Luck or Fate…

February 8th will go down as “one for the books”.  To say that I am over the moon about that day is an understatement.  No I didnt get engaged, married, or have my first child.  😉 However, just as equally amazing things happened on that day.

1) I was informed that I made it to the final round for a commercial.  Product: 3M Command Hooks.  I have one last test to pass and plan to blow it out of the water — I really REALLY want to appear in the commercial.

2) My guest post “aired” on the Money Saving Mom‘s website.  Crystal is a well respected and well known blogger, and the fact that I landed the guest post opportunity was huge!  The site has received 1,500 2,500+ views since the article was posted! {To give you an idea of how awesome this is — my previous record for daily views sat at 65} 🙂 The feedback from the post has been amazing — it keeps me motivated and driven.  Organizing is where I belong.

….before I go to #3….

I want to add that my luck is not that good.  I have never won large sums of prizes or contests or … anything really.  The fact that these two {huge} things happened in my life…on the same day….that aint luck…that’s fate! 😉

3) Carolina played Duke….at Carolina.  🙂 Two great universities and two great basketball teams!  Raymond and I dress out in all Carolina gear and throw down like 20 year old college kids again.  Gooooo Carolina! 🙂

Thank you so much for your support and kind words!

Welcome to all my “newbies”. 🙂

What a Week…

It has been an interesting week for me!  I often compare running a business to riding a rollercoaster.  It is no different — exciting, scary, ups and downs, twists and turns.  It can make you feel like your stomach is in your throat, all the while, you are so excited to take the ride.  Anyone else feel like that?  I hope so!

Coming back from 2 full days off was rough.  I rarely take full days off, you know the kind where you dont check email, Facebook, blog posts to see what action might be taking place.  Here is a recap:

  • Signed the contract to redesign my logo {aka everything about my brand} and to create my website.  {HUGE step and accomplishment for me — I have been putting this off for over a year} … *gulp* it is a pricey investment
  • Spent several hours — actually days — writing articles on organizing.  As of now, my articles are featured monthly in Lake Norman Woman magazine and Sophie Womans magazine. Im working to gain more exposure with other magazines {regionally}.  Fingers crossed!
  • Found out I will have a guest spot on Money Saving Moms website in February.  {national exposure — yippee!}
  • Met with an exceptional interior designer, Vickie Hafer, of Carolina Interior Works.  Im looking forward to working with her in the future.
  • Scheduled a photo shoot for tomorrow — Im in need of better pictures.  {Thank you MRM Photography — cannot wait to see what we come up with}
  • Working on creative video ideas for my fans and friends!  {FAVOR: Please email me any organizing challenges that you have}  I would like to showcase them in an article and video.  I can use First Name, Last Initial to keep things relatively private.

Whew!  It doesn’t seem like a lot when I look back on the week — but then again it has only been 3 days!

Tell me about your week!  T.G.I.F 🙂
