Well 2020 has been a right royal shit show hasn’t it? The whole world has been turned upside down with seemingly irreversible damage caused to hundreds of thousands of people. But hey, you knew all that already. I’ve tried my best to be a positive Penny, through job loses and changes to our lives. I’ve felt like I’ve faced everything pretty well, considering. But, looking to the future, this whole experience has only made me realise that what I do, isn’t enough for me anymore. I’m craving work, I’m craving my own ‘thing’ something that I’m good at, that’s valued.
It’s been some time since I sat down to write anything, anything I thought about writing just didn’t seem to matter. In the grand scheme of things, who would care? I was seriously evaluating my capabilities as a writer, I know it’s not my strong suit. I used to love tap tapping away and I didn’t think much about the quality. However something has been holding me back and I’m keen to kick it in the nuts and do what it is I love, regardless.
During Lockdown, the first three months we were all isolated from our loved ones and beloved businesses and routines, I faltered. I wasn’t in the best place and I think that’s because I wasn’t able to work. I was at home with the children all day, every day and I was at breaking point. I needed an out. I decided that the only feasible way for me to get what it is I want, without compromising my family life is to go fully self employed. So here I am building my dream of becoming a photographer and stylist in my own right.
It all starts here, I’m relearning how to use a DSLR after a few years off. I’m setting up a styling service for brands where I can create the content they want for their own businesses. It’s going to take some time and it’s going to be tough, but if I don’t do this now, I don’t think I ever will.
So, here’s to Sarah Ferguson Styling and please do follow along, share and pass my information to anyone you think may be interested in working with me. 🙂
