MONTHLY MOTIVATION 👩🏻💻 September 2023
Tech wallpapers, calendars, + resources to help you focus for the month ahead.
Let’s call this an experiment — but I thought this week I’d try sending out September’s “Monthly Motivation” in place of The Weekly Page to make it easier for you to grab all these free resources.
In case you missed it last month, I publish these over on Substack and provide a few free resources (like calendars, wallpapers, and playlists!), a quote, and a short podcast recording with yours truly to help as you plan for the month head.
In this month’s podcast, I’m revealing a few details about my new, year-long program that will be launching in October. If you’re committed to getting more organized and focused while developing better habits around both work and wellness in the year ahead — it might be a great fit for you! I’ll also tell you about the 15-minute systems refresh routine I do each month and the exact tools and services I use to keep four key areas of my life/biz organized.
Scroll below to grab the goods, and head to the comments to let me know if you have any suggestions for other things I could feature in these monthly round-ups that would help support you.
👏🏻WORDS: This quote hits home for me. Learning not to just set goals…but to develop SYSTEMS around those goals was an absolute game-changer for me. If this is something you’re curious about, be sure to hit play on the podcast recording below!
🎧 PODCAST: I am currently living *in an RV* and in this month’s little podcast I’m sharing a bit more about that adventure, revealing the name of my new group program (and a bit about it!) and teaching you the exact 15-minute routine I do at the beginning of each month to ensure all my digital systems are up and running + the exact services and tools I use to keep four main aspects of my life and business goin’. Can’t listen? There’s a full transcript here if you’d prefer to read.
🙌🏻GROUP PROGRAM: My first-ever year-long group program focused on aligning your work & wellness will begin this fall! Learn more by joining the launch list here.
🎶 PLAYLIST: Grab a good drink, light a candle, and press play on this curated playlist to put you in a focused and productive mood while you plan for September…it starts off with an 8D track. 8D tracks are fun to listen to on headphones, as the sound sort of bounces from ear to ear, creating a slight spinning sensation that can help you relax and focus. Give it a try!
