So ladies (and gentlemen, I don’t discriminate) let me tell you something, I am tired! It’s March! If you make a 90 day or quarterly plan then you are two-thirds done with your plan. Hell, we are one-sixth done with the year!  That makes me want to take a nap and a vacation but no rest for the wicked. So because time moves so fast let’s not waste any.

February 2017 Goals

Objective: Launch TheBalancedSideHustle.com and just list build and connect like crazy.

I am launching the course site on Monday 3/6 the first official day of pre-sale! So excited!

Personal Goals

  • Read one book

In my Forest Gump voice, “I was reading.” I’m actually reading 4 other books currently but have most of them on pause while I focus on my course launch but I did finish 2 books this month.

She Means Business by Carrie Green.

I loved this book, I felt so inspired and it was just what I needed to read before a launch.

Round The Way Girl by Taraji P. Henson

I love Taraji P. Henson, and I mean almost jump up and down on a couch Tom Cruise circa 2005. I had always been a fan as I grew up watching a lot of black cinema and of course, I adore her sassy character Cookie on Fox’s hit television show Empire. But after this book, I love her even more. She is educated, well-rounded, thoughtful and just really reminds me of my big sister, to be honest. It’s hilarious and I would suggest getting the Audible version so you can hear the voice she does for her late father.

  • Get back into meditating

When my anxiety reached its peak I knew I had to get back into it. It’s been great. I don’t do it every day but I have started doing it more regularly.

  • Do at least one activity a week for myself that isn’t work related.

I think all things considered I have managed to do this. Some weeks it may have been hot yoga, therapy or just watching the entire first season of the Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix in a weekend.

  • Do my gratitude/goal journal at least 5 days a week if not 7.

I love this. I normally do it right after I get out of the shower. A time when my mind isn’t as clouded and I can just reflect on the day and myself for a few moments.

  • Party like it’s 1999 for my grandpa’s 85th! I love that guy. Here is a picture for the hell of it.

It was so nice to see the family. I think he had a great time.

Grandparent Birthday Part

Blog and Freelance Goals

Yes! Right now I am in the section of the course all about launching, so I’m pretty excited.

  • Have 555 Facebook page likes

545 Whomp whomp. I haven’t been as active on Facebook as I’d like. Hopefully next month.

  • Have 3200 Twitter Followers

3275! Yay!

  • Have 1125 Instagram Followers

1145! I think a part of this is the Imperfect Boss campaign I participated with on Instagram. 

  • Have 990 Pinterest Followers

1145! Thank you, BoardBooster.

  • Create at least one new Resource for my Resource Library

I didn’t publish a new resource but I created a new email course. You can find it here.

  • Post at least 4 times this month

February 2017 Goals

The Distraction Keeping You From Your Dreams

An Open Letter to The Woman Who Prayed For Me

Yes, You Need a Business Plan

  • Spend at least 10 minutes a day engaging on each of the above social media sites. That means repinning, responding to tweets of others or seeing what their links are, etc.

Yes and no. I have been in heavy focus mode and have been trying to stay away from unnecessary distractions and let’s be honest most of the time that is social media. I did manage to post consistently on all of them thanks to Buffer and BoardBooster

  • Do at least 2 webinars

I did not get to host any webinars this month. I still made connections and feel like I helped people and that really is my ultimate goal.

  • Reach out to affiliates

Yes! Not as many as I would like but the month is young!

  • Do auto versions on relevant posts. I did my first audio take on a blog post in January. I have been wanting to do this for a while and plan to do it for posts in certain categories.

I did audio for the 2 posts I felt needed it and to be honest, I really do like it. I recently had someone asked if I had a podcast and now I am seriously considering making the audio files available on podcasting sites. I know that I’d need to clean them up a bit and do intros and stuff, so it would be down the line.

Health and Fitness

  • Make meals at home 80% of the time or only eat out 4 times of the week.

Yes! Although I have found a new favorite healthy fast food option for the days I didn’t make my lunch.

  • Go to a gym class at least 3 times a week.

I did better this month. I didn’t get to 3 times but did manage to do twice a week.

  • Lose 5 pounds more. 

Done! I’ve officially lost 20 pounds and want to lose at least 10 more. I have worked hard. I’ve watched my friends eat cheese sticks, while I’ve eaten an apple and protein shake. I haven’t been suffering but I have been being more conscious. Not only is my weight down but so is my blood pressure.
