Wednesday, I attended the Smarter Business Workshop held by Anne Ruthmann. The whole day gave me ideas and knowledge to implement my business and hopefully see it grow and take off. However, I think that the biggest thing that I have taken away from the day is the fact that I am the one who has to make this happen. Now. I need to stop making excuses, stop putting other things first and stop saying "Oh, when this is done, or that is done, then I'll work on my business". There are things behind the scenes that I need to get organized and in line. My pricing structure, my portfolio, other business related stuff that doesn't involve the fun of taking pictures then uploading and editing them. But that's okay. I need to do these things and I need to do them now. They are not things that will happen in one day, but I am going to start scheduling time to work on all of them. There I said it. I am putting it out there in the universe. I am going to start making a schedule for myself. Not going to try and schedule, I AM going to schedule. I have a lot going on, but I take those things on. It's who I am, and it's how I function best.
Awhile back I tried using the Teux Deux app on my iPhone, just for a week, but it really did help. I am that person who never feels like she is doing enough. Having lists and crossing off items, made me not only accomplish more, but also let me see that sometimes I really am accomplishing enough already. (and I am totally guilty of adding things to the list after they are done, just so I can cross them off! Hey, I want credit :-)
I have another post coming soon about where I've been, cause when I looked at my blog, I haven't blogged since October! Whaaaat?!!! Shameful.
Here's a hint about that post:
