Creative Women Interview with Edyta Czajkowska

Creative Women Interview with Edyta Czajkowska

I feel like there is no typical day in the interior design business. One day I could spend all day on an install and another I could be at the showrooms sourcing goods—it really varies. But for the most part, my day usually starts off with breakfast and lots of snuggles and kisses with my kiddos as we plan what we are going to do when I get home. Once I am at my desk, I grab a coffee and tend to my emails, follow up on phone calls, and check on orders. Then I dive into my plan for the day! A lot of the time I will be out and about at various showrooms searching for the perfect piece for a client—whether it be tile, fabric, wallpaper, or a unique vintage find. In the middle of the day, I schedule meetings with potential clients or vendors to see what’s new and exciting. Finally before heading home, I might pop in to a project to check on construction progress and make sure everything is looking according to plan. I truly believe that there is no better way to end my day than by being present with my kids and family, and if I’m lucky, a bubble bath or a bit of reading before bed.

Mompreneurs: 10 Ways to Improve Your Life Without Leaving The House

Self development is so important- it keeps us improving ourselves, working towards our goals and prevents us from falling into a rut. It keeps us on track and ensures we’re living authentically to ourselves and generally being the best we can be- but where exactly do we start? Self development sounds complex but actually, there are lots of things you can do without even needing to leave the house. They’re small things that make a genuine difference overall, but can easily fit into your life. Here are ten ideas for going about it.

Here’s How to give Your Business a Solid start

Building and managing a business is one thing but running a successful one is an entirely different story. We’re all looking to make our business ventures as successful as possible, though, and you won’t necessarily be able to make it just because you really want to.

When Should You Outsource Expert Advice?

When making business decisions, you can sometimes trust your own intuition. However, there are other times when an expert opinion is needed. Here are just a few areas of business in which it’s often sensible to outsource expert advice.

Finding Your Ideal Job Role

If you are looking for some kind of a change in careers, but you are unsure of what exactly to do, you are not alone. This is an experience that many people have had, and it’s something that you should absolutely bear in mind as being especially daunting for anyone who has been in that same position. Of course, no matter what it is that you are moving away from, the world is still your oyster, and in many respects that is what can be so worrying about it. Because you have so many options, you are more likely to feel a little anxious about the change. One thing you can do in the meantime at least is try to get to grips with what kind of job role you might think you can succeed at. Let’s take a look at three things in particular you should focus on if you are keen to find your own ideal job role sometime soon.

Use Creativity As A Team Building Tool

Most companies assume that team building is a natural process that occurs as a result of working together toward a shared goal. However, for the purpose of understanding each other, team members need to be in a position of socializing freely. Unfortunately, there is very little time to get to know coworkers at a personal level when you are pressed for time to comply with an urgent deadline.
As a result, it is foolish for business owners to pretend that work assignments can replace social interactions. On the contrary, if you want to bring your team together around a common goal, you need to set a creative objective that isn’t directly related to your income-generating processes. Your team should create for the sake of creativity!

Learning To Make The Most Of Your Creativity

Everyone has their own innate creative sense, and it’s wrong to say that you are either creative or not. Whatever your own style or way in which this develops and shows, it is there, and there is always plenty you can do to make the most of it and allow it to shine through as you might want it to. Perhaps you are starting to feel that you would like to make much more of your creativity, and to make it more of a part of your life. In that case, there are many things you can do specifically to make that easier and more likely to happen. In this article, we are going to look at the various processes involved in making the most of your creativity: bringing it out, practising it, and putting it on show for the world to see. This could lead to a more fulfilling, far more enjoyable way of living, and it’s certainly worth thinking about.

5 Ways to Use Asana to Manage Your Business

Running a business can be a bit like juggling. You need the perfect balance of so many things in order to keep all the balls on the air. And as a solopreneur or small business owner, it is usually up to you to keep all the balls moving!

Essential Tips to Make Your Small Business More Efficient

In a competitive business world, you need to stay on top of your game in order to keep up with your competitors. Doing so will help your business to stay relevant, stay as a choice for people, and help your business to succeed. But in order to do all of this well, it does need to work as efficiently as possible. If you aren’t able to meet current trends or changes in your industry, then it won’t be able to keep up with others in the industry. Having a business that is efficient can mean making the most out of what you have and can help you to become a bit of a leader in the market. Resources can be limited for small businesses, which is why working on how efficiently things run is so important.

How To Move Forwards When Things Get Tough

Sometimes, when it comes to business, things can get difficult. It can be even harder when you work solely for yourself because it can feel like there is no one to share the load with, and the responsibility is on your head. The important thing is to realise that you are never entirely on your own and that there are people out there who can and will help you and get you back on track. If you are struggling, read on to find out some of the ways you can stop looking back and move forward.

Innovate Your Management Process

Few skills are more critical for effective leadership than listening in a way that makes employees and customers feel understood, accepted and heard.
