Starting A Pest Control Business Doesn’t Need To Be A ‘Grind’
Entrepreneurs across America are guilty of romanticizing “the grind,” but starting a pest control business shouldn’t feel like getting blood from a stone! There’s a better option: Pestmaster Services.
Does Starting A Pest Control Business Need To Be A Grind?
“You need to love the grind,” wrote Finn Kelly in a 2016 article for Smart Company. “Grinding is a part of being an entrepreneur.”
Is it though?
Kelly’s spouting a popular business rhetoric–one that’s endemic among entrepreneurs and self-starters, especially. Indeed, speaking to prospective business owners on a regular basis, we constantly here talk about “The Hustle,” or the grind; the coffee-as-a-three-course-meal, up-all-night, no-time-for-play life.
But does this truly reflect the daily life of successful business owners? Or, better question: does it have to?
Flying in the face of our romanticization of the grind is a huge body of research pointing to the importance of attaining a proper work/life balance. In a 2018 Forbes article, author Alan Kohll summarized how striking this balance leads to less burnout, lower stress, fewer physical health issues (e.g. hypertension, digestive troubles, chronic aches and pains and heart problems), and higher productivity.
Clearly, there’s more to the story. And it seems that the more is better philosophy doesn’t hold water.
