Hi folks! I am back to work, after a well deserved 2 weeks off playing in the sun in Northern California. The break has given me space to process my goals and just relax. It actually takes real guts and faith to take time off when working freelance. Gut to say "no" to clients and faith to know it is gonna be ok when you return. Working 50 weeks a year is the norm in the USA and i have heard it said that "American live to work, while Europeans work to live". I encourage you to create the life you want and don't forget to play.Note to self - I need to remember my Euro roots! My favorite play time is on the water and that is why my picks today have that theme. Stand up paddle boards SUP. I just ordered one and can't wait to get out on Lake Washington.
