You may have noticed that I disappeared for the last 2 weeks. Well, I’ve been huddled in my office working with one of my clients getting ready to launch a new product. And boy is it hard work.
While I’ve taken parts in launches before and have started and organized a few events myself, doing a national launch with a team of 6 is a lot harder that I had previously thought. I got used to work 16 hour days, and eating once every 8 hours. That’s part of startup culture. What I didn’t notice was how much my body hated me. How out of shape I feel, and how much money I actually I spent on takeout.
I missed this blog, I missed having conversations with friends, I missed talking about money, or knowing what I have in my bank account. Or setting up a budget for that matter. So I did what any normal person would do. I slept till 10 am today, and have been writing posts on this site since then.
Ps. this may just be me, but I noticed that I went on a few late night ” I deserve a treat for working this hard” online shopping trips. That’s not going to bode well for my wallet.
PPS. Happy first day of summer, friends.
Welcome back! We missed you!
At least now the product has launched and you will have a better idea of how much to charge your clients in the future for providing this service.
I recently (last week) started a new job, just in time for a solid end-of-quarter push. I was off Tuesday and Wednesday and won’t have another day off until July. Fortunately for me, my days aren’t 16 hours like yours were. Unfortunately, this push is 4 times a year!
Thanks, Tammy. its good to be back!
Ugh! I know exactly what you mean. Busy times at work can be difficult on the mind, body, and wallet. Welcome back!
I do have some really nice new shoes to show for it though 😉
That sounds busy and overwhelming! Make sure to take care of yourself. Is it all over now?
Sounds like you were sucked into the black hole of “real life” for a bit there, but good to see you back in action!
Thanks, Casey! You know how it goes!
