I’ll admit to you right now that September was a horrible month for me. Horrible.
Two family issues cropped up last month that had me in a crabby mood. They were issues that I haven’t had to deal with yet in my life, and I’ll admit that they were big ones. I don’t have the family support that I feel I need, either, which of course added another layer to the crabbiness. I was something else, to put it mildly.
I made some mistakes last month as a result of this stress. I’ll admit that. They weren’t major mistakes but they were big enough that it got me fairly stressed out. I know this would have never happened had I not been so stressed.
I’ll also admit that part of it is that I’m learning as I go. I was in real estate for almost ten years, so this is a new ballgame. (Is it ever….) I guess I can look at it that way and simply move on. Lessons learned.
How do other business owners cope with family stress and dealing with other issues? I’d love to hear your suggestions for muddling through it all.
Then maybe we could all learn from each other.
