationships with your friends and family, and the people that surround you.
Hey! Me and my family run our own business!
It’s a hell of a thing, and has been one wild ride since we started 5 years ago. I intend to use this blog as a place where I can lay down all my thoughts (like a journal) around business and what I have learnt so far.
If you enjoy it, great! If not, no worries. I’m sure the act of me writing this all done will be pleasurable and beneficial to me so that makes it all worthwhile right!?
