Weekly Mompreneur Checklist

Photo by Karolina Grabowska on Pexels.com

I’ve started noticing that many of my clients and the people in my circle are seemingly more entrepreneur-based than ever. Mompreneurs who work from home with littles on their hips, side-hustlers, and those just starting up. I’ve also noticed that it seems like we can never keep up with our goals or ever get them from our dreams and onto paper- so I wanted to create a solution for just that. As someone who loves lists and is very goal oriented, this tool is incredibly helpful for me in my day to day as a parent and as a business owner. I bring you: The Weekly Mompreneur Checklist.

What’s In It?

  • MAIN MESSAGE

At the start of each week, determine the focal message that you’re planning to share with your audience. Remember to tie into your monthly promotions, themes, seasons, etc. This will likely resonate with at least one of your weekly blog posts, but will also be present in your content posted to social media channels & in your e-mail blast.

For me, personally, I like to keep my focal message LARGE and in sight to ensure it stands out on the page while I’m working.

  • GOALS FOR THE WEEK:

Who doesn’t love lists? Remember to keep your goals to attainable, reachable goals for a one -week period. I suggest no more than 3 goals per week! Having longer lists can be helpful for long-term goals but overwhelming when looking at your immediate needs. This list is intended to be your ABSOLUTES for the week. Choose your top three and then select your most important goal and put it on the line with the star.

Having a short, attainable list of things-to-do each week will help to accomplish those pesky tasks and keep you motivated as you progress.

  • RESEARCH

We all know that with owning your own biz comes lots of research + learning. In order to become a master of a product, you need to trial it and dig deeper before sharing it with your name on it! Use this section to narrow down the topics you are researching this week! Be specific.

  • SUBSCRIBER EMAILS

What do you want your subscribers and community to learn from you this week? Make sure to include the topics within your email headings and connect it to your social media accounts. Write the plan down here to hold yourself accountable!

  • SOCIAL MEDIA

Oh, the algorithms. Consistency is still the key to success for business platforms on social media. Make a plan for how often you will be posting and what you are planning to discuss. Stay tuned for a 30-Day Social Media Calendar! Don’t forget to be personal with your postings- your followers are also following you while they follow your business. Spend time curating posts that truly represent you and your brand, while getting the reach in your audience that you need. Mark the posts off as they are scheduled.

  • BLOG POSTS

This section is an At-A-Glance look at what you’ve got planned for content this week. It is a great place to keep track of what extras will go within each post, at a high level. It helps to keep this in one place, so you can mark off the additional items as you place them within your posts. This is the meat and potatoes of your business- don’t skimp on the details!

  • NOTES

The notes section is intended to encompass any other details or reminders you need for the week. Use it to brainstorm, for reminders, additional e-mails that need to be sent, or client referrals.

  • HOW TO:

Here’s how I use this helpful tool each week. Let me know in the comments how you use it for your own needs!

  • Download and Print out the checklist. This one’s in bold because it is the HARDEST but MOST IMPORTANT STEP!
  • Carve out 30 mins or less at the beginning of each week to make my plan
  • Keep the checklist close to my work space for making easy changes and keeping on task
  • Begin tackling tasks on checklist!
  • Review at end of week and address any unmet tasks

I hope that this checklist becomes helpful for you! Please comment below when you download and let me know how it works for your blogging business!

Happy Fall, everyone!
I JUST posted my upcoming Fall Mini sessions yesterday over hereΒ  and cannot wait to get moving with them. Fall is such a FUN time of year! My favorite is to watch the colors change- I can’t get enough of the oranges, yellows and reds! While we are gearing up for our Fall Minis, I thought about some of the questions that I receive.. over and over and over again with family photos: What do we wear?! And I thought I’d break that down for you!
Q: What colors do we choose?
A: Match your scenery. No, I don’t mean show up in a shirt with clouds embroidered on- but I mean think about the season you are in- if it’s summer, bright and bold is more common and fits better. If it’s fall, earth tones are a great option. Here’s a good palette for fall:
35c0a353881f6272a41b1f79cfdfed74
Q: How much do we match?
A: As much as you want πŸ˜‰
My favorite thing is to tell families to pick 1-3 colors and to have everyone wear their own variety of those selected. In the palette above, you could choose any segment of colors and pick a few of your favorites. I LOVE it when there is a variety! Here’s my family’s photos from 2018- All in blue, but sporting styles that fit our own bodies and personalities. DSC_1058.jpg
Q: WHERE do we shop?!
A: I suggest you find a store that can accommodate the WHOLE family, so you don’t have to drive all around town for one photo! OR shop online. You can find one staple item online and use it while you shop for your other family members. If you are wanting to match perfectly, MAKE SURE you pay attention to the actual color name. If it’s called “Cobalt Blue”, go to that website’s search bar and input “Cobalt Blue” and everything in the store’s inventory that includes that color will populate! It makes shopping EASY. It doesn’t always populate as the “main” color in the item, but will help to keep that color constant and tie it all together.
If you have a larger family like me (the photo above is missing at least 3 people…), you may need to choose 2 or 3 colors like we talked about before πŸ™‚
Last but not least- buy a lot. Buy all things Cobalt Blue and take them home with you. Spend extra. Try them all on, mix up the outfits and keep them on hand until your shoot is OVER… that way, last minute changes can be made, an impromptu outfit change can occur.. and then return the unused items!
Q: Where do we book?
A: Well, since you ask… shoot me an e-mail at emilywoodruffphotography@gmail.com to set up your session!


I hope this was helpful! Keep the questions coming my way!

[Spring Review]

I’ve been away for a little while and want to catch you up on my latest adventures! I have really been focusing on honing in on what types of photography I am passionate about and trying to invest in those areas more this year than ever. I am so excited to have the property that my family lives on now, to accommodate your family sessions, engagements, senior photos and all of the other wonderful occasions we meander outside for. I can’t wait to explore more of this land and have more areas available for your use!
