The prettiest city in the world 💭 our little holiday could not have come at a better time, I’m desperate to get away + reevaluate some things. Some courage would be nice right about now 🦁 just 2 days to go...
It still amazes me looking back at photos how beautiful Mykonos was 🌺💫
Over the weekend I saw something online that really got to me.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I saw a couple of incidences on social media where people were criticising other people who used a free design tool like Canva rather than hiring a graphic designer. And I’m sorry but I think that’s a really ignorant attitude to have.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Not everyone is in a position where they can afford to hire a graphic designer. And not everyone can afford to hire a web developer, a branding photographer, a coach, a social media manager, a virtual assistant, etc.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes you’ve just got to do the best you can with the resources you have. And there’s nothing wrong with that! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Right now, I don't outsource any of my work. I mean, I would love to someday in the future, but for the time being, I'm doing the best I can with what I have and that's ok. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I would hate to think that someone wouldn’t start their own business or launch a new product or service despite having an incredible idea because they thought that they had to outsource all of their work to an expert.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I would never begrudge someone who wasn't in a position to hire me as their web developer, which is why I produce so much content for those who are building their websites on their own. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve seen people build successful businesses with DIY websites creating using pre-made WordPress themes or website builders like Squarespace and Wix on a much smaller budget. I know it’s possible, and I think we should celebrate the DIY approach to running a business because it's hard work and often it's not a choice.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And as for those who go on social media to belittle those who choose not to outsource without knowing their reasoning, it’s not a good look. Remember, those people that you are talking about in such a negative way could be your potential clients.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
End of rant. Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk. 🙈⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

When they talk it’s hard to hear, it’s only you in my atmosphere 💖
M O N D A Y ➡️ I'm off to London today for @freefromevents
Free From Festival.
I love foodie events and I'm so excited that Mr is coming with me as he's not been to anything with me yet.
I didn't bother with a photo of my breakfast as it was just cheese on toast again but be prepared for an influx of food pictures later and lots of video stories 😉
Now to go get ready and drop the kiddies off so we can head up to Laaandan for the 1st time this week.
