Hey guys, I thought it would be fun to share with you, a typical day in the life of a food entrepreneur. It’s not always glamorous (sometimes it’s a total pain in the ass, I’m the first to admit), but I have to say, I’m loving it.
Here it goes….
6:30am The dogs start to stir which mean everyone in the bed (yep, we sleep with these guys) is getting up. The hubs walks them, but I always take a few minutes to linger in bed, feel grateful that I don’t have to be somewhere at 8am and think about what I want to get done that day.
7:30am We’re all up and I’m finishing up my first coffee and reading my email (shame). For a short while I would sit in the family room and read inspirational books and avoiding email until mid morning, but that didn’t last. It’s not like I’m getting super important/life altering information through my gmail account, but I can’t wait to read what’s in there nonetheless. Then I make breakfast (eggs + greens or ProCakes) and respond to emails.
10:00am I’m upstairs in my office now. I’m creating blog posts, editing pictures, paying bills, fulfilling orders or talking to my copacker. The dogs are sprawled out in their bed beside me and one of them is always farting.
11:00am I work out – yoga (in my bedroom via free youtube classes), weights in my office, or a spin in the man cave. If I run, it’s before breakfast and only when I’m feeling super ambitious.
1:00pm to 3:00pm is phone calls, more content creation and too much time wasted on twitter and Facebook. I have this little mastermind group with other early stage food entrepreneurs and we engage in conversation via our little private Facebook group all day. I can’t imagine life without them now.
4:00pm I spent at least 30 minutes berating myself for not having anything clever to say on social media. This really kills me.
5:00pm take the dogs out for their third walk of the day. Are you starting to get a sense of who really runs my life yet?
6:00pm I’m starting to get cabin fever in my little home office, so I pack up my laptop and other devices and head down to the kitchen/family room. I chat with hubbie, ask him what he wants for dinner then go ahead and make whatever I feel like making anyway.
7:00pm We wine and dine.
8:00pm to 10:00pm is either spent watching Real Housewives of wherever or back on the computer to edit photos, write more blog post (as I’m doing right now) or chat and chill with hubbie.
10pm Bedtime. Always. I read, hubbie plays with dogs and gives them final walk and then they all crawl in for a good sleep before it start all over again the next day.
Sometimes things vary, like dinner with friends or date night, or maybe I spend an afternoon shooting pictures, but this is frighteningly accurate for my typical life.
It’s a thrill a minute, right? I’d LOVE to know what you do in a day!! Care to share? How is my life different than yours?
