At times I feel that my work should only consist of the “real thing” – creating, collecting and processing great culinary travel tips. And all other things, ranging from promoting my products, maintain contact with relations to keeping track of my expenses feel like useless distractions, keeping me from being productive where it matters.
The thing is, though, that exactly these things – making sure that the products get sold and making sure that there is a good balance between money coming in and going out (= profit balance) make a “hobby” into an enterprise.
Of course it is important to offer the most wonderful product, but if in the long run there is no economical justification, then I cannot say that I run a company, then I am just offering a non-profit service to the world. Which in return means that I should look for another way to take care of the bills at home, having to look for a proper job, having less time to spend on creating great content, etc.
So, I am glad that I kind of start to accept the fact that there are many – equally important – aspects to enterpreneurship, not being able to exist without one and other.
