Things to do in the first month of the new year for success


Welcome to the new year. The year of success! 
But to make this year a success, we, of course, need to get some things ready in this first month that will help us.

Like many people I started this year with some wild plans. And like may people some of those plans I will probably forget within the first few weeks and not think about again until the next year. But I really wanted to make and effort to get my business, blog and art goals going.

Therefore, I made sure I did these things in the first month (even the first week) that will help me make these things come through.

These things work for any goals, but I will be mostly talking about business and blogging.

2017 New years resolutions and goals // Creative entrepreneur

New Year is the time for new years resolutions. If you are a well-organised person that has their life together, you probably did some actual planning and instead of me you already made some great goals already.

But I like planning at the last possible moment. And thus I write my goals in this post on the afternoon of the 31 of December. But then again, you should never wait for a specific time or date to start a new habit. (But if you are writing blog posts for the coming Monday, your name is Sofie, and you are busy for the entire next month, you should have started earlier.)

Content ideas for your art or illustration blog!

You just started up your new art or illustration blog. You are sharing all your new works, creating incredible content and getting ready to sell some work.

But then you run out of content ideas. You don’t draw fast enough to make a post every week, let alone more times a week. You are getting behind and not posting enough. Maybe even your social media is starting to lag.

You need more topics. You need more ideas, more options to fill your blog and editorial calendar with new content.

How to relax these holidays as a blogger and entrepreneur!

Everybody deserves a break these holidays. But to actually relax and take a break can be hard. So how will you prepare and have a good relaxing break these holidays?

Imagine this;  It is the last day before my break and instead of working on said break I’m running around stressing because I still need to make sure everything is done for the holidays. Not the most relaxed ways to start a break.

But when I am finally finished I want to have the most relaxing break I could possibly have. I have a whole bucket list of things I want to do! These will be great to relax a little and I hope you can too with the help of this list.

A day in the life of an artist and solo-entrepreneur; lots of coffee

Working from home looks different for everyone. Some people have strict schedules. Other work when they feel like it.
There are no wrong or right ways, only the way that works best for you.
I love seeing how other people fill in their day working from home and how they handle everyday problems.
 
So I wanted to share a day in the life of me as an artist and creative solo-entrepreneur.

Automate your blog and business 100% free!

If you can automate your blog everything gets so much easier! Automating is the magic that makes running a blog actually manageable.

Unfortunately, this happens to me all the time; I read about the newest amazing tool. This one will make it so that I will have a successful email list + a gorgeous blog + 3 extra hours every day.  And then I find out that its $30 a month and I am a broke university student.

We all know that you have to invest money to make money but if you want all the features that top bloggers use and love you might have to pay over $500 a month.
