Over the past 6 months I have been incredibly busy, working a few jobs plus being a mother and wife. Not to say that my life is different from anyone else’s because everyone I know is busy. But sometimes when you are not actually going to an office everyday, it seems harder to keep yourself organized. Especially your ‘me’ time, which is something I vowed to resolve in 2012. I always put myself last and have had some silly problems as a result (not eating right, not sleeping right etc.).
So part of this has meant streaming my Makeup business as well as my Stella & Dot business. At present, my goal is to spend at least 75% of my time on Stella & Dot and just 25% on hair and makeup. That means one to 2 makeup gigs per month and 4-5 jewelry gigs. I have to resolve myself to the fact that I can only do what I can do, especially at the age that my kids are at. They still need to be driven everywhere and also need me to assist with dance. I am really only booking special event makeup, or clients that have referrals. The good news though is that I have had a lot of business!
I am looking forward to partying more with women that are interested in hosting SD trunk shows, and giving them more time before and after! What I love about SD is the girl-time, because it is really something that can be missing from my everyday life. I am vowing to change that and savour the moments of FUN!
