It will never be the ‘right’ time. So just do it.
Welcome to Business & Brain Fog
I am horrendously guilty of waiting for the ‘right’ time to do something. I do it all the time. Heck, I put off publishing this site for months because it wasn’t the right time to do the 100 tasks I want to be done before I launch so it can be perfect. But the thing is, life doesn’t give you perfect moments, it just gives you moments that you can decide whether or not to take advantage/take part in. And let’s face it, waiting for the perfect temperature/day/fatigue level to work just does not work!
So here we are, a new site in all its ‘new’ glory. A site designed to give you small chunks of information in easy to digest pieces, perfect for those days when your brain won’t give you any rest or you’re exhausted down deep into your bones. A site also designed to break down all the really complicated things you read 10+ times and still don’t understand (I’m looking at you UK taxes).
I’m going to take everything I’ve learned over the past 9 years of being chronically ill, disabled and self-employed and condense it down into a blog, some audio and maybe the odd video along the way. I have both physical and mental illnesses and I’m for the most part bedbound/housebound. I generally don’t like using those terms, but I think it gets across all that I need to convey. I spent 99% of my life nowadays working with my legs up and laptop on my lap. I make enough to live a comfortable life whilst in bed ill roughly 2-3 weeks of the month. I used to be able to do more, but for the past 3 years or so this has been my life.
Aside from being chronically ill, I’m a procrastinator. A big one. I’m pretty sure I’ve got ADHD and 1 or 2 other undiagnosed conditions – my brain is a very busy place. That’s why I have over 10 other websites. And 20+ social media accounts.
I’m going to be extracting the lessons I’ve learnt from my job, blogging, general internet perusal into, in time, a fully fleshed-out blog. Hopefully, in time, there will be guest writers to join the conversation, but for now, welcome to Busines & Brain Fog.
