It’s coming to the end of June, which means the end of my 6th month working on Golden Apple full time. Six months ago i was finishing off working at the party venue that I had managed over Christmas, ready to start the scary challenge of working for myself full time!
Overall it’s been incredible – I’ve worked on some exciting projects, been featured on some fabulous blogs, received some wonderful feedback and made friends with some amazing people.
I’ve had some fantastic days and weeks full of excitement and smiles, as well as some absolutely awful ones full of mardiness and tantrums when I’ve considered giving up the whole thing and going back to work.
Last week was one of these weeks, and the only thing that stopped me from saying ‘Goodbye’ to Golden Apple was the amazing support that I received from some incredibly lovely people, so thank you to all of you – you know who you are! 🙂

With the first 6 months coming to an end, I sat down earlier today and wrote my ‘Mid years resolutions’ to help me improve over the next 6 months…
♥ Reply to ALL emails the day they come in
♥ Get better at sticking to my ‘To Do’ list
♥ Stop thinking about attending networking events and actually do it!
♥ Blog every day
♥ Don’t go on twitter if I’m having an ‘off’ day
♥ Try and give more realistic time frames for work
♥ Stop getting overly excited about new projects and neglecting existing ones
♥ Keep my desk tidy!
And some personal ones which should also help..
♥ Eat breakfast every day, and cut down on takeaways
♥ Drink more green tea and water and go to the gym more often
♥ Stop getting annoyed so easily and stressing myself out!
♥ Make more time for myself to have fun and relax
And most importantly…
♥ No more talk of quitting!!!
I’ll leave you with Ca Plane Pour Moi by Plastic Bertrand, which roughly translated means ‘This Life’s For me!”
