It's this week in Β review episode (here's the template I use). Discussing the wins and losses and all that jazz at Lunch Pail Labs this week (3/18/22 - 3/25/22)


What's up everybody? This is Lola Ojabowale, founder of Lunch Pail Labs. Welcome back to lunch pail daily my personal audio diary about building and growing lunch pail Labs, which is a digital product studio based out of Atlanta, Georgia. It's Friday. So we're going through our week and review. It's Friday. It's also one week, a little over a week of me being in the UK. So we'll be here for a few more weeks. But it's been interesting working remotely. And we'll get into some of that in this week, we can review.Β 

So first off started with a goal and vision. Why does lunch pail labs exist? Like why am I doing this? Really, it's trying to build here a sustainable economic engine. next goal is to make at least half a million per year for both products and services. And through Lunch Pail Labs, I've kind of honed my craft in conceiving, designing, building, launching and growing products, I also get to consult with really cool and dope companies. So I think everything but the revenue goal is currently a reality.Β 

In terms of the meat of our reflection here, what went well, what went poorly, what I learned, what went while, I think it was another week of just making it through, I'm not gonna lie, lots of distractions. So because while being in the UK and kind of caring for a family member, in this sort of different space, so there have been a lot of days where it's felt maybe easier to not show up, but I'm very proud of at least doing fulfilling my obligations, doing sort of what I generally set out to do every day with like habits and stuff. And so I'm actually very, very happy spending that I spent so much of the first quarter really focused on like, what are the activities I should be engaged in. Because I don't think I don't think I would be making any progress at all, if I had to do a lot of thinking about what I should be doing. It's almost like kind of more of automatic. Also got some nice messages from some client work that I did. So that was cool. And getting to meet some people from the UK tech scene, I'd say like, those were the pretty, pretty big highlights of the week.Β 

What went poorly, again, I think, distracting. Also, I feel like I've been a little hard on myself with a you know, trying to give like the sort of like best effort, but try to do a better job of just accepting what is, you know, these, this probably won't be the period where I come up with like the most interesting threads or topics or things like that, but we can at least, you know, hit the goalpost for a lot of what I'm doing.Β 

And then I think that also really drives into like what I learned that this is currently kind of like a good enough time. Lots of the execution side of things doesn't exactly look how it is when I'm in sort of my home base. And that's okay, because I am absolutely doing the best just to just to show up. And so kind of what I'm focused on. Next week, I do have a lot of kind of like shallow task work. One thing that I have been putting off I haven't really invested a lot of time in is transcribing all of these podcast episodes. It's not a high brain power task. I basically like feed it into otter, but I think transcribing will give this some more like SEO juice and also heighten the impact of doing doing this podcast, kind of almost turning it into a blog as well. I think that in turning some of my existing content into more long form content are things that I can do that keep sort of lunch pail pushing forward without maybe like my most creative ideas.Β 

So that's really that and client work are kind of like my main main focuses. So this was kind of just like a, we made it through week and that's really all I have to say for this week and review. I hope everyone has a wonderful, wonderful Friday and I will catch you all later.
