Take a moment and have a think about your life. Are you happy? Do you love your job? Are you studying your dream subject? Do you wake up every day excited about your life?
Something to think about anyway. I’m in two minds about things. Sometimes I think that I should just keep doing what I’m doing, work hard and slowly build my way up into something fantastic. Other times I want to completely change everything and go on an adventure.
I’d love to be travelling the world talking about what it means to finally have a sense of who you are as a person and how important it is to nurture self-esteem in others. I have pages and pages of notes and ideas that I am insanely passionate about and I’m currently looking for opportunities to share my thoughts with the world.
Imagine being paid to share your ideas and do something that you love. It’s the ultimate goal really. This is what I’m working towards. That first opportunity to earn money from what I love to do.
And tomorrow is December which means goodness how fast this year has flown but also that there will be a new ‘Quote of the Month’ on the website which you absolutely must read!
Guys this is the little presentation I gave at Grill48 in Dunfermline- RACHEL THOMSON TALKS BUSINESS: http://youtu.be/tgqmc6hdva8
I do apologise for not posting for so long, it’s been hectic trying to get back into a routine after the new year, but I seem to have managed…
I have spent this afternoon writing letters because I plan to make 2014 the year I start a business. I have applied for University and think that if I choose to go, it would be easier to run a business than to start one. Just a thought?
This picture was inspired by a book I read about doing business the feminine way, so in the petals on the flower I wrote words to correspond with how I want others to feel when they hear about Sense Of Self and also how I feel when I think about it.
My thought for today is that time is valuable. I have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyoncé so what can I achieve with them? I’m going to be really conscious of that throughout the year and (hopefully) STOP FAFFING ABOUT!
I have a meeting in two weeks and a list of things to have done by then.
Here I go…
Ah it’s been almost a whole year since I became the young entrepreneur of the year. Wow.
This week I have a lot going on. I’m working on a new design inspired by music, and I plan to have it finished tonight ready to be printed tomorrow. I want a new one to showcase on Friday.
What’s Friday, you ask?
Well. Well well well, Friday is when the competition starts again and I’ll be interviewed and guest speakers will speak and of course I have to take every chance to market!
Going to be brilliant. And I think I could be ready (almost) to get everything moving and *gasp* become a business-woman. Hmm.
I’ll post a photo of the t-shirt when it’s all done. Ahhhh.
Well this is my plan for today. The little art book has loads of paintings that I want to read about and I’m going to cross-reference them from the gallery website and find out about the new collections there, because I start my new job THIS THURSDAY. And I always fancied being one of those art boffin types.
I have a few new paintings and a couple of sketches and like, a million ideas so I’m going to work on those this afternoon as well.
Yesterday I spent the day in Edinburgh and I grabbed the chance to speak to one of the street performers. I’ve been fascinated by him ever since I was small. Turns out he has been doing his performances (he has quite a variety) for a long, long time and what I loved was that not only does it still thrill me to watch him but that after all these years, he hasn’t lost one ounce of enthusiasm. I still get the feeling that as he performs he is the happiest he has ever been. We chatted and he was telling me how women are now coming up to him pushing prams and remembering when they were little the impression he made on them. I figured that what he has is exactly what I’m aiming to create with Sense Of Self. Something I’m happy to do every day forever, that makes people think a little bit more and to share a smile.
The bit I liked the most was that as a man, he was everything I imagined he would be- polite, cool, passionate and it felt good to be able to speak to him.
That’s what I’m aiming for.
