Nothing Went as Planned

Services for Real Estate Pros with Projects By Shawn LLC

I had really high hopes for this time of year when it came to my business.  I mean the 4th quarter is supposed to be the best time for bloggers.




Well, let's just say that nothing went according to my plans.  I wanted to release a set of new products in my Shopify store, I wanted to release a new product of my own, and I wanted to run an exclusive Black Friday promotion.


What I didn't count on is my Pinterest traffic going into the toilet, me having to travel for work for a week right after a personal vacation, and then the icing on the cake was me getting sick which lasted for 2 weeks.


Not having enough time is always an issue.  Combine that with sickness it's an efficiency killer.


But all wasn't lost...


In the midst of everything going bananas I was able to get a few things accomplished:

  • I started some email list training that I'm sure will help me build engagement and start making more money from my email list.

  • I was able to get out a few planned blog posts about inexpensive meals, finance apps, and my 2019 Christmas Gift Guide written and posted.

  • And I started promoting a finance bundle that I know will help my subscribers push forward with managing their money.


I'm super excited about each one of these accomplishments.


I started out with the complaining just to say that even if things don't go the way you plan, you can still accomplish a lot. Be thankful and celebrate your small wins.


Leave a comment and share some of your accomplishments. I want to help you celebrate.
