Using a throwaway because I have a lot of friends who frequent this sub.
This post may be a little different than the normal ones you see on this sub.
I don’t want to say the line of business I’m in since it’s a fairly niche industry that would probably out me to other people on this sub who are in the industry. If you’re REALLY curious then PM me and I’ll tell you.
Not sure if this is just a rant or a plea for advice but I’ll just vent it in here and let you guys do with it what you will.
I started an online business about a year ago with the intention of having the freedom to work from wherever I wanted as long as I had a WiFi connection. I’ve accomplished that.
I wanted to make about $100 profit per day so it could be my sole source of income. I’ve accomplished that and significantly more. I’m now making more money than I was ever expecting.
But here’s the thing. I’m more anxious about my business than ever.
I’m in my mid 20’s with the hopes of having enough money invested by 30 that I’ll only need to work when I want to. Currently I’m on pace to accomplish this.
The problem is that every time I’ve reached my previous goals, I find myself immediately making the goals bigger and then become dissatisfied again even though I would have killed to have the same success in the past.
Now that I have this new goal set in my mind, I find myself constantly stressing about it and feel a huge sense of urgency like I need to accomplish this goal as quick as possible in case something goes wrong with the business or things go under.
So my question is to anyone who has had success come on quicker than you expected. How did you learn to enjoy the wins without constantly worrying that you were going to lose it or needed to do more?
