My Breakdowns and Breakthroughs
For January 2013
Hi again folks,
As I reached deep inside to trying to find the information I wish to pass on. Came up with this idea today; I hope you find this Post each month entertaining and useful.
Not a lot happened during January apart from scouting around for information or what things get my business off the ground.
Also my savings were getting down to a low uncomfortable level, so I ended up spending copious amounts of hours on the phone to various government departments.
You would really think they could afford a little bit more entertaining elevator music when you on hold. But this time ended up being fruitful as I discovered the amount of support that is available, you just need to ask.
I felt ready certain that my application to the new enterprise incentive scheme will be accepted. If it is approved, I will be spending 13 weeks in intensive studying to obtain my certificate 4 Business Management. But more importantly hot expense of excellent time with highly motivated new business people. Really was great spending that time that these people, you can see there were busting to talk about their business ideas. Also got to spend some time with Christine Patterson HETA, and look forward to doing an interview with her for the thoughts into action podcast. She has been a facilitator for the NEIS for quite some time, and the wealth of knowledge that she has is amazing. To look forward to that will be very informative and should be some great stories involved.
And also on a positive note,I ran my first WordPress workshop, which is incredible and it definitely didn’t go the way I thought it would. Really impressed me the power of a mastermind group, and now consider it an essential part of each of the free courses I run.
Time, time, time, never enough time. The frustrating how quickly the days of being going when you enjoying what you do and learning new skills. And I guess the expectations of myself are maybe set a little too high, but I would much prefer that and setting them to low.
Interruptions and distractions, another big hurdle I have found for this month is how easily I am distracted.
The kids are all working now but none of them have driving licences, so I end up being the taxi driver. And of course there are always some household duties to do.
As my business gets off the ground I’ll have to decide whether it is worth the expense of finding an office.
As I don’t have an area within the house where I can close the door, to separate myself from the day to day workings and needs of the family. Now don’t get me wrong, I have really enjoyed this time of reconnecting with the kids, and quite enjoy the simplicity of doing the dishes, ironing and cleaning.
