Working That Side Gig

For the next four days I will be working my side gig HARD! Our sales team has set up a booth at Christmas Village at the Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center. I'm hoping for lots of leads and good sales to really work up the business on the side --- since I'm taking vacation time to do this, I'm trying to make the most of it by working 12 hour days for the next 4 days. My feet are going to be screaming!

I'm really excited though and spent most of last night on prep work and planning, plus doing other administrative tasks associated with the side gig. I finally fell into bed around midnight last night and was back up at 5 this morning. I'm not sure how well I'm going to do putting in a 12 hour day with only 5 hours of sleep, but I "think" I'm up to the challenge! Still not sure if my feet are though!

I have to be honest though and say that Saturday, I'll only be putting in 10 hours --- Bama plays LSU in a #1 vs. #2 matchup --- we take our football seriously and there is NO WAY I'm missing watching that game! (Yes, you have my permission to roll your eyes at me now! ha!)

Wish me LUCK!!!!!


  1. I've done such crazy shifts, and trust me, you will crash hard at the end of it! To help your feet, make sure that when you do sleep, you put a few pillows under your feet to elevate them. That is a quick fix. Also, if you have 'desk time' at home, get a tub of warm water and soak your feet for a bit. Even 20 minutes will do the trick.

    Best of luck!

  2. You are hard core with the side job. Love it! And, do you have any compression socks you can wear to help your legs? Take breaks, rest as you can, and make sure you stay hydrated!

  3. I'm not always this hardcore with the side gig. Believe me, I've kind of let it get lax in the last couple of months --- this is to really jumpstart it! I hope!
