The past week has been CRAZY. Ok, not really. But it sure feels that way. I’ve got several projects going on for active clients, in addition to:

  1. responding to a government RFP due in a couple weeks,
  2. working toward Women-Owned-Business certification,
  3. prepping for taxes,
  4. responding to PSU student questions,
  5. and creating estimates for new prospects.

Literally every night, I’m waking in the middle of the night, dreaming up new things about work – ok, my new business cards should look like X; the new website has to include Y; etc.

Also, Heyyy! I’ve lost 17.5 pounds since January 1, 2017. High five!

Can I sleep now?

Demir, my productivity/systems coach, had me in tears last week. He said, I wonder what the Kelly who puts in a lot of effort looks like? Are you going to wait until you’re 70 to find out? And I cried. Then I discussed with my husband, who actually kind of defended me, as in I *do* put in a lot of effort. The thing is, Demir was tapping into my own fear that I’m not making enough effort. After talking with my husband I realized… maybe it’s not about the effort. Maybe my pain is because I’m not making enough money!

Here’s to mo’ money in 2017!
