You know the lyrics to that old song “Won’t you take me to Funky town?” Well I’ve been there and would rather stay away. I don’t think anyone likes being in a funk, but it happens to the best of us. You’re low on energy, have to force yourself to get anything done, and just don’t feel quite as enthusiastic about what you’re doing as you do when you’re in a groove. You know that feeling when your business motivation has just got up and gone?
This feeling of funk (or funkiness if you will) can be even more difficult when you’re self-employed; because you don’t have a boss breathing down your neck, motivating you to get back to work or work harder. As a business owner, you’re it. That drive has to come from within you.
