Welcome Indie Brand Builders!
Last week we spoke about scheduling your time and increasing productivity. You know, the typical January talk!
But if you're anything like me, New Year's resolutions tend to fizzle out after a few months, or even weeks!
My goal this year is to grow my social media following. What’s yours?
The Five Star Focus for this week is all about establishing daily habits.
Why? Well, because these habits will not only help you make progress in your business, but they'll also help you smash through your goals!

Alex talks about the art of doing one thing repeatedly. As someone with ADHD, this is something I really struggle with. I'm always on to the next thing. But building a business, no matter what kind, requires showing up on a daily basis.
All this talk of showing up and establishing habits requires time.
For me time is the absolute biggest issue I face when trying to build my business. How can I possibly post content every day while juggling hundreds of other tasks in my business?
Focus on the 80/20 rule. (80% of outcomes come from 20% of efforts)
