What are you listening to first thing in the morning? I actually love the silence—it’s great to get my mind clear before I dive into the news to keep me abreast of what’s going on in the world. But when I’m editing I absolutely love to listen to music to help pass the time. I recently discovered @arilennox + I’m in love 😍 I’m looking for something motivating to play while I edit so tell me what’s on your current playlist? #sheabutterbaby MUA: @whitneyelisebeauty

Sometimes we feel like we must have everything figured out before we take the next leap. The leap to change jobs. The leap to switch from Preview to a paid Planoly membership. The ‘leap’ to even switch coffee orders. It’s okay to leap and not have all of the details planned. Sometimes the biggest payoffs come from a leap or a jump. What is your next jump? 📸: @shannonkelly

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?
Seriously tho, what are you doing? Do you even know?
Where are you headed? This year? Next year? 5 years?
Do you know? Do your employees know? Do your friends know?
Accountability is important.
Leading with your vision is important.
They ensure the things you're working on day in, day out are in full alignment with where you want to go.
When a new venture comes your way, you'll have a clear understanding if it is a 'yes' or a 'not right now'.
This also helps your team stay aligned and ensures they only bring you ideas and projects that support the future vision of your company.
So often we spend our time working on things that ultimately don't matter. We easily get sidetracked by collaborating with a company, or working on an event, or starting a podcast when they may not actually support our end goal. If we as business owners are unsure of our company vision, you better believe our employees are confused as well!
To set them up for success and to make sure our resources are being used efficiently, we need to set clear goals and objectives.
Get into the habit of starting every day and every meeting reviewing your company vision.
How to create your 1 year and 5 year vision:
1. What are the values you want your company to uphold? How do you want people to describe you? What do you want to be known for?
2. What do you want to accomplish in 5 years? Revenue goals? How do you want to feel?
3. What needs to happen in the next year to lay the foundation for your 5 year goals?
4. Write out your vision statement: include your 1 + 5 year goals, the words that describe you and how you want to feel.
BONUS TIP What to do every day:
1. Every morning re-read your 1 year and 5 year goals.
2. Look at everything on your task list for the day to ensure it's still aligned. *What you're unable to accomplish by end of day, gets moved to the following day's list.
3. Review weekly tasks & remove anything that's no longer a priority based on workload.

Winning ideas don’t have to be complex. A lot of the time, the solution is simple and perhaps at first glance, “silly”. But don’t let that stop you if you feel passionate about your idea. Where there is a will, there is a way! 🌸
I feel a bit overwhelmed!⠀
I have to be honest I feel my head is going to explode right now because it’s so full.⠀
My head is full of all the things we have to do before we go.⠀
Plus my business and all the other things going on.⠀
It’s a very exciting time... with lots do do!⠀
I know I have to take a deep breathe and remind myself that everything will be ok. ⠀
I need to prioritize, leave space in my schedule... and have fun! 😜⠀
Do you have any other tips to give me? ⠀
