[New Series] Monday Motivation for Creative Business Owners


Monday MotivationWoo hoo, it’s Monday!

Are you celebrating that it’s Monday? Excited to get to your work space today?

Do you know exactly what you need to do this week to grow your creative business?

I love Mondays! They always feel like an adventure; the chance for a fresh start.

I know not everyone feels that way and I am on a mission to change that.

Beginning today, start your Monday with a motivational mantra and some short productivity tips to get you going in the right direction.

Here are 3 simple Monday productivity tips. My week goes way better when I do these 3 things:

  1. Set an intention. I love using mantras like the one above to help me stay focused and positive. I write it in my journal, share it on social media, write it on a post it note and put it on my bathroom mirror so that I can read it out loud each morning.
  2. Set a goal. This might be about how I want to feel or what I want to accomplish in terms of sales or growth in my business.
  3. Take time to plan. What needs to get done by when? When I say planning, I don’t mean creating a massive to do list but rather a curated short list of my most important tasks for each day. These tasks will help me to reach my goal from step 2.

I also know that I work best when I have clear accountability in place. That’s not always easy when you work at home alone. It can be easy to get lost and feel isolated.

Stop trying to do this alone! We have created a new free Facebook group Productivity for Creative Business Owners to offer a safe space to:

a. Connect with a community of creatives who think like you do
b. Ask for Accountability and Support
c. Get Ideas and Inspiration for Increasing Productivity

I believe that you can move mountains, and it will go a lot faster when you have the strength of a tribe behind you. Connect with your tribe now.
