WEEK 39 - POST 2
Last weekend I spent almost a full day driving around to sites and taking photos - so that was great! I even was taking photos at this one location and the owner came out to "spruce it up". That was so nice. It was great to be out (felt like I was replenishing my "cup" of energy and creativity) and even to talk to this really kind gentleman who gave me some new ideas! (Love chatting with people about my passion!)
I got three new blog posts up by the end of last week and I also spent time last weekend on a couple of blog posts and was frustrated on Sunday when I wasn't able to complete one. One of them - a "Best of List" is being difficult to put together but I do feel like I'm closer and it's fine that I finally set it aside and will look at it again in a couple of days when I feel refreshed!
I watched the rest of the M.F. videos (three in total) and there was some great "encouragement" type stuff. I need to find something that resonates more with me though - not this super slick almost unreal type of business. I know it "feels" genuine but its slickness makes it feel "packaged" to BE genuine. It's a business at that point (when it's so slick) and you have to be willing to switch from connecting with each customer to delivering a great product. And it has to be a GREAT product if people are willing to make that switch also. Stuff to think about. I just want my stuff to feel truly genuine.
I'm also motoring through some Jen & Tim podcasts. I wasn't listening to them weekly this fall, so I'm way behind. So Monday found me listening to them each time I went down to the kitchen. I made myself a real lunch (yay - warmed something up which is a big achievement) and put together soup for dinner at around 3 pm. I also listened to a couple more at the end of the day - maybe a better way to get ready for bed than more tv?
I still really need a weekend (a couple of days during the week?) where I work on my 2017 business plan!! But I think that's going to be AFTER I get the fact sheets done. But I am wondering if I should shift some stuff as the priorities are:
- get back to lawyers
- keep up with blog
- do first recording of MP3
- do taxes for 2016
- work on small downloadable "best of" to launch this spring!
- do guest post (mine for mid-April)
- get some fiction writing done!!
- social media plan + advertising plan
(really just the overall business plan for 2017!)
(not too much at all - right??)
