Shop Talk: Your Schedule

Welcome to Shop Talk, where we chat about everything from the business processes and procedures you swear by to how you handle tough situations (like letting go of a client) to what gets you up on Monday morning. Give us a sneak peek into your business and inspire (and be inspired by!) our community.

Some people love a consistent schedule: waking up at the same time every morning, going through the same morning ritual, working during a set period of time. Others thrive on variety, choosing to wake up at different times each morning, varying their breakfast, and working as the mood hits them. Which works best for you- sticking to your tried-and-true routine or letting your mood and energy levels determine your schedule?

Welcome!

Welcome to One Woman Shop- part resource, part community, all heart. If you’re a solopreneur or freelancer who is starting or expanding her own business, you’ve found your home here.

You may be wondering how One Woman Shop came about. We’ll give you all the nitty gritty details in our upcoming behind-the-scenes webinar but here’s the gist: we know tons of awesome, spirited, proactive female One Woman Shops who aren’t afraid to go it alone- but we noticed that many of them mentioned that they felt isolated, especially when working from home day in and day out. We figured, “Why not create a site where these women can learn, ask questions, and build relationships?” And so One Woman Shop was born!
