Just a quick update on my journey! I have been subscribed to an online group named Business Boutique and they have videos where they help you build a business plan by the time you finish these particular videos. I finally got through all the videos, and it definitely opened up my eyes about who my target market is and reaching them through social media and email. So I have quite a bit to think about and put on paper :)

Ah nerve wracking question lol!!
Here is the simple version I guess:
My idea is to make planners to help people to learn how to set goals in a simple way. My target market is going to be women in their mid 20’s who live crazy busy lives, and I will be marketing via facebook and instagram. I am stuck on figuring out pricing since I don’t have my physical product yet. So, I don’t have a financial plan yet. I will work from home in the evenings. I hope I answered this okay ? if you have other tips on solidifying a business plan please let me know!

It’s going okay! I’ve gotten a little behind due to my husband getting sick last week, but I’m trying to keep the ball rolling. I just need to figure out a system that works for me and my schedule ? balancing everything and keeping boundaries has gotten a little difficult.
A little bit of consistent effort week on week is the most powerful thing. Keep going!

That's a great plan so far! I love it! :) I think your next step would be to get a couple prototypes maybe and then do a group study. We do that when launching new products at the juice bar and then ask questions like: "Do you like the taste, would you pay for that?" but with some questions that pertain to planners. haha ;)

I didn’t even consider doing that, thank you!

I’ve been intentional about getting in the habit of posting on my social media sites atleast once a day - not much interaction but working on it! Also, I’ve been posting a blog once a week so building consistency ? and proud moment : I created my first printable! I just have to learn how to use mail chimp so I can offer it to my email subscribers

Consistency is key, you can do it! I'm only getting a handful of views on my entrepreneur path videos but I'll be so ready when one of them hits it big. Whether it takes 1 year or 5. THEN you have a ton of pre-existing content for your followers to engage with

Yes!! I agree with Sam. :) Even if it's not big now, it will be someday and you're going to have so much content for them because of your consistency. ;)

Still staying consistent with posting on my blog and instagram/Facebook. I’m learning alot about what’s working and what isn’t. I finally got an email pop up on my website too! Lol so slow but I’m putting one foot in front of the other:) Any ideas for the a good design program? Publisher? Adobe in design? What has worked for you?

Well done on maintaining your consistency! Not sure on the design front

It’s been a little while since I have shared anything but I have written and scheduled my remaining blogs for 2018, so that frees up a lot of my time and mind to focus now on creating my products! Yay! One step closer 🙌🏻
