Time, time, time, see whats become of me
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around, leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter
Just a little shout out to good old Simon and Garfunkel there, but seriously some evenings I sit back and think where did the day go? That is this week’s topic on Flaming Hot….how much time do you spend doing things other than create to run your business?
I seem to spend much more time promoting, blogging, photographing, editing, ordering supplies and listing new beads and jewelry than I do actually making the new beads and jewelry! I would say that for every hour I spend torching I spend at least two doing other bead business related tasks. Some days, I am sure that I spend 3 hours per every hour torching even though I would certainly like the reverse to be true. One day I’ll be more streamlined and less scattered (well I can dream can’t I?), but in reality it takes much more than just making the beads to make the moola and whether we like it or not, to be successful, you have to put in that non-creative time!
