Monthly Report – Oct 2016

Summary of Oct 2016 –

Think it should tell you all you need to know that I am making this blog 2 weeks into November. I have been super busy. Crazy busy. Scrap that… I’ve been super productive. Crazy productive. Although a lot of the stuff is prep for the future so it has felt like a month of work with very little rewards, so I have actually been looking forward to filling this out, if only to recap it for myself and feel / see stuff is moving forward.

I cut back on gigging to get some podcast / video projects off the ground. I also had to move house (in early Nov) so had to sort a bunch of stuff out for that… And I got an offer for a really high paying, high profiling “deak job” which I turned down. I’ve made that post public, so you should be able to see it here. 

I am aware of how “empty” this month looks. It’s frustrating to even share this post as I had a ton of stuff get canceled / moved and family / personal stuff got in the way which is often the way, but doesn’t get any less annoying. Additionally I did a LOT of traveling the month before so I had booked less in this month. So when you book less and stuff gets cancelled it kinda knocks you back. Onwards and upwards…
