I was listening to a vlog from Galen Emmanuel on youtube. It was about being an entrepreneur and starting your own business. Gallen pointed out that when you start a business be prepared to only spend 3-6% of your time doing what you love. The rest of the time is "running" the business. So, true my friend. I've been working with Galen in my day job. Check him out.
That has been the case for me in the "publishing on Amazon" business I'm starting up. There is all the book publishing prep work, marketing plans, website and social media site building, plus writing all the content you need to create to support. It is fun but exhausting.
And, I have only written about 15,000 words of Colony Collapse - Genus Magica Book Two. And my Novel writing class starts on October 1st and I have to get all the materials into Canvas.
Luckily I know that no one if reading this, so that takes some of the pressure off.
