WRITE DOWN YOUR PLANS - Richard branson the CEO of Virgin Atlantic use to say If you don't write it down, your ideas will get lost. Write down your ideas and you will make them happen.Ever since I started using Planners, such as the cassiedaves blog planner and the Accelerate your dreams Power planner, I have been getting things right. The first step to getting things done, is to WRITE IT DOWN, you know that feeling that comes from stumbling on stuffs you have written and you are just overwhelmed at the passion you have. The Power planner is perfect for Creatives, It contains everything you need to plan and execute your daily, weekly and monthly goals. You can visit @accelerateyourdreams02 on Instagram to order yours.
SERVE AS AN INTERN - If you have a passion for something or a particular field of interest like sewing, catering, interior decoration e.t.c, then look for successful people in that field serve as an intern with them. I am very much interested in Broadcast Journalism, I have been going for trainings and mentorship programs, I am currently applying to serve as an intern in a media TV station. You are never too old to serve or learn!
NETWORK - Once in a while, attend events relevant to your field of interest, join a walk for a good course like health, even if you need to pay for it. It will be worth it in the end. meet people, discuss and learn, by so doing you are building your potential clients, advertisers and business partners.
COMMUNITY SOCIAL SERVICE - This is service to humanity, Try to identify with your community and help in any way you can. I like to teach skills in computer and hand crafts to children on holidays, I like visit the motherless homes with my friends, I have visited the prison once, I have also joined to plant trees to save the earth, I am looking forward to travel on a trip with a group of people. I derive so much joy and fulfillment from doing this.
