Family comes first

Left Arrow

My family needs me to earn money. That’s what I do. Kids don’t care about my silly dream of being a business owner. They care about new trainers, a cool car and a holiday in Spain. Occasionally, I guess I feel frustrated at home and I guess they pick up on that? If I make one extra placement a month, we will be going to Spain though. When the kids are older, I am sure that I will get a chance to spend more time with them – it’s just that right now, by the time I get back from work, they are already in ‘bed mode’ and I am really tired anyway. The weekends? Nightmare and right now, I seem to be lumbered with extra work stuff. Someone said to me recently that when they are older, the kids will only remember the time that they had with me. It’s all about memories, school plays, football and netball. Do they care about KPIs, one extra placement? How can I risk it all to make it all work? Words are easy – who is going to give me that support? It’s true, it is all a trap.
