September 30, 2021

< back to blog home

How's that big project you're working on in your business? Are you actually accomplishing things each week? Or are you getting stuck in the day-to-day overwhelm of all the other tasks that you have to focus on?

Taking on a huge project can be very confusing and overwhelming. I've definitely been there! Like, where do you even start? Where do you spend all your time & energy? If we do not handle these feelings well, they may lead to frustration, avoidance, procrastination, and finding other things to fill our time.

It's defeating us before we've even begun. 

This episode of the podcast will walk you through step-by-step how to create a clear action plan to finally launch that course, membership, or big project you've been dreaming about! You’ll learn how to make clear decisions, set clear goals, and select priorities so that you can implement your next business idea or project in an intuitive and strategic way.

No more #excuses. Let's cut off the loop on unproductive tasks. Stop the feeling of being overwhelmed, stressed out, and defeated before you begin.

Whatever business project you are working on this season, I want to help you come up with a really actionable strategy on how to get it done.
