When I started our Fleuriste blog I fully intended it to be not only about our actual business, but about life as an entrepreneur. I hoped to write posts about time management, Etsy shop management, work/home/life balance and more. How many of those posts have I actually done? Exactly ZERO.
I think over the last four years its just been really hard to maintain a really good work/life balance. There’s been a lot of concentration on getting orders out as quickly as possible to you guys, whether that meant we worked all week and all weekend, or late into the night, or on holidays…..
This year I decided to cut our shipping days to Monday through Friday. I think that’s pretty reasonable for almost any business. I’m still working many weekends but trying to regain control of some personal life haha. This weekend we went on our FIRST hiking trip of the whole summer. I thought you guys might like to see what we do for fun on the (rare) occasion we’re not working. The handsome gentleman (and two furry creatures) in these photos are my inspiration and the whole reason for working so hard.
