A 10-Point Plan for Deals (Without Being Overwhelmed)

The Ever Reliable Camping Coffee Pot

Several years ago, me and my wife were working in charter school which operate from the usual 8 to 5 and we have to be there half an hour before and after. Spending 10-hour on your job is more than enough to make it less exciting and stressful while adding hefty take-home assignments, obstinate teens as well as administrator politics. Well if without my camping coffee pot, then I surely be suffering from ulcer.

This is actually the reason why after I was laid off from my job, it has made me celebrate more than mourn. Whether you believe it or not, my wife has later submitted her resignation letter few months after mine. We realized how big of our lives that have been sapped away once we’re free from this cruel act of a 50-hour work week. There were people and close friends who we had not spent time with for years, despite knowing that we’re just on the same part of town.

We have made a decision to start our own business which will give us freedom to spend time the way we want, take vacations, spend time with friends, use our camping coffee pot once again and so on. Right from this moment, we had started to brainstorm ideas on a new business.

The difference about working for someone else and working for yourself is the fact that you need to work twice as hard. If you’re just starting out in your business, you will feel the gravity of challenges you have to face. The first few months we are doing the business, our workdays are even stretched to 12-hours a day and at times, it goes beyond it. We’re just lucky to have our camping coffee pot which gives us the energy we need when our body is almost ready to give up. If we are not working at the shop, you will see us working in our laptops and trying to reach out to vendors, make class schedule and also, spread the word out on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other social media sites.

Not before long, we realized that we’d gone 3 years almost without taking a vacation. Before, we were able to take road trips yearly but nowadays, we’re lucky if we find the time to drive two hours to take a visit to our family. Believe it or not, we were camping enthusiasts who have access to high-tech camp stoves and camping coffee pot. On our available time, work seems to haunt us; a consequence of not putting up boundaries between work and personal time. We are using our camping coffee pot and take the time to solve this issue.
