This is part of a weekly journal I'm keeping about my side-hustle, SendView.
This was a good week.
We had a great monthly planning meeting and have lots of good stuff to work on. We had a handful of new users. We got to chat with someone who used to run a product just like ours and glean some priceless insights into what worked for him (and what didn’t). And I’ve been able to get the ball rolling on a little partnership idea I’ve wanted to try.
And best of all? I also:
- Read a book (How Music Got Free)
- Got a bit of exercise every day
- Slept 7-8 hours each night
- Went night skiing twice (once with the kiddos)
- Had a really productive week at the day job
It’s funny. But I feel like the most important work I do for SendView is between my ears. It’s thinking through problems, planning well, and keeping things in balance. It’s making sure that when I do sit down and dedicate an hour to the side hustle, it’s focused, purposeful, and effective.
In other words, I really think that spending at little less time on the project won’t have any negative impact on it’s success. If anything, so far I think it’s been great for it.
