So… those 2 leads? They converted. (Wondering what the apple I’m talking about? Go here to find out more)

I now have 2 new students subscribed (i.e. paid) to my Val’s Bespoke English Lessons tutoring service.

Which is really the best possible scenario I could have asked for after launching the page mid-April. I launched the page hoping for 1 student – and now I’ve got 2.

Things are well also on the subtitles front. I’m back to getting a steady stream of projects after a bit of a spotty period. I delivered a project this morning – and I’ve got 4 more coming my way, due in 2-3 weeks.

Oh, and another well-paying one that’s due mid-June.

So yes, life is pretty good at the moment.

With freelancing revenue looking to ramp up nicely, I’m feeling more excitement than apprehension at the prospect of leaving my full-time corporate job at the end of May. Actually, I’m hardly feeling any apprehension anymore.

Only excitement.

I am looking forward to filling my time with books and walks and long articles, and Better Call Saul. Yes, a lot of Better Call Saul. (I’m on Season 3 at the moment)

3 weeks and 2 days. Sounds like a long time, but I just know it’s going to fly by, with all the projects to wrap up and properly transition.

Someone I respect said something to the effect of: you’re judged by the state of the room you leave it in.

And I intend the room to be pristine, with orderly rows of neatly stacked files – color-coded and alphabetically-sorted, when I leave it.

Oh – how good life is.

This has been a bit of a rambly post, but at least it was short. And now you can get back to whatever it was you were doing.

As always, love,
