The Ups and Downs of Depression and Working at Home

The Ups and Downs of Depression and Working at HomeBy Emily Belcher

Disclaimer: I am not a doctor. This post is in regards to a serious medical problem that requires help from a licensed health professional. If you are currently depressed, please seek help from your doctor immediately.

Working from home has it’s benefits. In fact, I realized that I would be much happier working from home as soon as I started my first job at the age of 16. Of course, there weren’t as many opportunities available to work at home as compared to today but it was something that crossed my mind many times.

It’s not that I don’t like people. In fact, I love people. But some days, anxiety and depression get the best of me and I don’t love anyone. You can’t love anyone when you don’t love yourself. Unfortunately, depression doesn’t subside when you go to work. Many anxiety attacks and unexplainable and uncontrollable crying fits have happened at many jobs that I’ve had.

One common characteristic that I share with many people who suffer with depression is that it’s hard for me to hold down a job. Working with other people has a lot of positive and negative sides. When it’s good, it’s good but when it’s bad, it’s really bad. When fellow co-workers are happy or enthusiastic, it is easy to absorb their positivity. On the other hand, when working with people who talk negatively about the job, company, or employees, it can also rub off on you and lead you down the road of depression. (more…)

Top 5 Reasons Why Owning Your Own Business Rocks!

Top 5 Reasons Why Owning Your Own Business Rocks!In today’s modern, innovative, and tech-laden world individuals have a variety of choices when choosing their careers and, more importantly, for what company to work. On average, most individuals choose to go and work for an established firm – perhaps it is a large multi-national company where they feel they may have a greater chance at growing a successful career. Others may instead opt to go work for a small business, which the US Small Business Administration defines as any enterprise having 500 or fewer employees. Generally, an individual may opt to work for a small business because of geographical reasons and may not have access to work for a large corporation. After all, according to Forbes.com, as of 2013 there were almost 28 million small businesses in the U.S. and 78% of those had only one employee – today these are called solopreneurs, meaning a company consisting of one individual.

You may have heard that owning your own small business and being your own boss is more difficult and more time consuming because you are a single individual managing multiple roles: CEO, sales representative, bookkeeper, marketer  – the list goes on and on. So why in the world would anyone want to be their own boss? (more…)

How to Avoid Resistance

How to Avoid Resistance By Kelly Robbins

“There’s a secret that real writers know that wannabe writers don’t, and the secret is this: It’s not the writing part that’s hard. What’s hard is sitting down to write. What keeps us from sitting down is Resistance.”  That quote is from a book by Steven Pressfield, called The WAR of ART.

Resistance is what stops us each and every time we set a goal, intention, or resolution and don’t follow through. It’s the conversation we have in our head. It’s what kind of mood we are in or how we are feeling.

We don’t want to let our moods run our life, we want our commitments to.

The thing to know is resistance is sneaky and may look like your kids, your job, your partner … even your broken car disrupting your plans. However, resistance is internal and it’s you and only you that is creating it. The more resistance you feel, the more important it is to your soul’s evolution. The more important it is for you to step into it.

If it wasn’t important and it didn’t contribute to you bettering yourself in some way there would be no resistance. That makes sense, doesn’t it?

If you are just starting to build your work at home business or up-leveling your existing one you may be experiencing quite a bit of resistance right now! (more…)
