Have you ever gotten to the end of the month and you realize that you haven’t put much effort into social media? You eyeball your analytics and you see your numbers slightly dropping because you haven’t been promoting your content, products, or services as much. We’ve all been there. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day sometimes to really do it all.
Here’s the truth about working from home, whether you’re a freelancer, remote worker or self-made entrepreneur: you’ll always have something better to do than work. That’s why “productivity tips” is the no.1 phrase used by freelancers who have no idea how to get their lives together… This will be a story on how you’ll get there as well!
Things were very different when I started using WordPress in 2007.

Did I even shower today? I’m too ashamed to even admit how often I ask myself that question. Seriously… Did I even take time out of my so-called “work day” to wash my butt? I mean, chances are that if you have to ask yourself, then the answer is likely ‘No’.

I’ve always been anti-launch. I’ve seen it so many times – new entrepreneurs desperate to get it “right” to the point that it takes them months, some over a year just to finally launch their website, launch their product or service, and actually put themselves out there. No. Stop doing this to yourself. Website launches are ridiculous.
A client fired me recently. I’ve had clients sever contracts for any number of reasons… But fired? I’ve been a graphic designer for 10 years… I’ve never been fired before. I honestly didn’t even know how to process the concept of it. What was I supposed to do now? What did me getting fired from this job actually mean for me as a business owner?
