Well after working a weekend of 12 hour shifts I had a well earned lie in this morning. The housework is ongoing in the form of trips from the washer to the dryer. After a trip to Tesco’s, dinner is in the oven. I have a few things on my list to complete today, namely, writing this blog, replying to emails (which involve aiding a lady concerning family history (part of personal family tree, not business related, so could take some time) and making sure I have all I need ready for the class tomorrow. I also 'need' to go to a my friend’s house and watch the latest two episodes of ‘The Walking Dead’ lol!
This song inspires an idea of my dream job and not what I actually do as a job to pay my bills…
So how did I do? It is now 9pm and I have not yet replied to email and reckon it may have to wait until tomorrow after class? I have organised my file from the random pile it was in, into order and into the folder. I have noted down some costs. I have imagined what I would do with a £500 investment and I have watched one episode of ‘The Walking Dead’ lol! Although my friend has inspired an idea that I will be working on now while my water is heating so I can have a nice relaxing bath 😊
So….before and after a bath I worked at designing a flyer, made some notes and generally did not do anything I was supposed to do?!? In fact, as I made some notes I had an idea so made a title ‘Ideas’ then this happened…
I forget what my idea was???? Time for bed….tbc….
Got to bed after 12 and struggled to sleep, my brain is working overtime! Up with laptop open before 6am. Sure I can have a doze after class?
Another great class today, I blushed profusely lol!
We had two speakers today, guiding us on MEDIA TRAINING, PUBLIC SPEAKING COACHING AND LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT and ONLINE MARKETING. Links below.
Today opened my eyes to the fact that I am not an amateur, I have a talent and I should embrace it and be more confident in myself! (Still slightly dubious but working on it lol)
This video clip was mentioned and the fact that if you tell yourself, “You can do this”, “You have a talent” etc whilst looking in the mirror, in my case whilst drying my wet head of hair or plucking my chin lol! I can convince myself and my attitude will change over time. I like this idea 😊 I can’t wait to strike this pose in my everyday job lol!
So many inspirational women in one room! Two of which can help me in my progress. No names yet but one who has a business idea that will at some point involve ancestry related projects and another who, in a past life, went into the ancestry business herself, you know who you are, and I thank you both and am grateful for the encouragement.
NETWORKING – VERY IMPORTANT!!!!! I have learned this 😊
I know what I need to do to make changes to my website, a clear definition of product and price is foremost.
Implementing it will take time and lots of effort, which is fine, I can do this!
After class today, I did everything and nothing, I floated through all ideas and suggestions but got nothing done. I think I need to walk away for a moment, rest my brain. Tomorrow I will relax, have a lie in and during my nightshifts, 7pm-7am, two of, I will attempt to create a list of things to do so when off at the weekend I can attempt to complete……wish me luck! 😊
P.S. Still haven’t replied to e-mail or sent an important message I need to send….progress….slow….working on it!
