I went from a few years of burning the candle at both ends, especially in the last year and a half, to a couple of weeks of unstructured “free” time and to say I felt discombobulated would be an understatement. I am actually getting sufficient sleep for a change although my schedule is currently turned upside down. The night owl prevails. The intention now is to work on some basic changes that will help with the life-work balance that always seems to elude me. I intend to add in an exercise piece that will become a habit that I can build upon.

The last couple of weeks have not found me idle by any means. I have been stoking the creative fires, brainstorming and trying to drum up some new clients or paths to earning more income. While I learn to embrace this new life of precarious work, I am also trying to spend time with friends and family and enjoy the break. Regardless, the reality is that I need to work and work a lot to keep all the balls in the air. Bring it on! I’m more than ready to get going again.

I can already tell that this comparative lull isn’t going to last long–which is ultimately a good thing. It is pretty clear that just about every business these days needs print and web materials to share their message and I am fully equipped to supply top quality results. Not only can I help businesses meet these needs directly with the suppliers of their choice, short or long-term, I have a strong record of assisting print shops and creative teams coping with overload scenarios. My newspaper background means I can help you realize top notch results quickly. All those years of multiple daily deadlines have served me and my clients well and will continue to do so.
