How To: Keep A Routine When You’re Self Employed.

Keeping a routine is a DAILY struggle, right?At least it is for me.

Being self employed affords you SO much freedom. Which can be a HUGE blessing or a curse… Just depending on the type of person you are.

I tend to be the type of person that thrives on a rigid schedule and a hefty to do list that SOMEONE ELSE has created for me 😅

Luckily, I’ve found some things that really help me stay on task and on schedule.

Schedule yourself.

When you’re self employed means you get to CHOOSE your schedule. Which totally rocks.

If you really want to make an income as a self employed person, I recommend actually scheduling yourself each week. Decide when you’re on the clock and when you’re off.

I like to break down my stuff into block scheduling.

Kind of like this:


Make sure to give yourself time to be a human. It’s easy to over schedule and think you’ll get more done but, that’s just not the case.

Make sure your life has balance. I’m still figuring that out 🤷

Keep a morning routine.

When you work a regular day job, you usually have a morning routine, right? Something that prepares you for the day ahead.

It should only make sense to have a similar routine if you’re self employed.

Do something that wakes you up. (Like exercise)

Drink water.

Make yourself breakfast.


Make a day plan.

A morning routine sets the tone for your day. It helps to have an awesome one!

Have Core Activities

What are Core Activities?

Basically, they’re activities that you do EVERY day that help you stay on target.

Here’s a rocking post about how to apply it to your business:

Some of my core activities include:

Taking our puppy out first thing

My Morning Protein shake.

Making a to-do list.

Making my bed.

Schedule Instagram posts.

Etc. Etc. 😊

Having core activities will help you keep focused on your routine and get you back on track if you fall off the wagon.


Routine = More success!

Hopefully this post will help you achieve that.

How to: Make Your Brand Stand Out

I LOVE talking about branding. So this week we’re going to give some helpful tips about making your Brand STAND OUT.

Are you a Brand or a Business?

You answered “both”, right? Hopefully you did… but I’m going to let you in on a little secret. Building your Brand is more important than building your business. WHATTT

More on that (here) (Plus a blog post coming soon!)

That’s why I’m here to help you figure out how to make YOUR BRAND stand out. So lets get started:


First things first, you should probably know who you are. Do you sell ice cream OR do you sell handmade ice cream that comes in unique, bold and delicious flavors.


What do you do? How do you do it? WHY do you do it?

For Example:

Let’s say you’re a coach.

  • What kind of coach?
  • Why are you a coach?
  • What do you love about being a coach?
  • How can you help your clients?

These are all things that help you define who you are as a brand.

Make sure YOU are clear in every aspect of this. When you get clear, your audience will be able to see that and it’ll do wonders for your trust relationship.

One of my favorite brands in the whole world is The Alison Show. She also happens to be AMAZING at helping others build brands.

Follow this amazing lady for all the tips and tricks.

What’s the BIG idea?

Why did you start your business/brand in the first place?

As a brand, it’s a good idea to have a “BIG IDEA”. Meaning you need to have something that your audience will always associate you with.

Let’s take The Bucket List Family as an example:

Anyone who has been following their brand KNOWS that they’re a family of travelers who give back everywhere they go & whatever they promote centers around those key concepts: Family, Travel and Service.

Their audience KNOWS what they’re all about, which makes it easier for them to make the decision to follow their brand.

So what are the key concepts to your brand? Do you sell clothes that promote self love? Are you a coach that wants to change the world and you’re going to take your audience with you?


INSPIRE YOUR AUDIENCE and be SO clear on what the keys to your brand are. You will be surprised at the tribe you start to build.

How do you compare to other Brands?

What sets you apart from the rest of the businesses?


Sure you might have an amazing product, or service or you might be offering something that really hasn’t been offered before… regardless of that, people are more likely to buy something if they LIKE the person promoting it!

In no way does that mean you shouldn’t highlight the obvious things that set you apart from competition. It just means you also need to give your brand some personality.

Take Miss Jordan for example:

I started following her for her content. I stayed because she is SO relate-able, her daily mom struggles, her love of Costco, her affinity for all the sparkly things, I feel like her and I would be BFF’s in real life.

SO create something or someone for your audience to relate to. Something for them to connect with and something they can associate you with. It’ll help you stick around in their brain for a much longer time.
