I came across this video today in the mainstream media. It brought back some memories and reminded me why the struggle for independence and self-employment is worth all of the effort and the sacrifices.
At times I need reminding because in the current political/business environment, trying to get into a position of strength on an independent basis (and staying there) is a constant battle, one which often has me questioning whether it is all worth it and at times questioning my own sanity.
Trying to make a living online can be a particularly unforgiving and lonely experience, especially when the going is tough but for many of us, we are between a rock and a hard place. If you don’t understand my meaning, watch the video above.
I think it’s fair to say that some of us literally have no choice. Once you go so far down a certain road there is no turning back and that’s probably a good thing. I’m pretty much unemployable now, my boats/bridges have been burnt. I guess that’s what it means to be an ExRat.
