But enough about that! Today, I’m sharing with you my blogging, life, and business goals for the month of September. Feel free to share yours in the comments below or write about them on your own blog and leave me a link! I’d love to see what you all are hoping to accomplish in September.
1. Enjoy my birthday.
As I’m only days away from turning 27, I want to make sure I put work aside for a change and fully enjoy my birthday. Even better, Monday is a holiday so I’ll have a long weekend leading up to my birthday. Perfect, right? The celebration begins on Friday with a girls night and I can’t wait!
2. Get back on Periscope.
It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a broadcast on Periscope, but I absolutely love the platform. It’s such a great way to connect with people and grow your audience. But the truth is, the idea of going live still makes me a little nervous. This month, I want to finally overcome that by getting back on Periscope and (hopefully) broadcasting regularly. I really think it will be a great way to get back into video content and build a stronger relationship with my readers. If you want to follow me on Periscope, my username is @redheadrachel!

3. Give The Haute Notes a facelift.
I am the absolute worst when it comes to sticking with a website design. So, it’s probably a good thing I’ve never worked with a designer to create the look of my blog. I’ve always purchased themes for my websites because they’re affordable and easy to DIY. But the problem is, whenever I see a new design that I like better than mine, I have to have it! In fact, since I launched The Haute Notes in 2013, this site has had five different designs. Maybe that doesn’t sound so bad?? This month, the site is either getting a major facelift or a minor one. I haven’t decided yet. You’ll just have to wait and see! 🙂
Last Month’s Goals:
I also want to take a minute to review last month’s goals to see how I progressed with those. Fingers crossed I accomplished all of them and that you accomplished all of yours, too!
- Launch a challenge. I did, in fact, launch another challenge last month! After the success of the 30 Day Blogging Challenge, I wanted to create a new challenge as a way to announce my brand new course, Socially Coveted. It was a lot of fun doing a 5-day social media challenge and I can’t wait to do another one in the future!
- Get back into reading. So, I didn’t fully commit to this goal. I did get some reading done though! I need to get back into Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, but I’m currently reading Light is the New Black by Rebecca Campbell. I’m absolutely loving the positive vibes this book is giving me and how much it’s gotten me thinking.
- Create a new freebie for the library. Check this one off the list! I created a freebie that was all about eight ways to grow your email list and a few strategies I’ve used successfully. If you want to check it out, all you have to do is sign up for The Haute Notes Library.
