How I Love July!

Sorry for the delay in blog posts, just when I was getting into a routine, things got busy. But busy is good so I can’t complain. Great news to share, from my local news broadcast I already have one new client which looks like it will be a great opportunity. I never imagined throwing myself out in front of hundreds of viewers and now the phone won’t stop ringing. Sometimes when your dreams get so big and your determination is getting the best of you, you just need to hold your breath and jump and this time things really paid off for me. I was hesitant and always cautious but knew if I really wanted to make this break into entrepreneurship this would be it, there’s no turning back now.

The same week of the news broadcast was a much needed vaca for the family, it was very nice to get away even though it was just for 2 days. Sometimes you need to mentally check out for a bit in order to let new ideas and opportunities arise.

I’m back now and ready to get back to work, ready to make things happen! However, I also realized that I’m now at my 8 month mark and will be having this little bun in the oven real soon! Gotta start the nursery mural in between everything else but I love chaos, well organized chaos that is.

I hope everyone else is having a great July and if you’re in the U.S. you’re enjoying this crazy heat wave!

Awesome Opportunity!

Lately I’ve had many ideas across my mind to branch out and become a true entrepreneur. I’ve known for quite a while that I want to work for myself and that I want to have a flexible schedule, I want to be able to work and be with my kids. Something I knew that was always a real possibility, not too much to ask and something to strive for. It’s been my goal for the past 8 years now and I think it’s finally coming true. One of my marketing ideas to  help promote myself was to put up simple flyers (that I made in Photoshop) around town to promote my business. I didn’t think much of it and was really hoping for just a little bite, a few phone calls and few new clients. Well, a week after hanging up 4 flyers I got my first call and it was the mother of all calls! The local news station! I did not expect this to be my first call! I’m getting two, 3 minute segments to explain my business and promote myself!

Never give up! Lesson learned, after 8 long, hard years its paying off. Always strive for what you know you can do and always reach for your goals!
