Fuel up Your Body with Camping Coffee Pot
Me as well as my wife were working few years ago in a charter school that is operating from the typical 8 to 5 and we need to be there half an hour before and after. Devoting 10 hours of our life every day on job is a recipe for feeling stressed and exhausted while adding as well to the obstinate teens, take home assignments and the administrator politics too. If I’m not prepared with my camping coffee pot, I probably have ulcer by this time.
This is the same reason why when I was laid off, we felt to celebrate the freedom we can now have than mourning for the loss of a job. As a matter of fact, several months after, my wife has also turned in her resignation letter. We realized how big of our lives that have been sapped away once we’re free from this cruel act of a 50-hour work week. There were people and close friends who we had not spent time with for years, despite knowing that we’re just on the same part of town.
We’ve made a decision of starting our own business, to get that elusive freedom and spend time how we want it, take vacation, go on a camp and use our camping coffee pot and so forth. From this very moment, that’s when we began to brainstorm for new business ideas.
The difference about working for someone else and working for yourself is the fact that you need to work twice as hard. This is true especially when you’re only starting out. On the first couple of months of doing the business, our workload extends to 12-hours a day and sometimes, it stretch more than that. Luckily we had our camping coffee pot giving us the energy boost on times that our body is nearly giving up. When we were not at the shop, we were glued to our laptops, trying to reach out to vendors, schedule class and spread the word out on social media.
Before long, we suddenly realized we had gone almost 3 years without giving ourselves a break. Back then, we used to take annual road trips but now, we’re fortunate to drive two hours to visit our family. Once, we were avid campers equipped with state-of-the-art camp stoves and camping coffee pot. On our available time, work seems to haunt us; a consequence of not putting up boundaries between work and personal time. So, while using our camping coffee pot we have decided to take actions of it.
