Being an entrepreneur can be rough on the pockets. You are most likely coming out of pocket for every expense. It takes money to make money, right? Well, (transparent moment) my pockets are on "E". They were only on half to begin with. But what I am learning in this transition is that I cannot "roll" how I used to. I can't go out to dinner as often or buy as many gifts as I want to. And spoiling myself if out of the question right now. If you are in the beginning stages of starting your business its okay to cut back. And don't allow family or friends to make you feel bad about it. You are doing what God called you to do; following your passion. They say following your passion and not getting paid for it is just a hobby. And you can tell those people, not for long!
It will all be worth it in the end. Trust God!
