Well, sometimes life has a way of sneaking up on you. Today was one of those days.
I own my own business, a social media consulting company, and business has been very, very good. I LOVE what I do and I have met some amazing people! It's a new industry, one that is often seen as "fake" or "subpar", but I couldn't disagree more! I can't count the number of times someone has said to me, "Soooo, you get paid to play around on Facebook all day?" Ha! Don't I wish! Anywho, getting on with my day....
I lost a major client today. They just don't have the funding to keep going. I am shocked. And.... sad. Maybe if I worked a little harder on this contract, maybe if I had spent a little more time... I know that it isn't my fault. The client even said so in the meeting, and indicated that she would re-sign as soon as business picked back up. Still, I can't shake this feeling of guilt, or maybe disappointment. I feel like I failed them as a marketer.
I'm a hardcore emotional eater. This is my first BIG challenge since beginning my new lifestyle and by God it's hard! I want the pie sitting in my fridge right now sooooo badly! I know that I am craving it because I am feeling down, but sheesh! You'd think that it was laced with an illicit substance (it isn't!!!) *Sigh* I think I'll take a hot shower, slip into some comfy pajamas and read.
