Each Monday in this post you can list out the goals or tasks you want to accomplish during the week, then on Friday we’ll check in to see how we all did.
The hope is that by holding each other accountable we can be more productive and continue to effectively grow together!
I will post mine in a subsequent comment and I encourage everyone to do the same!

I got most tasks complete except:
Sending the new pitch - I think I’m having imposter syndrome. I notice I’ve been putting it off the last couple of weeks.
Attending the productivity hour on Thursday ( conflicted with work meeting) however I did dedicate a hour before work to complete what I would have worked on during that time, so I still had focus time.
Also I was able to 3 web stories instead of 2.

@Kristina - I had a hard time with pitches too when I was doing sponsored work. One thing that helped me was setting a goal for how many No’s I could get. I know it sounds odd, but it really worked! It helped take the sting out of the no’s and if you get enough no’s you’re bound to get a yes in there somewhere. You can do it!
I got to do more than i planned because instead of recipes i did more articles! I was inspired by the episode with Eating Works from Megan’s podcast and was able to get done more when focusing on writing instead of recipes as they tend to take so much more time.
Thank you Taryn!
I started off all pumped and after I sent my follows ups, I have felt discouraged.
