The most prevalent emotions I've felt since starting this venture full time are 1) happy overwhelm and 2) indignation.
Overwhelm in a happy way - from all the ideas I have and projects I want to work on. I have a long list of things that I actually cannot WAIT to work on, so many new things I want to try...but one thing at a time!
Indignation is from feeling that I am constantly having to defend what we do - not only to clients who have feedback, but from friends who have feedback about how we could change the way we're doing things, and friends who don't believe our program is really for them (we believe that if you eat food, you will get something from our program!). I think part of me just can't imagine being as blatantly unsupportive of a friend's business.
I will say that those difficult conversations with friends who have feedback strengthen my resolve in what we are doing.
I'm glad that I can talk through these things with Tyler, who fully understands as an owner of two businesses.
