So one of my New Year's goals was to read books. Before this year, I cannot tell you the last time I read a book. I would bet money that is has been at least ten years, and even before that I probably used "Spark Note" or just skimmed the book for a class and called it reading. I was never the kid that would read and just get lost for hours in a book. Fiction, sci-fi, mystery, romance... none of those types of books interested me.

I've been struggling with these thoughts for months, and I've realized over the past few months what needed to come out of this personal struggle of mine.
I don't feel like there's many people that "look up" to me, however I'm sure there's plenty of people that don't realize I "look up" to them, so in an attempt to break this vicious cycle, I'm coming clean. So, here it goes: transparency.
Most people look at entrepreneurs and think "wow, they have it made." We make our own schedules, choose who we work with, and make all the profits. Don't get me wrong, being a small business owner is what dreams are made of, but it isn't for the light-hearted. Being an entrepreneur is TOUGH. It's stressful. It's unsure. It's a lot of hard work and long hours.
I did a thing... Since January, I've been living on my own in a cute one-bedroom apartment. Don't get me wrong, having my own space is awesome. However coming home to an empty apartment... every... single... night gets really old, really fast. I knew once I moved out of my parents' house, I wanted a dog, but I wanted to wait until I found the right one and was financially ready.
