Behind the Scenes: My Little Office Space

MyOffice-1As promised, here's a peek into my little office space! This may not look like much to some people, but this has been a long time coming for me! If this were Cribs and I was creepy, this is when I would say: And THIS is where the magic happens!

Our computers used to be on our kitchen table, which was really a desk anyways, so we had nowhere to eat dinner besides the couch. You know, girl problems.

Stephen's dad built the desk top for us, and the saw horses are from my previous desk (Ikea). I would love to show you the whole desk, but the other half is a little...messy...

The chest of drawers is an ikea hack that took me longer than anticipated. Now that's it's done I can say it was worth it :)

MyOffice-2I have a thing for post-its and surrounding myself with quotes and little reminders. One post-it is a reminder to myself to write active sentences instead of passive ones. Sometimes I can't tell if a sentence is passive, but I found the best example ever and had to stick it: "Passive: The skyscraper was eaten by Godzilla. Active: Godzilla ate the skyscraper."

The other one says: "That which we persist in doing becomes easier to do, not that the nature of the thing has changed but thtat our power to do has increased." -Ralph Waldo Emerson

MyOffice-3The other one says: "All I really needed to know I learned in kindergarten." I forget where I got it, but I'm pretty sure it's a reference to the golden rule, treat others how you want to be treated. You know, Being A Person 101.

The last thing you may notice is a project that I have been working on for a while. I'm creating branded consultation folders!

You probably have no idea why I'm so excited about this, so let me tell you. I wanted to create something for potential clients to guide them through the consult. It's super useful because meeting in person can be a bit of a whirlwind and the contents of the folder will go over a lot of what we talk about during our meeting.

That way we can just focus on getting to know each other a bit rather than having our clients trying to take notes or recall details later. More on this to come!
