I think I need an assistant to write down the million things that are going through my brain. Any takers? Required skills: mind-reading.
Seriously, while my craft room is practically finished, my mind is charging ahead into all the things I need to do.
- My creative mind is thinking about new paper flower designs, DIY tutorials and working on my next order.
- My practical mind is thinking about legal stuff, editorial calendars and social media accounts.
- My 40-year-old mind is thinking “I’m tired.”
I have a WordPress challenge coming up to help me get the blog off the ground. I’m reading a WordPress guide on my Kindle, paper copies of “The Martha Rules” and “Craft, Inc.” in my backpack. I’m also toting around every notebook I have ever scribbled a thought in, apparently–and adding more daily. I have clippings of events I want to be part of next year, to-do items written on random scraps of paper, and project ideas for about three different mediums scattered on my dining room table.
To an outsider, I’ll bet it looks like a bit of a mess.
Running a business requires a lot of you, in every possible sense–and I’m sure I don’t know a fraction of it yet. And while it sounds a wee bit overwhelming, I am loving every minute of it!
