Sharpened pencil’s at the ready…
To work from home has it’s benefit’s that’s for sure. You can wear whatever you want and of course I make the most of this. Expect to find me in running pants and a large hoodie whenever I’m indoors. The second upside is the time and hassle you save not having to travel to an office everyday. This is probably my favourite part of working from home. On the flip side motivation can sometimes slip and the distraction of YouTube or online shopping doesn’t make things any easier. There’s something to be said for a boss looking over your shoulder when you have a deadline to meet.
If you work from home I’m assuming you are freelance. If that’s the case then getting the job done is a priority because those bills won’t be paying themselves.
It’s been about 6 years since I went freelance and whilst it has it’s up’s and downs the overall experience has been positive. Previously I was working full time for a salon in London as a colourist. Then I set up a company with my boyfriend in Germany as we were preparing to launch our brand, Intensae nail lacquer. I combined working on the start-up with freelance jobs for a haircare brand to ensure the rent got paid each month. View Post
I received so much positive feedback from my recent post on confidence, how blogging is shaping me as a person. The inspiration to write that post suddenly came to me and I quickly wrote down everything I was feeling at that moment. In this sometimes materialistic world it’s nice to throw a bit of heartfelt realness amongst the perfectly staged ‘real lives’ we often put out. Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave a comment, it warms my heart : )
Today I thought it would be fun to share some things I have learned along the way so far. View Post
