What a Week! #ROW80/12 Week Year Y10R1 EoW2

 

Hey there!

I still haven’t had the opportunity to put my goals into a spreadsheet, as I plan to do (hopefully, before the round is over!)

I do have a good reason for this – well, a lot of them, actually! In this crazy-busy week, I had coffee with one friend, brunch with another, put together a rather involved application packet for my Dream Client, who is hiring for the things I do, at the hours I want! I also attended a Solopreneur Women’s MeetUp, visited a potential dogtending client (it’s sad when people treat their dogs as though they’re nothing but property; I won’t be going there); found out a former client is going on vacation and will need someone to tend the dogs, cats, and chickens; and have solid leads on two more VA clients! I made my first PowerPoint and Loom presentations, too!

Life’s been busy in mostly good ways. I hope it’s treating you well, too!

 

I got a card from a fan fiction follower – yes, this IS my first official fan mail! =)
