The Earn Learn Thrive Productivity Planner

Are you an ELT Freelance professional or business owner?

You love the freedom and flexibility running your own business brings, but often feel overwhelmed with everything you have to do. You already spend so much time working in your business, serving clients- how are you supposed to find the time to actually run your business effectively, and even plan ahead or come up with new business ideas?

The Earn Learn Thrive Productivity Planner: for ELT Freelancer Professionals and Business Owners is specifically designed to help you break down your goals into bite-size manageable chunks, and use your time in the most effective way. You can get more done, AND actually reduce the amount of time you spend hunched over a desk.

Step by step, the productivity planner will take you through an easy system which helps you to get better at planning, assessing your time accurately, and learning as you go.

It’s a combination of goal setting, regular reviews, and daily time blocking. And it really works.

  • The ELT Productivity Planner is undated, so you can start at any point in the year.

     

  • There are 8 x six week sprints, meaning that it will last at least 48 weeks (if you don’t take any holidays- which you definitely should!)

Why you struggle to switch off from your business

Why you struggle to switch off from your business

You might think that you have plenty of time off work (or you might not, but that’s another subject!), but do you truly switch off from your business in that time?Technology makes it harder and harder for us to ever truly be ‘off’ as it’s so tempting to just respond...

How to prioritise tasks in my business?

How to prioritise tasks in my business?

When you’re running a business it can feel like you’re juggling a million things, and that’s before you even start to think about the bigger picture and planning ahead.

It seems logical that you should prioritise those tasks which feel most urgent. And, don’t get me wrong, some of them probably really do have to be priorities.

But if we devote all our time to fire-fighting, we are never going to get out from under the overwhelm, and we’re likely to be spending a lot more time than we realise doing things that aren’t actually helping us to earn more, work less, and definitely not to live more fully. So, how can you know what your priorities really are?

Annual business review 2022

Annual business review 2022

Ever since I started my business in 2018, I’ve been carrying out regular reviews of my business. And, together with support from a couple of great coaches, I think this has been largely responsible for the frankly great progress I’ve made, from a side gig to a full time business, and doubling my income each year for the first three years- and this year still managing to increase it by 50%.

For the last two years I’ve written an annual business review blog post detailing what’s gone well, what’s not gone so well (and what I learnt from it), and my goals for the year ahead, and how I plan to make them happen. Why? Because I believe in transparency, and I also think my clients, potential clients, and even those who will never work with me can learn a lot from it, and I’m all about helping people to learn and grow.

How to know when you need to put your prices up?

How to know when you need to put your prices up?

Most of us are living in a situation where prices are going up rapidly. In the UK inflation is at 10%. Now you might be telling yourself that this means you CAN’T put your prices up- people won’t be able to afford it.There is some reality to this, but, think of it...
