I have been sick this weekend so I am kind of pictureless this manic monday so I will be throwing some random pictures and things at you through out this post. My sickness has also left me without a voice so I am throwing a lot of jabber at you in text form. :) So Enjoy!
So today was my first attempt at officially giving myself a schedule for my little Run 2 the Wild business and so far I have gotten no where lol. I woke up early but I have a really bad cough and its aggravating me to death so I will give it one more day to see if this horrible sickness will leave my body.
|bought these shades on etsy this weekend... maybe a package in the mail will make me feel better ;)|
As for everything else... its falling apart! Not really but it feels like it at times. I just can't seem to get where I want to get with my business without something taking up a big lump of cash. It is so annoying and enough to make me want to give up. I guess one reason I hate facebook at times is because you see everyone's achievements and occasionally failures. It makes me feel like I am behind and that I need to be doing more which I know is not the case but it overwhelms me. I just feel like I am slowing down and need to get back up to speed... being sick doesn't help.
I also would love to have a business partner.... someone to share it with and someone to help this little thing grow. It seems like everyone around me is very involved in there commercial jobs and they work that 9-5 so they really don't have time. Just hearing everyone talk about how much there commercial jobs sucks irritates me because I guess I feel like I would never go back to that again. At this point though if I don't get my butt up and start going at it like I did when I first started I may be getting that 9-5 job again.

be sure to check out their facebook!
These ladies are very sweet and I consider them my online buds! They keep me smiling!
The things that make a 9-5 job great are that you get a break. Being a at home business... I really don't physically get a break. It's always in my face and on my mind. Another thing is that you get a steady check and benefits. My at home business cash depends on what I put into it and as for benefits forget it. Another thing is that you have someone telling you what to do next. My little business gets more confusing and elaborate everyday... I am getting to the point where I don't understand things and sometimes don't even know what I can do next to make things grow.
The things that make me want to keep my little stay at home business are the fact that I am my own boss and I control what happens. Another is that I get to do what I love and see others enjoy that! I also get a steady flow of cash rather then waiting a week for a check. I also love the fact that I get to do so many different things instead of just working a assembly line. I do feel like trying to own your own business is like school again in the fact that you have to start teaching yourself new things. I love the design aspect of the business, the photography aspect, and the creating!
I was thinking and thinking last night of all the artistic "gloves" I have tried on and none of them have really stuck but I do all of them in bits and pieces with my business. I just wish I could figure it all out... can you tell this sickness has me a bit in the dumps.
If only... right?
I need to be patient. I need to be happy. I need to be thankful. I need to be positive.
So today I will focus on those things and hopefully tomorrow will be more productive!
