Today has been a day of experiments, discoveries and some forward progress, along with some backwards progress. I have the fortunate pleasure of being in the position to have time to follow my dreams. My Dear Hubby is very understanding and flexible enough to provide me with this opportunity.
For about five years now I have wanted to build my scrapbooking website, but working long days in front a computer meant that I had little left to give at the end of a ten hour day. The past few months were to be my chance to start sinking my teeth into it, but there have been a lot of frustrations along the way. My employer had been continually increasing my hours from the originally agreed two days per week, up to five days per week over the course of the past six months. It has meant little time to work on my projects. In early January, I put my foot down and said no more – back to two days. And nothing happened until this week. Finally a week free to work on my dreams. It is such a relief to feel like I am actually making progress again.
For me, my business will be the basis of my location freedom. I am not afraid of hard work, I would just like to be doing some travel and exploring in between bouts of designing beautiful kits and papers. I am so pleased with the progress I have made so far on putting together the structure of my business. It has all the key elements in assisting me to realise my dreamlines.
- The scrapbooking business is purely an online entity
- I can design from my computer anywhere
- Finished product can be uploaded to the site anywhere I have access to the internet
- Batching of product creation is possible, such as spending a solid two week block creating product and blog posts, then slowly releasing that product to market over the weeks that follow whilst fulfilling Dreamlines
- There is no physical product to ship
I love where I live, but I love exploring other countries. Considering most of my remaining Bucket List entries are DO based rather than HAVE based, then freedom to explore is a key component of the lifestyle design I am working on. I don’t expect everyone to be the same, that is why Dreamlining is such an enlightening experience.
