What to focus on? Greedy platforms versus the less greedy…

I have done some research and some thinking. I have been very close to another burnout. Working a full-time job and then working on weekends on my side-hassle was a bit too much as I had only a couple of hours of rest. And that was not enough to recover. Something had to change toContinue reading “What to focus on? Greedy platforms versus the less greedy…”

Keeping everything in one spot

I really like the saying: Don’t keep your all eggs in one basket. It is on my mind, especially now when I see so many changes around me and in the POD world. This is something I am more aware of now than a few years ago – and making changes based on it. IContinue reading “Keeping everything in one spot”

My strange strategy paid off

This is going to be very brief. Something surprising happened to me on Pinterest. It might not be applicable to other social media though… My Pinterest was not doing that well and the numbers kept on going doing. I kept on trying different things and kept on watching every Pinterest guru I could find. TheContinue reading “My strange strategy paid off”

Testing social media algo :)

Nothing planned worked and frankly, I got dispirited by it all. I thought to myself that no one is goingContinue reading “Testing social media algo :)”

First step for “one person business”

Yes, it’s great having some extra income but why would I be giving up my free time to do something I don’t even know ifContinue reading “First step for “one person business””

Find your local role…

Just one experience from last week. I feel that local community is more important than ever. I know hat most of us are online for many hours and connecting with the ‘global village’. I have realised that internet always takes me mile away to different continents which is lovely but I do have less andContinue reading “Find your local role…”

Thinking about the next step…

There are lots of prediction how the world will look. It is clear to me that I will have to be more versatile and juggle lots of moving parts. I will have to learn few more things, too. From all of this I gather that the future is going to be about activity, flexibility andContinue reading “Thinking about the next step…”

Mini-blocks and mini-burnouts

This might be useful for someone who works at home with a great intensity. That is what I have been doing during the lockdown and it occurred to me – that instead of having a big creative block or a big burnout, I experience a series of small ones. Not sure why it is, butContinue reading “Mini-blocks and mini-burnouts”
