Being a solo-preneur has it’s own set of challenges. But what in the world are you supposed to do when you don’t have a staff to lean on in times when you’re desperately needed somewhere else?
Our first two weeks of homeschooling has been a learning experience for all of us. Especially for my husband and I. I honestly think we’ve learned more from homeschooling than our daughter has! But one major lesson I’ve learned is that I am the one in control of our schedules, and if we need to take a day off from school to go to the beach or to run errands, I can do that – guilt free!
While Lindsay is busy nesting and packing her hospital bag I’m also doing a little bit of planning on my own. Film stock has been chosen, my own bags have been packed, and a brand new Pinterest board for Motherhood Portraits has been created just for her.
Our workflow and routine is one that we follow with every single one of our couple’s wedding days in mind. Having such an organized routine has not only helped calm my nerves and lessen the risk of forgetting something important, but it has also helped us stay ahead of our wedding day schedules.
Wedding season has finally started for me. I feel like I’ve been in hiding since November of last year only to come out of my hibernation for weddings. (It’s a MUCH welcomed change!) And, last but not least, we’ve made the very important (albeit, also scary) decision to…homeschool our 5 year old daughter.
Over the past 7 years of being in business I’ve learned a lot about myself and how my brain processes information so I can hit a stride with working on projects. I get distracted easily, so I can’t work with music or the TV on in the background. I have to stop for frequent breaks so give my brain a second to unload. I have a tendency to focus INTENSELY HARD on one single project all day long, otherwise I feel scattered. Even the smallest little thing out of place bothers me until I fix it.
