I didn’t know this is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Day. This kid is a rainbow baby and I’ve spent most of the past 6 months in disbelief, getting sick, then believing but also not being so sure how things will go on the other side.
My oldest kid made a cameo during Q&A and we were all presenting during the late afternoon / evening routines from different timezones, there were some great takeaways and different points that apply to both parenthood and entrepreneurship.
Pitching with a newborn -> then toddlers -> remote school age kids, has become a skill over time. I’ve been asked to speak at a couple of upcoming events this Fall and have done a roundup of the confirmed dates so far.
Some of you may remember I started podcasting last August, interviewing other entrepreneurs who also happen to be parents from my home studio, in between looking after our kids on weekdays during the start of the pandemic.
Thanks to this pandemic for showing me I’d much rather label school supplies in between attending virtual Startup Canada gov consultations, recording podcast interviews and doing freelance work.
These are the basic things I try to incorporate into my everyday, in order to make flexible work more efficient (and enjoyable!)
I made this in late 2020 and slowly most of it is coming true…manifesting/making it real never ceases to amaze me but the regular reminders and visuals really help.
Besides sleeping, reading fiction, growing a human that is determined to slow me down and supporting small businesses, this is what I’ve been up to lately.
My rainy work day involved a craft supply run, grocery shop, pottery business meeting, entrepreneur caucus virtual roundtable with cross party representatives, bit of activism and scheduling various family member medical appointments.
