An Update on Me (and an introduction to Sway Group!)
My initial thought that working from home would free up oodles of time to get blogging done appears to have been woefully misguided. Alas, I have been moving 100 miles/hour.
For those who didn't hear (though these days with Twitter and Facebook, it's hard not to be apprised of daily happenings), I officially launched my company on June 20! It's called Sway Group, and you can read all about it on the Sway Group site, or in the amazing article that was published in AdAge on the day of our launch.
I am still trying my hardest to keep my life balanced. I am happy to report that the laundry is still getting done, and my plants are happily watered. My home office is half organized, but I know where it needs to go. So that's something.
Last week, Michael handed me a copy of the 4-Hour Workweek, and I devoured it in just a day or two. While I don't see myself adopting all of Tim Ferriss' ideas (I just don't think I will ever be able to winnow myself down to checking email just once a week. I can barely survive checking just once an hour.), I found it fascinating, and I have been looking at my daily life through an entirely different lens.
For example, what am I doing now that can be outsourced? How can I automate the time-wasting stuff that fills my days to free up more time? What exciting things would I actually DO if I had more time?
Have any of you read his book? What did you think?
