Hi there, it’s been a while since we last spoke. My online boutique Hazed has been up and running for a few months, and there has been some highs and lows. One of my biggest struggles would have to be, balancing my full time job and running my business. I’ve always been horrible with time management. Yup I’m that friend that’s always 15 minutes late for everything. So when it comes to balancing my two worlds it’s been a major struggle. During the launch of my store, I was 100% focused on my business. So much so, some nights I would stay up re-arranging my site to make sure that everything was perfect. But for the last few months I’ve let that focus drift to my full time job. Since my full time job funds my everyday life and also my business, it became my main focus and I didn’t realize this until someone a few days ago asked me how my business was going….. I instantly thought to myself, my business; how have I forgotten about my own business?!? I let myself get completely consumed with work and pushed my dream to the side. My life balance was completely off and I was starting to feel like my old tired self again. During my lunch break, instead of doing the daily ritual of scrolling through Instagram, I signed on to amazon (which honestly is my go to for buying mostly everything including the adidas shorts I’m wearing in these pictures) and purchased two journals. One for Hazed and the other for oh yeah kendra (my blog). For the past few days I’ve been getting up by 7:30 am every morning and spending 1 hour on everything Hazed related. From picking out pieces I think will be great for the upcoming fall/winter to planning buying trips to LA. I am also designating an hour to my blog oh yeah kendra, to plan blog content….See balance! This way I can run all aspects of my life more efficiently, because at the end of the day when your life is in balance you’re running at your best. I’m not going to say that this will be the end to this work life balance because we both know that would be a complete lie. It’s definitely something that will always be an obstacle for me. Eventually my goal is to be 100% self employed & that’s why in these early stages of everything it’s important I lay the ground work for a balanced life, so my business can truly be successful.
