July Life + Biz Review

Welcome to the July 2022 Life + Biz Review! It’s time for a monthly update! I’ve been holding steady on the daily accountability posts in the Den Community to share what I do every day to help me get closer to my goals but decided that July was the last month I would do it. Instead, I’ll be bringing challenges into the community, but more about that in a bit.

What am I doing in this life?

I recently connected different parts of a few trails that I run on the regular and ended up completing my first 7 miles in a long time. I did it in just 2.5 hours and felt really good about that. I am continuing on alternating my workouts which really seems to help.

I’ve been working on lots of art because not only did I add more events to my schedule, some of them are big(ger) events with lots of foot traffic expected or they are multiple days with foot traffic expected.

Other than that, we’ve been pretty much at home, enjoying the pool when the weather allows. We’ve had a lot of thunderstorms – seems like 3-4 a week here of late. I’ll be heading to a concert tomorrow with some friends and am looking forward to my vacation at the end of this month!

Let’s dive into my ongoing goals:


  • Create 2 new Wood-Burning Tutorials a month – this is definitely ongoing work in progress
