May I Be Freed - If you follow my Instagram Stories you know I suffer with pretty severe chronic fatigue - It’s something I’ve been a lot more open about lately as it seems like it’s starting to get a lot worse - Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is a disease in where no matter what you do, you feel some level of tired - Sometimes it’s just a simple feeling of light headed ness for a second, and sometimes it’s a full day and a half literally unable to leave your bed - I did this piece yesterday (Monday) after a full day (Sunday) bed ridden from fatigue - I was hardly able to get up to go to the bathroom or get food. Any time I did, I was dizzy and on the verge of collapsing - It’s a tired very similar to when you have an awful flu. The bitch of it is, it can happen at any time - CFS has prevented me from so many things in my life. It is the primary cause for my inability to work on art at the caliber I’d like to - I fantasize about spending full 16 hour days doing design and illustration work, being busy the whole day and keeping myself occupied with new ideas constantly - Unfortunately that isn’t my reality. I usually get 4 hours in to a work day before my focus runs out and my fatigue turns my into an aching zombie - I pray that some day soon this will end. I’m trying a whole lot of things to make it work. - Do you suffer from CFS?

M O O D When start a new project, we REALLY do our homework ——- compiling a brand board of on-trend market research helps our clients see our vision for their business. Featured here are 3 different mood boards we just completed for a secret squirrel brand that’s launching in December. For now, that’s all we can say, but think: “high-end service with a very artistic twist” and you might just be able to guess the industry 😜.
⚡️I’VE HIRED SOMEONE⚡️ This is a HUGE deal for me because even though I’ve worked very hard to accumulate more clients each month, there was still this little voice in the back of my head telling me my business I would never get this big. That I would never reach the point of needing to outsource some of my business work to others. 🗣 Hiring someone to take off some of the responsibilities of my business has taken a huge weight off of my shoulders. ⚡️BUT⚡️ This doesn’t mean that I can slack off, it means I CAN start to work even harder. I can fill up that spare time with work that helps my clients up level! Whenever I up level, the clients up level as well! 💪🏽 There is also this new responsibility to make the money to pay the person (and soon people) that I have hired. 🔥 Its not stressful thing, its EMPOWERING to know that I finally have the means to serve others by giving them the opportunity to grow as I grow.🌳 How have you up leveled recently?
