I've been using the fact that my laptop went on the fritz as an excuse not to be working as hard on my business as I need to. Mind you, I did nag at potential clients until they got back to me, so it wasn't like I completely slacked off, however, there's so much work to be done still to get the business growing.
I finally got my new laptop (woohoo!) a beautiful Macbook Pro. I love the way it, like all Macs, starts up quickly. Maybe this is why most offices haven't switched to Macs, they want to give their employees an excuse to get their coffees and chit chat for a bit while their PCs turn on. But I digress. What I hadn't realized though, is that I don't have MS Office suite on my new laptop, which means I can read all my files that I saved to the USB key, but I can't make any changes to them. So, despite my best intentions to start working on my business again, I won't be able to do much until I get the proper software. On the bright side though, having a full-time job means I can pay for my much needed software.
