Ever feel like you're stuck on a hamster wheel, making no progress? Eve Evans helps us change our perspective. Elisa Hamster Wheel or Potter's Wheel? By Eve Evans "Why am I not getting anywhere?" I sat frustrated and disappointed, feeling like I was on a hamster wheel in a business pursuit. During the Great Recession (2008) I became a realtor. I invested a lot of time, money, and energy but got zero results. I just kept spinning around the wheel until I was forced to return to a corporate job. I worked outside my chosen field for the next nine years until I burned out. After a long period of prayer, I elected to leave my corporate job, get some much-needed rest, and determine what was next.
