I learned so much in 2018 about myself and how I want to do business.
One thing that I am certain of is that Q+A is one of my absolute favorite ways to serve my community! When I am asked a question, It allows me to tap into my intuitive gifts and fully be connected to my calling.
In coming to this realization, I want to bring weekly clarity to you!
This week’s blog is #AskAmber!
As I am inspired, I will share the questions that come to me and the inspirational insight that comes from the Universe!
This week’s question: “What should I be spending my time on each day?”
I get this most often from newer entrepreneurs who feel a little lost in what to do but know they need to be taking action. I took some time and thought back to my first year in business, and what I spent time on that was productive. I came up with 7 that every new entrepreneur, (and even us veterans), should have on their to-do list.
Here are my “Top 7 Daily To-Dos.”
Remember, this is based on what I do, what others that are successful do, and what the Universe suggested… But you get to pick what ones feel good for you!
- Start your day with mindcare.
This is normally referenced as mindset. I personally am just over that word. Because what I really feel we are all really searching for is mind power, mind control and to be #MINDSTRONG.
Mental clarity, focus, and insight are all key to daily success and getting the results you want. Mindset is not just a journaling routine. Mindcare is nurturing and nourishing your mind with positive thoughts and reinforcements! This is a huge topic all in itself, one I am going to be talking more about in the days to come, but if for right now you’re not sure how to get control of your thoughts, or what a mindset practice even includes, no worries, I’ve got you!
Click here – for my Mindcare Mandala, a super cool graph I designed for you to get clear on what to do each time your mind is bringing you down. You can use a pendulum with it, roll a dice on it, or just intuitively be guided to one of the triangles. Let me know if you have questions or comments on this!
- Review the to-do!
When you know what you are going into, it is much easier to be prepared! Take a peek at your calendar as often as possible so there are no surprises. I like to check it at night, and a few times throughout the day. Working on multiple calendars? That can be tricky!
If you are finding it more difficult to manage multiple calendars (ie. paper, digital, multiple systems and planners), it might be time to go – ASAP- as simple as possible!
I only use Acuity for scheduling, time management,etc.. You can check it out here!
I also really love lists! It is such a good feeling to check items off! But having a massive list(s) can feel overwhelming. And overwhelm typically happens when we aren’t clear on where to start.
Instead, try putting everything on one master list, and pulling 3-5 things (no more than a post-it note) and having that be your daily list. It is so much more manageable and your confidence in yourself soars, knowing you got it all accomplished!
I update my master to-do list once a week, making sure to always put the items that didn’t get done the week before at the top.
- One hour only of administrative stuff –
Get it all cleaned up in one power hour!
Go through emails, desk, private messages, book your personal appointments, follow-up, research… Make this your time to get shit done! These tasks tend to pull us in off and on throughout the day distracting us from doing the deeper work that matters!
Batching, in my experience, is best!
Procrastinating a certain task, call or action? Make it happen in this hour, and your mind and energy will thank you for it all day long!
- Create content –
I don’t think entrepreneurs realize how much creative writing and content there is in having a business! Each day, when the idea and energy is there, write your heart out!
Or video something to share with the world about you and/or your business.
The more consistent you put out content, the more that people will remember your name and will think of your services! Don’t overthink it!
Creative writing and content is a huge piece of having a service-based business. Less is not more when it comes to you sharing your message in an aligned way!
- Make a sales invitation!
Think of it this way- if you don’t ask, they cannot say yes! Making sales offers does not make you pushy! It allows you to serve “her”. On the other side of the sale is where the transformation and magic happen! When you sell because you truly want to serve, you can’t do it wrong!
Serve and Sell, Sister!
- Review your inspired marketing plan.
You need a strategy to bring that big dream to life!
That course, program, package, whatever you have been working on – an IMP will get it #SOULD out! Marketing is truly relationship building with your soul clients.
And there are lots of ways and lots of shiny objects out there that can get you confused and distracted.
If you have been feeling like you are ready for some marketing strategy with soul, why not book a call with me and let’s see what kind of inspired marketing strategy we can come up with for you!
- Is your check “energy” light on?
All throughout your day, ask yourself and feel into yourself – your energy – Are things in flow? What’s your overall light level? Are you tired? Bored? All of these tell you if you are heading in the right direction! Your energy is always the sign you are looking for! Your emotions are what should be leading the way. And remember, most importantly – when you look at your to-do list, you want it to feel like a can’t wait to do list! When you let your soulfire lead, there’s no doubting you are on the right path and you will be fired up to get into action!
So tell me, what do you think?
