June in Review: Self-care

So yesterday I shared with you some of the achievements in my biz and today, I wanted to share with you some of my more personal achievements. This year, I am trying to focus on taking better care of myself. This can seem a little boring on a daily basis but the goal is to feel better. So here are some of the things I am celebrating for June:

💖 Taking a walk every day - even if it is just 10 minutes because I am busy but also, some days, we also got 2 walks in (I typically go with my hubby and our doggies)

💖 I am not really into cooking dinner and I love meal food boxes that you just have to follow a recipe to make dinner. I have also been getting my boys involved.

💖 My sleep is a bit of a struggle so this month, I went back to my naturopath,, Kat from @invigorate_naturopathy for some herbs - this are real self-care because you can't just take them when you feel like it - you have to take them daily and I am already seeing the results.

💖 Water is something we all know we need lots of but it can be easy to neglect. As my throat still has this funny tickle (thanks COVID) I am really trying to ensure I am properly hydrated.

💖 Being busy can mean you try to do too much. This month, my fabulous new VA, Clare from @penandpapergirl_wa has really done some heavy lifting for the business. I have also been working with Marianne from @thriveadminservices who has brought her Microsoft genius to a big client project.

💖 Friday flex day resumed. This doesn't mean I cannot work but it means I don't have to. This month, I enjoyed a cowrking day with some friends, took a facial, got my hair done, and went for a photo shoot.

💖 And finally, I also want to try new things so this month I did a painting class, went to a new networking group, made time for my fave local coffee morning twice!

I have some fun things planned for June as well as some important holidays in the diary. So..share..what one thing have you done in the last month that has put the focus on YOU?

Episode 15: Marianne Tansley talking all things Microsoft

Marianne is the founder of Thrive Admin Services, she has over 20 years' experience in corporate admin and document formatting. When it comes to all things systems, documents, and formatting, if Marianne doesn’t know it then it’s not worth knowing. She’s an absolute expert, or a rare unicorn as Sarah likes to call her.

They chat about Marianne’s love for working inside Microsoft 365 and finding better ways to work that fit with your values and personal brand.

It's fascinating to hear her insights into the apps you think you need when you start out in business and overlook the ones you may already be paying for. Microsoft really has a lot to offer, and the advantage of using one system means less passwords… bonus!

This is a brilliant episode if you’re looking to streamline your business, save some dollars, and want to better understand what Microsoft has to offer as an alternative to other platforms out there. To find out more about Marianne and the “done for you” services she talks about in this episode, head to her website (link below). Don’t forget to grab your FREE copy of 50 Secret Hacks for Microsoft 365 while you're there.

I hope you enjoy listening to this episode.

Hey there, I am wondering, how has your 2022 gone so far? Are you feeling a bit like the wheels fell off somewhere along the way? I know for some of my coaching clients, 2022 has just felt more hard after struggling through the uncertainty of the last 2+ years. Firstly, if this is you -know you are not alone. I would say that a common theme with my coaching clients is this sense of uncertainty mixed with overwhelm. It surely has been a tough time to be an entrepreneur.

As we marvel at where on earth the year has gone and wonder what the rest of 2022 has in store, I would love to help out. These things I know to be true...

😞I know that you feel the pressure to create content for your socials.

😑 I know that this can feel like a huge big albatross around your neck.

😳 I know that spending time on socials can magnify this and can make you feel even more inadequate.

But...

I also know there is a better way. I would love to help lighten your load, give you confidence when it comes to posting and allow you to show up more consistently.

Sound good?

Join me live for my 2-hour (2nd half) 2022 content planning masterclass. It is just $29 and I promise, will be the best investment you make this year. Join me live this coming Tuesday 28th June from 1pm - 3pm and if you can't attend live, you will be sent the recording.

Episode 14: Social Media Management with Gemma Wilson

Tune in to hear Gemma share some gems about how she operates as a social media manager.

She starts by telling us about her business journey, and how she started out as a Virtual Assistant (VA) 3 years ago, before quickly finding her passion for social media, now offering a full suite of social media management.

Not only does Gemma offer content and image creation. She also includes social media post scheduling on Facebook and Instagram, as well as engaging with your audience on your behalf. How cool!

She tells us how she can uniquely tailor her services to meet clients’ needs. She takes the time to get to know your business as if it were her own, walking you through the process of what it looks like to work with her for a smooth transition. Imagine the day… one minute you’re spending your income-generating time creating your own social media posts, and the next you’re in Gemma’s capable hands. She openly explains it takes a little time from initially connecting but once information has been shared it’s a breeze, and you can get back to doing what you do best.

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to work with a social media manager, this episode is for you.

I hope you enjoy listening to this episode.
