Happy Easter everyone – hope you have had a great weekend celebrating and enjoying your Bank Holiday Monday! It’s April! Yay, I love this time of year! A new season, the start of wedding season for me and just all round good vibes as the cold winter months start to slowly disappear. I also hear we are meant to be having some amazing weather this month….which makes me super happy!!
I have been having big brainstorms and ideas about how I can really throw myself into a strong blogging routine, and make this a super useful and enjoyable place for you. Having a big session where you map everything out can really help and also uncover new ideas, explore opportunities and see where you can take things. I had a lightbulb moment, the other day, and from this has grown a new idea, well one that has been lingering in my mind from sometime, but standard…been too scared to do it….but mapping it out this time, it seems so in line with what my overall purpose is with this space, that I am rolling with it – more t come on this soon, but I am buzzing and I know you will love it too!
So as this new section of the blog begins to develop, I would love to start a conversation with you about the monthly goals you set yourself – maybe we can hold each other accountable? I find it super helpful to write out what needs to be done this month and my top priorities, and this helps me keep on track for what needs to be done.
*This month is the start of wedding season, so things will be pretty busy in terms of travelling, shooting and editing for the next couple of weeks. I then have a couple weeks break before May’s weddings. I try and make sure my calendar is well setup that I don’t burn out. For me it is super important that I am fully charged and ready to show up for every single one of my clients, energised and ready to document their day – so managing my calendar is a big priority. So I’ll be a busy one over the coming weeks!
*Later in the month, I have scheduled in a mini mastermind, work marathon date set with some of my business besties. We completely get each other, want to help uplevel each others businesses, push each other out of our comfort zones, help with areas we are struggling with – and also let’s be honest have a good ol’ catch up! I am so excited about getting together with them, and have some clear goals I have set out to achieve!
*So this one is one from last month….To get all the wedding planning finished! Not going to lie, I have been burying my head in the sand the last month. We are getting married in September, I am so nervous, and we have so much to do still but just not setting the time out to get things sorted – this is a MUST do for this month!
*Sort out my social media and Instagram game! Running a business definitely comes with its challenges, wearing mutliple hats as a one women band can be tough – when you the photographer, editor, administrator, marketer, accountant, customer liaison, blogger, social media manager, project manager – it becomes a big task lit, daily, weekly, monthly! The area I still haven’t nailed with consistency is my social media – which has it’s challenge anyway as I run two account on both Facebook, Instagram for two businesses! So basically this month, I need to nail down my strategy, how what and when!
I would love to know what you want to achieve this month! Comment below and share 🙂
Love, Charlotte x
