Life's Little Lessons

I'm not going to get too in depth with my embarrassing personal screw up of the week. I had I job for a client that was causing me a lot of personal stress and taking me away from the reasons I chose to work at home in the first place. This was causing major blow ups at home and affecting the quality of the job for my client. Not a good situation, so I decided it was time to bow out before things got any uglier.

However, I'm going to try to find a way to turn my mistake into a growing experience. I'll be taking the time that I'd have otherwise spent on that project and querying for new work. Work that pays more, is more enjoyable, and less time consuming. Hopefully, I can turn my own self-picked lemons into lemonade!

The moral of my short little story is:

When you get in to something that is causing you more drama than the money is worth, admit it and get out early. Don't follow in my footsteps hoping it will get better or easier, because chances are it won't.

A hard lesson learned, but hopefully an experience that I won't repeat again.

I have cut loose a few clients simply because it wasn't worth the pain and agony! You have to do what is in your best interests.
