Another year is in the record books, the archives, it’s history.
So…looking back, what would you have done differently?
I for one, would have set expectations for my family a bit differently. Doing business as Newell Design is currently freelance, meaning I make my own hours to fit what my clients need and what I need to make it work. What doesn’t work out so well is thinking and planning on doing certain tasks without telling my husband and 3 year old… it results in fights, tears and disappointment. So, this year, one of my resolutions is a promise to myself and my family that I will clearly communicate my schedule and schedule my work time each week so we can have quality time when it is expected and to say “no” to projects that don’t work with our schedule. (And remembering what I do with my time affects the people I love most!)
