What I did today
Today was a bit of a mixed bag. That big client I landed for $1,500 of work inside a week? Well, he changed things up a bit on me so I’m going to have to work more than expected. I’ll probably be down on the overall project based on the number of hours needed.
On the other hand, I landed a client from Catalant! This is my first Catalant project and it hopefully will lead to more if I get a good review. Definitely a key priority for me now to make sure I get a good review.
I also finished up an eBook, which I’m now having formatted and will hopefully upload to KDP soon. It’s a short one about habits you should have in the evening and I hope people like it.
You’ll notice though that my earnings for the day are way down. I did a lot of client work today, but I actually didn’t make much today. This isn’t great…still about one month’s worth of safety in the bank
What I made today
Today’s pro-rated amount of monthly expenses
How I’m feeling today
Well, I felt good about the clients I landed until I saw those numbers about and realized that I was negative.
Well, shit. I need more clients and more paying clients!
My plan for tomorrow
So tomorrow is Saturday. I need to do a ton of work for clients and hopefully, start submitting some work so I can get paid. I need income to start coming through the door pretty quickly or I’m going to be in a world of hurt. I can’t stay negative every day and really need to move positively.
But still, it’s all I think about so I might as well write that here too!
