(Well, that's what the calendar says. There's still snow here in Minnesota!) I'm hearing rumors of flowers blooming and birds chirping in other parts of the country so in full faith I'm believing it's on it's way here, too!
If you're like me, this time of year prompts me to make new chore charts for the kids and clean out my closet and organize my laundry room! Spring fever is here and hibernation is over! No more screen time! Let's get outside, walk, breathe, and get ready for the spring and summer rush in my business! Whoo hoo!
How can you leverage this time and energy? Here are a couple tips for your life and business:
1. Clean off your desk. Throw away those papers you don't need. Make space for the new. Put that stuff away in a closet. Can you see the surface of your desk? The carpet on the floor? Is it time to buy some file folders? A new binder? A new notebook? Don't go super crazy, but just take some time to get OFF your computer and make things a little more organized. You'll be able to think more clearly and the physical space will allow room for new clients in your life.
2. Clean up your calendar. What needs to go? What can you let go of? What obligations can you release? What day of the week can you designate to work ON your business instead of doing client work? I love Fridays. I watch video trainings, listen to training calls, do a networking coffee or lunch, and just BREATHE. I try not to schedule calls or coaching and I don't go to my studio. It's a time for me to catch my breath and reset before a new week.
3. Clean up your bedroom. I don't know about you, but the rest of the house can be messy, but my bedroom is my oasis. Currently, I'm focusing on my closet. Time to purge, throw away, organize, and install some new shelves! I'll be showing you the progress on Instagram, so come find me over there!
I'd love to hear what YOU are up to this Spring! Shoot me an email or message and let me know what your goals are! I'd love to hear from you!
Come Hang Out With Us!
For the first time ever, Chris and I recorded our first FB Live show! We've been talking about doing this for years and we finally did it! Chris comes alive on camera (well, so do I!) so it's a lot of fun! We'll be going live every Wednesday on Facebook around 11:30am Central and I'll post the recording on YouTube, too. So you can subscribe over there and you won't miss anything!
We will be discussing current business trends, marketing failures and successes, and life with a big(ish) family!
(We like slightly controversial issues, so come join the conversation and give us your two cents!)
Music Academy Success Conference!
Attention Music Studio Owners!
Come see us LIVE and in-person at the MASS conference in Dallas in April! We will have a Never Alone booth and be available to chat with YOU about all your marketing goals! Come say HI and grab some SWAG (seriously, the swag is awesome).

For Moms who homeschool and own a company...
If you're like me, you're feeling the weight of your family and home on your shoulders every day. Maybe you're struggling to figure out when to work and when to have time for the kids. This week, I recorded two videos for you. I want to encourage you that you CAN work and homeschool and do it with freedom and grace. Check out the videos and let me know if you gleaned any ideas or encouragement from them! Can't wait to hear from you.
(This was a little vulnerable for me to do, so please give me grace. And if this message doesn't resonate with your life, well, just scroll on.)
