Brain-Melting Blogtacular!

Blogtacular 2018 Kat Molesworth Hello

Wow!  My first Blogtacular!  What an absolutely amazing experience.  This was my first ever business conference and what a conference it was.

Handmade Haven at Blogtacular 2018

There was the opening Keynote speech by Tiffany Han then three workshops (I chose SEO, Pinterest then Instagram Stories) and then the closing keynote by Anthony Burrill.  By the end I felt completely exhausted but inspired.  The room was full of awesome business women – and a couple of men – who were all there to learn from and support each other.

 

 

When I got back to the hotel I felt overwhelmed so I  went for a walk round London for a couple of hours, then slept the whole night!  My brain has been whirring since…I’ve got loads of notes, loads more to add to my to-do list, loads of new things to learn, but I’m so looking forward to working through them.  Tuesday was the first day I felt normal again (sorry to anyone who saw me on the Monday on the plummet down!)

Indie Rollercoaster

Indie Rollercoaster Make it Happen

I cannot begin to describe what the Indie Rollercoaster group has done for me over the past few weeks.  Let me back-track slightly – at the beginning of the year I had a part time job along side trying to run my own business.  This job was low paid, very stressful and had very unpredictable working hours.  Not good when trying to run your own business too.  So after discussing it with my Hubby, I left at the end of April.  Welcome to scary world!  Now I have to make sure my business definitely works as there’s bills to pay.

A lovely friend told me about this group on Facebook who are very helpful and friendly.  Oh my gosh!  This is not just a group, but a community of lovely people who are only too happy to share their knowledge and expertise.  And even a virtual hug if it’s needed.  I’ve given myself so much work to do (all good stuff) through the help and advice on here.  I’m taking it to the next level starting from next week as there’s a membership group where I’m going to learn even more stuff!  I’m sure I’ll be right out of my comfort zone, but that’s all to the good.  Bring it on!

Feel the fear…

Woohoo…I think I’m finally getting there with this website stuff.

I am a member of an awesome Facebook group which supports indie biz folks through every possible thing you can think of.  On a Friday there is a ‘Feel the Fear and do it anyway’ post where members share their positive stories from the week – however big or small.  It’s an awe-inspiring post as you can imagine…well today I can definitely say I’ve managed it and come out on the other side.
