Hello world!

Jessica is really living life. I am now in my third trimester and I just can’t wait to see my baby!! But in the mean time I got some stuff to do. I spent the weekend in beautiful Chesapeke Bay and it really reinforced my want to be location independent with my career. I do feel that I am moving in that direction. I also feel like its never going to happen and I am going to be stuck back in desk jockey position. Alas, I think those thoughts are very normal. Lots to do today, including putting this all in my calendar and actually following the timeline of the day I created… just for fun. I haven’t scheduled myself in a whole day, for awhile. So lets see how it goes! Yay!

Today’s items are:

1. Discuss property with agent
2. Complete 2 calls with R & G
3. Work on supplemental income
4. Identify a network and schedule to go
5. 500 plan update

Katie

Hi!  There was NO reality in my schedule.  I was just doing or not doing things willy-nilly.  I can’t beleive I just said that! What is going to allow me to be successful is ACTION and so I am promising one meaningful work thing a day.  That is probably appropriate because it turns out everything takes WAY longer than I think it is going to, but that is to be expected since I am doing pretty much everything for the first time.  So promises for the day are now going to be 1 major thing and maybe some minutea;)

1. Write my about page
2. Call Gayle, Dad and Michael
3. Decide if I am going to CO

Hello world!

Katie learned that she is sometimes TOTALLY out of touch with reality.  I mean I have no idea how long it is going to take to do what I have to do.  None!  I think something is going to take an hour it takes 3 to do half of it.  I don’t even really know when things are done.  I have talked about this before but they say fail to plan, plan to fail.  What no one says is  plan on your plan failing which is what I have seen happen most – lol.  DISCLAIMER:  I do not have a super significant relationship to failure, so I am in no way dis-empowered by that last statement.  If my statement “plan on your plan failing” upsets or triggers something in you.  You may want to look at your relationship with failure as it is likely you are making it mean something about who you are as a person that plans don’t work out as planned.

Today’s items are:

1. Buy podcasting hardware
2. Spend 1 hour developing my timeline
3. Post poll on FB about names

Jessica has learned that pregnant ladies have hormones. 🙂 The last few days have been a real release of emotions for me. With my job ending the way that it did, I didn’t get the opportunity to say goodbye to people. I also am nervous about what I am creating next around my future business. I am also six months pregnant, this weekend actually marks the end of my second trimester and I am definitely feeling the crazy, or I guess I should really say my friends are. Thank god for good friends who will endure your strange, neurotic pregnancy woes. Yesterday and Monday I did get everything done on my list. I listened to 14 hours of podcasts! Whew! And had a great call with the woman in sober living and got some more contacts in San Diego.

Today’s items are:

1. Complete with G
2. Prepare for departure and schedule ride from airport
3. Present for father in law

Hello world!

Katie did it all this weekend.  However, one of my actions was to take MASSIVE ACTION on my podcast.  I am not sure that I completed that because I don’t even know what that means.  Now the reason that I wrote that action is because i didn’t know what to commit to and instead of figuring that out I said something vague – LOL!  What I can see now is that is not going to allow me to get anything accomplished/completed.  Time to start making SMART (Specific, Measurable, Actionable, Realistic and Timely) actions.

Today’s SMART promises are:

1. Buy domain name
2. Write down vision
3. Create template email
4. Create timeline

Jessica had a very productive weekend. Jessica is now officially a free agent. And fully dedicating herself to becoming a successful mompreneur. This first week out on my own is a perfect test case. I am committed to being location independent and I am going to DC on Thursday and Friday. I know that I will not be able to get in full 8 hour work days but how can I efficiently use and hour here and there to keep things moving forward.

Today’s items are:

1. Schedule my visit to Long Beach
2. Call Sober Living woman
3. Review former podcasts
4. Create a structure for success.

Hello world!

Katie did everything that she said – YAY!!! My birthday was great.  It was relaxing and intimate and I LOVED IT!  The main thing I learned yesterday was from listening to the podcast of The Suitcase Entrepreneur.  She interviewed the ladies who started Activyst which was a crowd sourced bag company and it was a great interview.  I learned all about what it takes to successfully launch a product on Indiegogo or Kickstarter.

Today’s items are:

1. Apply to Fire Nation Elite
2. Schedule the next bonfire  and ladies night
3. Take massive action around Be the Change
4. Jello wrestling 

Jessica did go to the inspection and learned all about her property.  It was good and whhoooaaa there is a lot to do.  There was some termite presence that the owner has to deal with prior to close.  And there are some significant things that need to be handled by us if we are going to get the house as up to date as they could be.  There is a lot to learn and know when buying a house.

Today’s items are:

1. Set-up keyboard and start practicing
2. Go through disclosures and setup inspections for next week
3. Call longtime sober living person and talk to her about being your QB

Have a great weekend,

K

Hello world!

OMG – It’s my birthday!!!  I am soooo excited.  I am going to be working for 4 hours and then my day is all mine:)  I will be getting a pedicure, working out, having a bonfire and more and the best part is that I am already in the best mood, feeling loved and COMPLETELY present to how amazing my life is.  Yesterday I had coffee with John Dumas – AMAZING!  And it was really fun.  My is the awesome adventure that I am excited to continue to discover.

