Hello... how quiet it has been around here. It's been rather busy between moving into my new office and staying as up to date as possible with work. Today is my first official Monday in my new space. I kicked off working here last week, but I spent the majority of the time out and about which included an inspired day out at the Design Indaba Durban simulcast. I have decided to work on my blog posts in a new way that suits my schedule better, so there won't be a MFM post every week, but I will have them dotted throughout the year. Today's picture is a quick snap from my office - I'll be sure to share the final product once done.
The Working Week in Review / Last Week:
Simply put... last week was too busy. It was one of those weeks that was spent driving, dashing and rushing. The results... a very tired me. I also hosted a workshop on Saturday which went really well. Yesterday, I recouped a bit and also headed into the office to hang some frames (with a very patient Daniel to help).
The Working Week Ahead:
This week is all about getting things done. I've ensured that the first half of the week is free - as far as consults go so that I can focus on admin, emails and getting projects done and ticked off. I have started my day off by planning out my day and several tasks for the rest of week. Feeling more inspired already!
Things I'm excited about this week:
Being in one place... my new office! It is so nice to be settled in. There are still a few small things to add like two more chairs, a rug and one or two small decor elements.
What will challenge me this week?
Ensuring I don't over schedule. I like to really use my time to the max, but sometimes that leaves little time for other elements within my life and business that also need attention.
A Few Notes:
Be sure to follow along on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. Part of my blog post time is now being dedicated to sharing more regular snippets of my work days on social media, including updates about the wonderful clients I'm working with.
In partnership with Decorex I am offering a workshop at the Durban and the Cape Town events. For details and tickets click here or here. I will be doing a blog post on this too.
On Friday the wonderful Kari of Lovilee featured me on her blog. Take a look at the interview and hear more about a few of my favourite things and my business tip for creatives starting out in busienss.
Have a great week!
