Being Self Employed

by Steve Epperson
(Las Cruces, New Mexico (USA))


I really shouldn't complain. I have been a personal trainer for about 16 years now. I have my own private studio. I have about 30-35 training hours per week on average.

I sometimes complain to my wife about my clients; but really, it could be a whole lot worse. I could be working for a company where they only hire idiots as managers. That seems to be the case usually, doesn't it? You often get thrown in with people who don't know their job, so you have to make up for their incompetence.

That doesn't happen as a self-employed trainer. It's all on you. Sink or swim, it's because of your actions, not someone else. You do what is right for you and your own business. No one can tell you the color purple doesn't belong on the wall. You just go ahead and paint it.
