Newsletter 22nd January 2022: You’re fired (me too!) ūü§£ new bonus & something different

by | Newsletters


Would you get fired from your business if you had a boss?

I probably would. I don’t think I’m employable anymore. ūü§£

My brain is all over the place and the work gets done but usually last minute.

I take time off during normal working hours to pat the dog or take him for a walk, to go to the hairdresser or to the store. Lots of things.

I go to work in my pjs and I do a lot of chatting on zooms.

No discipline at all. At least, not much on the surface. Although I’m at my PC for long hours.

So I’m mighty glad that¬†I don’t have a boss.

But somehow, despite all the faffing about, I did take enough action this year to find a business model that worked.

And I do well enough that I can say, without question, that I’ll never have a boss again.

That’s just as well¬†because that dog is not going to walk himself ūüėä

As for you, what kind of employee are you in your own business?

Would you give yourself a job?

If not, is it because you don’t act like a model employee on the surface (like me) or is it because you are not taking enough of the kind of action that will¬†create and grow a successful business?

Important distinction ūüėä

I love it when when Marian brings out a new product because she always has something a little different to offer and her latest course called MELLO is no exception. This one is a new kind of digital planner based on Trello. I use Trello boards for so much already that I had to snap this one up especially when I saw how well these sell on places like Etsy.

And even better, the competition is light Рonly around 500 examples there. Marian demonstrates a wedding planner like this. Her system is perfect for an event planner but there are many examples of different uses.

On Etsy I found this. Wow!
