a year ago i quit my job and started my own business. at first everyone was very supportive. at first times were really tough and i had no business. barely scraping by but slowing moving ahead. these days my company is bringing in a good amount but to expand i need to reinvest almost everything i make. i only pay myself enough to barely survive... all in hopes that reinvesting so much will help my company grow and become successful. i also work 6 days a week (sometimes 7) and i go in early and stay late. i work very hard and my family admires me for that. but it seems very apparent that they are frustrated that i do not pay myself much more. especially my fiance. i can not spend the money i use to when i had a "normal" job and now she is very unhappy. i feel like everyone is thinking "starting your own business is hard... so just quit and work a normal job because its easier and you'll have more money". arg. OT i am selfish for starting my business?!
