Whoa, hello there friends! It’s been a hot minute since I’ve written a post on here! Thanks for being patient with me while I worked out the logistics of balancing my life. I’m now back at school and although my workload is heavy I do actually have more free time to spend on writing stellar content, so that’s what I’m here to do!

As I said, this year I decided to go back to school for entrepreneurship at one of the colleges in Toronto.

HI! It’s Erin.

I’m super fired up today. Get ready for some major realness / epiphanies / stuff that will maaaybe change your life.

Okay, so the past few months have been massively transformational for me. Not easy, holy shit not easy at ALL. It wasn’t what I expected, but I’ll talk about that specific part in the future. What I really want to talk to you guys about is this realization that I’ve recently had that I think has been the biggest block in my happiness in every single area of my life.

Happy 4th of July! Hope you are all going to take some time today to hang out with friends and drink a well deserved spritz (just maybe sans flag print apparel and plz keep your pups inside – psa over). Okay, so I’ve been off the radar for a little while. A long while. I missed you guys! I didn’t mean to disappear for such a long time, but the last few months were a big learning experience and I’m excited to share everything with you.

I guys, it’s Laura.

Listen – I had a catastrophic accounting mistake that happened early on in my freelance career by assuming that any CPA could manage my taxes. What happened was the CPA who was more experienced with brick and mortar businesses, made mistakes that it took me years and hundreds of dollars to fix with the help of another CPA. That was essentially money and time thrown down the toilet and I was very bitter about it for a long time.

If you are like any entrepreneur  (or maybe I’m specifically speaking for myself, that I’m sometimes way too disorganized) then you could potentially benefit from an online business manager.

Once you reach a point in your business where you have solid profits and are growing your revenue, it is important to consider what you can take off your plate. Initially, you may begin to outsource things to a virtual assistant or someone who handles particular tasks for you such as graphic design or social media.

Starting your own business comes with all kinds of ups and downs, but things can get much more emotional when you have to involve your family members. Whether you are starting a side hustle or planning to launch out of a traditional career into a more non-traditional one as a blogger or other online business owner, your family members may not understand what you are doing. 

Out of concern, they may deflate your excited bubble over launching your own business.

Discovering that you cannot do #allthethings in your business is an important milestone. First of all, it’s okay to accept that you can’t do it all (sorry to tell you, but we’re all human!)

Why Outsourcing?

 

If you don’t realize that you need to outsource, you’re headed straight for my least favorite roadtrip down Burnout Boulevard. You’ll start missing deadlines, feeling frazzled, and making mistakes.

Do you ever have one of those moments where it feels like work is your whole life? As in: you haven’t attended any non blog related social events in months, you talk to more people on Instagram and in blog comment sections than you do in real life, and you have to tear the phone out of your own hands so you stop building your Pinterest boards at 1am? Today, while hanging out in my favorite blog &

If you’re ready to give up, that means you’ve already taken a very important step – you’ve made the leap, taken a risk, done something big! To feel like giving up means you have to have started something already, which is HUGE. It’s also the most important thing to remember when you get to a point that makes you feel like throwing in the towel; at some point in time you wanted to do this,

There are more opportunities today to create success in unconventional, out of the box ways than there ever used to be. You can build your own brand, create a business based on what you have to say, start your own store, publish books….and you can do it on your own terms. You can work from home in your pajamas, or a beach in France. You can build an empire with nothing else but big ideas,
