Monday Mission: Micro-Tasking & Focus!


Staying focused can be one of the hardest things to do when you work online. You know what you need to do, you have tons of ideas to work with, or several projects in the works, but there's a constant stream of distractions and endless ways to procrastinate... enticing you to jump from one thing to another all day, until you reach the end of the day with NOTHING on your priority task list actually DONE.

* Those things on your "priority task list" should all be business-building actions, or "money tasks" as I like to call them. πŸ˜‰

Productivity Staying Focused


Monday Mission:
Micro-Tasking (Single Task Focus!)


1. Know your objective and your priorities

When you know exactly what you want to accomplish, you can easily create a list of tasks to achieve that goal.

2. Choose one project to work on, and COMPLETE it.

You'll have multiple products, projects and ideas for your business at any given time. There are always a lot of moving parts and pieces to running an online business. Not sure where to start with it all? Pick ONE thing and knock it out! Then move on to the next.

3. Create an "Action Steps" list to complete that project or product.

TIP: break that list down into micro-tasks, in the order they need to be done, then start at the top and do ONE simple task at a time. Every single thing you mark off the list, even the smallest thing, will give you a sense of accomplishment and create momentum to help you power through the project!


Turn off all distractions, silence notifications, close browsers or programs you're not using for the task at hand, and FOCUS ON ONE THING all the way through to completion!

5. Work in Time Blocks

I find it helps most to create a schedule or routine of working in Time Blocks. This is especially useful if you're working on multiple projects, or juggling a variety of things in your growing business.

Set aside uninterrupted "focus time" for content creation, product creation, social media marketing, list building, learning, outreach/connecting/recruiting, etc.

6. Be your own BOSS

Are you doing a lot of personal stuff while you're on the clock? Are you making the company money, or costing the company time & money?

If YOU were your own boss (oh wait! you are!)... would you fire you, or promote you - and give you a big fat raise for being such an amazing asset to the business?

I would love to hear YOUR tricks for staying on task, and staying focused on your goals!

Goal Planners & Journals for Creating Success


"Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities." ~Gloria Steinem

Do you make lists, use a digital planner, mindmaps, a whiteboard, spreadsheets, are you a doodler or do you GEEK OUT over planners & journals and have a creative flair for planning - or do you WISH you did?



What's your goal planning style?!


Goal Planning Journals


MY goal planning strategy hasn't been working for me...

So it's time for a change!

I've had a successful, profitable business for over 23 years, so obviously what I'm doing IS working - to an extent, at least. πŸ˜‰

What I'm finding though, is no matter how productive or how profitable my day is, I'm not getting to the BIG goals. Or I haven't been making room in my schedule or routine for the things I really want to accomplish in my life & business.

Smart marketers are gearing up for 2020 and getting set up for an AMAZING year!

This part always makes me feel totally overwhelmed to be honest.

It's like my brain freezes up just thinking about it all, especially right after the holidays & new year!

This year though, I found the PERFECT solution. 🎯

I discovered Angie Gensler, and the 2020 "Done-For-You" Social Media Content Calendar she created. I don't even know how it first crossed my screen, but I'm SO glad I stopped and checked it out!

If you're scanning in a hurry, there are 3 points in this note:

Both of thoseΒ ☝️ are great for ANY niche and any business model.

3. Her funnel is SO simple yet so WELL DONE, that I encourage you to analyze itΒ 🔎 and use it as a working model to emulate...

🤳 Smove Mobile: Your Virtual Cinematographer for Social Marketing 🔥


If you struggle to create decent marketing videos, or get frustrated with mobile livestreaming & video quality 🤳 you MUST check out Smove.

It's the TOP mobile gimbal / pro mobile stabilizer, and the ONLY one that does face-tracking (and even product tracking!) which allows you to create HIGH quality videos without expensive equipment or HOURS of learning.

With a Smove Mobile you can easily create your own livestreams, videos or even product demo videos that look like you have your own personal cinematographer.

I also scored you a discount code for SMOVE πŸ˜‰ Use code lynnterry10 at checkout for an exclusive discount!

Watch this (and prepare to be IMPRESSED at what it does):

I just got mine so I can't wait to unbox it and start using it for demo videos and also for action shots on my fun adventures! πŸ™‚

I got the SmoveMobile instead of this smaller Smove. I was torn, but there's only about a $20 difference and I love the longer handle & built in tripod of the SM. I do love this smaller Smove (vs SmoveMobile) because it's SO compact.

Live Video has been the most profitable addition to my niche marketing strategy over the last couple of years.

Are you causing your own failures? Stop that!

What are you avoiding or procrastinating on in your business out of fear, a confidence crisis, or because you worry it won't be good enough - or that it will just flat out FAIL? Or maybe you have another reason for hesitating on your projects and goals...

➡️ Newsflash: you guarantee failure with "failure to launch!" πŸ˜‰

Just DO THINGS - do things less than perfect, do them badly even, then tweak & improve as you go. ☑️

Get in the habit of FINISHING and PUBLISHING.

💡 6 Types of Content to Boost Your Social Media Engagement

This should be FUN - and they're all easy ways to see fast results. πŸ™‚

My challenge to you for the week: Do each of these 6 easy content ideas to improve your traffic & social media engagement!

Alice Seba posed a question this week on Facebook in one of her groups about free vs paid content, or access to you. My answer to that was 1- it depends on your niche and business model (of course). And 2- The more content I create and the more accessible I am to my audience... the more money I make. πŸ˜‰

If you want exposure, traffic & sales - creating content is the answer. Even if it's just on social media (quick & easy!) and even if you don't yet have anything to offer or sell (use affiliate links!).

It's just TOO EASY to be making sales online right now for you to NOT be doing it.
