Two Things

Bonjour mes amis!

How are ya? The kiddos weren’t feeling all that stellar this week so I’ve gone into mommy nurse mode. Youngest is still feeling a little under the weather but we have been able to watch quite a few cartoons.

While the girls were resting I’ve been emailing several websites to try and get some freelance work. Crossing my fingers that one of them replies back with positive news. I had one possibility a couple of weeks ago but I think I scared them off when I told them what my rate for posts were.

Sure I could have told them that I’d work for whatever they wanted to pay me but I didn’t really want to go that route. Gals and guys, please don’t settle for less than what your time and effort are really worth. Don’t devalue yourself. The only time I would say that you should possibly go the “work for less or free” path is if your heart is screaming YES! YOU MUST WORK WITH (insert dream client/employer here*)! THIS IS SOMETHING YOU’VE WANTED FOR A LONG TIME! DO IT!

Yeah.

It’s kind of hard to ignore a screaming heart. 

Trust me on this.

So, two things to remember: Know your worth and listen to your heart.

I hope you all have an ab fab weekend! 

Much love, bacon, and sprinkles,
 Arbine
