The Business of You
The word “business” carries a definite meaning for many people. By definition it means “the occupation, work, or trade in which a person is engaged.” I hear people say: “I could never run my own business” or “I don’t like business.”
The way I see it everyone is in business. Everyone. You are in the Business of You.
As an employee, you think you have a job. Here’s another way to look at it: you have a client, not a job. You have one client that supports your whole business. Like any business, you had to sell your service to that company to get the contract. In the Business of You, there is monthly income and expense. If you lose that client (i.e. get laid off) it hurts the bottom line. The nice thing about this business is that in the macro view it never fails – it just is.
Running your business is challenging but it can also be great fun. In your business you get to decide exactly how you want things to run. You’re the boss in the Business of You. Remember that.
