What are your most important actions for each day?

I am working my way through a couple of challenges. One of them is the 15 Day Blog Challenge. It’s not your usual “just write a post today” challenges. Natalie Sisson gives specific steps for each day that are not only getting me to write a blog post, but are also giving specific steps to building the whole business.

Today’s challenge was on MIA, Most Important Actions. The point was to ask yourself what is the number one most important thing you can do to for your business or your life each week and make that the first item on your list of to-do’s for your work day or any day.

My mind instantly bounced all over this client’s website, that client’s telesummit, and more. BUT it was for MY business…so at this point that is probably just continuing to develop this habit of writing and communicating with my clients. That doesn’t take an hour a day, so I feel like I should add a couple extra items to fill in that hour. So here goes…

My MIA for this week is to spend one hour each morning writing on my blog, working on my newsletter, and/or updating items on my website.

That means a blog post every single day. One newsletter a week. And updates to my website, whether it be contemplating my overall design changes or making changes to copy and adding services.

What is your MIA for today or this week or this month? It’s a vitally important step to getting yourself and/or your business organized. Leave a comment below.

I also challenge you to jump into this 15 day challenge, even if you are doing another challenge as well. We are just a few days into it and there is plenty of time for you to catch up! Even if you take it day by day, you will only benefit yourself and your business by taking on a few of these daily steps. Click here to learn more.


October Blog Challenge — Here I go!

I am so bad. I tell my clients how important it is to have their website in tiptop shape and to be blogging regularly, but I don’t do it myself. My website is in a constant state of upheaval, because I’m always deciding to redesign it. My blog…ha…I don’t think I’ve posted a darn thing on it in ages. But hey, it goes way back! At least my original blog did. I have moved my posts around a bit from Blogger to another website and eventually to here. I’m still not entirely sure that this is where it will stay. Trying to really wrap my head around all of that.

Today is October 6 and I’m doing day 1. Oops. Ah well, I’ve been sick this past week and trying to maintain things for others.

But here we go. I started this blog years ago just to share life. Then it morphed into being business related. And now it’s a little bit of both. I hope to share the great and not-so-great moments of my life, show you how you too can become a work at home mom (WAHM), and maybe even teach you how to kick up your marketing and WordPress skills along the way.
