I have been working 15 hour days and weekends. Free time is spent huddled in bed scouring research reports.
We reported our earnings at 5am this morning.
Doofus I’m dating, “Why do you have to go in so early?”
“We report at 8am eastern time, 5am pacific time–before the market opens.”
“But why don’t you just go in later?”
“WE REPORT BEFORE THE FUCKING MARKET OPENS, YOU DICKWAD! It’s my job to talk to investors, to walk them through our financial statements and loan portfolios. This is what I do for a living.”
I get the same reaction from everyone. “I’m so sorry you have to work this weekend…That sucks!…Do you ever get a break?…You work so hard.”
I couldn’t do what I do every quarter if I didn’t love my job. How anyone can do what they do for 8+ hours a day and not love what they’re doing is beyond me.
Go find your passion. Go do it. Love what you do and make money doing it.
