Motivation For Coping With Work Whilst Working On My Business..

Ehhh. Bleh…. Meh.

These are all sufficient words that I would describe how I feel after this week at work.
I just had the worst week, my employers are doing the dirty when it comes to my annual leave and job keeper and when I tried to explain to them I belived they were doing the wrong the think, I got a belittling, mansplaining condescending email.

The level to which I fell ‘DONE’ in this role, I cannot even put into words.
As a result, I have learned to develop a coping mechanism whenever I find myself in a situation at work where I watch a series of poor decisions and choices unfolding, I think to myself, what have I learnt here that I will apply to my business?

I find it’s the only thing that is keeping me sane, and to be fair, I have learnt a lot about running a business as my 10 years as a Receptionist (aka unrecognised Office Manager, Personal Assistant, Bookings Coordinator, Operations Manager, Customer Service Rep, Mediator) in so many different industries.

Anyway, I have made progress the past fortnight with my project. I have found a tech pack designer using the website Upwork, and to be honest, it didn’t take as long as I thought it would. She is currently working on the first of three of my project designs. I have also decided on my colours and patterns for my designs. That being said there were very little freelance options in regards to hiring people who had the necessary skills and experience in designing for my project.

I have been working on my business plan, which is now 30 pages and still incomplete, been researching my marketing strategies and formalising my marketing campaign.
I have been watching Masterclass videos ( I can’t get enough of Anything Anna Wintour and Sara Blakely is such a relatable inspiration as she was in a similar situation to me and at the same age).


I am soooo itching to announce what it is, but I am just not quite there yet. I will be announcing my project plans in July.
