I'm not sleeping the last bit in the night/morning very well. I have no trouble getting to sleep - I inherit this habit from my father. It's the last hour or two, usually from about four or five in the morning where I start thinking about what I'm doing and what I'm about to get myself into. I think that it's the mixed focus that's getting me in a spin at the moment. I've got three things in trying to focus on a they are all a drain on time and effort-
Making money to replace the list income from reducing my hours at work.
Getting the house in shape so I don't have to spend time and money in it when the business starts.
Actually setting up the business that I think will be the thing that keeps me gainfully employed (or self-employed) until I retire.
The extra money will come from the mystery shopping I do and from buying books and games and selling them on Amazon along with sales of my two existing self-published books plus any new ones I write.
There are several jobs that need to be completed around the house, most of it painting. I want the house in a condition where we have it just how we want it, as I won't have the time to spend on it when I'm setting up and starting the business. One of the most important of these is the home office. Getting this ready will give me the space to so what I need, without getting in the way of everyone else (and without them getting in my way as well.)
Which brings me to the reason for the whole blog, my change in working hours and everything I'm doing at the moment - the new estate agency business.
I've documented before in this blog what I feel needs to be done, so it's now a case of just doing it.
I'll keep you updated with the actual process of each step, as well as updated in how I feel about things.
