Happy October everyone! The realisation that there are only three months to the end of the year hit me like a bullet train out of a tunnel today. I love thinking about how much I’ve achieved already this year and all the exciting things are are still to come.
September was an awesome month for me. I certainly feel like I got some traction on this blog and my freelance writing business as well. My goal for the month was to write some guest posts for other blogs and I ended up writing and submitting two. They’re here and here in case you missed them.
My other goal was to build up my writing profile. I’m currently working on my writer site and have been actively looking for freelance writing gigs. It’s early days, but I found one client during the month who loved a blog post I wrote for them and it looks like that’ll turn into a regular gig.
Looking at my calendar for this month I can already see things are going to be a bit crazy. I’ve got a stall booked for my business at a salsa festival one weekend, and I’m hosting a fundraiser on another. I’m training in three performance teams as well. Not to mention planning a trip to India. Good thing I love being busy!
This month my goals are to submit at least two more guest posts. I love writing them and interacting with other bloggers and their readers so I want to keep up the pace on this.
I also want to land at least one ongoing writing client, and two ad hoc jobs. This’ll mean a lot of prospecting, but the more I write the more confident I become in my own skills and what I can offer clients.
What are your goals for October?
