Miss yesterday’s Roundup? Read it here
It’s another gorgeous summer day here in Central Ontario. It’s supposed to be super hot this afternoon though, so I’m glad I don’t really have to go anywhere. Shaun is leaving me the car today, so I might take a run out to Chapters and get my birthday book binge out of the way. Got any good recommendations for either business or personal development books you think I should consider?
Here’s what I have for you this morning…

The Annual Stretch Yourself Challenge is Coming!
Every September Kelly McCausey hosts the Stretch Yourself Challenge, and it’s time to sign up for the 2020 version now. The challenge can be life-changing if you let it, and if you take part and do the mini-challenges that make up the overall.
Last year I did it, and I got over my fear of being on live video by doing a series of Facebook Lives, plus creating a new youtube channel, and I can’t remember what the third challenge I tackled was. But, look at me now…
When I started the challenge last year I didn’t want to be seen on video at all. Since then, I’ve done live trainings, hosted a summit and am getting ready to host the Round Tables for my Deluxe Birthday Bash buyers.
Check it out here and see if it’s something you might be interested in. Kelly’s opened it up for pre-orders and you can save $30 if you register now. I hope to see you there!

Daily Tips – 3 Time Sucks to Watch Out For
It happens to everyone sooner or later. The more you try to be productive and get work done, the more the time sucks come out to play. Here are 3 time sucks to watch out for, and to eliminate from your day.
1. Unnecessary Interruptions
Most people are not able to switch quickly from task to task, yet interruptions are common problems people encounter when trying to improve their productivity. In order to remove disruption from your day, create and stick to a schedule for each thing that you need to do.
Tell those around you not to interrupt you during specific times of the day or if you have put up your “do not disturb” sign.
2. Lack of Planning
Are you a planner, or are you a wing-it-er? I definitely lean toward the wing-it side of the scale. But, when I sit down and write out a plan, it does help to keep me focused and in the flow. It’s why I keep a journal for to-do lists open on my desk all day long.
Save some time in your day to engage in short term, medium-term, and long-term planning. It doesn’t really matter what you’re planning for, when you make plans and set goals, you’ll almost always be more focused and more productive, even when you prefer to wing it like me.
3. Thinking You Have to Do It All Yourself
Just because you’re a solopreneur, you really do not have to do everything yourself. These days you might be raising your kids, starting a business, running a business, or running a household, or some combination of all of the above.
Don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it. Get your spouse, your kids, other family members, to help where you can. And also think about paying people to do the things you don’t want to do.
And that’s it for me this morning. I’m off to find some breakfast and settle in for an afternoon of work.
Have an amazing day! Create what makes your heart happy.
