Two Paths towards Financial Independence

Freedom. That’s one of the keywords I think about in business, but specifically -> financial independence.

If you’ve never heard of FIRE in the secret freedom seekers community, it stands for “financially independent, retired early.” And although many people want to retire, most of us are just happy with financial independence in our personal finance journey.

How to Maximize an Appointment Scheduler

I can only speak for myself, but I think the invention of appointment scheduling software is one of the best tools created on the market. And the small amount you might pay per month made it one of the best investments I made early on in my business.

You see, early in my business, I was working for a combination of 3 different jobs. and I don’t mean clients, I mean JOBS. And no - my schedule each week varied due to the nature of work I was doing! Some weeks had a flow and other weeks had long periods of time without WIFI to work on pretty blooms. It also meant I couldn’t schedule appointments (even for an hour) on these days because I was under a major time crunch!

How to Tackle the Daily Tasks: The Short List

I like the number "3" in my daily life. It's the trifecta of awesomeness, not too much and not too little. So, I create a short list each day to work on the core tasks in my business.

I'm all about bridging efficiency into my life, and setting realistic expectations for myself that are achievable. I want to leave my business days proud of the job I accomplished, and sometimes just saying I can shut down the computer when I finish my tasks and play outside is a worthwhile investment.
