Y’all it’s been such a crazy year and it’s only March. March 18th at that like ok 2020 we get it, let me head back to 2019 real quick so I can press restart. SHEESH!!!!
Everyone is freaking out about this quarantine thing smh. Buying ALL of the tissue, antibacterial products etc that they’ve never used and/or probably never used. And I’m just sitting here in survival mode like yeah I already know how this goes. Thank God for my tome
in the Army and growing up in the hood 😭😭😭.
So the main thing on my mind is one, my kids are all over the place and two, business is about to get hit hard, BUT GOD!
I‘m not so much worried about sitting in the house being an introvert I’m a homebody most of the time anyways. So I've literally been sitting back watching everyone freak out about being on lock down. The only thing I really miss is taking my walks through the neighborhood so now I’m oh no don’t touch and no you can’t come over lol. Once I heard that this virus is fatal to those of us with asthma I freaked out.
So, my kids have literally been in and on everything in my apartment lol. My two year old and five year old are always picking on each other and my eight year is clearly 15 stuck in a child’s body but hey, what do I know. I do feel for those parents and entrepreneurs who are not used to working from
with their children being home. Me on the other hand, this is everyday life.
Now as far as business goes, I’ve been keeping contact with other people to a bare minimum. Trying to keep thing clean and sanitized, thats gets even harder with a busy body for a roommate not knowing what germs they bring home.
Anywho, I’ve put out notices warning clients that I will not be taking any clients for any in person services until further notice. Since I work from home, I have to be really careful bringing people home where my children are. So my business has taken a big hit. With hair and makeup artistry being the main sources of income for my business.
I‘be been putting attention on other parts of my business like business product promo (blogging, creating content), modeling, and graphic design (business websites and creating logos). I will be offering another service called the New Business Package. This package will include the website, and add ons such as logo, marketing, site management, business social media accounts, and payment accounts for secure payment. I will also offer the EIN. Of course a contract will be created to ensure a professional working relationship for each project.
As far as regular everyday life goes, I’m trying to reconnect with hobbies that I love. A few of those hobbies include singing, writing (hence more frequent blog post), and designing jewelry (although it’s another form of income, not too many are blessed to do what they love for a living).
I guess the real goal is to find things to pass the time. I really love this quote that I found on IG, please don’t quote me I don’t remember the full quote or who said it but it went something like this: 👇🏽
“God put us in time out to recollect and reconnect with him and ourselves. Use this time wisely.”
Something like that. The is, things are crazy right now but never forget whose in charge. This too shall pass. Please don’t get lost in the chaos.
And if you’ve never prayed before, it’s never too late to start. God bless y’all 🙏🏽❤️
