As much as I might think I’d like to… I’m not writing at some beach-side tiki bar, sipping umbrella drinks, or raking in big royalty checks from tapping out financial sales letters on my laptop.
But you know what?
There’s a 99% chance at some point my writing pal, Cocoa will be within a few feet waiting for the next walk around the park.
Any time I want to I can make two cups of coffee, bring one down to my wife working in her fiber art studio, and take a little break…
Or, maybe pick up the phone and call my elderly dad, or my kids.
On warm, sunny days I’ve been known to stand at my office door and say…
“Nope. Not doing it. Today is my day off.”
Sounds like I’ve got it good, doesn’t it?
Actually… I do.
What makes it so great is… not only do I have the freedom of working from home, but I absolutely love what I do.
But, don’t get the idea I’m lazy or spend all my time sloughing off though. It’s really the opposite.
Because when I’m walking Cocoa in the park? More than likely I’m thinking about your project.
When I’m working out in the morning, there’s a good chance I’m thinking about your project.
When I’m out grilling up some steaks or burgers, I’m likely thinking about your project.
When I’m on a date with my wife…
Okay, well I’m not thinking about your project then.
All the rest though? That’s just how I am.
In fact, it’s 2:35 AM and I’m still up working.
But it doesn’t feel like work to me.
Yeah… writing e-mail newsletters and e-mails is the best work I’ve done. Of course, I wind up doing other projects for clients too. But from all the other things I’ve done in life this is the best gig.
Only one thing rivals it.
Getting out my Martin HD28, heading out to a gig, and performing my original songs for a listening audience.
I’m glad I don’t have to choose between the two, because I love both. And they are a perfect match for each other.
When I’m not doing that? I’m off doing my Vice President duties for our songwriting organization: working to improve member benefits, building our membership, putting together online Zoom events, interviewing our members and industry pros, and… writing e-mails.
Big surprise there, huh?
I also spend time songwriting, canoeing, fishing, hiking… I’m a bit of a foodie. Plus, I keep up on music industry trends, read books on marketing and business, attend training events, and continue to improve my craft.
Okay. You get an idea of who I am by now.
And when it comes to working on your project, you get the same guy. Accept I’m in “helping you with your customer relationship” mode then.
