Hi, my lovelies! I’m honored you are here today! I want to do a brief check in for those of you who are following along with the New You in 31 Days Challenge. Even if you haven’t visited every day, I’d love to hear about your goals, progress, setbacks, and future aspirations. I will be personally contacting each of you who have commented on any of the posts in the challenge, so be looking for an email from me.
My stats for Days 1 – 15 of the challenge:Goal #1: Writing, publishing a post once a day for the 31 day period. Challenges: Time management, getting them done early in the day. Progress: I’ve done every day except for March 5th and 6th when I was travelling. Self-Reward: Since I’ve made it halfway with great progress, I’m going to treat myself to a new pair of earrings. Etsy, here I come! The Payoff: Better website traffic, new followers, new business and personal contacts. Getting consistent with posting again. Goal #2: Comment or interact with other women every day. Challenges: Time, having focused attention Progress: I have communicated with at least one other blogger or business owner for nearly every day so far. I even had a nice long talk with a woman I met while travelling. Self-Reward: Start reading a novel just for fun. The Payoff: New business contacts, credibility among peers, opportunities for networking further. Goal #3: Make a video blog. (Continued goal: make one a week) Challenges: Confidence, time, setting it up, editing Progress: I did it! I created my very first video blog and posted it to YouTube and the website! Self-Reward: A family pizza night! (Did it last night!) The Payoff: Greater visibility, more traffic, greater self-confidence, overcoming my fear
