I’m going to earn 100k by 2023

Can I? Dare I? Why the fuck not? I can do what I want, right?

I’ve been writing with a pen for the last couple of weeks. Every day. It’s been really great actually. That’s my Namiki Falcon with Iroshizuku Fuyu-gaki ink.

It’s 11:20am on a Monday. I’m listening to Mary Ann Hobb’s show on BBC6 Music and wearing multiple layers and a blanket over my thighs at the kitchen table. This is my new office. I feel happy. Really happy. But a bit scared about income.

I went freelance 100% at the beginning of November. I have two clients for my social media management and content creation business, but it’s actually only one because it’s the same guy in each instance. He runs a restaurant and is starting an affiliate marketing business of his own. I’ve got a ridiculous amount of training to go through and I love all that stuff. I tell you, no one is more surprised than I at finding happiness in getting into marketing. I mean, what? For real? I know, it’s nuts. But there it is – a job I love, and starting again, again, at the age of 48.

Am I too old to learn new tricks? Am I bollocks. I’ve got this.

Diary entry for 31 December 2023 with an entry saying Earn £100k!

My goal is to get to £100k a year by the time I get to the end of my 2019-2023 Hobonichi planner. I’ll be 52.
