From the looks of it out my window, it's a beautiful day today!
And I'm out of bed and ready to get some work done. After I run a few errands, that is.
Being self-employed sounds great, doesn't it? Working from home, no set schedule, no boss...
No sick leave pay, no benefits, no salary...
I love making jewelry. I love doing craft shows, meeting customers, seeing what they like and making custom pieces for them.
I wanted to take this business to the next step: to do more and bigger shows, get back into some stores, write a book, do a newsletter, etc. However, I don't want to eat, sleep and live jewelry 24 hours a day 7 days a week. There has to be a balance between work and a personal life.
While I'm unemployed as far as a "real" job, there are things that need doing around the house, too. Like cleaning out cupboards, closets and drawers, having a garage sale, cleaning house, paying bills, balancing the checkbook, etc, etc.
For now, it's time to get outside and enjoy the weather!!
