Hi ya!

I look out the window, the sun is shining, there is a soft breeze blowing the daffy-dils around...and then I step outside, and discover it is actually a *balmy* 40 degrees, and I run back inside. Perception vs reality rears it's ugly head again....sigh. Spring ain't really here yet.

First off - a quick reminder, Teachable's 'Women Who Create Summit' started today and runs over the next 2 days. Attend free sessions from leading female entrepreneurs and coaches, starting early am and ending usually with a 9pm EST session. All free, and all quite awesome.

Now...about the title of this newsletter - home biz burnout. It's definitely something that most of us face when we work from home. I know that many home biz owners are happiest when they have a very defined work vs home time, keeping the two totally separate. For me, I always found it more stressful trying to separate things than living what I refer to as an 'integrated' lifestyle, meaning that I may be answering emails on my iPad while cooking a lovely lunch for my hubby and me, or taking calls while floating in the pool in the summer. I do NOT like having 40 emails to respond to because I ignored them all day. I find it easier to deal with them in small batches during the day, even when I am out of the office 'playing'.

I know people that prefer the structure of working a regular set schedule, while I like being able to pick my own hours, which may mean working from 5am to 11am one day, and 3pm to 9pm the next day - or a marathon design frenzy that lasts for 18 hrs.
And yes, after a product launch, I generally step away from the computer and do something really physical and non-mental/creative, and that can be anything from cleaning out a closet or going for a major hike, just need to get moving! ;-)

Which brings me to today's great reads:
How To Avoid Burnout When You Are A Writer

How To Avoid Burnout When You Work From Home (#10 is my fave!)

Is Working From Home Making You Miserable?

The truth is - working from home is NOT for everyone. And it's rare that I meet anyone that is 'middle of the road' about it - you either love it or hate it. Me? I love it and would not go back to corporate life for anything. I have been self-supporting and working from home since before it was a 'thing', going on 25 years now, since dinosaurs roamed the web ;-)

The bottom line is that working from home means something different to almost everyone, and it's critical to your long-term success and happiness to find the 'version' of work from home that meets YOUR VISION!! Do what fits you and don't let anyone else tell you different!

One last note: there was a major influx of buyers of the Laptop Lifestyle bundle over the last 2 days, and several of you have asked that the Early Bird pricing be held over a few days, so you could make your choices and use your coupons before the price hike....so we have extended the special pricing through March 28th.

Extended Through March 28!
