Working for a nightmare boss

The other day I worked from 8am in the morning to 3am the next morning. In the whole day I had 2 ten minute breaks. I was working with the app developer to finish the Five Stop Story app and get it into the app store before the end of the UK day.
Since I’ve started working for myself I’ve turned into a psycho boss. With only myself to control, I don’t allow myself breaks, I’m unsympathetic when I’m ill and I’m a┬ápedantic perfectionist about every email/ piece of content that goes out. In short, I’m a nightmare to work for!
The thing about working for yourself is that it’s truly your own responsibility. It’s not dogsbody work disguised as a development opportunity that someone else will take the credit for if it goes well and you will take the blame for if it goes badly. Whichever way it goes, the┬áresults are yours. Which is also the most motivational thing.
