Red Room Remodel: The Gauntlet Has Been Thrown Down

We have been in our house for almost 4 months and we are just living. We want to do more settling in but it seems like we- well, I am always busy with the large array of things I’m currently juggling. However, I need to carve out space to get things done. I originally setup office in the guest room, not really imagining that we would ever have many guests but in the time that we’ve been here, we’ve had 4 or 5 which caused me to shuffle things around in there when we have visitors. Doing this makes me not want to bother using it which defeats the purpose. The answer? The workshop. We don’t use it and we would never use it for its intended purpose so… Why the hell not? This is going to be a bit of a project though. This is the room:

See that? The red paint? Yea, that will be the first thing to go after I clear out the junk.

I’m basically writing this and future posts about it to hold me accountable for getting it done. I don’t have a complete plan together for it but I’m working on it (this means browsing Houzz, Pinterest and Apartment Therapy). I’m really excited. As you can see, it has a lot of natural light. It has the potential to be pretty damn awesome.

Lady Founder's Brunch: Combatting Burnout

I have come to find a lot of comfort in attending events specifically targeted at someone like me. This week, I attended an event at WeWork called Lady Founder’s Brunch: Combatting Burnout hosted by Porsha Thomas (Founder of Ladypreneur League/WeWork Associate Community Manager). The event’s focus was on female entrepreneurs who have reached or are trying to avoid burnout and how to conquer it. As someone who has recently fallen into this space (hard), I felt so comfortable and reassured that I wasn’t alone in my frustrations. It was a truly great event and I look forward to the next one!
