Working as a Marketing Consultant from the farm is one of the aspects of my work that is very complimentary to my new life although who would have thought it!
It will be interesting to see how it works after the baby is born.
I call myself a Marketing Consultant with a specialisation in online marketing which basically means I work with other small – medium sized businesses on all things marketing but mainly focus on their online presence (websites, email newsletters, social media, branding etc). The beauty of it is that I am not restricted to working Mon – Fri office hours, I can work when I want mostly. This is of course when I don’t have a deadline or a meeting planned.
It has meant that this long weekend, while Farmerboy has been working through the night – 7.30pm to 8.30am cutting hay and sleeping through the day, that I can get lots of work done. A weekend barely means much around here except that on Saturday’s Farmerboy likes me to pick up the papers from the post office and the phones and emails are a bit quieter.
This weekend I have found myself getting into the ‘zone’ in the evenings and working through til 2am which is a bit crazy really but when you are on a roll it is best to keep going. Have managed to get a lot done which is satisfying including some billable work – even better. I have lots of loose ends to tie up before the baby is born. You know taxes, paperwork as well as lots of little jobs for clients and some of the volunteer organisations I work with. The Moora Races is on the 13 Oct and I have been looking after their website, advertising, PR and a new TV campaign which has kept me busy.
Getting our body clocks back to normal time tonight so we are back on everyone else’s time tomorrow will be challenging. Thankfully the pregnancy is making me tired enough to sleep whenever I get the chance!
