What does your daily routine look like?
After going full time with photography a little over a year ago, I’ve had to make some major changes to my daily routine/lifestyle. I’m usually up by 8 (not a morning person) and have breakfast on my back porch. I sometimes take a morning yoga class at my gym and then get my day started around 10 or 11. I work through emails every morning and go through my to-do list -- which is usually loaded with editing projects. I give myself breaks to check social media, eat lunch and play with my pup. I almost always have on background noise (music, tv show, etc.). My husband is a fireman, so if he’s on shift, sometimes I work until 10 or 11 at night just because I am by myself and don’t feel like I’m taking time away from family time. The really nice thing about being your own boss is you get to make your own schedule, but you have to make sure you really focus on getting tasks done and set strict deadlines/hours if you want to be successful.
