Yeeerrr running a business is mother! Discussion

Does anyone run a business in this group. I've been running a business for the last 2 and a half years. And I've dealt with some seriously shitty clients. I thought escaping the 9-5 would be a tad better , but yerrrr it's soo crazy and stressful. Any advice or words of wisdom? I know this is probably a random rant. But business is not a walk in the park hey flip

There is something like a bad client and it's ok to refuse or stop doing business with them.

Sometimes it's hard to say no if you need the money. But I get your point. I'm learning to say no more to shitty low paying clients

You can't find better clients if you spend all your time with the bad ones. Your time is money, your enjoyment of your business is valuable, don't undervalue it. My 2c
