My day starts between 5 and 6 AM every morning.
The first thing I do is check my phone.
“Did I miss any urgent alerts last night?”
‘Do I have any new sales?”
“Are there any support tickets that need to be worked on?”
I get out of bed, and head to my craft.
I sit in front of my computer, to start the day.
I respond to emails, read news articles that are important to my field and start working on projects.
I write down ideas to help stay relevant in the changing market.
I brainstorm, plan, and test concepts.
I have to remind myself to take time out to do things like eat, workout and just look away from the screen.
I meet with people to bounce ideas and network.
I schedule timelines and projects.
I meet with clients and prospective clients.
My day typically doesn’t end until 10:30 – 11 PM, but sometimes as late as 2 – 3am.
There are night where I wake up.
Sometimes it’s a great idea, that I need to jot down, other times it’s “Am I going to make it?”
I can’t let fear or doubt enter my mind.
I’m chasing my dreams, sacrificing sleep while doing it.
It’s a full time job, and then some, but I wouldn’t want it to change.
