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!
