It's a wrap! July

If someone would have told me three years ago I’d one day go on a business trip to Iceland, I’d have thought they were joking. But now, almost three years after going freelance, what I thought would be impossible became a reality. This past month, I started working with Anitar, Inc., an Icelandic startup that focuses on revolutionizing horse tech, to help them launch a Kickstarter project

Now, and given I said I’d prefer to take a break from working on Kickstarter projects to focus on marketing hotels and restaurants, this project was truly quite unexpected. Honestly, Karl Már, the founder of Anitar, pretty much bribed me with the idea of working with horses for two months. 

The beginning of the month was busy through and through, and although I finally managed to publish Work Trips and Road Trips, a book about working mindfully and also taking breaks as a freelancer, I must confess that I worked 24/7 and on several weekends to make everything happen that piled up on my to-do list. But sometimes, and even when you’re trying to avoid such moments, they still might sneak in. 

As you can image, the proudest moment of the month is that Work Trips and Road Trips is finally out and available on Amazon! Jamie Milnes and I have also finished the copy for the website of his agency, Double Underscore, and I also handed off the copy for the Go Global Outsourcing, Llc. website for Jamie to continue working on the design with the lovely Go Global team. Also, one of my articles on how to take a vacation as a freelancer was published on the Freelancer Union. A milestone! I’ve also been working on the Skillshare class about how to structure a website if you’re a freelancer. I started working on this class to help myself structure my own websites, however, I still haven’t managed to come very far with them. Planned release, nevertheless, is in September. Wish me luck! 

At the beginning of September, I’ll be at Reasons.to in Brighton, then a wedding in Italy, and after that, I’d like to start working with companies from the hospitality industry. If you know of someone who knows of someone in that sector and you know they need help with marketing, please connect me! Thank you! 

It’s a wrap! June

Let’s start with the most unexpected news: I got a dog. The fun back story is I decided to finally get a dog after reading The 4-Hour Work Week in Bali. I love dogs. I’ve always had dogs and I really love how having a dog impacts your everyday life. You become much more approachable to the people around you. A dog simply breaks away the social barriers. You also feel much more present, like you really notice the seasons and how time passes. I love that.  

I figured if Tim Ferriss can have a dog, I should also manage to have one. Even people with dogs travel. With or without them. Of course, I know how everyone always says you won’t be able to travel anymore, but I think it’s more a question of how you handle the fact you have a dog and still need to go away. I’ll just need to socialize her properly and go to puppy school. That’s at least the plan for now.

June has been an extraordinarily busy month. I feel like I’ve worked on way too many projects and because I’ve been busy doing so many things simultaneously, I’ve also not managed to finalize anything.

I’m currently working on projects with Christiane Wallner-Haas, the team at Go Global, Greta Gotlieb, Jamie Milnes, Karl Mar Larusson, Mike Lanner, Mike Katzmann, and Sarah Halbeisen.  

I’m fully booked throughout the beginning of September and as you know, I’m currently rebranding my business. If you know of any hotels or restaurants that would like to try be more experimental with their marketing, please let me know!
