What do you do all day?
On some days I put the saltshaker in the refrigerator, spray pledge on my hair and pour water in my cereal. I wish this was the newest diet craze you haven’t yet heard of. But, it’s not. I’ll admit I have days where I don’t quite have a handle on things. Then I have those days where I’m a boss. The problem? It feels like there’s more days where I don’t have a handle on things.
“What do you do all day?” they ask.
That’s a great question. Each day is different. Each week. Each month. Nothing is “the norm”. However, since you may or may not be interested, here is a rundown of my week so far.
Monday: I drove one hour to a consulting position. Worked there 8 hours. Drove one hour back. Napped for exactly 23 minutes. Taught a Zumba class for one hour. Took the world’s fastest shower. Implemented a one-hour video conference session with a private client. Tried to keep my eyes open and prepare for the next day.
Tuesday: Ran outside (for exercise, not because I was running from someone). I then took a semi-fast shower & got ready to read to the second grade classes of an elementary school. Drove thirty minutes. Read to 6 classes. Volunteered for one hour because it was fun & my best friend is the teacher. Drove thirty minutes back. Finished a meal plan for a client & answered emails. Had a one-hour conference call on FaceTime about blogging. Taught at the gym. Had a one-hour video conference with a private client. Prepared for the next day.
Wednesday: See Monday. It’s the same except a grocery store tour instead on a videoconference.
Thursday: 8am interview with a company I stumbled across on Indeed. Some people Netflix before bed. I Indeed. At 10am I was back at the elementary school. 12pm I ate lunch alone but I’m not complaining. At 1pm I had an interest meeting at a nearby clinic. I then made it to the post office. At 3pm I had a conference call for the agency through which I do nursing home audits. Finally it was time for a 31 minute nap. Taught Zumba. Went to the bank. Two different banks actually. Packed for a Zumba-sponsored trip to New Jersey.
Friday: Drove one hour. Worked 6 hours at the consulting job. Drove to one hour to the airport. Flew to Detroit, then Philly. Tried to stay awake amongst old friends.
Why am I telling you this?
I don’t know exactly. But maybe it’s to show someone it’s possible to have guaranteed money with consulting, yet still be able to show up and show out in your community. Although it’s not pretty (yet) I’m molding this career into exactly what I want it to be. And you can too!
