Here’s the thing about running a business that people fail to tell you: you’ll feel alone. It’s not a shiny, glamorous detail of entrepreneurship, so it gets swept under the rug like a dust bunny. As a business owner, you’ll make tough decisions, wake up thinking about client requests, and stress about referrals, taxes, and an ever-growing inbox. All the while, you’re desperate to share that ache with someone, but most days face the tidal wave of emotion by yourself. Not because you have to, but–mostly–because you’re afraid others won’t understand.

So, this is me. Here. Admitting to feeling very alone.

I’m writing this like a love note left behind for a stranger, in hopes of sharing a lifeboat in the middle of a storm.

Dear Dreamer,
I know the mornings of waking up to sound of adrenaline pumping in your ears. I know what it feels like to make mistakes. I know apologies. I know the high of your first paying customer to the low of your first NSF. I know uncomfortable conversations. I know losing a friend because Business got in the way. I know failure.

But I also know that the world is a better place because you’re trying. By simply showing up, taking a risk, and doing your best, you’re empowering others to do the same. And, together, we’ll leave this place better than we found it.

Shine On,
j*

I wouldn’t say we were business nerds but my husband just sent me a Slack message asking me to call him.

If you need me, just follow the trail of empty La Croix cans around my house.
