Declutter your desk, your inbox, your task list and your life
Plan out your day and stick to it (check off accomplished tasks as you go.) 3. PRIORITIZE
Rank your tasks and align them with your job demands and your goals
4. BE EFFECTIVE
It’s not a race. Don’t try to be the most efficient; try to be the most effective
Focus on the “vital few” rather than on the “vital many”
6. FINISH THE JOB
Develop your “finishing instincts” – when you get to a task complete it no matter what
7. STOP PROCRASTINATING
Most people tend to tackle easy tasks first and push out the difficult ones – don’t fall into this trap
8. STAY ORGANISED
Once you get organized, stay organized.
Guess what! I totally manifested this! About a month or so ago, I was having...reservations, about my manifesting abilities because it felt like nothing I was manifesting was actualising into my reality as quickly as I wanted it to. So I decided to ask the Universe to send me something. Not something so easy as to see it in my everyday life, like butterfly’s, but something I knew I was capable of manifesting because it had happened before...a bunch of flowers. Well, it didn’t happen within my (completely arbitrary) timeframe, and so I forgot about it and moved on, still not losing my faith in my ability to manifest. Sure enough, yesterday afternoon, this arrived on my doorstep from @jurlique Their new pH free and soap balanced botanicals hand wash and restoring hand lotion - together with a big bunch of beautiful botanical blooms. To say I’m chuffed would be an understatement. And, not to mention, I ran out of hand wash yesterday morning, so the timing is impeccable! This delivery also came only moments before I received some very unpleasant but absolutely necessary information (which I’ve since accepted and decided to work with, not against) and I wholeheartedly believe that this was the Universe encouraging me to keep going and continue having faith and to not give up, in spite of the information. The Universe really does work in some not-so-mysterious ways 💕

Quality over quantity.
Our wardrobes could have more meaning and longevity if we think less about owning the latest thing or brand and develop more of a relationship with the things we wear and collect. Something to think about when considering your next purchase.
Social Media Marketing Content Creation⠀
Focus on creating content that specifically targets your niche group you’re trying to reach:⠀
🍹Who is your ideal customer?⠀
🍸How old are they?⠀
🍷Where do they live?⠀
☕What are their average earnings?⠀
🍵What kinds of content do they want to read?⠀
🍲Which social media channels do they use?⠀
Understanding the personality, needs, and aspirations of your target audience will help you deliver more relevant content that remains consistent in style and tone of voice.
When you’ve got a branding photo shoot and don’t know which version of yourself to be 😂 casual entrepreneur, professional business woman, edgy girl boss, or Montana business casual (cause that’s something all on its own!). ⠀
I have always wanted a very cohesive and planned out closet to match my personality, but I can never decide on one! 😅 My fantasy of a capsule wardrobe is still out in the distance! ⠀
Photos with outfit choices coming soon 😉

All the birthday madness is now over — well until the weekend. I’ll be getting back to everyone today after the mountain of cleaning ❤️❤️❤️
Don't mess with the Yiota! Sweet on the outside, fierce on the inside 🔥 What the heck am I on about? Check our my stories today for a rant about misinformation in the digital sphere. Trust me - she a good rant today folks 👌
It really grinds my gears (and also gets my goat) when the world of digital marketing is turned into a one-sided sales pitch full of blatant lies 😠 It angers me even more when business owners are manipulated to sign monthly contracts for big bucks, all for a service that was never explained to them, doesn't get results, and leaves them more confused than relieved 😡
I started Ola Digital for a number of reasons, but one of the most important is because I want to run a business with INTEGRITY. And that, I do 🙏 I can back my projects, knowledge and client communication 100%. The question I ask of business owners everywhere - can you say the same for your digital marketing team, website designer, social media manager or hosting provider? 🤔
I always try and find the good in the bad, the positive when things don't go the way I planned.. In every situation there is a choice. You can choose to be pitiful or choose to make the most of it. I choose the latter. You are where you are for a reason.
OUR THIRD WINNER! ⭐️ into the blue! ⭐️ this looks gorgeous with the new adventure awaits travel journal design - the perfect place to capture all your tales of adventure! 🌍 .
With all the notebooks and journals you get to choose the foil colour too! Gold, rose gold or silver! They come with 140 thick lined lines pages too which have passed my fave gel pen test and no soak through! 💗 .
Final winner announced tomorrow! 🥁 🥁 🥁

What that means is that YOU NEED A STRUCTURE. You’ve probably heard it over and over again, but maybe you don’t know where to start. Swipe to see 4 basic things you should put in place when trying to structure your business.

Some clients require so much for a logo (colors, designs, etc.) thinking that it would make theirs unique and standout. But there's more to a logo than just colors and designs. Your logo needs to reflect your brand, and it has to appeal to your ideal customers. Your brand is how people think and feel about you. The goal is to communicate a feeling/desire/brand message to your target market rather than combine everything you like so that it only appeals to you.
Mug shot .... lol, sorry I had to. Cool things in the works for both of the Reys♡♡ in this case @charliereymusic

