Well, where to start. I will start by telling you a little about myself and why I am blogging. Before I start though I just want to let you know that I am not a writer by trade, nor enjoyed it during college. Although I did get A’s in my Technical Writing class, that is a whole different cup of tea. I am not a people person so corresponding with you will be a growing experience itself. Also, pardon me if my thoughts are sometimes jumbled, kinda goes along with the mental illness. I will get to that in a minute.
A little about me, I am in my late 40’s, single and prefer it that way. I have 3 grown children and 3 grandchildren. I live with two and they are a handful but I love them to pieces. I have a B.S. in Business Information System. It was pretty much a jack of all trade degree in Information Technology. So nope, not an expert at all and it has been so long ago that I don’t remember much that I learned. That leads me to the mental aspect of my blog and why I am blogging.
I have Bipolar I, anxiety just to name a few, yes, there are a few more. I do know that the bipolar and anxiety affect what I do or think though. I figure it is hard enough to run a business being stable but even more so being sycotic. 🙂 There are times when I have no motivation to do anything but business won’t grow itself. There has to be more people out there with mental illness that run or want to start a business and we should stick together. I am hoping you will learn and grow with me.
My business is geared towards encouragement, motivation, and inspiration in running an online business. Posts that will take me out of zombie mode and into worker bee mode. The posts just might help you too, knowing that you are not alone. My second part of my business is running an Etsy store. Designing digital graphic art, printables, journal cards for Project Life and other fine products through Zazzle and/or Cafepress. I haven’t decided which storefront I will use yet but I can only focus on one or two things at a time.
I am hoping this blog will be useful to those with and without mental illness. You will find out in my posts how my illness affects my productivity but even those without will find they have unmotivated and depressed days too.
Tomorrow I am planning to work on my graphic designs for my digital art and maybe work on a planner page for weight loss. That is my goal anyway. Oh, I also work a full-time job but I am not sure how much longer that is going to last. I work in a data processing/call center and I will have to go on the phones soon. Already my anxiety is through the roof. Just not sure if I am going to be able to do it or not.
I do believe that is enough for now. Hopefully, you will stick around and see how this business running thing works out for me and maybe we both might learn something new. Lol, You know nothing, John Snow. Sorry had to throw in that Game of Thrones reference. Until next time…
