Happy new tax year! And now begins the mad panic to get the last 12 months of receipts and invoices in a vaguely organised pile…
Goals for April
Secure One New Client – I don’t want to count my chickens, but I’ve spoken to a couple of people who will hopefully be requiring my services over the coming weeks… Fingers crossed!
Post Daily on the Blog – So far, so good… Last week I published 19 posts, so hopefully I’m getting back into the swing of things! My only problem is that once a week I usually have a long train journey where I will sit down and plan my blog for the week… with the Easter bank holiday, that didn’t happen this week so I’m sort of flying blind.
Sort the Bedroom Once & For All – Er… work in progress!
Last Week’s Weekly Goals
Send At Least One Pitch Email – Nailed it! In fact, I sent about 3!
Post Daily on the Blog – Also nailed.
Take Everything to the Charity Shop – Nope.I think the problem is that the offending items are in my bedroom and not loitering by the front door. Perhaps I need to move them so that I’m tripping over them every time I go out… .
This week’s goals
Send At Least One Pitch Email – Previously if I’ve sent out a pitch and got a reply I’ve sort of stopped bothering to send more, thinking “well, my goal was one new client, and this guy seems interested…” sometimes this pays off, sometimes not. And really, I’d rather end the month with two new clients than one – so onwards with the pitch emails.
Work on Blog Content – Because I missed my planning train journey this week I feel like I need to put more effort into making sure I’ve thought about what I’m going to post, and planned ahead.
Get to the Charity Shop – Seriously, I can see the thing from my front door – I need to just find five minutes to go down there!
