I was in the studio last week with my artist and we were discussing how 9 to 5er's are always saying how we have it so good and they wish they could just wake up whenever they want and make their own schedule.
First off, I don't know anyone who loves to wake up and have to figure out how or if they will make any money that day. Secondly, it’s hard to stay motivated to keep going at something that doesn't have stability. So many times I used to sit, at home during the day, and I play with the idea of being an uber driver. I didn’t get a degree and have been working for myself since the age of 15 1/2. Right after cosmetology school my teacher hired me and I quit on my first day. Working for someone else is just not the kind of life I am meant to have. So with that being said, I have to keep the fire lit under my feet. Constantly taking classes to improve my skills. Reading and listening to podcasts to stay informed on the latest things happening in my field.
So to respnd to the comment. No job is easier than the other. They all require work.
