I think I’m beginning to understand myself better. It’s not that I am incapable of having someone work for me, it was more than that. It was the fact that I didn’t want someone else working on my things unless they absolutely felt as passionate about it as I am. My assistant had many flaws, and as an employer, you might think that I fired him because of those flaws. Yes, I did.
He wasn’t qualified for the job. When I would ask him to accomplish a task, I felt that he dragged things out. He spent a long time making a banner that didn’t look good. And if I wanted my assistant to research something for me, he would spend just as much time surfing the web rather than actually doing the work. Sure, I could have waited for him to finish his work or encouraged him to do it faster, but that wouldn’t have worked either.
I’m just not cut out to have someone work for me. It’s the constant need to check on their work to make sure that they’re doing it right. I hated that. He had no vision of how things “could” be. And in turn, I slowly ran out of inspiration too. So guess what? I am working all by myself now and I love it. I couldn’t be happier, and as I embark on this journey into the blog world by myself, I am so excited. I can’t wait to see what I think of or choose to write about.
I’ll keep you posted!
