Success Despite Distraction | Tips and Tools for the Entrepreneur

Success Despite Distraction | Tips & Tools for the Entrepreneur While we’re currently in the thick of our #21DayJournaling Challenge here at the Cowork Evergreen sister group, Live Your Magical Life, there is more to living your magical life than your journaling. Like a lovely sparkly diamond, there are many sides, many facets to consider.   I met with an entrepreneur friend (friendpreneur!) today and we both talked about a challenge that’s been getting in the way lately.    Distraction. We’ve both been in a space of distraction, where the day gets away and actions become more reactive and less intentional. The plans and goals and hopes for the day, the week, slip away and it can feel frustrating and a feeling of defeat to lose momentum.   I think there is a natural up and down cycle with business, but the important thing is to be aware of this and come back to both the big picture and checking in with where you are – head & heart.   In terms of a practical tool, practical technique for getting back on track, in spite of distraction, I recommend two steps:   1. Revisit your big goals for the year as a starting point. Then go through these questions: What are your biggest goals for the year? Do they still resonate, or do you need to adjust? How do those goals break down for the next 3 mos.? What do you need to do every week? What are the daily activities that will build up to accomplishing that yearly goal?   2. Time blocking. Are you familiar with this concept? Basically,...

The Making of a Digital Product | Online Entrepreneurs in Evergreen, Colorado

The Making of a Digital Product Guest post by Cowork Evergreen member, Laura Brandenburg In June of 2015, I took a first step toward a calling to help mom-entrepreneuers, a calling that I’d been ignoring for nearly two years. I hosted my first ever Digital Product Workshop here at Cowork Evergreen. Thanks to promotion through Cowork and a few of my own contacts who wanted to get a behind-the-scenes view into what I was up to, the workshop was attended by 5 wonderful women. In September we hosted take 2 and December take 3. The in-person workshop was and continues to be an immensely powerful experience for me. To connect with other women, have the opportunity to share my business journey, and empower them to make more profitable, flexible choices inside their businesses hits me deep down inside. With the success of the in-person workshops, I kept receiving requests to make it virtual. And I didn’t know how or when I would make this happen. The workshop was an expression of a calling, not a business model. Then in November of 2015, I found myself still talking about these ideas. I had started a Momstyle Your Business Facebook group.  The creative spirits and business goals of the 40+ empowered women there nourish and energize me. Through the group, I continued to make connections with women not located anywhere near Evergreen, Colorado. And I’m loving every minute of it. So I decided that yes, there would be a virtual edition of the Digital Product Workshop. The virtual version started to take shape as an outline. Then I carved out bits...
