I always enjoy reading day-in-the-life posts because I am fascinated at how such differing schedules work for people. My schedule feels so ordinary and mundane yet I realize that some someone just beginning to navigate their self-employed, work-from-home life, it may be difficult to find a routine. Here is what an average work day looks for me.
