7 Reasons I love Being The Queen Of My Business.

Hello there!

Welcome to a very festive Daisy Change, we have plans for a Christmas series this year and so we just got done decorating our site ahead of that. (Also if you are here for the sweet Amazon deals, skip to point 7)

 Anyways,

This post is close to my heart and so I really hope that you can find some value in it.

During holiday season, it can be very hard to stay focused on work when all you really want to do is enjoy the festivities.

We all gotta make the moneys though in order to do all of those fun things, and so we need to focus on work just a while longer. My aim with this post is to help you take stock of where you blog/business is right now so that can you get ahead start of planning something epic for next year.

 Now I know I may have gone an odd way about doing this but, I wanted to have fun with it.

 So enjoy!

 This is 7 reasons why I love being the queen of my blog/business.




Hopefully this will inspire you to keep working on your own Queendom instead of getting distracted by literally all the pretty shinnies that are outside right now.

 Let's go!

1 Freedom.


Ask any business owner and they will tell you, that despite the fact that being your own boss is hard at times and often very unpredictable work, we wouldn't change it for anything because the freedom that comes with this life, is priceless.

Not only do we have the freedom to set out own hours, we have the freedom to lean in to our authentic selves in a way that other career paths just don't allow. Then there's the freedom to stand for what we chose to, to run our businesses the way we see fit to do so, and then my favorite thing of all, the freedom to be as creative as we want to be, but more on that later.

Bottom line the number one thing most business owners will tell you they love about their business is the freedom it gives them to rock life their way!

2 No Glass Celing.


You could say this relates to that freedom thing, and it does, but this still deserves its own section because the impact of not having any cap on earning potential has more benefits to it than just the freedom. Working for someone else means they set the terms of payment. Being my own boss means that I get paid based on what I put into my business. I don't have to have just one income stream (and I don't) and I get to mix it up when it comes to the type of work I do, how I get paid and how often.

If I am happy to work for chocolate I can. If I am cool with doing surveys that lead to store vouchers I can totes do that. Paypal, or bank transfer, or even just working for the fun of it, it's all up to me and this is something that has made me far more responsible with my finances, than any other job could. I am pretty darn confident of that!


3 Creative As I wanna be


In case you didn't already know, I am a proud pegasister. The Brony community rocks!

 (Basically bronies are  adult My Little Pony fans, because the story telling is stellar, the art is awesome and the characters are oh so relatable, despite what you may think, My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic has got a little something for everyone, age is not a factor)

Anyway, one of the characters, Rainbow Dash, has a popular line in the show "awesome as I wanna be" I am borrowing the format of that one-liner to explain this point.

A picture of Rainbow Dash looking awesome as she wants to be! 



Being the Queen of my business means that I can be as creative as I wanna be. I happen to be fortunate enough to be multi-talented, and being the boss of the business means that I can choose to showcase any of my skills at any point. I love arts and crafts, and music is my mayhem, but as you can probably tell, I also love writing and doing digital art, I get to incorporate all of these into my business and that is awesome! 


4 A Community That Cares.



The online blogger and business community is really unique. It is a tribe of tribes, so everyone can find a place in this vast, but brilliant community. If you are stuck on something, you can hit up twitter and someone is sure to know how to do the thing your stuck on, and people tend to be really nice about helping each other out. I've made some really lovely blogger friends this way.

Also since this industry is all about thems good vibes, people tend to be a lot more understanding when you find that actually, you really just can't do the thing...so you find something else to do and its all sunshine and Jaffa Cakes again!

5 Challenges Keep Me On My Toes



So to be real, challenges tend to arise a little more often that I would like, but it does stretch me and force me to step up to levels I never thought possible.

At present I am currently sitting at just under 20,000 subscribers and regular viewers across all of my social media platforms, that number would have scared me even a year ago. I am however all about publishing quality content and that has attracted so many awesome readers that I feel so privileged for every one of you. 

I bring this up however, because believe it or not I am really not that social in my every day life. I am actually really introverted, but the social aspect of this blogger world has forced me to put myself out there a lot more and this leads me on to my next reason for loving my Queendom.


6 Self Growth


Not only has being the Queen of my business forced me to be more social, it has also taught me many other skills that are just really good for life. I've learnt the value of consistency, creating quality content and not being afraid to ask for help when stuck, just to name a few.

Bloggers and business owners have to wear an awful lot of hats. Being the Queen of the business means I have to oversee, the design, content creation, social accounts, and do all the behind the scenes stuff life secure the site and balance the books. These are all skills I learnt through my blogger journey and they are skills that set me up for working on other areas of life.

7 Opportunities To Give Back Are Endless.



The absolute best thing about being the queen of my business means I have so many different options to help others, which is hands down the thing that makes me feel most fulfilled in life. I write my posts for free, they will always be full of value because I am on a mission to leave this world a better place by the time it's time to fly. I try to offer up as many resources to valuable information as I possibly can and that's awesome. I'd like to think I lead by example in exhibiting and teaching the joy life, but recently I have also decided to take on some other things that now seams like the perfect time to talk about.

