self discovery day 31

Is there a part of your life that you wish was more organized?

  • No, not really. Maybe to have an organized gameplan for my business & the amount of workload vs time I have to get it done & time spent on the workload. 

Are you in the same boat, are you someone who needs a part of your life more organized? if so, what is it and what are you doing in order to make that happen? leave answers in the comments, and like, follow and share!

365 days of self discovery: Day 30

Are you an organized person?

  • I would say yes I am. I use my planner/calendar daily for everyday task, keep up on work schedule, planning events, layout of my to-do list and to keep my brain in check so that I know what to expect that is “planned” for the day. I also very much enjoy an organized space; I am a little more picky about what that entails and when I get my own place, I will definitely have a place for everything and if not, then it will be stored away. Even when it comes to clothing, I like having my winter clothing separate from my spring/and summer clothing. Sometimes it might seem over the top, but when I do get my own office space besides using my bedroom, I want papers to be in folders and the room to be designed as productive space so that my brain feels at ease when I am blogging or needing alone time doing projects or meditation. 

Are you an organized person? we all have certain levels of organization that we need in our lives & some can careless as to how organized their space is (wish that could be me sometimes). If you are someone who is organized, explain in what ways & leave the answer in the comments. 

I passed my exam!

ACSM certified personal trainer!

I wanted to share the good news with everyone, I retook the ACSM personal training exam for the third time and PASSED IT! I am not certified and really excited. I shared the good news on social media if you follow me, but wanted my blog friends to know the good news. For this reason, I have not been on the blog in 5 days, because I was really focused and determined and wanted to spend my days studying (it paid off). The test was hard and very long, but I am so happy it is finished, finally over! no more studying for the exam that cost me my sanity, LOL. 

 

In the meantime, I am focusing on changing my social media platforms to reflect the good news of my certification. I am giving myself 2-4 weeks to have a business plan/ideas written down, because along with working at a gym, I want to build my own personal training business and build a clientale list that hopefully will be both profitable and fun! I have a knack for fitness and wanting to help people feel good about themselves, so that’s my mission. Everything will be in steps and NOT rushed, because I want my business to flourish and be true to self and my values. It’s very important I pay attention to key details and have patience because I know it will take time. 

 

If you are a personal trainer or someone who currently runs your own business within the fitness industry, I would love to hear tips, advice, any type of help that would be in my favor to give me more perspective. I have learned some things from my college days but it has been 2 years since I have graduated and some of the teachings have faded from my mind since then, so I want information and of course want to network with like-minded individuals. 

 

Next stop: working on a business plan. 

 

Thank you to all those who have been more than supportive of me and my dreams, goals and aspirations. I live for this and want to be the best trainer and help I can be within this industry.  

 

I have plans of creating a whole new website (with my own domain) for just personal training – but I will continue to keep this blog and make post and will have links, etc, I just want a more professional looking website for the business aspects and I also am thinking of making a new FB page dedicated to personal training with fun blogs, videos, sign up pages for training, etc, which then in turn will mean a second Instagram profile that is separate from my personal instagram –I would continue to post to the personal one. 

I will continue to train for powerlifting and meets, so that won’t stop but now I have another focus and that is building myself & my brand.

I am an Instagram Winner – first time , hopefully not last time.

I won a free custom made planner!

 

I entered into a giveaway for a free planner that a fellow blogger created, and won! I don’t know if many of you are aware of the giveaways that people do on #instagram but I try to always participate to win free items that would benefit me or my life in some way (clothes, planners, supplements, etc). I have entered into maybe 3 giveways and never end up winning but this particular one I did win and I am very joyful about it because it is very amazing looking, she did a really good job of it and secondly because I use planners – they keep my life in order (without one, I am not sure how I would survive.. metaphorically speaking and my whole world would be lost). This particular planner I am going to be using starting in March will be used as my #blogplanner so it will help to keep organized with my blog and fitness challenges and basically will be the key to all my upcoming goals and priorities that have to do with my blog, youtube, and social media. 

I told you in previous post I am always looking to enhance my blog page and content for all the readers and I always try to do what I can and so by winning this planner it will lead me in the right direction and enhance what I already have planned for all of you 🙂 

 

I will be sure to share photos of me and the planner next month 🙂 so everyone will get the chance to have a look at it before I start using it! 

 

#Cheers
