Well I’ve been back in Portland for about 12 hours, and for as much fun as I had in Alberta – it’s really time to get back down to work.
I have a stack of emails in my inbox, a dozen posts that need to be written, and lest we not forget, I’m only halfway through my daily writing challenge for September.
While I’ve still been able to get a post up every day this week, the one big area where I’ve failed is promoting it. Hardly any social, no emails, I’ve just been hitting publish each morning, and then moving along to the golf course – or in the case of this trip, the inside of our hotel (we got snowed out the second half of the trip).

As my businesses have grown to the point where they both should be full time jobs, I’ve found myself feeling overwhelmed with the lack of systems I’ve built to accommodate for this. We’re starting to think a bit differently and this post gives some insight into why, and how.
I’ve been daily blogging for two weeks now. The first week was easy, the second week was pre-mediated, and the third week I have a feeling is going to be a challenge as I dig back in after being out of town.
