Getting sh*t done!

getting sh*t done

Hello there folks! The last two days have been busy but not necessarily¬†in a good way. I mean, I did spend it on working on my business but not all producing products. I spent the first day listening to¬†Fizzle podcast and reading the Fizzle Sparkline. They are so very informative and funny to boot. They give no-nonsense¬†tips and recommendations from their own experiences of running an online business’.

I found a few different blogs that I subscribed to but one I thought I would mention is Ittybiz. She had an article on 30 lessons I learned from creating over 30 products that I found very interesting. Definitely lessons I can put to good use. She also had an article on branding that will help me find my own brand. It is called How to find out your brand in 20 minutes  (or less). Plus there was a small e-book on branding with it.

“you should always focus on your dream and everything else will fall into place”

Where did my mojo go?

where did my mojo go

Sigh! Let me start by talking about yesterday, Sept 19, 2017. I did what I had a feeling was coming with my full-time job. I resigned. It was a hard decision but considering I had missed the day before because of the anxiety I was getting over going on the phones and then it kicked back in when I got to work. We weren’t even on the phones yet, just starting training for it and it sent my anxiety through the roof.

My supervisor hated that I was leaving. I was one of his top performers in quality and performance. I didn’t mind what I had been doing and would have stayed if it weren’t for those pesky phone¬†calls. Some might be saying “just get over it” but anxiety is not something you can just get over. Sometimes if you’re lucky you can work THROUGH it but that is not always the case.

Day not going according to plan…

workspace

I wasn’t going to post today but after the day didn’t go as planned I thought why not. I had intended to work on my digital designs and a page from my weight loss planner but so far that has not happened. My motivation is so not there. Not sure how I finally picked up my laptop and started working on this.

Instead, I have been playing around with this WordPress¬†blog. I couldn’t get the comments to work on it and it took me forever to figure it out. Seems it is just a fluke with the user interface and all I had to do was uncheck and then recheck the comments box and refresh. Wala, comments are now working.

Hi there!

Well, where to start. I will start by telling you a little about myself and why I am blogging. Before I start though I just want to let you know that I am not a writer by trade, nor enjoyed it during college.¬†Although I did get A’s in my Technical Writing class, that is a whole different cup of tea. I am not a people person so corresponding with you will be a growing experience itself.¬†Also,¬†pardon me if my thoughts are sometimes jumbled, kinda goes along with the mental illness. I will get to that in a minute.

A little about me, I am in my late 40’s, single and prefer it that way. I have 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren. I live with two and they are a handful but I love them to pieces. I have a B.S. in Business Information System. It was pretty much a jack of all trade degree in Information Technology. So nope, not an expert at all and it has been so long ago that I don’t remember much that I learned. That leads me to the mental aspect of my blog and why I am blogging.
