What I did today
So, I’m exhausted. Actually, beyond exhausted.
But, I still have a bunch more work to do. Honestly, I think it’s a good thing! One of my best performing Medium posts is about why you should trade sleep for productivity. Today, I’m definitely putting my money where my mouth is and sacrificing sleep for productivity.
Tonight, I have a lot of powerpoint left to do. I’m going to build a couple slide decks. I’m going to do it the “cheating” way though. I have a guy that I hire through Fiverr who is a total rockstar. I’ll shell out the content that I have on slides, then have him design them up.
I’m focusing my time on generating value and content in the world. I have some big goals for my first affiliate site and I want to write more for it.
So, in terms of side activity, today I:
- Wrote a few pieces for an UpWork client
- Accepted a high paying gig on UpWork, but the client hasn’t messaged me back
- Did a call and a slide for my Catalant client
- Published one affiliate piece that I paid for someone else to write
To do still is:
- Write my one affiliate piece
- Shell out the deck for my client
Man, it’s a busy day!
What I made today
Interview Coaching: $0
Affiliate site #1: $0
Today’s pro-rated amount of monthly expenses
My plan for tomorrow
Tomorrow will involve a fair amount of Excel for my Catalant client. I’ll need to build that out to a good place so I can keep things moving along there.
I also really should find my next client. I think seasonality is going to be tough in the freelance consulting world!
