You Got This: How to Get Out of a Slump

This was originally published in 2016 but it’s so popular that I’ve updated it with some new tips for you all! 🙌

I’m sure I’m not the only one that has phases of being unproductive with no motivation to work.

When you’re ticking things off your to-do list, it feels great - you’re working to the best of your ability, you’re helping your clients or customers, and you’re generally getting shit done.

On the other hand, when you’re feeling a little down about your business, it can have a huge effect on your productivity. It sucks. If I get into a work slump, you’ll find me on the sofa, snuggling the doggo, and playing Dead By Daylight 🎮

I’ve been there before, and I’m sure I’ll be there again, but I always find my way out of it!

Whether it’s business or personal, these tips and tricks will help you beat your blues, find your motivation and get back onto the right track! You'll also be able to grab my free Goal Getter Goodies bundle to help you stay focused when you're out of your slump! 💕 

3 Ways to Plan for Profit in 2019

3 Ways to Plan for Profit in 2019

Generating consistent income is a common goal for online business owners. It doesn’t just mean a constant stream of money (though that IS nice); it also means confidence in knowing what your monthly paycheque could be and feeling secure in your business.

In the world of entrepreneurship, we are often bombarded with phrases like:

  • “10x your income”

  • “double your revenue”

  • “increase your passive income”

  • “make 6-figure launches”

and, whilst monetary success is amazing, it can be really tough to be surrounded by talk like this when you’re a) just starting out or b) having a slow month with your business.

I’m here to tell you that it’s healthy to have some kind of income goal for your business but you don’t NEED to be making 6 or 7 figures a year or quadrupling your revenue as long as you have a strategic profit plan in place 💰

It can be difficult to know where to start with planning for profit, but I’m here to help you out! It’s about striking the balance between big hairy income goals and not selling yourself short with unrealistically low goals. How far into the year do you plan? And how do you make those plans actionable so that you can work towards your income goal week after week?

I’ve put this guide together to help you create your annual profit plan that is built on what’s currently working for your business to help you achieve those income goals!

This blog post talks you through:

  • 📈 how to analyse your current income

  • 🙌 how to set goals for your business to make sure you stay on track (and why they’re so important)

  • 🖥my favourite resources for drawing up a profit plan

I’m so excited to delve deep into this topic with you - and to give you access to my free Goal Getter Goodies bundle!

7 Ways To Practice Self-Care + Avoid Burnout As An Entrepreneur

7 Ways To Practice Self-Care + Avoid Burnout As An Entrepreneur

Pre-S: This is a guest post by the lovely Jessica Watters of Designed By Jess!

Let me be straight here - I really enjoy my work, and I want to be able to run a successful business. However as a psychologist I know that in order to do that, it is essential that I look after myself. Not only is self care super important for our mood and psychological wellbeing, it also plays a really key role in our physical health. If we feel in a slump, feel anxious or depressed, or get physically sick, how can we possibly run a successful business? Stress, anxiety and being overworked leads to burnout and exhaustion, and so to combat this, and run a successful and thriving business, it is crucial that we practice self care.

Self care comes in many forms, it doesn’t have to just mean having a hot bath and trying to relax (although this can be awesome!). This article will highlight 7 ideas to increase self care that you may not have thought of :)
