New Year, New Addition TAKE 2

Clearly I never followed through with my monthly posts for 2017 but at the same time, I feel like I went through the most changes that year.

When I wanted to start blogging, I was working full time but wanted to have a side gig but I wasn’t really getting traction on gaining clients and wasn’t a hundred percent focused. It wasn’t really going anywhere. I kept contemplating what can I do to kind of promote my business as well as introduce writing back in my life. The original plan was helping other entrepreneurs like posting resources and talking on my experiences as I built my business along the way on a monthly basis but never followed through after the initial post.

January to June was kind of a whirlwind of emotions because I think that was when I felt the most stress and anxiety I have ever had. Maybe even earlier. I have had people around me say things like, “Work is like that”, “You always have to deal with douchebags” etc. But no one really understood that I really didn’t feel right at the place I worked. I did also attempt to search for other jobs but it really came down to, “What am I doing in my life and who am I doing it for?”.

I tend to be a perfectionist. Not sure if it’s the Virgo in me but I take huge pride in the work I do. But if I am trying my best to achieve company goals but I don’t have any guidance and constantly feel like I am not achieving the goals, it will take a toll on me. I always felt like I was on the edge, and for what reason?

How do I know what working in place that I enjoy or can ‘endure’ feels like? I have worked in a lot various positions whether it was a co-op or summer positions and I heavily enjoyed it. All the other places I worked, they handle dishing out criticism as way of improvement. So saying something didn’t work this way, let’s try it this way. When they felt I have mastered something, the give me something else to take a crack at or add to my roles. I never got bored and never felt weird approaching someone and speaking my mind.

Even though I did apply for school in May or June, I wasn’t 100% sure that I would have followed through. I said even if I didn’t go through with it, it would have been my decision. And HOLY, the amount of anxiety I had going ahead with it because it is a huge jump from working full time to going back to school full time when you have responsibilities and bills to pay. I split, but I love my car. It allows me to get to many places in one day! There was one thing for sure though, I didn’t want to feel the same way I did last year as well as if I am working for someone, I rather it in an industry that I enjoy and that we work well together. I gave my two weeks in before school started. I also did cry when leaving because regardless of what I went through there was A LOT of amazing people and because I started off as a temp, I did get to know a lot of people in various departments.

But I still didn’t post when I went to school in September 2017. It was so weird getting a adjusted to school when I went back! Nothing really serious though, I was getting the hang of it until strike happened. Cue horror music. Not thinking that 5 weeks of strike would caused such a mess. I got to get a new part time job. I think I was working on RKMDC at the same time and did try to get a photography assignment done so it wasn’t as if it wasn’t productive at all. It was post the 5 weeks, where I saw how bad the strike messed things up. Shorter breaks, no reading weeks (study fall days were basically a rip off) and having almost doubled the amount of assignments due. This is when I started basically sacrificing some assignments depending on how important they were.

So this brings us to now. January 2018 where I still have 2 more weeks of first semester before we start the second. The second semester looks VERY promising so I ready to kick this year in the butt. Focus on school which in turn can help with KyeWik and RKMDC.

What I want to bring to these blog posts is me and bring out my personality where I am highly helpful and love seeing people succeed. I want to share what things work for me, what things I liked that I came across etc. I find the most inspiring people are the ones that you see the struggle and when you see them make changes for the good. I want to get to that point. I think I lost most of my writing skills so I am also hoping I make improvements just by writing to you guys.

I am still at learning point with WordPress so I don’t think there is a subscribe button yet but I will post my blog posts on KyeWik Services Facebook Page so make sure to give that page a like.

This will be the journey of my 2018.

Much Love,


Renée

New Year, New Addition

Part of the reason why my site had been down for some time was because I had was going through a beginners course on WordPress just to see if there was more to learn about it as well as I had plans to redesign my interest blog, RKMDC blog. So while watching those tutorials and some seminars, it gave me ideas on what to improve, what to add, how to reposition things better, etc. So instead of only redesigning RKMDC, I decided to change up KyeWik. Now you notice that there isn’t really any design difference but just more of laying out information.

I noticed an abundance of ideas referring to blogs to keep clients and customers coming back. So I was thinking for some time. What could I blog about? I had my interest blog but music and shows have nothing to do with freelance business and I also barely had any real tech information I could give others especially for just starting out. The idea that came to me was sharing my experience about venturing into my own business while still fully employed and with many projects on the go.

I would do this by bringing to light some of the resources and experiences I’ve had that has helped and is helping my along the way. Not clearly near expert level but I like to learn and to get feedback on what works and what doesn’t work. Maybe someone knows something that works even better! Which was what I want to make this platform about: helping other freelancers/business owners and collaborating and be like a little family haha!

If you have ideas or questions, let me know! Either I may have a gone through something similar or do some research!


Til the next time!
