BRAIDCREATIVE:SEPT2013W_23

I think one of the myths of the creative entrepreneur is that we never get weekends off. Sure, I’ve had to pull a few long hours here and there for a tight client deadline, or I am so excited about a project (like redesigning our Braid website) that I just can’t help myself from working a couple hours on a Sunday afternoon. But for the most part when I’m off, I’m off. Weekends are sacred. No emails, no writing, no designing. This weekend was no exception – and it was glorious.

But with that, Monday definitely still feels like Monday. So here we are. The very beginning of the week starts with a cup of tea and a look at the schedule for the week. To-dos are determined, meetings are prepped, and days are planned. And that’s pretty glorious too.

What’s your relationship with Monday like?

Last week I was profiled on Design Sponge’s Biz Ladies series. Over there I share the journey of going from day job, to freelance, to business owner with my sister. Read more here.

I also wrote a post on The Braid Blog about going from doing to teaching – a very cool trend of people helping people that I’ve noticed other creatives really starting to embrace as a business model. You can read that post here.

Finally, our last Braid ECourse for Creative Entrepreneurs for the year will be Dream Customer Catching: Embrace Your Expertise and Attract What You Track. This ECourse is awesome for creatives who feel scattered when it comes to what they do and for who. It will be in-session from Dec. 13-22. As always, & Kathleen readers are invited to take our Braid ECourses for $50 when you register using the discount code ANDKATHLEEN50. Learn more here.
