Drinking water from a fire hydrant.

drinkingAs this short week comes towards an end, I feel as if I have been drinking water from a fire hydrant.  Imagine positioning yourself right in front of the opening and trying to take in gulps of rushing water.  Eyes being blasted, nose full and coupious amounts of water rushing down your throat.  Yes, what I just described is the life of an entrepreneur.

Three websites under construction, fulfillment processes being mapped, product review, pricing structure analysis, copy for the websites written, correspondence with customers, phone calls with customers, phone calls with team mates, emails, budgets, write CEU, get booth space for convention, work on accounting procedures, book hotel for next weeks travel, review month end numbers from the funeral homes, work on capital campaign pitch deck, Go to Meetings for presentations (thank God for that program), personal education reading different periodicals, write tweets, respond to tweets, set up e commerce accounts, write 2 blogs, post blogs on social media, respond to readers, and so on.  What am I thinking?  There is no such thing as a short week.  I’m in the office this morning at 4:30am and I know I will return to this desk Saturday and Sunday at some point.

And of course there is life that goes on somewhere in there.  The bottom line is I love it…I’d rather work 80 hours for myself than 40 hours for someone else.  After all, water is good for you.  Cheers y’all! #thefuenralcommander

    What a roll. Bless your heart. Sounds like a blast. I often thought wouldn’t be great to freeze or even roll back the clock to allow more hours in the day to get things done….and to be doing them for your own business…I think you realize how blessed you are.

    This guy’s schedule sounds like it might be similar to yours. What do you think? This is one of the many sources I continually feel the pulse of to keep abreast of my field. : )

    Well, it’s going to be great…don’t have a heart attack or you’ll miss the whole show. Take good care of yourself…this won’t mean a thing if you can’t see it come together.
    The profession can’t afford to lose an asset such as yourself. 🙂
