If you’re like me, you struggle sometimes with finding time to do everything involved with running our businesses. This is why I recently created a simple 8-point business wellness plan to help me stay organized, make sure my business runs smoothly — and ultimately, save time in the process.
In today’s post I’ll share all 8 points of this straightforward framework to help you schedule, and stay consistent with, the essential tasks you need to do regularly in your business.
If you’re ready to spend less time “fighting fires” as a business owner so you can experience more “smooth sailing” toward success, this W.E.L.L.N.E.S.S. plan is designed to help you do exactly that. So, let’s dive in!
E: Education Day
To Do: Monthly
Learning new skills and strategies is essential if you want to remain relevant in your industry and continue growing your business. Still, it’s easy to push this step to the back burner when things get busy – which is why it’s in your business wellness plan.
Avoid growth plateaus (aka ‘getting into a rut’) by carving out a day in your monthly schedule to take (or finish) a course, read articles or watch videos on a particular topic you’ve been wanting to learn, etc.
For extra accountability, plan a day to do this with a business friend in person, via Skype — or just check in via text with one another throughout the day to note what you’ve learned.
S: Social Video
To Do: Weekly/Monthly
Whether it’s IG Stories, IGTV, FB Live or YouTube — these days it’s incredibly important to have some sort of online video presence. If you don’t want to be left behind, forgotten, or overlooked, add video into your routine and business wellness plan.
Ideally, you’d schedule time to connect with your audience via video on a weekly basis. But if monthly seems more do-able, start there. Simply share answers to FAQ’s, behind-the-scenes stuff, quick tips — anything your audience might find valuable or interesting.
S: Social Post Batching
To Do: Monthly
Creating a lot of social media images at once (aka batching) will save you a lot of time and stress when it comes to maintaining your social media presence. This is one of the easiest parts of your business wellness plan.
The idea here is to create multiple quote images, content promo graphics, behind-the-scene images, etc. so you always have something to share that fits cohesively with your brand aesthetic.
One way to save additional time while batching your social posts is to use templates you can edit in Canva.
