Day 141 (00:08)- I didn’t record much today, I spent the day doing “grunt work” with personal stuff… cleaning our apartment, cleaning out my inbox and attempting to get organized. I probably shouldn’t use work days for these kinds of things but sometimes it all piles up and it just needs to get done!

Day 142 (00:08) – We placed an order on a new laptop today!!! I’m so excited! We got the new 15” MacBook Pro in space gray! It’s scary to invest in my business when I haven’t made a profit yet, but we’ve prepared for these things ahead of time so it’s not too bad. I’ve known I was going to need a new computer since mine started having issues a few months ago and in Vlog #86-92.

I finished part three of the online course I’m creating! There is still so much to do but a few months ago I never imagined myself doing any of this so being more than half way through creating my first product is a big deal! I feel very proud and excited about the possibilities. On the flip side though I miss working on my lifestyle blog and creating content for my health and wellness Instagram account. Today I wondered whether I should go back to working on my personal brand “full force” after I wrap up this course…

Day 143 (05:36) – As much as I miss working on my personal brand I know I’m doing the right thing by starting this business FIRST and I think it’s normal to question things and to want to make sure I’m going in the right direction. Sometimes I just need to take a moment to remind myself of these things especially when I feel I’m moving too slowly. I am determined to start my online photography business FIRST. I don’t want to add any pressure to the things I do in health and wellness and I don’t want my personal brand to become my “job”, at least not yet.

Thank you for watching, enjoy!
