Welcome to the second episode of What I’m Working On*! The first episode received some pretty exciting feedback and I can’t begin to tell you how excited I am for future episodes to come. But today I’ve got something extra special for you. Joining me is my dear friend and colleague, Angelica from Gardening in High Heels. In our fun video below, we discuss what she’s working on professionally and personally; you won’t want to miss her book suggestions and I am certain you’ll be blown away by her work ethic and desire to become a connector.
Before you watch our
ridiculous bloopers very serious interview, I thought I’d give you an update on my goals and projects that I mentioned in episode 01.
Work has been interesting recently to say the least. We’re really stepping up our game in talking with our customers more frequently and things have been a bit stressful. No update on writing for the company blog, yet, but perhaps that will happen down the road. I’ve really been contemplating what’s next for me and feel like I’m lost in transition.
On the Blog
I’ve made progress on the ebook I mentioned! I should ideally be wrapping it up soon, but it’s taken me a bit longer than expected. I’m currently in a bit of a doubting stage, but I need to remind myself that it can and will be useful to SOMEONE (hopefully lots of people!) and that I need to get over my insecurities. I think we all fall into the comparison trap and worry that the market is already overly saturated with content, but I really need to practice what I preach. There’s room for EVERYONE at this table.
Additionally, I did take ByRegina.com’s #EpicAtHome workshop! Because of the ebook, however, my challenge has been pushed to the back burner. I do have ideas and am looking forward to making them realities down the road! Ideally, this will be a thing in the next two months.
Things have been kind of all over the place for me recently, full of both good and frustrating things. I did incorporate a bit more working out in–going dancing and for a run recently. I have also made a conscious effort to shut off electronics and read more often before bed and I’m finally making some progress on Get Big Things Done! I have not, however, gone through my apartment stuff because it seems the universe doesn’t want me to move yet. Again. Le sigh. Alas, apparently the real message to be learned is one of patience and letting go.

I’m so proud of him and have really enjoyed listening to his engaging voice! I love seeing creativity emerge in all different forms.

Everything she does is done with such attention to detail and care! Be sure to stop by (but be aware–you won’t ever leave! It’s THAT good.) and check out for yourself!
