Today was a little different. I had an in-person meeting at a marketing firm downtown this morning. So I dressed in professional clothing and set off for the 'L' with my portfolio in hand. It felt good. And the meeting went well (from what I could tell!) so that's a plus.
I created a portfolio of my work this week in anticipation of today's meeting. It's cool to flip through and see what I've written all in one place... hard copies that I can touch, not just click to read like the writing samples on my website.

Lunchtime and the afternoon find me back at my desk. I love to surround myself with pretty, colorful things. Inspiration within reach at all times.

I'm still adjusting to my new lifestyle... or "workstyle" if you will. It's nice to have the flexibility, but with that freedom comes responsibility. The success of my business is totally up to me. I find myself thinking, Is this real life? Is this really my job?! It's exciting. It's scary. It feels right.
Those of you who work from home: any helpful tips to share?
