So today I moved into my flat for University and all my flatmates seem absolutely lovely. I am really excited to settle in properly and get to know new people.
I now have an official ‘Sense Of Self’ drawer under my new desk where I can keep all my wristbands, business cards, bank statements and other business paraphernalia together and in one place. Magic.
I will be updating all the Sense Of Self social media pages and keeping a close watch on the website and also any orders in between exploring more of the city and having a wild-but-not-too-wild time!
I’m now also beginning to focus more on the speaking and workshop side of business so if you think your school assembly needs spiced up or equally if you are a teacher and think your class could use a little extra encouragement and motivation then I actively encourage you to PLEASE get in touch via the website- http://www.sense-of-self.co.uk – as there is a special page for any questions or comments. (I’d love to hear from you)
Hope everyone is having a brilliant weekend 🙂
Today I was designing the t-shirts for my Sense Of Self Ambassadors (which are really awesome by the way!!!) and I was thinking about the fact that it is very nearly pre-launch party time which means it is also very nearly launch time too!
I’m pushing to launch Sense Of Self over the summer so that I can give my full attention to making sure everything runs smoothly and then can focus positively on University when I get there. My goal is to have Sense Of Self developing throughout my time as a student so that when I finish University I have a ready-made job and an ever growing business to support myself and avoid the panic of “I have a degree but there aren’t any jobs” and hopefully be able to offer jobs to others and build a Sense Of Self team.
But yeah today I remembered where the initial inspiration for Sense Of Self came from. It was because I always dreamed of being an art student and going to art school but then the closer I found myself towards the stage of my life where I had to make a decision, I realised that art is my hobby. Drawing is fun for me. I like to paint whatever inspiration throws at me. I do not enjoy being restricted and told what to do because creativity is a freedom and a form of expression and I wanted it to always stay that way for me. I want to feel like an art student without having the pressures of being an art student.
Back to business. My dream for Sense Of Self is that it will give others opportunities to find an idea that excites them and run with it. I want to show the world that you can absolutely live the life you always dreamed of. I want to start as an example of this and watch the world take notice.
Before I get carried away though we have the pre-launch party. Getting close, exciting!
Over the past few days I have been racing my way through book after book! A couple I read have really solidified my aspirations in my head and now I have to be brave enough to take action.
I’d like to share some of my goals with you-
1. I aim to have a real, working business up-and-running before my birthday. (Which is at the end of August)
2. I want to see the world.
3. I’d like to start running events and workshops that when people leave, they feel inspired for weeks!
4. Write a book. I don’t know whether it’ll be fiction or non-fiction but I would love to write one.
5. Create a change and leave something to be proud of.
I scare myself sometimes with how ambitious I can be but that’s good.
This is my first few days off in a long time and…I have the cold! Bummer.
Today I am planning the next couple of weeks as I have a few meetings lined up and would love to be ready to accept the advice I will receive and actually get started. I feel I am at that stage where I could begin to start a business so I just have to begin to start. (come on, Rachel!)
I will do this.
