You see, early in my business, I was working for a combination of 3 different jobs. and I don’t mean clients, I mean JOBS. And no - my schedule each week varied due to the nature of work I was doing! Some weeks had a flow and other weeks had long periods of time without WIFI to work on pretty blooms. It also meant I couldn’t schedule appointments (even for an hour) on these days because I was under a major time crunch!
I'm all about bridging efficiency into my life, and setting realistic expectations for myself that are achievable. I want to leave my business days proud of the job I accomplished, and sometimes just saying I can shut down the computer when I finish my tasks and play outside is a worthwhile investment.
