Lifting the Weight





Tara and I never set out to be entrepreneurs. We never thought we’d work for ourselves, much less each other. We didn’t grow up fantasizing about owning our own business. And when we decided to make the jump we just trusted that we’d build our wings on the way down. Or at least we’d hold hands and crash and burn together – Thelma & Louise style.

Just a few short months after the beginning of Braid we hired Kristin. Truth be told… she got the job because she kind of reminded of us Liz. It could’ve been the short hair and oxfords or it could’ve been the kind of cool calm she managed to maintain through her portfolio review. Now… I can’t imagine Braid without her.

It still sometimes feels as if we’re in a free fall – plummeting towards the earth at a million miles an hour. So when Liz sent us a snapshot of her costume materials the wings seemed all too appropriate.

Visit the Braid blog to see our Halloween costumes – and welcome Liz to our team.

    I loved your costumes! When I saw them on the Braid blog my first thought was, who painted those awesome fish scales on Kristin. Now I see it was Tara. Mad skills!

    On a side note, now that you and Tara are really full steam into your own business, and you’re continuing to blog, and offering awesome eCourses over at Braid, I’d be curious to see a post that kind of details how you stay organized. I know you’ve touched on this before in some of your Freelance Matters posts, but now you girls are really moving and it seems you have a lot more projects going on.

    I’m curious specifically about the mundane things, like since you all work from home, when do you find the time to stay so involved on the blogs and respond to your readers, while still staying on top of client work, and not getting overwhelmed with general household tasks. And how do you deal with project management of client work while simultaneously being wrapped up in blogging, household stuff, etc. I know I would succumb to social not-working. And I know it’s not just you all by yourself either, so having more hands probably helps, but I’m just curious. 🙂

  2. Amazing costumes!! AND a huge Congrats on Liz joining the team!! I had a feeling that would happen eventually, especially after she posted something about quitting her job! p.s. is it weird that I can piece all of this together? I feel like such a creeper lol xo

  3. ah, all of those costumes were so great! you ladies are definitely very inspiring.
