“Phantasmagoria of Change”; isn’t that an awesome phrase? It belongs to the author Tosha Silver and I can’t think of anything better to describe what it means to be self-employed.
Recently, while having dinner with 3 friends from my high-school classroom teaching days one of them remarked how incredible it was that I’ve been self-employed for over 15 years and wanted to know how I’ve done it.
As part of my answer I shared that if you want to just “clock in, go to work and take vacations” self-employment is not for you. Another friend at the table scoffed out loud (it’s ok that she doesn’t get it, I love her anyway).
And this is all true.
And this is all challenging for us HSEs.
We tend to abhor change and love vacations.
So, why on earth then, would you choose to be self-employed as a person who is highly sensitive?
Because as a Highly Sensitive Entrepreneur (HSE) you also love to learn and are deeply committed to self-growth.
And, as I’ve been known to say, “If you want a fast-track to personal growth: start a business.”
There is no richer, volatile, vibrant, multi-colored learning ground for an HSE than self-employment.
Through this never-ending ‘phantasmagoria of change” you will heal the wounds that have been dogging you for years and transform what you’ve been seeing your whole life as highly-sensitive difficulties into Super-Power Strengths that will bring you to prosperity and a deep purpose-driven business and life.
Personally, I wouldn’t trade that for anything.
