Time continues to baffle me with its speed. Wasn’t it yesterday that I was putting my two weeks notice in at Safeway and packing my suitcase? How can 2 months be gone already?
We’ll blink and it’ll be summer.
My confidence in the customer-facing part of my role continues to grow. I enjoy solving their problems.
One of my recent favorites was helping a grandmother set her granddaughter up and ensuring her that Lessonbee wasn’t only for teachers. I was glad to have the answers she was looking for.
On the project side of things, I’m making decent progress.
Onboarding course: We’ve decided on the type of content (videos) and have two sections fleshed out to a point that I can start building it out with more intention.
Sequences: I’ve been writing email sequences for the different pools of customers, and have the first batch in fair shape. I decided to film face-fronting content for two of the emails and see if that encourages a better response rate for the email portion of onboarding. Side note: HubSpot only allows 5 emails per sequence, just an FYI for anyone planning on building one.
Lessonbee launched our Mental Health Course this week! You can check out the first lesson here if you’re curious.
I also re-learned the importance of adding a meeting agenda to Zoom invites, even if the talking points were addressed via email. When in doubt, always add an agenda!
I have been loving doing my daily mermaid sketches. It’s something simple to create and think about outside of my more career-driven pursuits.
The comfort of reading has also been restored to me amid all this chaos. Right now, I’m invested in Little Women (one of my favorite stories from the screen—Jo and I are kindred spirits if not identical) and am so glad I’ve finally gotten around to experiencing the story in its first form.
I was planning on writing a new journal entry late last night about how forlorn I felt about a personal situation of
She wrote a letter to her future self on March 27th of 2019, and I guess it was for May 15th of 2020 me, because she wrote: “Don’t let the pain cloud the why. It will not always be as it is.”
It was a kind reminder to keep poised in my convictions and reasons for making the choices I’ve made.
This dramatic heart of mine needs some tough love at times. My choices don’t always feel the best right then, but the why is bigger than the ache. Short-term pain for long-term benefit. Sometimes self-care is more than chocolate and Netflix (though I’m down for both, don’t get me wrong).
Also, I’m very fortunate my lamp finally made it from home. I can now film, draw with ease, and not be shroud in shadows during meetings—it’s the little things.
Stay safe, stay sane. Thank you for reading!
