About This Class
About the Class
Being a freelancer or running your own business, of course, gives you more freedom as well as freedom to decide how to use your time. But at the same moment it demands more attention and efforts. From one side being boss to yourself and seductions of so called free life can turn your days into waking up after 12am and staying in pajamas all day. Or on the contrary you may become even more busy and hard working than you’ve been working at the office.
Of course, these are extreme scenarios. And, of course, it’s not totally restricted to work from bed from time to time. Nor it doesn’t mean there will be no periods of really hard working (especially at launching period). But both scenarios are not normal in the long run as usual way of working. And before your life will remind one of them it’s good to stop and think where the line between work and personal time is and how to find balance here.
For whom is the Class
First of all this class is addressed to freelancers, crafters and small business owners and anybody who works in home-office format.
There are no direct must-dos and set rules in the class, as balance has very variable meaning that depends on many things. I’ve tried to keep the list of advice very general and flexible - any person can apply them to practice taking into consideration peculiarities and special features of their daily life and job.
So in some way the Class actually can be helpful for almost every working person.

Hello! I am Aleksandra, Sasha or Sashu as my friends call me - that's where my project's name comes from - SASHÙ décor bureau.
I live in Saint-Petersburg (Russia), but originally from Belarus and in love with Paris :)
I make various handmade stuff since early childhood. Now I run Etsy shop, where I sell the best results of my creative experiments that meet all high quality requirements and pass my strong self-criticism filter.
I like to challenge myself, to learn and to develop. This permanent creative process fills my shop with a variety of styles and techniques. I take natural materials (linen, cotton, wool, natural stones, wood, etc.) and transform them to cozy home decor & textiles, stylish earrings & accessories, and other beautiful stuff.
I do everything with my own hands and under ware and waking cat-control - so all I do is #handmadewithlove and #catapproved :)
Behind handmade scenes I’m also a decorator, copywriter and Eng-Rus translator freelancer, projects & events manager :)
Nice to meet you!