Just in case you missed this video. Listen to Pastor Plante's testimony, what she wanted to say after our session. She was all excited and all warmed up after our Social media live training.
Thank you so much for allowing me to add to your growth.
Link to the training is in the bio.
As promised a few days ago, here is a mug shot of me 🙈⠀
I could use this opportunity to tell you a little about me like; I don't drink coffee and I eat nutella out of the jar with a spoon and brussels sprouts will never cross my lips! However, today is 𝙒𝙊𝙍𝙇𝘿 𝙀𝙉𝙏𝙍𝙀𝙋𝙍𝙀𝙉𝙀𝙐𝙍 𝘿𝘼𝙔🥂 so I thought I'd share why I choose to be a hustler, a dreamer, to be brave, resilient, creative, often sleep deprived #bosslady who has always had a passion for doing my own thing. ⠀
I've always had big dreams, when I was five I used to walk around with a little brown cardboard suitcase telling everyone I was going to university. When I was 10 I was gifted a camera for my birthday. I took this to school and charged 50 cents to take pictures of the kids in the playground. I finished school and got myself a piece of paper saying I was qualified in public relations and communications. ⠀
I worked at a shipping agency for 6 months and then at a media monitoring company for a couple of years. Having a boss was hard. I've always found it difficult to "stay in my lane." If I can see a better way of doing things or an opportunity for change I always push for it. It was tough to have my thoughts and aspirations squashed in favour of the status quo. It was when I was told to "curb my enthusiasm" by my line manager I knew I had to make a change. ⠀
I quit my job 𝕋ℍ𝔸𝕋 𝔻𝔸𝕐 and started publishing a free monthly editorial newspaper providing small businesses with the opportunity to market their business in a story telling format rather than taking out a traditional per column inch advert. It was a hard space to be in, somewhere in between a glossy and broadsheet, but the publication has a life of it's own and flourished, that was my first taste of sweet success. ⠀
𝐓𝐇𝐀𝐍𝐊 𝐘𝐎𝐔 Mr S for telling me to curb my enthusiasm and making me make the easiest decision in my life; to be an entrepreneur! ⠀
I'd love to hear how you became a small business slayer 👊 Tell me about it in the comments!⠀

How do you charge effectively for your group programs?
So I have a question come in on "How do I get the pricing that I want for my group program and sell it without discounting and without undervaluing myself?" The number one thing that you want to think about is: Where am I putting my money stories on other people?
That's the first thing I want you to think about.
Am I using my money stories and projecting them to my potential clients?
Remember that whatever you think about money, however much you think is a lot of money or a little bit of money is all your money stories - NOT your potential clients' money stories.
So, it is important to define what your money stories are and then OWN it.
And then release it from your potential client.
I know that's a little bit of an energetic woo type of concept however, I think it's very important that we are very clear about what's our money stories versus our potential clients'. Next, own the value of your program and really get very, very good at marketing your program.
The more that you are able to define and communicate the value of the transformation that you provide and that your program provides, the easier for you to sell that program at the highest end package that you can.
You can go a lot deeper in terms of how to really get your group program to 6-figures.
Let me share with you The Ultimate Group Coaching Launch Checklist.
This is not about launching any group program but one that will generate consistent recurring revenue online, provide top notch service to your clients and give you the freedom you longed for when you began your business.
What is your perspective on money? Where does it come from? How do you actually receive it? How can you keep it? How do you spend it? How does it goes away? Why does it go away? Why do you keep getting it? Why do other people have more? How can I make it easily? And on and on.
Money is energy. Where you put your energy, money will follow! Money will continue to flow in areas where it is appreciated. It will chase down opportunities that understands its true value.
Value the opportunities money can provide versus the items it can buy! #bars
We’re back after a little social media break! It was refreshing to take a step back and work “on” Orange Monkey instead of “in” Orange Monkey 100%. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
It can be hard as business owners to get caught up in the everyday running of your business but you really do have to take the time to re-evaluate and look at those areas that are time suckers and seriously consider outsourcing. Something that takes you hours if not days will take an expert less than half the time you’ll spend on it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
For us, we’ve been spending hours doing little updates to our website but have made the decision to bite the bullet and outsource it! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What do you struggle with in your business and wish you could hand over to someone else? 🤔
I will do BIG things with my beautiful life because I am valuable, worthy and hold everything in me to achieve what I desire. .
And repeat, make plans, execute and repeat.
Tell yourself that you are capable, make your passion an obsession. .
Then watch your magnificent life grow into more than you could ever imagine ✨🙏🏼
I’m not lucky, I’m strategic.
I’m not fearless I’m HUNGRY! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Nothing told me that I could be here but me! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I was just a girl who had a non negotiable vision and was willing to trade EVERYTHING in my current life for the life I saw when I closed my eyes.
Btw, email went out at 830am and there are only 3 spots left for marketing and sales consulting at $149. DM “I’m Ready” to get the information and link to book!
Screenshot this post and make it your Tuesday #qotd 💙 There is a reason experts are expensive, they have a higher success rate and a track record of good results... ⠀
Don't back down from your rates especially when you have receipts. Continue to showcase the problem you solve along with the proof of your brand promise. Trust me those that need you and value what your offer will find you! #ceochicks
As humans we are designed to cope with what life throws us, that’s why we have a fight or flight system built into our bodies to protect us from danger and pain. You’ll of probably had an experience where something frightening or painful happened and you went numb and actually don’t remember what happened clearly. This is our bodies way of protecting us in the moment. When you really think about every day worry and fear, most of it is tied up in the moments before an event or after. We fixate on our thoughts and start to experience physical and mental symptoms of something really upsetting before it’s actually happened, this can be exactly the same reaction after an event or moment too. What’s so important to remember is that as humans we are fully equipped to deal with these things and that the time we give to our worries and fears is only extending our discomfort and pain. Try and catch yourself in these fear building moments, these catastrophes we build inside our minds and see if we can be the witness rather than the victim. It’s super challenging but once you start to become aware of your habits around worry, we can actually start to untangle them. .
Move out freely into your day - fear the fear and do it anyway 💖 .

#AD Did you know that you can curl your hair while swishing LISTERINE®?! No-hands, no problem! I can start my morning hair curling routine AND kill unwanted bacteria + plaque buildup in my mouth at the same time! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
