This summer I have given into my children and worked very little. And you know what? QuirkyLime survived, I survived and my children survived too. I did the minimum possible like sending orders out and receiving an award!! Not any award, but a super Bronze Junior Design Award, I may call QuirkyLime an award winning business, now how cool is that!
Apart from feeling proud, excited and have gained a real confidence boost, (another milestone!), I feel pretty honoured to be beside cool brands such as honey&toast, sons and daughters ( the coolest sunglasses) the cool shop Olive loves Alfie, and a massive brand such as Little Bird by Jools Oliver.
I should have social media-ed the sh*t out of it, but I didn't as I was having time with the girls. I am now ready for everybody to go back into the normal routine next week. and I can become a normal small business again. I learnt a few valuable lesson though
1 - business wise. Nothing collapses or falls apart too badly it is not fixable
2- Having time completely switched off makes you very creative, not to be confused with creatively active - I have many ideas in my head (none worked out, as I had hoped)
3 - I have had time to think about my business and not work in it, but on it
4 - I still like playing with lego, and can build some awesome houses, cars and boats
5 - best of all, I feel September as this oyster of free time, I am hoping for a super improved efficiency, a new knack of prioritising the right things and actually working less but achieving the same amount if not more.
For me, September is the new year, I go with School year. So these are 'my new year's' resolutions:
An improved efficiency,
A new knack of prioritising the right things
Working less but achieving the same amount if not more.
there you go, you heard it first! what are your plans?
