February is the month of love — or even luuurve, if you prefer. In spite of the cold and damp of late winter, Valentine’s Day warms us up with romance. You might be celebrating a well-established relationship, enjoying the excitement of a new love or searching for that one perfect person, but the romance is the same.
But love isn’t always for a partner. Some of us are in love with our businesses, too, and Valentine’s Day is perfect to celebrate that.
Falling out of love often comes before falling in love, and you may have fallen out of love with working for someone else. It’s getting boring, and you feel there must be something better. Then it strikes you — you could work for yourself.
But where do you find this new love? What business could you run? That’s when you have to search your own passions, find out what you really want from your new romance… er, business. It won’t be easy and can easily get too much if you’re not completely in love with it.
The first weeks of a new romance can be overwhelming, not to mention time-consuming. The same is true when you start your new business. A million-and-one things need to be done. You’ll have sleepless nights because of everything that’s going through your head.
And you’ll love it. You’re finally doing exactly what you’ve chosen, following your dream. There are so many excitements, from seeing your website up and running to sending your first invoice; from meetings with clients to seeing their testimonials to a great job done. You’re in love with your business.
Falling in love is half the fun; staying in love is all of it. Just like your long-term relationship, your business is for life, or at least a substantial part of it.
But, of course, you can’t keep up that frenetic first flush of romance indefinitely. Just like any relationship, there’ll be times you find yourself taking your business for granted and forgetting the passion.
There’ll be difficult times, too. You’ll lose an important contract, have issues with employees, feel you’re stuck in a rut. But the passion will still be there, if you can find it. You just have to remember why you fell in love in the first place.
Enjoy Valentine’s Day with your significant other, but don’t forget your other romance. Whether it’s brand new or whether you’re rediscovering your passion, celebrate your love for your business.
