I TRIALLED THE 9-TO-5: MY PROS + CONS.
As a full-time freelancing digital media marketing manager + lifestyle blogger, it's safe to say that I've managed to avoid the 9-to-5. That is, until now. In the last two weeks, I've experimented with the most notorious "hustle" of all: introducing my pros and cons of the 9-to-5 grind.
5 STEPS TO GETTING BACK INTO ROUTINE.
Heading back to Melbourne from #NZFW, it appears life isn't about to slow down anytime soon. Getting back into routine as soon as possible (especially after travel) is pertinent. Here's how I'm doing it.
