Designing Day to Day
(Picture above AMAM models Nina, Jen and Natalie with me in the middle)
I have been designing and running my company (companies) on a full-time basis for 2 years now and it never ceases to amaze me how busy it gets for me in the fall. It seems like once I hit my birth month (September), I come off of a some what slow summer and then have to run on maximum capacity until May.
It was worse when I was working in the accounting profession and working grueling tax seasons. I would come home exhausted, but had wedding gown orders to fill and sometimes wouldn't sleep or unfortunately get sick.
This season, I am making a vow to keep up my health my priority during my busy season and focus on being productive everyday. I know myself well enough to understand that when I get busy, I put all my time in my work even if it means pulling an all-nighter.
I'm not afraid to announce since I turned 30, things have become clearer to me. My body likes the routine of waking up between 6:30-7:30am every morning (including weekends). Exercising to get my work day going and sewing until bed-time. My dreams will no longer wait for things to happen, I have learned that as long as I have the day I will seize it and do what I have to do to be the rich and famous designer I was meant to be!
