Getting Our Life Together

Planners

Good news! Russ and I are transitioning into our own business for awhile and it’s going well. I’ve been working from home for a little over a year now and Russ started freelancing again at the start of this year. At first, it was a bit rocky in terms of getting consistent clients. But now, the light at the end of the tunnel is finally nearing! Russ is getting consistent work, he’s networking, and I think overall we’re very content at where we are.

Now, because of all of these changes coming at us, I’ve ran into a new hurdle: organizing. I’m normally the one who remembers appointments, keeps our schedules, and budgets. But add in a budding business, an Etsy store, and selling shirts for our other small business, and it gets confusing. There’s bills, invoices, one-time business expenses, regular business expenses, mortgage payments, insurance payments, etc…ugh. It takes major organizing skills. Good thing I love planners and organizing! It gave me an excuse to bust out my pens and purchase another notebook 😉

Monthly Planner Graph Notes Planner

This graph notebook was on clearance at Target. So, you know. I bought it. I like that it doesn’t have dates pre-written for you. And I’m a sucker for anything floral.

So here’s to hoping that I learn how to juggle all these new ventures. It’s been exciting going through all these new changes with Russ. I’ve always wanted to work from home with Russell and now it’s like a dream come true. I’m writing this blog post while sitting across the dining table from him as he edits videos. 🙂 It’s worth all the stress.
