As a creative entrepreneur, I work almost 24/7. There is always something to be done, and it feels like I'm the only one who is able to do it. (Ugghhh) This is especially relevant this time of year as I'm amping up for holiday events and a big move into a new space.
When I take time off, I never really take time off. I'm always thinking of ways to utilize my free moments to support my business- be it time to come up with ideas, discuss plans, or create content for my social media channels. My "off" days are where my best ideas come from and I'm trying to work them in as much as possible.
So last weekend, I went to the beach with my family. We took some photos of our new banana products and I jumped in the ocean with my dog. Was it time off? It felt like it. Was I working? Sure.
As a 30 (almost 31!) year old woman, I've come to know myself as a person who can't stop moving. I work all day on Jenny Lemons things- be it boss stuff like re-filing my fictitious business name paperwork or artsy stuff like hand painting tops. I embroider things in front of the TV at night. I work a lot but I love it and that's okay.
