Turns out, it's not like that at all!
I've discovered I'm a bit of a workaholic and that I'm also extremely disciplined. So, when it's a stunningly sunny day, I could easily wander outside, gaze at my beautiful sea view and sunbathe for a few hours. But I don't. In fact it's quite the opposite. My office faces the road, not the view, and regardless of the weather, it's the room in our house where I spend most of my time and I actually like being in there.
I have discovered a kind of 'inner drive' about myself that compels me to want to be in my office, getting on with my work and working with my clients. I actually don't want to be outside working on my tan!
When I worked in the 'real world' I always enjoyed my jobs and found my work extremley rewarding, but it's absolutley nothing like owning your own business and nothing beats the feeling of having a happy client after a job well done.
Now, if I could just get the hang of not going to work in my PJ's and slippers...! ;o)
