So it’s been a great week.
I know this is going to be a little crazy because I’m starting my “week” on Saturday as I wrap everything up but I have to say that I am doing it this way because I want to finish this and start posting these on Fridays!
Ok so, to be honest, I’m starting to back off of work on the weekends so that I can focus on me. So, Saturdays are for recording & working on me. Sunday is a “FunDay” … That’s going to be a challenge because the plan is to force a “No Work” rule for Sundays. … That starts this week so I’ll let you know how it goes in the next weekly wrap-up!

Started the day off with two different meetings at The Corner Cup. Both meetings were awesome and had some really good conversations.
After my meetings, I was able to get a few blog posts wrapped up just didn’t get to the SEO side of things or create anything for the visuals/featured images.
I also was able to record a song I started writing September 12, 2001. With the recent school shooting in Florida, I thought I’d take the time to re-record “Another Day”. I finished it and after about 2 hours of editing, I was able to put together a nice little video for it as well.
I relaxed for the evening and enjoyed some R&R!

I enjoyed a lot of R&R and went out in the afternoon and watched Black Panther & grabbed a bite to eat. (FYI – Black Panther was AWESOME!)
Did some research for a project I’m working on & published a couple blog posts.

This day started super early! I was up around 3:30 making coffee and getting the day started.
I have been working on looking at my content strategy for the last few weeks so I started Monday by doing a massive mindmap on the BAW (Big Ass Whiteboard). Planned out the upcoming content for the FreeWebDesignTutorial.com blog along with some videos, books & other awesome stuff.
Had a conference call late in the morning to discuss some SEO & Webdesign work. Great call and awesome people! Just waiting to hear back from them.
Was also able to work a little bit on a few different client websites.

This was one of the longer days this week. I started around 4 am working on some blog posts & doing some more research for a client.
Around 10 I started on a new video for Blue Emu when they went to 10 Experience and did the CrossFit Open Workout 18.2 . It was a long day staring at different videos and listening to the same beat for hours but finished with (what I think is) an awesome finished project. (for an awesome company)
Once I was home I took a bit of time to grab a bite to eat & relax before I wrapped the day up.

Another early/productive day!
I worked on a few different blog posts & started working on the layout for the “Daily Hustle Report” and the “Wake Up Call”. These are going to be fun! ESPECIALLY the Wake Up Call!
Had two semi-brief marketing calls.
But, the majority of my day was spent in editing the video for the “How To Self Publish With CreateSpace” video I put together as I went through the process of publishing a new book project.
The project I have been working on (for the tutorial) is a new journal/book that I’ve titled “HUSH | Daily LifeBook” It started as many different ideas and eventually it all came together for what it is now. Check Out the LifeBook —> Click Here
This video was no joke because it was almost an hour long & after editing it took almost 4 hours to render.
While the video rendered out I finished the day doing some more research into Instagram. Getting all the notes together to update the Ultimate Instagram Guide.

This was a very busy day! I started the day (putting dinner together around 4 am) working on a blog post and going through audio files for the intro track to the new Wake Up Call project. Hit the road for my first meeting of the day with a quick business call.
The first meeting of the day was for breakfast and to plan “Global Domination” :) with Mickey Trivett of WebCoUSA.
Had some awesome food at the Old Town Pancake House with good coffee and awesome conversation!
Finished up there around 9:15 or so and took a decent drive to Dunkin Donuts in Greeneville, TN for the next meeting of the day. Was able to get there with some time to spare before my appointment showed up and was able to catch up a bit with Justin Wilhoit, Owner of Sleep Solutions Mattress Gallery.
I finished the day up with 2 other meetings and a friend over for dinner.

A very productive day at home! Started working on “Looking Through My Closed Eyes”, which is going to be my poetry book. A collection of poems I’ve written from the early 2000’s all the way to a few brand new ones.
Put in a decent amount of time working on another video for a client which is going to be fun once I get to the editing side. Recorded some tutorials for a few clients until my software crashed. Going to need to do some updates tomorrow and not looking forward to it!
Spent some time finally getting the “How to Self-Publish” video tutorial uploaded and live on YouTube.
In the process of getting everything together for publishing this video, I ended up going in and creating the template for the video thumbnail for my youtube channel. What do you think about it? (Comment Below)
Honestly, I liked it so much that I redesigned it with that style as the “featured image” for my blog posts. :)
