On Taking on Too Much

July 5, 2018

I recently had a realization. That realization was that when I am stressed I tend to throw myself into work. If that doesn't work, I create more work to throw myself into.

Currently I am juggling a full-time job (while trying to transition to another full-time job as I'm going to be laid off in the next month or so), being a mom to a 3-year old, and trying to keep up with blogging along with the following platforms that I am trying to build business(es) on:

  • Etsy
  • Printful
  • Amazon Merch
  • Amazon Seller (sell used books)
  • Zazzle
  • Redbubble
  • Createspace
  • Spoonflower
  • Shareasale

That is a lot to take on at once. I'm going to be scaling back a little and prioritizing where I post. Right now this is how I'm thinking of doing my priorities:

How would you prioritize these? I will also be updating how it is going on my blog periodically for those of you who are interested.

Once I get a handle on the above sites I will gradually be adding in more POD sites.

Friendly reminder: Don't bite off more than you can chew otherwise you can quickly become overwhelmed.

I'm also toying around with the idea of starting a Youtube channel. But I haven't determined what my forum should be on there just yet.
