So, as most of you know, I am finally free from running a kiosk belonging to my family’s business.
I am never the happier. For three years, I’ve suffered running this business that’s not looking like it has a future. For three years, I’ve sacrificed my time, and my money but I rarely get paid. The rent for the space where we opened out kiosks were outrageous. Couple that with paying the workers, the utility bills and the suppliers. The average sales can’t keep up with those. So, most of the time my father had to loan his money.
I’ve told them again and again, we aren’t fit to run a business. But they were engrossed with their delusion and the trend over here of becoming self-entrepreneurs. I can understand they want to retire and have a successful yogurt business. But don’t drag the son along. I’ve lost count of everything I had to let go for this. The workers though, we’ve changed a few along these years and all of them don’t prove themselves to be reliable. There is always at least one excuse not to come to work every one or two weeks. There were some who would just sit on their ass and only work when a customer comes. So whenever my shift starts, I’m the one who had to clean up the place. It’s unfair that they were paid a big amount instead of me.
I have wasted my three years for nothing.
But this is the end now.
What is my plan for the future? As for now, I want to give a few months for myself to get back on my feet. That means commissions. I am planning to do them full time. But at the same time, I doubt my ability to deliver. I may have all the time I want, but it doesn’t stop me from getting side tracked and being unmotivated to draw.
So, just wait till I give an official announcement for commissions. But I won’t promise to you that I’ll take a lot of orders.
