What My Day Job Teaches Me About My Business

Like many creative entrepreneurs, I am not yet in a position to make a living solely on my creations. That’s not necessarily a bad thing in my case because I feel this gives me breathing room for mistakes and risks.

I work at an office in the daytime, handling receptions and communications. I am surrounded by people who are fighting for workers rights. I’ve learned a lot in my time there but I think the most important thing I have learned is that at which point I am able to expand and maybe have a functioning staff, I want the people who work for me to feel that they are being treated with respect and the dignity they deserve. I want to be able to give out living wages that people can really bank on.

I will be no one’s slum boss.

I want to build a brand where the people will feel like family and can feel safe in each other’s company. I want a lot of things that I didn’t always know I wanted.

When you know better, you should do better.

  1. Hi Kristianna! I love your opening paragraph, that is exactly how I feel as well. I am very dedicated to my blog but still in the learning phases too. I work professionally in social media and copywriting and I use so many of my work learnings and apply them to my blog. Great blog post!
