I have just spent the last couple of months creating a business plan and working on opening a brick and mortar business in the Colorado Springs area. I have a partner, my best friend who I was going to do this with. I had a meeting with a businessman/commercial realtor this week. He basically told me that the market is taking a downturn and we are heading into a recession that could be the worst yet. He said honestly we should wait it out and NOT start a business. I am completed deflated and unmotivated. I’m pissed off and personally just annoyed. I feel like I can’t get ahead no matter what I do. I have tried hustling cleaning houses, I have tried being a loan officer, now a part-time realtor (seeing major effects of the recession hitting the housing market). I don’t know what else to do. Where do you go when you feel you can’t lose anymore? I have an entrepreneurial spirit but I can’t get anything off the ground to save my life.
I feel I have worked so hard and still have zero to show for it. I have no one (as far as family) giving out handouts, so it is up to us. WTF. Sorry if this is a vent, but it is. It’s a vent to say I can’t win no matter what I do.
Can I just start life over?
