One thing I have noticed about owning your own business, even a simple one, like my micro-business, is that you always feel like you should be working on it. Taking time completely to yourself induces feelings guilt, or sloth.

No one tells you this. All you ever hear is that being your own boss is great. Having a side hustle is great. Work from home. Make your own hours. Unfortunately, those hours are often never ending.

Not that I am really complaining. I want the business to be a success. I just wish it were less psychically draining sometimes.
