My Workspace

I always love seeing writer’s workspaces. You see those old photographs of the master’s workspaces like Rhod Dahl, Steven King, and Mark Twain.

When I lived in Australia and when I lived at home I did posts with pictures of my workspace/office.

Today, I want to share with you my home office and work area with you. This is the first time I’ve been an entrepreneur and so I’d like to share my work space with you so you can have a peek into my life on the other side of the screen.

This work place is still a work in process, but I’m very excited about it. Johan and I have lived in this new townhouse for about two months, so we haven’t been here long.

My work space is in a loft. How exciting that our home has a loft. I love it.

Welcome To My Workspace!

I love books. That might be easy to see. As well as my office cat! His name is Loki! 😛

When I was little I loved watching “The Beauty & the Beast.” I was enamored by the beast’s library. Someday I’d really love to have a wall of books since I probably can’t have his exact library. I am happy about what I currently have.

Besides all the books, this is also the print zone and where I keep a lot of my art supplies.

Now For The Writer’s Desk

A writer’s desk is quite important. This is the desk I’ve had since middle school. A lot of big thinking has been done there.

“Mad Hatter: “Why is a raven like a writing-desk?”
“Have you guessed the riddle yet?” the Hatter said, turning to Alice again.
“No, I give it up,” Alice replied: “What’s the answer?”
“I haven’t the slightest idea,” said the Hatter” – Lewis Carroll, Alice In Wonderland

This is my sitting writing desk. I’m currently looking at getting a standing desk as well, but I haven’t gotten that yet. When I have a standing desk, that’ll go into the guest room, which is actually where I have all my Mary Kay business stuff.

Isn’t this artwork amazing?

I’m really looking forward to reading in this chair in our guest room. It looks quit inviting doesn’t it?

I love my place.

I absolutely love the fact that this is my best working space. It’s not sitting 24/7.

How To Stand Against The Status Quo

Johan and I recently took a big step.

Entrepreneurship is filled with dreams, possibilities, and risks.

Throughout my life, I’ve never wanted to live cooped up in an office. I’ve always wanted to be out and about. On an adventure, to make an amazing life for myself and others. So in this post, I want to share how to go against the status quo and how when you do, people won’t understand your reasoning. Stand strong and chase your dreams. Mine was freedom.

How To Stand Against The Status Quo

I recently chatted with a traveling freelancer and she said that many times people will ask her “where are you traveling now?” or “When are you getting a real job.” Things like that really sting.

[Tweet “Don’t you just love being asked, “When are you getting a real job?””]

I guess I’ve always been against the status quo, because what’s so amazing about following some trail that a million others have walked in front of you? Yeah, sure it will bring you to a safe destination. I’d rather get off the well-tread paths and bushwhack.

You see so much more anyways. It makes me think of a time that I went GeoCaching in Glacier Montana with my dad and brother. We left the trail and followed the coordinates. Yes, at some points we felt like we were lost, at other points we saw amazing views we’d never have seen if we hadn’t left the trail in the first place.

A Little About Me & My Mary Kay Business:

Last night was my Business Debut Party! 🎉 We had a lovely turn out! I absolutely love the fellowship that Mary Kay creates. My director, Deb, awarded me with my Perfect Start Charm (for giving 15 facials to 15 women), my Power Start Charm (for giving facials to 30 women in 30 days), and my Pearls of Sharing Pearl earrings for sharing the opportunity with 3 lovely women. What other business rewards you like this for a job well done? Now I’m working toward my pearl bracelet and necklace! I want to give a warm thank you to all the ladies who were able to show up to help me celebrate. Also want to thank my mom for all the help setting up with delicious desserts and punch! ❤️ you @aberglundart! And also, thank you @intentional14 for the charms and earrings! I absolutely love them!!

I never thought I’d be selling Mary Kay. Honestly, I never thought I would. I kinda looked down on the whole direct sales thing, which I had no clue. But that’s where I came from. I knew I would work for myself somehow, someday. And I wanted that to be sooner than someday. BECAUSE REALLY, we only have one life, am I right? Continue reading “Mary Kay Fast Fun Facts”
