All throughout my college career, I learned how to work for others. This how you do this, this is how you do that. Clients, deadlines, meetings, research, more research, planning, more research. It all makes sense as to why we do it, but what about working for yourself for a change?

I’m still rolling on my new-me-after-graduation kick, so here we go.

If there is one thing I’ve learned, it’s that life is too short not to do what you love. While college taught me how to serve others, both through work and personally, it also taught me to serve myself and do everything I can to be as great as possible. So far, I am trying every day to be productive, creative, and put my entire self into everything I do.

I am in complete control of the outcome of my life. I see what I want, and I am currently working towards my dreams. So while I work in an office, working for my bosses, working for my clients, I can say this: I work hardest for myself.

I’m only 23, so it’s hard to know exactly where I will end up in life, but as I said, I am in complete control. So if I have any say, I know now that not only am I ready to achieve my dreams, I am prepared to get there. I’ve been reading up on industry news, books from the old pros, and honestly, I think it’s in all of us to work for ourselves and build the life that we want.

So work for yourself above everything. There’s no use in wasting time doing something you don’t love. Look after yourself and live the life you want. It’s not selfish, it’s necessary.
