Six months into my journey as a home-based business owner, here’s what a day in my life (specifically, Wednesday October 29) looks like:
7:45am Roll out of bed to go for a run.
8:30am Return home from running and get cleaned up.
9:15am Settle down at the computer with a cup of tea and a bowl of grapefruit. I started the day my usual way, with 8+ tabs going on the Internet as I checked emails and social media accounts (personal and for clients) and responded to inquiries.
10:20am Make a loaf of banana bread.
10:45am Edit sections of an educational book for a client.
12:15pm Take break to read a book and have a snack.
12:50pm Deal with correspondence.
1:10pm Have meeting with the bank with regards to dissolving a non-profit I’ve been volunteering for.
2pm Arrive back home and work on social media.
2:30pm Write a blog post.
3pm Do business admin work.
3:20pm Dinner time! (Yes, dinner is freakishly early in my household.)
3:45pm Continue editing the educational book.
4:45pm Spend 15 minutes goofing off around the Internet, then putter around the house and tidy up.
5:30pm Walk to my evening transcribing class and transcribe a three-hour university lecture.
8:45pm Walk home after class.
9pm Proofread an urgent press release for a client and deal with some business correspondence.
9:45pm Watch some Netflix with Mr Science.
11pm Bed time.
