The last few weeks have been filled with a lot of preparation for those of you who are shop owners, and so today, we wanted to put together a simple checklist for you to make sure that you have everything taken care of and ready to go. We'll explain this step-by-step in the post outlined below, and we've also included a free checklist at the bottom of the page that you can download + print to have on-hand as you go through everything. We hope that this post will help you in taking some time to make sure that everything is ready to go, and that you have a successful holiday season!Read More
You constantly hear people saying Team Trello! or Team Asana! and we have to be honest, we've flipped back and forth between the two as well.
However, when it comes down to it, we settled on Trello, and it truly is a gamechanger here for us as far as our organization and productivity goes since it works well with how we like things to be laid out. Like any digital tool, we found that we wanted to make a few adjustments or changes to our preferences, similar to the way you are with most other productivity apps. I knew what I wanted to be able to achieve, and that was to not have to click nearly as much, not have open as many cards, and be able to see everything without scrolling left and right as much as I did. So, I set out to find things that would do just that.
There’s something we absolutely love about setting goals. We love to look ahead and dream about the future, making all sorts of plans, and by speaking it into the world, we seem to think it will automatically shift our brains into gear to make them automatically magically start to form.
Well my friends, as nice as that would be to actually happen, in order for those goals to come to fruition, we have to put IN the work in the first place.
I am one of “those women” who gets up at 4am every weekday, and those three hours that I have just for me before the rest of the house is awake are now my most treasured and my most productive worktimes of the day.
From many conversations I’ve had with many women who are entrepreneurs, especially mamas (most recently on this podcast episode with Suzi of Splendidly Curious), they tell me this is enticing to have 3+ hours a day to yourself other than naptime, but don’t know where to start. So today, this post is all about it!Read More
2018 has started off beautifully! This year, we held our first ever Alumni Mastermind Retreat for eight women who had joined us in previous years for the Conference, the Course, or the Intensive. To those who didn't come this time, don't worry! This will now will be an annual event. We had such an amazing time and we wanted to share the experience with you!Read More
Before we start planning for 2018, it's important to review where we are now.
It’s December of 2017. And everywhere we are turning, there are two main topics. One: The Holidays. Two: 2018.
I love the potential that a new year brings, feeling like you’re starting fresh every year. However, while we are planning for 2018 and what we want the year to encompass, I also think it’s important to take into consideration everything that happened this year, ask ourselves some questions, and build upon them as well. So today, I wanted to give you a few questions to go through to reflect upon for the year, to ask yourself before setting your goals for 2018.Read More
Each year, you create your list of things that will get you closer and closer to your ideal lifestyle and business.
If you’ve been running a creative business for awhile you know the beginning of the year brings "all the feels" of a fresh start, new ideas, and working on something huge! We all get that feel-good, nostalgic flood of emotions from resolutions, making plans, and celebrating accomplishments.
By now, you probably have your plan created (at least I hope you do). You’ve hemmed in those starry-eyed dreams of creative world domination to a few awesome goals that are going to help grow your business.
But you know it's time to buckle down. And if this is going to be your breakout year, you need to add some strategies to your plan that seasoned business owners use - something to tie up the loose ends of your revenue and marketing strategy.Read More
