People seem to think I know stuff. I really don't. Yes, over the past year I have learned a great deal about how to run a small business. Yes, I took an 8 month business course that used social media heavily and taught me a few tricks.
That really means that I know how to wing it.
I mentioned it has been a busy summer. So busy that I can't believe it is almost over. This is really where that saying, "I don't remember days, I remember moments" or whatever (I hate those sayings) really kicks in for me. I remember that I saw every member of both sides of my extended family as well as my husband's extended family. We went swimming a lot on our trip to Oregon. I planned and attended a huge family reunion and attended two weddings of close relatives. I even attended a wedding of a distant relative.
I helped my best-guy-friend-besides-my-husband move to an apartment locally and have had my girl bestie and her family staying with us for the past two months (I wish they could just stay forever). I worked a lot. I put my foot in my mouth and said, "Sure, I'll be Communications Director for the PTO next year." Translation: I will overhaul everything because I am bossy like that.
Logistically, there aren't enough hours in the day for me to get done what I do. There just isn't. That's how I wing it. I also know how and when to outsource, but that's another story for another day.
So really - if you want my advice on something I am totally willing to give it to you, but I really don't know what I am talking about most of the time.
Or do I?
