# 27 (2013) Money Can’t Buy You Happiness

I have always said I’d rather be doing a job I hated and earning money than doing no work at all. Spike Milligan said ‘Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you a more pleasant form of misery‘. He was so right.

It’s been two months since I did any actual paid work and loath though I am to admit it I feel like a business failure. Of course, I don’t have to put myself through it. I would rather be earning money at a regular day job than creating for free. It’s a matter of fact that I have to honour the landlord, British Gas, Orange, Anglian Water, Lincoln City Council and Virgin Media first before my personal creativity. Worrying about my business and all the associated domino effects that I get from not earning is killing my creativity and right now sitting in an office doing the 9 – 5 doesn’t sound so bad.

So I’m job hunting because I am sick of doing nothing, worrying about the basics and fed up with trying to work out how I’m going to be able to afford to move in April.

I’d rather run my business on a part time basis than give it up completely.

Call it changing the plan for success.

    It's never easy being in a creative industry is it ? Musics the same. We seem to be the first in line to be cut out of peoples budgets when times are hard. Best of luck…thinking of you, Steve. xx
