You will find that my personal blog includes A LOT about business and marketing because I spend most of my day on the computer doing research and planning my business strategy. I absolutely LOVE being a freelance writer, film maker, and entrepreneur. However, I am only a beginner and I still have a LONG way to go to get my full time income where it needs to be. It is very AWESOME to have talent, education, experience, and the opportunities technology offers us, BUT if you do not channel your abilities in a way that earns money you will remain a pauper. That is a problem I am working on, which I will write a book about once I find the answer. :-) When you are a teen or a college student you think talent is enough to make you rich and famous, but when you get out in the real world you realize that A LOT goes into a successful career and that you have A LOT to learn.
I would like to say a few words about Weebly! I think it is AWESOME!!!!!! My other web host provider recently updated their site builder, and it is very similar to Weebly's tools, but it is not quite as good or as easy to use. I would like to do a few more Weebly sites, myself and if anyone asks me for a web host recommendation I will recommend Weebly. I am not a paid affiliate, I am just an average business woman who is pleased with Weebly's simplicity and ease of use.
I am continuing my studies as a legal secretary and I am getting a lot of good information. However, I would still rather be the boss who hires virtual assistants than be the virtual assistant myself. In any case I am acquiring some good skills that will positively keep me out of the fast food industry in case I REALLY NEED to go back to a bricks and mortar job. I plan to do EVERYTHING possible to stay independent. My work style is just very independent.
There is SO MUCH going on, as always, so let me just touch on a few things. I did ALL my spring cleaning last week. YAY!!!!! Now I can focus on my work! Many videos are in my editor, I need to finish a short fiction e-book, and then I want to try some nonfiction. I would like to write some courses in acting and independent film making, I am designing products for manufacturing, and I am planning the programming for our new Adele Smith Entertainment Youtube channel. Also, I am rehearsing some public domain songs to publish on CD Baby. I guess I do have the "Superhero Syndrome," but there are just SO MANY things you can do and you just have to work very hard to keep up.
I find that day/time planners have a very limited use. Inevitably, some things on my list will not get done some days and some I may not be in the mood to do some things. The best way to get everything done is to jot down what you want to accomplish overall and then make tiny "TO DO" lists on scraps of paper for your daily goals. I refer to my daily scraps of paper constantly. You won't get it all done, but since the list is in front of you you are more likely to complete those tasks within a few days. I hope I have given you some good ideas. I guess I better get back to ALL my work. :-)
