Major Life and Business wins for September 2020:

  • Creatives Do Money is ticking along! 6 episodes up, and 16 five star reviews so far!
  • Saved a total of $1,691 (22% of my total net income)

Goals + Intentions for September 2020 were:

  • Create a strong system and structure for publishing Creatives Do Money podcast
  • Balancing massage work and PTM work and staying healthy and happy
  • 100 people on my email list
  • Regular content going out on Instagram / FB
  • 2 Blog posts up
  • 1 general newsletter sent out
  • 2 summary newsletters out for Plum Tree Community

  • Client work complete, clients delighted and surprised

Skills Im working on:

  • Moving past limiting thoughts and beliefs with Thought Work
  • Letting go of perfectionism.
  • Not getting high on approval and positive feedback.  My job is to continue moving forward with creating value for my people: creative solopreneurs who want to learn to master their money and build the financial stability that fuels their creative future.  

What I got done in September 2020:

Where I was in the weeds:

  • Maintaining my momentum with Plum Tree Money while returning three days a week to my massage practice.
  • I have lots to learn to make the most of the Mighty Networks platform (that’s my referral link).
  • Struggling to find the right approach to sending out my newsletter. I want it to be super helpful and stay in touch, but haven’t had the bandwidth with everything else going on.

Current biggest challenge:

Juggling priorities.
Getting to the important rather than urgent tasks.
