September was a crazy busy month! Maybe in 2018, I'll start adding some financial & client breakdowns. You know how I always say "what you do now impacts your business in 3 months", well I invested in a 6 month marketing plan (since I ask others to invest in me, I figured I needed to do the same) and the end of August, I started seeing the results big time, as in sending out 4 new invoices. That was a Thursday and the Monday before, I wrote in my journal "Lord, I will trust you with the finances of my business" and knew I needed to truly trust Him and keep working the plan. September was my biggest month, and October is slowing down a bit, but it is still rocking and rolling! As my old boss and co-workers used to say "it works if you work it!"
I got most of my client gifts sent out last month! This definitely needed to be updated in the "systems" section below and I feel good that moving forward, clients will get their gifts in a more timely manner!
One of the courses had to do with systems - yepp, I made that goal fit into every category haha! I've still got some work to do finishing this one up, but so far so good. The other course I decided my assistant needed to do too, so I've got to send that to her. I'd give myself .75 check out of 2.
Still in progress. Let's say 5 out of 10.
Blog & Video
I missed one week, so 3/4 isn't too shabby!!
This would be a big ol' goose egg! Zip, Zilch, Nada.
Social Media Scheduling
I have 13 little check marks here. The first full weeks didn't go so hot, but I got back on track with scheduling. The other misses were on the weekends, which I'm kinda okay with!
Social Media Boundaries & Engagement
So my goal was 3x a day - morning, noon, and night - which is very hard to actually track unless I created 3 check boxes a day. Which I was not going to do. The key here was to be more aware of my social media usage and I think I've done a pretty great job.
October will forever be one of my most favorite months! I love the crispness and the fact that it starts the holiday season! I planned out this month LIVE over on Facebook.
Host 21 Day Challenge
I am so excited to be bringing this challenge to you! It will start on Thursday, October 5th and run through the 25th (yes that includes weekends!) with a giveaway for the winner of the challenge. The purpose of this challenge will be to get us in the habit of working ON our own business for 1 hour every morning as part of a morning routine for you. There will be a private Facebook group with videos and prompts for each day. Sign up here.
Plan October Content & Execute/Schedule
This includes the challenge, blog posts, videos, Briefs, and social media. Every single little piece of the business. I want to be ahead of the curve! And speaking of being ahead....
Plan November Content
Since the goal is to be ahead, and I've got some traveling on the books (hello, Barcelona!), I want to start working towards planning out the rest of the year. Coming up with content themes can be a bit tricky for me sometimes, but if I start now, hopefully I won't fall behind.
These are self-explanatory and will help me get ahead in the long term.

I sent it on Monday this week, and really like the way that felt. So I'm going to try to keep that up.
