Someone asked me why I work three jobs when I don’t have to.
THIS is why I work three jobs!
First off, people that don’t know me well enough, doesn’t know my financial situation and MAYBE I do need to work three jobs.
But in all honesty, they’re right – I don’t need to work three jobs. But I CHOOSE to work three jobs.
My massage business will ALWAYS be my full time job. Always. I love what I do and that will never change. And I went into this career to help others and travel the world.
My part time job at the architect firm ROCKS. I work with some awesome people and I love working for the owner. This past year, the company has been able to offer me affordable benefits (health/dental) –which is extremely beneficial because paying for health insurance out of pocket is horrific (we all know the stories of affordable health care… that no one can afford it).
My other full time job is at the domestic violence shelter. This one is truly a BLESSING. It’s on the path of where my gifts can be utilized – and I get paid for it and a roof over my head. And they too offer me better benefits (WAY cheaper than the other job). So, I’ll be paying less in benefits and don’t pay rent.
So, when you ask me why I work three jobs – its about priority, planning, hustling and making it work. And I have no desire to work for the rest of my life.
I am doing what I need to do –even if that means working 7 days/week and an even lesser social life than I had before.
It’s cool because in 5 years, I’ll have my home and I’ll have my long vacations. I won’t be worrying about anything except what I need to make for dinner, whose coming to visit or planning my next trip. AND I will still be doing what I love.
God NEVER gives us more than we can handle – so until then – I’m gonna keep on doing me (unless someone is offering to pay my bills, take me on extended vacations around the world or buys me my 5-6 bedroom home with an in-law suite and amazing back yard fully equipped for entertaining…. which more than likely won’t happen any time soon). I gotta do what I gotta do! Rise and grind.
Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle. ~Abraham Lincoln
Peace. Love. Happiness.
