One of the biggest positives of working for yourself is time freedom.
And one of the biggest drawbacks of working for yourself is that same time freedom.

I learned how easily I could be distracted with social media, how I procrastinated on getting major tasks done with busy work and how I relied on take-out for lunch because I hadn’t planned for it.
This observation helped me realize that I would need to outsource some of my tasks and sign up for a co-working space where other entrepreneurs worked to give me a sense of structure and routine.
