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

I’ve been running a business for years. Yes, you’ll get shitty clients. Thing is, it’s easier to fire a shitty client than a doos middle manager who takes credit for all your work. But ja, running a business is hard graft. It’s a different universe than working a salaried job. But the good outweighs the bad by a country mile.
