June to August Goals + Finally Getting Ahead, Banishing Chaos, and New Businesses

It's been a crazy-busy past few months with the requisite ups-and-downs. One day shit really hit the fan and nearly everything that could have gone wrong went down. I had a cry, let off some steam, and gave myself a couple of days to ignore gym/work pressures so I could get my home and life chaos under control. I went back to planning every single action step for my goals, deep organized my apartment, donated a bunch of items, and implemented some more feng shui. It was a massive help! With life feeling better-planned and clear, I know I'll accomplish the list below for August. I'm grateful for the day of pain, it made me shift priorities, push through, and work harder!

August Goals

1. Get The New Websites Up (Two advertising new services, one for the soap biz) By 8/8/15! Aaah! 

2. Get The New Business Cards in my hand by 8/8/15!

New Services Coming: I made business planning, branding, product design, web design and product photography packages that I'll share soon! I even have a couple of home/business organization clients lined up and want to make that an available service, too. In the near future I'll also take clients for nutrition and herbalism but for now, I can fulfill custom orders for any skin issues. Send me an e-mail if you're interested in hitting me up for any services. It may sound confusing now, but it will all be spelled out clearly soon! These have been very busy but exciting times, big changes are coming and things keep improving!
