Every day, everyday, you are the habits of what you do ever day. It is what sings through my head as I go through my day, everyday. It is tough to stay focused on your side hustle, when there are so many distractions that turn my head at any given time. “shiny things, shiny things” …its like a bird being distracted by things that glimmer in the sun. Summer in YEG is just one big long distraction, despite the rain. It is truly when the city comes alive and the sun who rises and falls so early and late reminds us of what we have been waiting for all winter long. Add to this a little vintage hunting for night market, vacation, friends and well I have not been practicing my mantra of “everyday, everyday”.
It is 8 weeks until the next night market… which means I have no choice but to focus. Being boss lady sounds “all that…” at least the title is cool, although I do like Head Mermaid so much more, but lets be real. If I do not do the work, nothing will happen. Creating great events out of the ether is not a simple task, especially when you are bootstrapping it. The marketing machine does not happen on its own and the skill set it takes to do this well is far from easy. I bow to all you social media mavens out there… tough work in a landscape that changes moment to moment.
For every boss lady out there remember you are crushing it, every day one step at a time. Hold your head up, do the superman pose, smile at your fellow boss ladies because we should all be in this together, holding each other up instead of pushing each other down.
Be bold, write your own adventures, your life right now, at this moment is the result of what you do most, what you are doing every day…. good or bad its all down to you.
