Time slips by so fast!! What are you doing to meet your goals?

How are we already here, September?! I’m sure I was just writing about what I wanted to achieve this year, and we’re already into the second half of 2014. Oh my.

Well, from a different perspective, I have been working towards some of the goals – one of them being financial stability!! The debts of my 20’s are cleared, and now I can start working on establishing grown up financial goals! This business is so far from financially viable – one of my major ongoing goals, but I am becoming clearer about how to MAKE it financially viable! There is so much knowledge on the internet, and so many people willing to share it with you – without charging you for it!

Tonight I am going to trial a few ideas from business building websites – and I will link to the ones I see results from.

Stay tuned!

Oh! And look at that! My first blog post!

Stitches and such

I am toying with the idea about incorporating elements of my journey to healthy living in blog form…. I think there’s so much going on in my life at the moment that my own health is taking a hit. Food has been my companion for so long… it’s just easy to go back to when things are out of control…. So I called this post Procrasta-eating because…. well I was mindlessly eating food without acknowledging that I was well beyond full because I was ummming and ahhhhing about where to go with various things, including this blog!

But.

What I can control right now is using my hands in typing so that I can’t just occupy them with food.

So! I shall tell you about the latest creative enterprise we are undertaking this weekend – a Pop Up Shop!!
