DILO 9-9-2020

Another big week! With so many different things going on, sometimes it’s easier to write DILO (Day in the Life of) the Refoundry.

Abode Hotels A+ Magazine

This week, our Harvestcare brand made it into the Abode Hotel A+ magazine as a feature story: two pages of great content which I’m so grateful for. It will be in their guest rooms for the next two months.

Moved into new workspace

I also moved into our new workspace in Mitchell over the weekend. I have plenty of room for new machines. I just need to sell more Harvestcare and Refoundry products to fund the additional equipment I need.

The final grant pitch is also on Thursday. I’m asking for $30k to help me fund a much larger machine. In my practice run, I took me 9 minutes without any prior timing. I need to get it down to 3 mins. So, I have a lot of work to do today to make the cut.

Poor income week

Despite my busyness, I haven’t spend enough time on contractor work this week to bring in personal income as the grant prep has taken a lot of time. Given the grant’s potential value though, I really can’t stuff around.

It is proving to be a difficult challenge for me to do external work for income that has no hard deadlines when I’d rather be working on my own business. Next week, I think I’ll need to spend more time at the client’s office to try to create the discipline and balance that I need right now to keep things going financially.

I also need to find more time to make the recycled plastic jewelry. I’ve sold about half the ones I had available for sale already. I think having my new workshop space will make it easier to focus and not get distracted when I’m making those products which has been a challenge up to this point with lots of half done pieces.

Just another DILO of The Refoundry!
