This post is more about being a biz owner/solopreneur than it is about jewelry or inspiration or stones or techniques or giveaways/sales. However, it's not solely about business either, because it applies to life outside work as well.
Being a single homeschooling mom working on making a business soar can be a bit overwhelming, to say the least. I'm always looking for resources to help me organize my time and thoughts and habits, and streamline my days so I can get the most out of them. Truth be told, on many days I don't feel so efficient. I'm not a goal-oriented person, but being in business for myself, I realize how freakin' important it is to set goals-doh. Goals give direction! I'm getting better, but I can always use a little help. So imagine how happy I was to find Leonie Dawson's Create Your Incredible Year Workbook and Calendar. I was powerfully drawn to them by my still small voice inside which got immediately very loud, telling me I need these! Woooooot! My artistic brain does need some structure and a wee bit of compartmentalizing to run a biz, yes? (well that's an affirmative.) These workbooks are a beautiful integration of left and right brain thinking and activity, soooo very insightful for anyone ready to work with them. Leonie has created two versions of this useful workbook, the Biz edition and Life edition. I ordered both and began work in both just the other day. And YE-E-E-SSSS! it's just what I needed- mainly in the areas of evaluating the past year and dreaming up big dreams and goals for the coming year, then scheduling my tasks in the accompanying calendar. We must take action if we want our lives to take the direction we dream of. If it's not already apparent, my heart and soul is very much wrapped up in my biz and I have big hopes for it. These workbooks and calendars are proving themselves to be essential tools in clarifying exactly what I intend to manifest in life and biz in 2013.
What do you want to manifest in 2013? More free time? More income? More creativity? A new relationship? Write it down and make it happen!
"The 2013 Create Your Incredible Year workbook, planner & calendar is an incredibly popular & useful tool to help you plan out & make happen your most incredible year in life or business (or both!). Over the last four years, thousands of women have used this workbook with the most amazing results. It’s the best planning tool available to help you make your year your most exceptional yet!

I heartily recommend either of the workbooks-or both- for you, even if you're not overwhelmed and don't occasionally lose focus or get downtrodden with the weight of the world, but especially if you are looking to make a major life shift. If you wanna do the work, these can facilitate the change! I'll be blogging more on my process as I make my way through them over the next few months, so stay tuned and let me know if you decide to try them! And men, although this is geared toward goddesses, it might just make a sweet little gift for a dear woman in your life. Have a look and you'll know if it's right for her.
