FIRST WE DRINK THE TEA then we do the work. That's the motto here in Self Made Mother HQ (my lounge).
Have attempted my own stock-style images 📷 as part of my efforts to bootstrap this biz. Some have been more successful than others, but I find the process fun.
It's easy when you're setting up a new business to convince yourself that you NEED all the shiny new things. You don't. Yes, there are some smart places to spend your money 💷 but most aren't smart in the setup phase.
What are the business essentials you think are important to pay for? And, what do you think should be DIY'd 🛠 until you are profitable (/more profitable)?
#toolsofthetrade#21dfx week 2 day 1: ✅
The best part of this program is that after you've done the (hard!) workout once, you know you only have to do it 2 more times.
Today was the second time for #plyofixextreme so, only one more time with that baby!!
Spot the fake nail!
There's a 'handy' clue - evidence of which nail I use to strum, from Raw Fest, where I played outside without amplification...
After my actual human body 💃 my guitar 🎸 and my capo🗜️ this nail has become one of the most important tools of my trade!
As my strumming skills developed to accommodate new styles, I began wearing down my own nail to the quick very fast, and had to explore other options! I tried loads of different plectrums but the fake nail was the clear winner, so now it's a part of my monthly routine!
This is the lovely Alice at M Beauty (if you scroll through the pics), who always does it for me, and only once did I stray before quickly realising just what a super pro she is!! Yay Alice!
They do think I'm a bit weird at M Beauty just getting one fake nail, and regular nail salon appointments is not something I ever expected to commit to... so there we go... An odd but happy couple!
One of things I love about my job is seeing how tools of the trade differ from region to region and even crew to crew. These belong to the crew working on our RED booth build here at #BIRTV2017 . Tools like this may have been used by Poppop back in the day, here in Beijing, they are not uncommon #tradeshowlife#itsalmostover#toolsofthetrade @kdl4ever
Morning llotjafanatics! 😘 Com van les vacances? Cansats de torrar-vos a la platja o de penjar fotos de llocs exòtics a instagram? 🌴🌴 Alguna cosa ens diu que no. Nosaltres, ho reconeixem, us trobem a faltar una mica, així que ens estem possant les piles pel proper dissabte 16 de setembre amb el Festival del Disseny. T'hi esperem amb ganes de comparar moreno! ☀

My partner is starting architecture school tomorrow (!) and he purchased this supply kit. Sharpies, x-acto knives, self-healing mats, tacky glue... hey, these are just a bunch of tools for zine-making! 😋 Man, I'm a sucker for artists' and office supplies...
