My sister and I uploaded two videos a while ago or rather a few years ago that still to this day I love. Two videos where Amelia and I sat in front of the camera “naked”, both visually but also emotionally. The idea was to tell you not just the usual content like what we had for breakfast but to discuss something at a deeper level, something that even I may have not actually known about myself or simply say something to show you we are not perfect and lay bare my thoughts and opinions.

I’ve thought about this a lot and I strongly believe it’s tied to being self-employed. You know that dream so many of us have? To work from home, to work our own hours, to decide our own holidays. You also get the beautiful feeling of constantly feel guilty when you aren’t working along with it. Go on holiday tomorrow, sure! Feel guilty because you’ve spent money on a holiday and also aren’t earning any money while on that trip -sure! (say goodbye to holiday pay). Oh and also because you are not finding any future work whilst away on this trip, you get to feel guilty about the future too – woop!
