I can’t believe this is the third week of the month. Yikes! Time flies when you’re having fun.
These 10000 word-count days (which I try to do on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday) are a lot of fun. I love them and I haven’t looked forward to work this much in a long time. They really re-energized me. (Plus, I’m getting a ridiculous amount of work done and who doesn’t love that?)
I’m also really happy to have seen some success in a few other productivity elements I’ve incorporated into my business. After a couple of false-starts, I’ve finally found the right balance by incorporating elements of GTD into my business. (The false starts were because I struggled with figuring out how to make GTD work for my specific business… but I think I’ve got it figured out).
So here is what I’m working on this week:
- Writing blogs and press releases for a real estate investing client who has just published a book (which I wrote in the spring) and is now getting ready to host a real estate investing bus tour.
- Writing articles for a credit repair specialist. Her business has really blossomed in the year and a half we’ve been working together. It’s quite exciting to see!
- Writing newspaper articles for a mortgage broker.
- I also have a short-term project for someone who works on 401(k)s. They are taking their business to the next level by offering some tools and new information to attract and retain a new type of client, so I’m helping them put that information together.
- Writing my book. You know, the book I start and stop and start and stop and then shelve for months while I work on client work? That one.
- I was contacted a couple of weeks ago by a training company who needs help putting together a workshop or training course and delivering it. Since the speaking side of my business is something I’d like to grow, this was an opportunity I couldn’t pass up! So although it’s not confirmed yet, it’s something I’ve been working on… we’re still in talks to make it happen.
- As you know, I have a few brands that I own (and write for). Some of them are in good shape and others I have struggled to keep up with. So I’m writing a couple of them to maintain them, and I’m writing a couple of them to catch up. But I’m also exploring some ideas about how to make some of them a little easier to run. For example, one of them was developed without a content management system, so uploading new html is somewhat time-consuming. So I want to get a CMS system going on it to make it a bit faster and easier to manage.
- Plus, I’ve got some really cool blogs coming up that I’m excited about. I hope you like them.
