Do you work from home or out of an office space?
Yes from home, library and Starbucks.
Tell us about your typical work day?
I usually don’t start working until 10am. Before that I get myself together mentally. I may read or write. I work until 6pm online (If I’m at the library or Starbucks). Then I go home and work on proposals, presentations, researching and etc. I usually work until I pass out.
What are your most productive work hours?
10pm – 2am
What is your biggest challenge as a solopreneur?
Not caving to the pressure of trying to get all things done at that moment. To actually pace myself and do what I can, when I can.
If you were given $5K, what would you do with the money?
Invest in my business by adding contract workers to outsource work to. That way I can spend more time on the creative and income generating activities.
What is the biggest/best invest you made toward your brand/blog?
Attending Speak for Pay to become a more effective speaker.
The one piece of advice I wish I knew when I started out is…
Don’t spend money on everything.
