Working for Social Cap


My new professional life is in full swing.  I am so so grateful to start every day brewing a cup of fab and fierceness, getting into the office (across from my bedroom), checking the list made the end of day before for organized reference on a new morning, and grinding on multiple projects because if I or Hunter doesn't who's going to do it??? Life of a small business owner and I wouldn't change it for a minute!

We are growing and sorting what works, what can use improvement, we hustle and flow.  It's the stuff dreams are made of honestly.  I don't take it for granted and recognize that I've been working towards this my entire working career and for that I am so appreciative.

This far in my life, my professional background is in hospitality, higher education, editorial journalism, and corporate communications.  I value these experiences and industries tremendously but I gotta say, I will work 80 hours a week for ourselves instead of 40 for another.  Gladly.  I'm still doing so much of what I've been doing for others and their vision but now it's for my own clients and my own brand.

Let me be clear, working for myself is no easy fest.  There is stress and anxiety and all that, but my lord, it is a different kind. It's a better kind, the kind I imagine you should have as an entrepreneur and as a person.  My biggest thing is to stay focused and as long as my excitement outweighs my fear I'll sleep well.

Ok, well that's enough here. Got to get back to there.

Talk soon, stay creative,
Megan

Self care reset

We all hear the buzzwords self care more than ever these days. Every where you turn, a lifestyle blogger, health guru, or magazine article shares insight on ways to treat yo self to some basic T.

While I love modern discussions as much as the next girl, I’m aware sometimes it just doesn’t fit and you have to reset what isn’t working. For example, some weeks I am just done by the tine Friday hits. Hell, a rough Wednesday or Thursday has crept in there, too, requiring a pause and reflection for how best to naturally beat a funk or a “feeling of less than stellar”.

Here my top self care reset ideas for your consideration:

Drink water: Warm it with some lemon, try some green tea for an antioxidant boost, or just plain old room temperature is a sure way to get the boost to feeling a bit better.

Face it: Fewer things feel as good as a really great face mask. I love charcoal in particular lately and always feel refreshed and restored and ready to ‘face’ another day. See what I did t…

Blogtober Day 26, Who would play you in a movie...

Ohhh good one, Blogtober.

Someone once told me I reminded them of Drew Barrymore. They didn't say if it was for look or personality, so I'm not sure where they drew the conclusion from. See what I did there?

I threw this out to one of my very best and oldest friends Andrea. Talking it out, we agreed that Drew and I do share some similar qualities, both in personality and in dressing and accessorizing. Andrea reasoned that Drew is quirky and a little less traditional, much like me. I reasoned we have the same headbands:

I also recalled that when I was a little girl, everyone thought I looked like a young Drew Barrymore. Both my parents have said people would come up to them all the time and remark on my resemblance to her in that movie Firestarter:

Whatever it is, I would absolutely be pleased if Drew played me in a movie.

Now, if Penelope Garcia was a real person and not a character on a TV show (Criminal Minds), she would undoubtedly play me in a movie:

Irrational Rationing...

The past year of my life has been spent blogging; two of my four classes necessary for graduation required them and at my internship I blogged. Why not give the world my opinion on any subject I choose? It's free and it's mine to share, right? Absolutely!

So, to start, what do I want my tone to be? Tone is a very important factor, you know. It can make or break a piece. People want to identify a tone or purpose, which they often misconstrue as meaning the same thing. Oh, people-my favorite breed:)

So let's see. There's:
Informative? Will I provide people with knowledge about various subjects and try to teach? Eh.

How about super upbeat and positive? Like, I'll provide people with a reason to live to log on to read the next uplifting piece of blog. Eh.

How about super dreary? Dreary works. Most people would rather be perfectly miserable than divinely happy. Eh. Decisions.

Hmm, maybe all my posts will be so contemplative. Hey! That's not a bad racket. Contemplative in…
