Were you ever called "bossy" as a child? Oh, guuurrrl. As I think of all the young girls that have been called bossy as an attempt to shrink their personalities, tame them down, or shame them for taking charge, I cringe. So here's to celebrating all bossy girls young and old. Let's keep leading, taking new risks, and paving new paths forward.
I was inspired to start my business when I was tired of working in a cubicle and questioning the true value of my work. Starting my business changed my life, I work with amazing clients and partners, and I’m proud to do what I love. If you have questions about starting a side hustle while keeping a full time job, leave a comment as I’d love to respond!
Here's a bit of #travelblogger#mythbusting for you. I've met a lot of people recently who say, "So come on, tell me where you've been recently!" They expect tales of far flung mountains, exotic food and dodgy characters, and while that is sometimes the case, and I do spend an above-average amount of time out of the country, the truth is that most of the time I am here. On my sofa drinking gallons of tea and working for sub-standard pay. Most days I don't even get dressed (I did today though - go me) because the list of deadlines and work to do is almost not possible in the hours we are given in any one week, and who the hell has time to shower? When I am on the road I stay up until the early hours working and writing because taking time out to travel doesn't pay the mortgage. Most days I am pitching to editors of magazines, newspapers and websites, alongside writing for my blog, magazines, newspapers and websites I have already been commissioned for. It's a daily hustle of convincing people you can write good about something they haven't published before. While what I do is amazing - cause c'mon, being paid to travel is the dream - it's not a forever holiday as many people think. Oh, and homesickness is a very real thing, FYI, and it sucks. It's a wonderful, hectic, chaotic and exciting life, but it's not always as it seems on social media. Anyone else?! #travel#blogger#deadlines#freelancelife#working9to5#bloggers#travelbloggers#truths#hometruths#whataboutarealjob#working#workfromhome#workfromhomelife#sprollie#tealover#blogging#travelblogging
Gongur vid rúkandi ferđ viđ diskinum, og vit halda, at hann riggar knasandi gott aftur viđ dimma parisaralitinum á vegginum.
The counter is nearly finished now and it looks beautiful kissing the "dusky paris" color on our wall. #working9to5#pizzatime#tinoandhispizza#welovepizza
This morning I have to go in and explain social media platforms to my boss 🤣. I am so excited to go in and just share that I'm part of the creative industry. That I'm part of an industry that creates and serves others whether that be a client or another creative. I get to go in and explain to my boss that I'm part of a community that supports each other in person and online. I have been thinking about my meeting all morning and the creative industry. And I couldn't be prouder of the industry that I am apart of and serve! #creative#herestothecreatives#photographer#communityovercompetition#community
Working two jobs so you can eventually have one (your own business)? I know it's tough. I'm cheering you on... you've SO got this because:
1) You're already doing what most people aren't. You've dared to be different. You've got fire in your belly to make this work.
2) Someday you'll really be your own boss.
3) Your letter of resignation will be symbolic of one of your greatest achievements - you've taken control of your career AND built a business.
4) Your yoga pants miss you.
5) Clients or customers you haven't even met are excited to do business with you.
6) You're going to change someone's life for the better with your business (including yours!).
7) You're business is your beautiful contribution to the world, and the world really needs it.
