Hello gorgeous! Welcome to my blog Strategy & Soul for the Rising Entrepreneur! I’m Sarah Rose, your guide to helping you create your dream business working flexibly online, allowing you to earn what you’re worth and design a life you love!
This week I want to dive into getting organized for success, because it’s true that you have to go first, and the universe will follow. That means if you’ll start taking action now, moving in the direction of pursuing all that you want, big shifts will start to happen before your very eyes. Doors will open to you and people and opportunities will come into your life that you never dreamed possible! But it’s not going to drop into your lap unless you take some proactive steps to get the ball moving. So let’s start with some basic strategies to get you prepping for success from today forward.
Attraction Marketing 101: Clean up your social media feeds. Remove any photos or posts of you drunk, swearing, criticizing someone, anything political or controversial or negative. Make sure you have a great profile picture of just you looking into the camera, no sunglasses, no cats, dogs, kids or funky filters. It doesn’t have to be professional, but it does need to be updated and fresh.
Your cover photo can showcase your lifestyle, you doing you and what you love with whom you love. You can also create a professional looking cover in Canva (http://www.canva.com) a free drag and drop website that I use almost daily to create covers, posts, events, etc. You could add a photo of yourself and text with your four core pillars. These are the things in your life that you’re most passionate about. Maybe that’s being a mama; maybe it’s that you’re embarking on a journey of transformation either spiritually, financially or pertaining to health and wellness. Maybe it’s that you’re into fundraising or sports or you’re a travel junkie or yoga fanatic. Basically, your cover introduces you to your audience, attracting the people to your page who are gonna love your stuff and repelling the people who won’t. And that’s a good thing, it means you’ll be building your community of warrior women who are going to love your content, want to hang out in your space, and buy whatever it is that you’re selling! Get over FOMO (Fear of Missing Out) on the people who won’t want to follow you, if you’re marketing to everyone you’re diluting your message and you’ll be marketing to no one. This way you’ll nail your niche from the start (more on this to come!).
Your feed is your free tv channel, so how you portray yourself and what you’re posting about needs to flow and be in alignment so that it makes sense to your audience and who you’ll be attracting. When you show up consistently every day to post only about your four core passions, your audience won’t be able to get enough of your soul-led content!
Is this making sense so far?
Then if you haven’t already, stop what you’re doing right now, and go on Amazon to purchase a beautiful calendar that resonates with you, that you get excited every time you look at it and touch it. My favorite is the Law of Attraction planner because I can look at my month and weeks at a glance, and have plenty of space to add in my DMOs (Daily Method of Operation), plus there are so many inspiring quotes, journal prompts, intention and goal setting exercises, and of course stickers. Because secretly, who doesn’t love stickers?
Then as soon as it arrives, take the time to sit down and map out your entire year. If you have children, pull up their school calendar for this year and the next school year on Google. Go ahead and write those dates in, as well as holidays, birthdays, any travel plans you have, classes, or other work obligations and/or personal commitments. That way as you start taking action daily and your business starts to build, you don’t overbook or double book yourself; plus you’ll see how much time you really do have to invest every single day into growing your business. Make personal growth and development a part of your DMO as well, create space and time each day for meditation, listening to a podcast and/or reading something that will solidify your mindset and teach you the strategies you need to take yourself from where you are today to where you want to go tomorrow and beyond.
And yes to squeeze it all in, you may have to get up a bit earlier or stay up a bit later. This week I changed up a few habits and it’s amazing how much extra time I have in my day, just by setting my alarm 15 minutes earlier and getting straight into the shower. Before, I’d sleep until the last minute, get my daughter to school and start my morning routine when I got home. And some days I would spend in yoga clothes, pjs or my robe, no makeup, hair in a bun, and not get in the shower until like one or two in the afternoon! If you’re serious about growing into the woman who can be, do and have it all, you’re going to have to shake it up a bit and do some things differently! In becoming her, you’ve got to go ahead and do the things she would do now. Again, you go first and the Universe will follow. Sloths we are not!
