    3 Ways to Get Through the Holidays When You’re Self-Employed

      Plan ahead and say no when is necessary to survive and keep your mind normal is a rule for everyone:P

    2. Ugh! The family guilt! How did you know that’s my biggest struggle too? 😉

    3. These are all really great points! There are pros and cons to side hustle vs. self-employment, and I definitely feel the cons. It’s important for me to focus on the pros for the time being (consistent pay, benefits – PTO(!)). When you are self-employed I think it’s important to do the same thing. Don’t dwell on the fact that you don’t have PTO or clients are slow to respond (if at all) the second half of December. Think about all the pros you have such as setting your own schedule, being able to say no to things, etc. You aren’t trapped at a desk 40-60 hours a week! It’s important to celebrate those things, especially around the holidays.

        Absolutely. I’m a huge fan of self-employment and would take it over a 9-5 ANY day, that said, it’s important to know it’s not all sunshine and rainbows 🙂

      Be less social.It can be really easy to get distracted with your social accounts, but if you really want to make the most of the time you have in the working day, try to take a step back from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram etc.
