This week is "Work From Home Week" and I mentioned at the start of the week that I would come back to this.
There's a myth that working from home is full of distractions and is loads of fun. Or that as a self-employed person you have to work long hours, give up your social life, family time and pour everything into your business.

I want to share something important with you. When it's all going to shit, when the poop is really flying at the fan, HOLD ON. This is the time your resolve is being tested the most. Last weekend my family and I said good bye to our horse. I can't begin to describe the pain and guilt and anguish over this loss. It's almost a week on and we are sad to our bones, troubled by the decision we had to make and missing her kind face and soft warmth. On Monday I took a personal day and spent time with my mum and sisters. I also had a proposal due in to a client that day, with a meeting booked in to discuss it on Thursday. I also have my online course which I've been developing and have people interested in joining.

Reading is how we download new information. Until technology enables us to actually download new things, Neo "I know Kung-fu" style, reading and listening to audio books are the areas where the most knowledge can be learnt. Don't misunderstand me, I believe there is great value in some other learning streams too, TEDtalk videos for example. We have been writing for far longer than we have been creating videos though so the depth and breadth of content available is astounding.
