The Power Squad Project


"A little progress a day adds up to big results." - Unknown

There's nothing better than a clear end and a clear beginning. 
I get so excited for the start of a new song!  
Where will they take me?  
Will I be motivated to dance?
Or sing?
Will men in perfectly white uniforms want to serenade me?

The Power Squad Project

How about my favorite to-do list?
Man - I love lists!
I've got list of lists. 
And plans. 
It's so fun to start one.  To figure out the week's plan, then the grocery list, then order of preparation and when. 
Even if I never actually do it. 

And of course I love month end. 
I face head on. 
Game on. 
My numbers. 
My plans vs my results. 
My income vs my spending. 
What worked. 
What didn't. 

I love it. 
And here we are at the end of this month.  End of August and it feels like completely new time.  
New moon in fact. 
September is when the summer is over. 
When the kids are back in school. 
When you have an entire day to work an entire day. 
(Or lunch with your besties.)

September is time for specific forward movement. 

What are you going to be focusing on. 
Talk to me so I can cheer you on AND find you all the resources you need!

Quick side note from Ashleigh.  Here are my most favorite tools ever.

  • For audio motivation - Relentless by Tim Grover. I listen to him as I was in the mornings.  My walk always becomes a power walk after listening. 
  • To focus during the day I love to focus@will.  They say music helps you focus and for me it surely does.  I blare the classical music.  I am not sure how many people my age choose that over techno but either way I love it.
  • Rosemarie Groner (from the Busy Budgeter) is a friend and I just LOVE how much she gives everything away.  She tells you and anyone she can her detailed way to making money!  Start with her Pinterest Strategy Guide that is worth every penny.  Not. going. to. lie.


--> How the Busiest People Plan Their Days.  Cliff notes version: Keep open space for the unforseen, zero inbox = not being reactive, lunches mean meetings, meetings during bike rides, home time = home time and nothing else. 20 minutes a day to do nothing but think and write.  (Love it!!)


--> Our hearts are flooded in overwhelm for Texans.  Here's a great list of places where you can personally help.

--> I am forever loyal to people who are kind.  Bass Pro donated boats to help with the rescues in Texas.  Now if only I fished...


-->  This week's podcast was with Ann Imig.  I have long admired her and was shocked to hear she shut down her business!  You have to listen into her courageousness and leadership!
