10” x 10” acrylic on wood panel I wish organs were actually rainbow pastel colors and never aged or failed. They’re cool anyway though. Now I’m going to hide this painting for a few days cause we’ve been on quite a roller coaster together and need some time apart.
Are you self-employed? What keeps you motivated? Sure, being self-employed makes the end result of your efforts more abundant, but getting there requires relentless effort and is often a blessing in disguise. Setting boundaries is important, especially if you work at home and especially if your job "looks fun". People really do think you're not working. What has helped me stay motivated over the past ten and half years of self-employment are a few small and simple rules I hold myself to every day. 1. I know my worth. I've said no to a lot of jobs that just don't meet my minimum requirements. When I stopped selling myself short and walking away from work I was not passionate about, more offers came my way. Having that level of confidence shows others you have a grip on your avenue of expertise and will not sell yourself short. You'd be surprised how many people actually appreciate that. 2. I'm Disciplined (and sometimes rigid). The feeling of being in charge of my daily schedule can be quite relaxing, but it is also a double-edged sword if not taken seriously. I set a rigorous agenda and stick to it. There is no other way around it. 3. I Remind Myself Daily Why I'm Doing This. It's a very important, daily affirmation because sometimes the waters do get muddied and you just want to throw in the towel. 4.Grow. In my business, a sign of success is showcased by the number of people I interact with daily. Sometimes before 6 am I have had a conversation with so many people, I feel like I've lived a whole day. While that can be exhausting, it's also motivating...meeting new people, networking and reaching out to others is also one of the most exciting parts of my day. I try to always find the good in it. 5. Treat Myself. This TWO-INGREDIENT PUMPKIN CAKE with APPLE CIDER GLAZE is the best way to kick off my fall season.

Nytt på bloggen! - Bilder er et viktig visuelt virkemiddel. De visuelle valgene du tar for din bedrift er viktigere enn noen gang, og kan bli et av dine viktigste markedsføringsverktøy denne høsten! - Jeg anbefaler alltid kundene mine å bruke egenprodusert innhold. For sjansen for at andre også benytter seg av de samme bildene som deg,er tilstede med en gang du bruker ‘Stock Photos’. - ... men ikke alle har en egen bildebank eller en flink fotograf tilgjengelig til enhver tid (I wish!). Eller kanskje du befinner seg helt oppstartsfasen med sin virksomhet, og ikke har rukket å tenke på bilder en gang!? Kjenner du deg igjen? - Da kan «stock-bilder» være en super ressurs! I dagens blogginnlegg finner du mine 3 favorittsider for gratis ‘Stock Photos’ - Direktelink i profil >>>
. معمولا کسانی در مسیر زندگی و در راه هدفمان نا امیدمان میکنند که خودشان در آن مسیر هیچ تجربه ای ندارند ولی مصرانه از نشدن های اون کار برامون تعریف می کنند. اما کسانی که اون مسیر را رفته اند، ساکت اند و منتظرند که از آنها بپرسید تا راهنماییتان کنند. 🔴یاد بگیرید در هر کاری با هر کسی مشورت نکنید، معمولا هر کسی در یک چیز تجربه دارد، یکی در کسب و کار، یکی در روابط بین زوجین، یکی برای تحصیل، یکی برای مهاجرت و ... . 🔴یاد بگیرید آدم درست هر کاری را پیدا کنید و با او مشورت کنید تا در آینده نگویید میخواستم فلان کار را بکنم اما فلانی منصرفم کرد. 🔴⭕⚫ #فروش#بازاریابی#تبلیغات#آموزش#یادگیری#روانشناسی_فروش#رفتار_مصرف_کننده#مارکتینگ#کسب_و_کار#مهارت#تجارت#مدیریت#فروشنده#برند#صنعت#استارتاپ#موفقیت#بهبود_فردی#خلاقیت #sales#marketing#advertising#learning#training#managment#trade#startup#business#success#creativityfound
i am currently being exposed to a wealth of knowledge in life. in my biblical classes in grad school, i am seeking to understand the Bible, and therefore God. in my counseling grad school classes, i am seeking to understand people. . and while all of this learning is quite insightful + life-giving, it is also quite overwhelming. how will i ever know enough about anything? . answer: i won’t. i previously HATED this answer. “i need to define. i need to fully understand, and i’m not stopping until i do.” . na. i am slowly learning that a) this will never ever happen and b) that is okay because c) it was actually intended this way. . i wouldn’t say that i’m yet on this side of full-on loving the uncertainty- if that even ever actually happens- but i am learning to embrace the mystery, and honestly, there is SO much more freedom. i’m stepping outside of the self/others-imposed boxes. wanna join? . for now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. now i know in part; then i shall know fully, even as i am fully known. —1 corinthians 13:12
One of my first blog posts I ever wrote for Lux + Vita was about how to use Linktree for your Instagram bio so that you could have multiple links in your bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Until just recently, I realized that I didn’t need to use a third-party program to do this...I could just use my own website! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do I mean by that? I could create a page on my website that wasn’t linked anywhere on my site where I could add whatever links or information to that page I wanted and design it specifically to be viewed on mobile (since that’s where we all check our IG).⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Wanna see what my social landing page looks like or even read the whole post about this Linktree alternative? Check out the link in my bio 😉
