Empfire

I know I’m late to the party but happy 2019! One of my goals for this year was to get back into posting more regularly here on Empfire, but I’m off to the best of starts, am I!

I had a cold all over Christmas and New Year, and just as I thought I was on the road to recovery, I came down with a stomach bug (maybe even the flu) this week. It really knocked me about and I ended up giving myself my first sick day since becoming self-employed.

A review of 2018

Last year I found it incredibly difficult to write my yearly review blog post.

2017 was a pretty terrible year for me. I felt broken and completely lost. I was so disconnected from life and my confidence took a massive knock.

This year? Well, this year is completely different. I’ve been so excited to write my yearly review this time around because I’m in a much better place than I was 12 months ago.

The Christmas shopping is done and the presents are wrapped. My “Out of Office is on and I’m back in Shropshire.

I’m ready for Christmas!

December has been a good month for me. I’d been warned that it could be a slow month in terms of business as everyone is more focused on slowing down for Christmas. But actually, to my surprise, it was my busiest and most profitable month this year.
