Hi loves!  I can’t believe August is over.  I mean seriously, where did that month go?  I can’t say I’m sad to see it go, though – because I’m pretty dang excited about September.  This month represents turning over a new leaf in my business & in my life.  I’ve been working hard to revamp all of my processes, define and ramp up project timelines, and even designing some pretty new informational packets for each project.  It’s a big deal!

I’m gonna get real for a minute.  Life as an entrepreneur has its perks & all, but it can also be really, really hard!  Don’t get be wrong – I love what I do – so so much.  But, I think that often small business owners start doing something because they have a knack for it or a love for it – and the business stuff goes by the wayside.  Then, it catches up.  You realize there’s a reason people have business plans, calendars, routines.  And you remember that not having them causes so much stress – disorganization, overbooking, and a whole slew of problems associated with those.  It can sometimes be a hard thing to overcome, and in my case, it’s definitely gotta change if I want to be living the life I want.  I’m excited to be opening up a new chapter, reorganizing my business, and getting things back on track so that I can provide better service to each of you lovelies & also stay a sane human being at the same time! 😉

I went on a last-minute trip to visit family in the Northwest & had a lot of time to clear my head & reevaluate the things that are important to me – I had planned on working the entire time, but because of some internet troubles, was unable to – & it was such a blessing in disguise, because I think my soul needed to breathe.  I hiked with my husband & toddler, spent time on the beach, & just tried to slow down for a minute.  I realized how important it is to define my goals, & to reevaluate often.  I’ll be honest – I work a lot.  And sometimes it feels like I’m missing out on my life because I’m just so, dang, busy.  It can be so hard to find the right balance, but I’m feeling so good about where things are heading.

 

I’m still working on a few things, but at the end of the day, I’m trying to remind myself that I’m only human.  I’m trying to become more of a “no” person so that I can do better at the things I say “yes” to.  And I know I’m not alone out there!  But don’t be too hard on yourself & try to cut yourself some slack.  You can do anything, but not everything.

September-06

I have so much to show you with these new changes and lots of goodies planned, so stay tuned!

xoxo,
Jess