You may notice this site now has a few Amazon affiliate links here and there, we have already listed this in our policies, but the main reason we agreed to this is because Amazon gives us the opportunity to plug some more resources and cool things we believe in. If you shop at Amazon anyways, why not take advantage of the cool offers we have live on Daisy Change because of our partnership with Amazon?

You'll find links at the top of this page, and in the side bar, but just to make it that bit easier for you, here's a link to our favourite deals on Amazon right now. 

You'd be getting a sweet deal, well also supporting Daisy Change so we can keep churning out quality content!

If you have been here for any length of time you know sales posts are not our thing, but at-least now we have covered this base and now we can get back to those free, fabulous quality posts we usually do.

If you can think of any other way we can serve you let us know below!

Why I am Done Writing About Faith (and the New direction of Daisy Change)

Note for those that know me personally, I am NOT depressed, this is the right decision for me, my awesome readers and allows me to be authentic moving forward.



Okay guys, let me start by saying this is gonna be pretty rough. I am not going to do much editing on this, other than spelling and grammar, so please come into reading this post with the intention of finding the diamonds in the rough, because I promise you, they are there.

Okay that's out the way now I have to give you some background because otherwise this isn't gonna make any sense whatsoever.

Over the years, Daisy Change has changed a lot, I have gone from writing about faith based content, to writing about personal development, then I took on the challenge of writing more business and artistic content. It has been a one heck of a journey to get to this point.

However, this year has pretty much sucked.

I am gonna employ an old technique I used to use here of sharing why without boring you so instead of giving you a long story to read, I am gonna sum up my year in just a few statements.

God only helps those that help themselves. Partnership baby. Fairy tales are not forever. Growth exists outside of our comfort zones, but there are limits. The black dog, Jet likes to play dress up. Unique not uniform, but uniform sometimes. Break time. Friendship Is Magic, Music is my Mayhem and my manna! Focus! Authentic Autumn and here we are.

Okay that about sums up my year, and the past of Daisy Change up till now, so let me just dive right into what I want to share with you.


Back in April I said I needed to take a break, and I then there were crickets....

Then in  August of this year,I started to put faith based content out again. You see I was frustrated with the tiny little box I had created for myself, and with everything else going on in my life at the time, I came to a place where I really really HATED my blog!

I did what any business savvy individual would do, I went back to the books and looked at my stats and examined when I was most happy putting content out....and then I attempted to recapture the magic.

This did not work.

I put out a bunch of faith based posts between August and now, I don't like to make a habit of it, but these posts are now gone because they were making me feel too vulnerable, and hate this blog even more. My faith in God is a huge part of my life, but writing about it, well honestly it just made me feel fragmented on the inside.  This spilled over into other areas of my life, and before I knew it I was in a mess financially, had no energy and felt extremely lost. I had what I am deeming a Mid blog-life crisis.

Up-on realizing that the magic was gone from those former days, I thought maybe I should try something new, but you guys never got to see what I was going to post because even-though I loved the new things, I just didn't feel they would be of use to you, so I didn't end up posting them.

Now I want to get this blog back on track, because right now it feels like Lambi is wondering in a desert she never should have ventured into.


I may well explain more about how I broke out of the struggles I've had with this blog as of late, but for now I feel like I have made my point.

So then Moving swiftly on,

What can you expect to see here in the future?


Well, one thing that has come to light through all of the struggles this year, is that I really dig leading a life of joy and teaching techniques to bring more of into your life and business.  I want to split the content of this blog 50/50 between teaching joy and exhibiting it.

What does that look like?


Well we are called Daisy Change....expect to have a variety of posts about topics that are tied together by the fact they are all based on living a joyful life that is full of love, fulfillment and passion.

We intend to do collaborations in the future, put out some new resources, and really just show you how to have joy in your artistic business by having joy in ours.

I am not going to delete the pre-crisis faithy posts that are way back in the archive. They were a part of the story, but as from now, if you want faith-based recommendations, then head over to Pintrest where we will continue to recommend others that are killing it in that field, even-though we don't do that content here anymore. Or check out our resources section, (which will be live soon) for links to music, books and tools that may help you in that area.

At the moment, we are re-building this website. Please bare with us, it will be epic I am sure, we just need to put the work in and we won't get it to where we want this site to be overnight. We are still in the desert, because irregardless of the fact venturing here wasn't wise, we still have to keep moving forward to get out of it.

Things are still tough, but we are going to make it to the other-side of this, I have no doubt of that.


The above image is a visual reminder to us to remember to take care of ourselves as we are building this. It's the last faith-based image you will see here, as far as I am aware, it is possible that the odd faith-based post may creep in, in the future but if it does, it will be extremely vetted before posting and likely a once in a blue moon kinda thing. In other words, I really am done posting faith based content because it's not consistent with the mission of our business. 

Normal posting will resume shortly, but first I've got a few more posts I want to put out at random over the next month or so. (I think that cluster posting can be good sometimes, but not for always)

In the mean time you can catch us over on social media.

At the moment, Pintrest is a massive part of our every day life, but we are also on Instagram, Facebook. DevientArt  and Twitter. Hopefully we will see you over on one of those.

Anyways, I think I've about covered it.

If you choose to stick around, catch you next post.


Psst - We are launching a new series!Keep an eye out for  our post announcing it later this week!
