Feeling like you don’t know what to do each day for your business? I wrote this training for my personal team and I wanted to share it with you boss ladies. I know it can feel like you are working and spinning your wheels and your business may not seem like it is going anywhere. I encourage you to get intentional with each day and the tasks you dedicate to your business. This is a great practice for you mamas who work your side hustle alongside a full time job. Constantly posting on social media can be draining and trick you into thinking that you are working when you are really not. There is no way around this: you have to get your product and your fabulous self in front of people. That is what building a business is about, serving others.
I created a little plan for you, for the week. You don’t have to follow it exactly and you don’t need to beat yourself up if you don’t get to all the tasks I outlined. It is simply a guideline. What you do consistently in your business is what will generate results. This is absolutely an efforts in, results out business. You can have the success you want, all you have to do is put for the effort. Get honest with yourself about what you are really doing each week and track your results.
I created a little printable calendar for you to put by your computer or in your work space. Fill it out and watch how your relationships, sales and business grow. Grab the printable at the end of the post and tag me on instagram #luckyandlovely and #lovelybiztips so I can see how you use it.
