Hi π it me. Hope you all enjoying the long holiday weekend. I can't believe how quickly feb is going by...β .β At the beginning of this month, I met up with a group of kickass SF lady bosses I admire. Among other things, we shared with one another one goal we each wanted to be held accountable for in February. I believe there is tremendous power in speaking things out loud and was very moved by our morning together.β .β As some of you may know, Ive struggled for years with this concept of "work life balance." I left my full-time job as a lead designer partly in search of this balance and thought that perhaps freelancing might bring me one step closer. While much happier, Ive actually worked more and harder this past year freelancing than I ever have. π¬ Being your own boss and running own your business are not without its challenges, that's for sure.β .β This past year, I would start working before josh woke up and continue working until I passed out at night. Every. single. day. I got to work with wonderful clients, met my financial goals, and build my business, but I was no closer to finding that balance. I wanted to build new relationships, prioritize my relationship with josh, but instead I always chose to prioritize work. I didn't like it and wanted to make a change. β .β So, my goal for this month I shared with our group was to "work less" - specifically, work no more 2 nights a week at home after dinner. It might not seem like a big deal, but to me, this seemed like a big challenge.β .β Now, a little more than halfway through the month, and while I haven't scored a 100%, I've scaled back working in the evenings significantly and am so glad I committed to actually trying to make a change towards finding balance (instead of complaining and being hard on myself about it). I'm far from having anything figured out hah but looking forward to seeing how I do the rest of the month and hoping I can make this my new reality β€οΈ β .β What are some goals you're working towards? Care to share any with me? I'll hold you accountable via annoying messages! πβ .β .β .β .β .β .β .β Oh and Josh took this picture of me the other day and I liked it βοΈοΈβ β
Io dico sΓ¬ al calendario editoriale, sia per il blog che per i tuoi canali social! Γ l'unico modo per non restare mai senza parole, per essere sicura di comunicare quello che fai in modo strategico. Puoi farlo su carta usando un quaderno come quello che vedi nella foto (l'ho trovato su Etsy) oppure su un foglio Excel. Fai una lista degli argomenti di cui ti occupi col tuo biz e "spalmali" sulla settimana o sull'intero mese: marketing per i tuoi prodotti, i tuoi post sul blog, le tue ispirazioni, i dietro le quinte, le foto dei tuoi prodotti o di te al lavoro, i tuoi video o quelli che ti ispirano... le possibilitΓ sono infinite, devi solo metterti nei panni del tuo lettore/cliente ideale: cosa si aspetta da te? Quali sono i suoi dubbi? Come puoi aiutarlo? Hai mai provato a buttare giΓΉ la lista dei tuoi macro-argomenti? ******** Foto di @ruffinimartina

This week has been further proof that deciding I don't need a desk and a full-time contract to have a fulfilling career was the best thing I ever did. Life is sweet and almost always sunny in freelance land. βοΈ(Also: Read my review of the best bikinis for active vacations--including this one--today on @sporteluxe)

Happy Monday! One of the things I love about freelancing is that you get to set your own hours, you choose the gigs you take on, you get to work from home, you get to set your rates, and you get to choose your clients. I also love that you could have a day job and still freelance on the side. You can earn a little extra income or you can make it a full-time income. I love the flexibility that freelancing provides me with. What are some of the things you love about freelancing? ππ P.s. If you're new to freelancing, find out what you should focus on 1st in my blog post. Link in bio π #freelancewithoutfear πΈ@macintoshmatt
First port of call after delivering the childerbeasts to sports camp was the gym. Feel like I'm back in the swing of it now, but I was still beetroot red an hour later when I did my first hangout! Just realised how unlike a standard gym building my gym is, looking st this picture!
