Such a busy week and hopefully only gets busier.
I have been busy with uploading all my tax documents to mt Tax Preparation Place. First I had to sit and put eveything in QuickBooks - since I had not started that yet. I purchased quickbooks, put all my info in - then had to scan all the papers because my tax preparer could use quickbooks if I followed some of their guidlines but I just didnt want to add more headaches to my list of things to do today. LOL I sent them the paperwork the way they are accustomed to.
Through writing some articles for this business I have reconnected with some of my old school friends and they are also doing some kind of business on the side and wanted me to buy their stuff which I did. One of the companies actually fits my Natural site so I became a consultant for that company also. What I am noticing is that I am growing in many ways all at once. Not making a bunch of cash... which i really would like to accomplish - but I am reconnecting, venturing out and enjoying it all.
Of course, my "day job" is having issues - not with me but with a co-worker. And three people quitting so I have to cover those hours as well as figure out how to build a schedule short three people. Fun Fun. One quit because she is a kid and didn't really want a job in the first place it seems is quite apparent now, and another was a kid that just has a heavy schedule at school and she thought her school work and sports were suffering. She chose school over us.... cannot blame her for that. The third is the owners daughter that has a toddler to take care of and an infant... so .... once again, we come out low on the priority list.
So as you can all see - I have been a bit too diversified this week. I realize I cause a lot of my own issues because I go in too many directions at the same time.
I still accomplished two huge goals, got my PDF done and got my taxes sent in. HUGE - now to clean my house...... yea, maybe tomorrow. LOL
There are so many ways to grow your business. Keep watching for every opportunity. My goal now is to take a day to tackle each part of the business - One day my brick and mortar store gets my main attention, the next day perhaps write articles for my website, the next day work on setting up the new soy candle business I want to promote, the next day will be my traditional job day to get all my paperwork done, one day devoted to housework, and one day devoted to outside work, the final day of the week to Thank God for all the opportunities, to reflect on my week and plan my next one coming up - to go see my grandchildren and daughter and to stop and "smell the roses".
I am thankful for all my life is and I am thankful for all of you here.
Take Care and for a while, I'm back. :)
