Over the last week, something amazing happened. Because of this amazing thing, I went to a hot yoga class (not once, but twice) after not working out in over a year. I also got my hair cut, which I also haven’t done in over a year.
I know I have long hair, but that’s still a stinking long time to go without a haircut. It’s not that I didn’t want to work out or take care of myself, I just haven’t been able to find the time to do so in a very long time.
In fact, I feel as though I’ve been able to BREATHE for the first time in a very, very long time. Did I have fewer clients over the last week? Heck, no. I did three online design consultations yesterday alone, but I was still able to make it to a yoga class last night.
Wanna know my secret? I hired the most amazing assistant who is sorting my email for me and handling all my scheduling. Because that was taking me a ridiculous amount of time – time out of every day of the week, including the weekend. Sometimes three hours a day to just return emails and schedule clients.
After helping me establish a better system of organizing my client information and actually getting my schedule on the computer (rather than the old-school planner that never left my hot little hands), this amazing woman has relieved me of a burden that kept me from doing the little things I wanted to do, like taking care of myself and even enjoying a good, deep breath!
Her name is Allison. She is a BLESSING, and I am very thankful. You’ll love her, and she will be happy to schedule your next color, design, or staging consultation if you message her at [email protected] But I just might be doing yoga when you send that email.
