It has been crazy while building my freelance business business, I was stressed out and overwhelmed wondering where I was going to find new clients and how I was going to keep my bills paid all at the same time.
As I spoke about before I quit a full time job in early February to pursue freelancing full time. I seriously thought it was going to be way easier than it actually is. I didn’t realize how much I had on the table and what all still needed to be done. I still needed to find clients (I had two when I left my full time job), needed to build my website, learn all I could about copy then set that into action, and write all the articles requested by the two clients I had. Yup, I was overwhelmed.
In order to cut down the panic attacks, stress, and migraines I decided a part time job would help, then I’d stress less knowing my bills would at least be paid and I could still work on growing my business.
I have social anxiety so it’s hard for me to come out of my shell, but when I’m comfortable it is easier to handle everything. I perused the internet [Facebook Jobs] and found what I thought to be a fun place to seek employment. Cue Suite Paws, it’s a Pet Resort and spa. I sat down in my interview and knew I was going to fit in, everyone was so nice and I even got to take out a few dogs. To my surprise I was hired on the spot to learn reception then cross train in the kennel.
I can’t think of a better way to spend a few days playing with dogs. The place is huge, with 2 big dog day care rooms, 2 small dog daycare rooms, a pool, walking areas, & a few areas to run and play. The kennel is used for the daycare pups but also pups that are being boarded. There’s a selection of villas and pet suits that fits for every size and all breeds. While the owners are away on business or play they can watch their dogs via webcam and the villas have DVD players or said pup can watch a nature channel.
When their owners drop them off they’ve filled out a sheet to indicate if their pup wants cuddle time, dietary needs, & if they’d prefer their pup get an “exit” bath before being picked up.
I myself can not think of another way I’d like to spend the days. I’m hoping to lose some weight; which I don’t think I’ll have a problem with because I’ve already hit over 11 miles worth of steps in the 2 days I’ve worked this week.
I’ve found out I can’t eat whatever I want with this wretched gluten allergy because activated charcoal pills should only be used now and then. So eating better will definitely be in the works as well.
I do have new content coming up next week that I believe you all will enjoy though.
Happy Friday, what are your plans for the weekend??
