Sometimes I wonder as an entrepreneur if I’m a bad friend.
But I have to believe that your true friends will always support you and still love you when all you can talk about is your blog or your business, how you’re doing on Pinterest or Instagram or even your seemingly insane plans to being profitable.
God bless them for their patience when we’re overwhelmed and burnt out, and for all the times we work way harder than we should instead of just hanging out with them. I am even more grateful for the friends I can hustle side-by-side with. For the Best Blogger and Biz Besties, I’ve made over the last few years.
Whether they get your hustle or not, your Valentine of a best friend would love to know how you’re doing, how they can support you and be part of your journey.
Don’t forget to share your moments with them, and to give yourself some tender loving self-love too.
Happy Valentine’s Day to you, boo!
