It’s the last week of the June Variety Article Writing Challenge over on Facebook and today I want to share three things I finished today as part of the challenge. Actually, I finished two personal tasks and three business tasks, but who is counting? 🙂
Today, I went to Tim Horton’s and bought the partner a strawberry and banana smoothie. He loves those things, and today is payday, which means I usually run out to get food he likes and exchange it for his paycheck. I know – smart thinking, right?
I also compiled a short video clip of CoCo (my five-month old puppy) and posted it to Facebook so you could see the new commands she learned. I especially like this video because every time I tell her to “go back” to the spot she started from – she immediately did it!
Watch the Video:
Three Business Tasks
1. Preparation for Kindle Publishing
I have been meaning to write for Kindle for many months now but never seem to get the time to do it. As I was cruising around the blog today, I bopped myself on the head because I already have a product I can turn into a Kindle book!
I immediately fired up Photoshop and turned my old book cover into something fantastically eye-catching! I am amazed that I didn’t think of doing this sooner, but better now than never, eh?
Here’s a copy of the old cover versus the new one:
I think the new cover is simply smashing compared to the old one. Yet, I know there is more work ahead of me. I need to format the report for Kindle and proofread the copy. I heard Scrivener makes it easy to format for Kindle so I am willing to give it a try.
2. Dog Obedience Training (Social Media Images)
I have a customer asking for content related to dogs. I finished 12 social media images on the topic of dog obedience and now I am conducting research to create an infographic for the package. I hope to have it uploaded to PLR Productions by next week.
Here is a look at one of the social images:
3. Added a Subscription Box to the Sidebar Menu
Lastly, I removed the subscription box from the top of the page and added one to the sidebar menu. I originally added the larger subscription notice to the top of my blog when my mentor suggested I make some changes.
I grew tired of seeing the big box at the top of my pages so I opted to remove it and place a banner there instead. I never really carried much advertising on my blog and want to give it a try to see if it makes a difference with my passive income.
The moral of the story is…
As an entrepreneur, there is always something beckoning for your attention; but, if you take baby steps you can make quite an impact on your workload. I aim to do this every week in hopes of seeing a list that is entirely void of work-related tasks!
What three things did you accomplish today or this week? Leave a comment below and let me know!
