Day 4 as a full-time entrepreneur…. What shall I say? The truth is, today was tough. Not really as nothing really bad happened or anything but I realised that it’s a whole lot need to be down. The amount of work you have to put into a new company to actually set the fundament can be quickly overwhelming.
What I have planned to do …
Before I actually got started this week full-time I hustled aside. I worked after hours, after a normal workday, to build my business. I registered the company, have built the webpage, created social media accounts ….. and so much more.
I created also a plan how I gonna schedule my days as soon as I gonna pull in full-time. I had also planed to eat healthy and go the gym daily. The healthy eating bit I manage to do pretty well, however, going to the gym although there is so much work to do feels a bit wrong. Yes, I know it’s not wrong but it what it feels like.
I also had planned to schedule my work on every day according to topics. This means to have a social media day, a business development day, a research and content day, training days and consulting days. So far so gut.
What I am really doing right now….
So, as described above these were my plans and how I would love to work. Reality is – it’s nothing like that. There are so many more things to be considered when you are building a business. A routine seems like something pretty odd. For example I have to create contracts. Need to register for corporate tax etc.
What I also realised is that the english system appears to be very different from the German. Furthermore is English not my mother tongue what makes things slightly more difficult. I relocated to the UK two years ago and of course I learned English at school but it’s very, very different to living in England and speaking on day-to-day basis. It’s also more difficult to get your head around all the paper works. And I believe with speaking in a different language one automatically feels slightly less confident than in ones mother tongue.
But I can absolutely recommend the page gov.uk to everybody who is currently either founding a business or thinking about it. The page is amazingly informative, handy and very well written.
And I never shied away from a challenge so I will do my very best to fight all obstacles and get this baby off the ground!
