New Thoughts

With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.

~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Some of the tasks of the week;

  • hair
  • headshots
  • brainstorming
  • goal setting

These all amount to putting attention and priority on Me.  More accurately, these are just some of the steps to help me become more successful and professional in my field. There are plenty more to go, and many of them should be regular occurrences, but constantly moving forward is key in the fast-paced world of social media and good for anyone with an online presence.

Focus and Thrive

Having my hair done not only makes me feel better personally, but it also makes me look more put-together and professional. A win-win all around. I get to visit with my therapist stylist, plus know that I am more presentable when interacting with others. Just because you work online versus in person with others, doesn’t mean you should let go of your appearance!

Taking the step of getting headshots done is an investment. Professional photos let people know I take myself seriously and they should too. It costs money, but creates an  image that lets people know I’m worth it.

Brainstorming should happen regularly. It helps to gather ideas for posts, for new directions with marketing strategies, and for goal setting. Today’s brainstorming session involved identifying terms related social media. Don’t be surprised if you see some definitions popping up on the blog in the near future!

Goal setting isn’t always my strong suit, but that doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be a part of business. I might be able to get by in life by the seat of my pants, but that doesn’t necessarily move my business forward. Getting headshots done in 2018 was one goal that I can almost cross off my list. Yeah, me! Figuring out new ways to increase my business and income is another thing I need to focus on and implement. Writing these ideas down is key to making them happen.

I suspect I need to do a little more brainstorming, but I also need to take some concrete steps to move me forward. I think it’s fair to say that you’ll see more writing about these thoughts in the future, as I figure them out here and in real-time.

If you need help brainstorming, throw me a prompt! Maybe we can figure out freelancing together.
