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:
- responding to a government RFP due in a couple weeks,
- working toward Women-Owned-Business certification,
- prepping for taxes,
- responding to PSU student questions,
- 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!
