It’s MY Business (Song) aka. What to say when they ask “When will you get a real job”?

Have you ever heard questions like this:

“When are you going to get a real job?”
“But….what do you do for money?”
“That’s so nice you get to stay home and do nothing all day.”

Sigh.

Your loved ones don’t get it.

They mean well. They want you to eat and maybe even retire someday. They don’t understand why you don’t put off your happiness until 55 like the rest of the human race.

I’ve got good news and bad news.

The good news is that they will one day stop.

The bad news is that there is nothing you can do to make them stop. All you can do is just keep working and eventually they will 1) Tire of telling you, you’re crazy or 2) Realize that you are a total genius.

While you put in your time. I have a song to keep you humming along while you work.

Tweet this song.

What’s the craziest thing anyone has said in response to you telling them you have your own business?

    Someone told my husband and me a few of years that once you have kids it’s utterly out of the question to quit your job because you need the insurance. Fast forward to today. We have a 19 month old baby girl, and my husband is quitting his corporate jump in a month because he can’t take another minute. I have to stay miserable because I need insurance?! Puh-lease.

  • Jen

    I really want to jam with you.

  • You are, as always, awesome lovely lovely gorgeous Farideh!

Nikki-Elledge-Brown-300x300I love how Farideh takes the overwhelm out of something we all tend to resist like crazy (even though we *know* it can lead to direct ROI!). The way she breaks each step into simple (often melodic) chunks is as delightfully refreshing as she is.
