Over at my writing site, I do a weekly round up of things I’ve been up to and it’s known at Friday Ramblings From An Author. I thought I’d try that on this site too, well, a month by month Ramblings to begin with just to give it a test run.
So here’s what I got up to this cold and snowy February.
This year I knew I had to get more organized about what had to be done, what should be done, and what wasn’t worth bothering with. In January, on I created a file on my laptop with the name of the month and the words to do. Inside I added everything I felt need to be tackled and when it was done I’d remove it from the folder. I’m not sure if it was the enthusiasm of the New Year kicking in or what, but when January 31st rolled around, it was empty. I changed the name to February and guess what, it’s already empty! I’m not saying I’ve found a magic formula for getting stuff done, but give it a try and see what happens.
A couple of things that were in the folder were launching BSGFreedomU, I hope you’ve checked it out. This week I added two more classes, one on productivity and the other on making money with affiliate marketing.A couple of things that were in the folder were launching BSGFreedomU, I hope you’ve checked it out.

Back in December I published Fabulously Frugal which gave me the idea for a whole series of 30 Day Makeover books. Last month it was about decluttering, this month it’s organizing. Yesterday I hit the publish button on that title and here’s the cover. Hope you’ll check it out and its just 99 cents.
One other thing I knew I wanted to do was get this site refocused and that happened last week. I hope you’re liking it and I’d love your feedback. Is there something you want to see, a question you have, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
One thing I do every month is check all money that’s coming in and money that’s going out for running my business. It gives me a clearer view of what I’m spending money on and if it was worth it for my business or not. I also check memberships I have and if they no longer serve me or my business, I cancel. It’s something I recommend you do as soon as you launch a business or even if you’re starting a side line business. My biggest problem has always been focusing on things that while they’re fun, haven’t brought in the biggest return money wise. This is a topic we’ll get more into next month.
My goal is to have something for you on this site five days a week. It might not happen straight away but it’s what I’ve set as a long term goal. Starting on Monday and every Monday, I’ll also be copying something I also do over at TWL, and that’s post something motivational. For this site it’s going to be a quote and image that I hope you’ll take with you for the week as you work on living the life you love.
