April is a month in which I generally take a break. It is a month of family travel, less reading and writing. But this year, this trend was turned on its head. It has been an extremely hectic month workwise. Here is a roundup for this month:
Coco Smart Homes is keeping me inspired day and night. I attended #BreakingBarriers event held by Women’s Web and that was a great opportunity not only to showcase my products but also to network with other bright-eyed women entrepreneurs. Some of the exchange of ideas and feedback was quite useful. We are currently looking to both expand our team and our range of products. And I am very excited with what we have planned. So that is consuming a lot of my time as I am very hands on with everything communication, right from creating Marketing materials, online creative to website, blog, online marketing, offline Marketing and so on. I have so many ideas bubbling in my head that I continue to dwell upon them as I fall asleep. So very grateful for this buzz and excitement though it is really exhausting. I am working from morning to night and there are highs and lows.
I am also very grateful for my regular client work especially my long-term projects and brand collaborations. Really thankful to my colleagues and PR partners. I enjoy writing. I really do. And my blogs are my passion. Even though they make me money, they are first and foremost my creative outlet, my passion. So grateful for them!
There is a lot going on at home front. We got some major work done at home. External painting just wound up. And it is such a joy to see all your toil come to fruition.
The younger son recently finished reading Ramayan, The Epic. He is now onto Mahabharat and is also reading Harry Potter simultaneously. Pretty amazing choices, I’d say. The older one is also having a very hectic schedule. We went and got their new books. Always love the feel and smell of new books.
One of the highlights of the month was when I found myself nominated as The Most Inspirational Blogger at The Annual Bloggers Awards to be held in the UK. I think I was the only Indian blog to be nominated, and that very fact was a huge shot in the arm. Always a great feeling when one’s work is appreciated. So very grateful to the person who nominated me and also for all my friends who voted for me. Here is the cute badge they sent.
Another highlight was when I got a pretty good work offer that I had to refuse because of lack of time. But the fact that the CEO came home to pitch to me was quite something. It makes you realize how much you are appreciated for your work. And that makes you work harder.
May is special. My two boys have their birthdays. So looking forward to it.
A bit of a health niggle is that I am nursing a sudden knee sprain so exercise has been thrown out of gear. I am strangely at peace with it because I know I will be right back once I am feeling fine. Till then it is time for some TLC for this knee. Every single movement makes me realize how much we take from granted with our well-oiled bodies. Hopefully, this will be behind soon and I will be back to normal.
So that’s pretty much about April. Let’s see how May pans out? How was April for you all?