Today’s items are:

1. Go to the gym
2. Don’t do ANY work I don’t want to
3. HAVE FUN AND BE PRESENT!

Jessica is really taking on her style and communication in regards to business. I am in a relationship seminar and looking at where my communication is not sufficient for creating the kind of empire that I want to create. So that I can make a difference on a global scale. Today I am focusing on the property I am in escrow with and getting everything reviewed so my husband and I can discuss the options this weekend. AND I am going to celebrate my girl, Miss Katie tonight! We are going to heat it up at a bonfire! Yay! First bonfire since I have been in San Diego.

Today’s items are:

1. Inspection
2. Go to Katie’s birthday

Hello world!

This past weekend I did everything that I said I would.  WOO HOOOO for all promises kept.  Man does that chatter in my mind threaten me honoring what I said I would do.  It really doesn’t take that long to get stuff done once I get in action around it.  Procrastination is the HUGEST time suck.  Lesson – when you notice you are procrastinating – JUST STOP IT!

Today’s items are:

1. Mission/Vision and create my ideal listener for my new podcast complete
2. 1.5 hrs on PPP

Jessica had a pretty awesome weekend. I went to a Sober Living Training class about how to prepare a home for people to live in as they create their new lifestyle drug free. I met the kind of people that are running these homes and ultimately found out much more about them. I have not thus far found out the real secrets to success in this business but I did find out a lot of the pitfalls to avoid. And I am very excited to get started on it.

The other thing I am learning is the value of being an entrepreneur. I finally see that it really isn’t that risky and it completely worth it. The company that I am currently working has turned into a very scary and intimidating work environment, more scary than starting my own business to at a minimum cover my own bills. And I think that people deal with that all the time. An environment where their boss doesn’t like them, or that is illegally requiring that you work overtime on salary, even though you are not managing people. Or a company that is going through hard financial times and is potentially looking at layoffs. All of those can be much more scary than venturing out on your own. When you work for a company there are often so many mouths fed before yours that you end up doing all the meaningful work so the investors and board members can get paid later, and then the management team can get paid now. While you are there thinking, why am I doing this? Or at least I am. And I first realized this in 2007, the fact that it has taken me so long to fully commit is embarrassing. But there is no looking back now only forward… and I am jumping in.

Today’s items are:

1. Go to the seminar
2. Prepare my baby shower list
3. Talk to DR

Hello world!

Katie has some un-reality or some fantasy around her calendar.  I noticed that I am anticipating teleporting in my schedule because I don’t have ANY travel time included in my event.  What?  That is just plain old crazy!  That changes today.  I am the master of my own destiny and calendar, so I am putting in travel time and building my day the way that I want it.

Today’s items are:

1. Exercise
2. Research Podcast

Jessica had a big day yesterday. That phrase, when it rains it pours was definitely the way it went yesterday for me. We looked at the new 4 unit property that we have an offer accepted on. We liked it and are going to move forward with it. So we have between now and July 2nd to accomplish a whole slew of tasks. Also, my lawyer has news for me and I am looking forward to speaking to her about my current case today. And then when I got home my new Galaxy S4 had arrived. And I am super excited about that. But since I am currently on an iPhone, I didn’t want to figure out how to transfer and what won’t transfer so I will get that going this weekend.

Today’s items are:

1. Wire the deposit to the escrow company
2. Talk to the lawyer… finish this stuff!
3. Sleep… the pregnant lady (ME) has gotten 5-6 hours a night this whole week so sleeping a whole bunch is on the list!

Hello world!

Its’ Katie here.  I did it all and then some:)  I read through chapter 8 of Podcast Launch and am really excited to implement what I learned.  BTW – that may mean moving off of the BlogTalkRadio platform.  I also set up a Facebook page with autoposts through Sunday for MITM.  Jessica has informed me that we can have all blog posts autopost to Facebook which is REALLY exciting, because automation = more time to spend on other stuff:)

1. Start list of 50 Paleo blogpost topics
2. Register for NSD 2.0 Mastermind
3. Research for podcast

Jessica has an offer accepted on a house! YaaaaY! Now begins the inspection process. Starting with actually going and seeing the property on the inside. Since, it is a multi-unit we have not been able to see the inside until we had an offer accepted. So today is the day. Also, yesterday I applied to be in a Mastermind Group for a Niche site duel, where I will learn and accept the challenge of getting a keyword I select to number 1 in Google, which I have never been able to do in the past but am very excited to take on the challenge.

Today’s items are:

1. Go see house
2. Go to piano class
3.  Call lawyer about giving notice

Have a great day!

Hello world!

Katie did it all this weekend:)  I accomplished all of the things I set out to do and what I learned as I completed things at midnight last night is perhaps I don’t need to make things as much work as I sometimes do.  Perhaps struggling is really optional.  That said – NO MORE STRUGGLES FOR ME!  I am done with that stuff!

Today’s items are:

1. Read 3 chapters of Podcast Launch
2. Create show notes – doing it now:)

Jessica is sleepy today. Too many exciting things going on!

Today’s items are:

1. Go to Seminar
2. Blood Glucose Test
3. Talk to Realtor about offers

Love you guys!  Keep on keeping on!
