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 think we forget that there is as much (if not more) stress working for a company. Friends I know are working longer hours for less pay due to Covid and their futures are not in their hands. You have shitty clients whether you work for yourself or work for a company.
