5 Ways to Make Writing a Habit

If you are a human being, you are well aware that creating healthy habits is harrrrrrd. It’s very easy to make the other kind of habits, the ones you can’t seem to shake. But sticking to good habits? Not so easy.

Writers are no exception to this rule, which is strange because we love to write. Writing is our passion, our calling, our outlet. So why is it that days, weeks (ahem—months) roll by and we continue to wish that we had time to write, all while snuggling on the couch for another Netflix marathon?

Help! I don't know how to make my business profitable

Help! I don't know how to make my business profitable

HELP! I’m not making much (or any) money… I don’t know what to do.

Hi love, I hear your cries for help and I want you to know I’m here and I understand this panicky feeling. 

You started this work because you love it. You not only love it, but you’re really good at it! You’re looking for that awesome freedom everyone talks about — maybe yours looks like chillin’ by a pool basking in the sunshine, or renting that awesome apartment with all the windows so you have light streaming in from everywhere! Or maybe it’s buying a house for your family or retiring your husband/partner from their jobs? 

No matter how it looks to you, you want it. SO bad. And you made the leap! You started a business! But none of the moola is raking in yet. 

When is it time to automate?

When is it time to automate?

We ALL want to automate our business right? Get some of the day to day details off our plates and have it automatically just work! (Our business working for us in the background sounds AMAZING right?!)

 

So recently I’ve noticed a few people mentioning they went to set-up some automations… and after hours or days of trying, they through up their hands (after almost pulling their hair out) and said, “I’m done! This is too hard… I give up.”

In my inbox the other day was this question:

“What is the foundation I need to implement in order to create a successful empire?”

I love this question so much. And there are so many things I can say to answer this! But after some thought, I’ve narrowed it down to 6 things you need to build a solid foundation that can handle the creation of an empire. (or I also love the word legacy).

How to Grow Your Business - in 30 minutes a day (or less)

Do you feel like you’ve got this business thing down? Are you excited every day to go into your business and work on all the “business stuff”? That’s what you most look forward to right?

You don’t care about being creative and and honing your craft, you love working solely on the business side of things - no need for all that creative stuff.

A few months ago work was REALLY feeling like a huge chore and I didn’t have much motivation to do anything… Sometimes I wonder, am I lazy?? Because all I want to do right now is binge watch ANYTHING on Netflix instead of the work I feel I HAVE to do right this minute.

I was getting super frustrated, at anything and everything, my poor kitty was just trying to play and I wouldn’t have any of it...

I was going down what I like to call a doubt spiral - where will I find new clients? How is this going to work? Am I doing everything wrong? Can I even do this?

Realizing I was spiraling out of control, I took a break and walked over to my window to look out for a minute. I saw some of my neighbor kids playing in the yard - laughing, yelling, playing make believe and running around like their legs couldn’t stop.
