One Week In Five Minutes – Shopping, Recording, Cleaning & Yardwork {VIDEO}

There’s no one formula to being a creative freelancer.

Knowing what tempo works well for your tasks and quality of life in the present season you’re in helps include wellness into the design of your business. Burnout is not fun, and it can sap energy and stifle creativity; that’s enough incentive to find the best way of tending to your joy while taking care of business.

There’s a lot of hard work involved whether you’re an entrepreneur or proactive employee but we can also apply smart solutions to manage the pace of everything on our to-do list…so that we remember our to-BE quest.

Onto today’s video: One Week In 5 Minutes. You’ll see:

  • Shopping (for art-supplies at Laurie Dash)
  • Recording (a voice-over)
  • A passing Tropical Wave
  • Cleaning (with my jack russell)
  • Yardwork 


Whatever the design of your day, remember you are more than a career and your life has a purpose that goes way beyond your tending list.

by the way: works well to send big files. Just upload the folder, enter the e-mail address you’re sending it to + yours, and upload. You’ll get a confirmation link when the files are loaded and sent, and then another one in your inbox when they open and access the files.

How are you with house-or-yard work? One of the most popular posts on this blog shares about when I went from being busy on the road to working quietly from home. The title might sound poetic but adapting was a huge challenge for a while, but I’m thankful for the journey that came with a lot of life lessons.

Who would’ve thought cleaning and laundry days could be fun or at the very least, relaxing? These are things that need to be done, regardless – whether it’s us who does them or not. Which of the activities on the list coming up do you prefer? Click the box to select your answer.
