It’s the first day of the New Year and I wonder if you have this New Year’s resolutions at the ready?
Who knows what it is about the turning of the planet that gets us so hyped up.
But what is for certain is that you feel like you get a little extra boost in the motivation department to make a change in your life.
A change for good.
Here are some quick ideas to get you started on this bank holiday and the first day of the year.
I am going to talk honestly about the struggles that I face as a solopreneur and how I am overcoming them.
This is potentially a new series I am going to be creating, either monthly or weekly, depending on both how feasible it is and how much interest you have in it. For now, I am going to keep it to monthly updates and see how we go.
Firstly, I will go over a little bit about me, if you don’t know where I am coming from on this.
Hi there, my name is Cat Garrett and I am a 24-year-old solopreneur. I have worked several stable 9 to 5 jobs since graduating university in 2014, where I studied animation. However, none of them were really meant to be. None of them clicked.
Now, I find myself as a solopreneur, wearing all of the hats and doing all of the work. I take full ownership of every success and every failure.
This month, even this past week, I have had many struggles which I have had to overcome.

Sometimes, dealing with stress is just hard. We all have times when we feel frazzled: worried that we haven’t done enough; we aren’t moving in the right direction or if we are doing the right things, and then stress out from our perception of how well (or not) we are doing.
I may be no blogging expert just yet, but that doesn’t mean I don’t thoroughly enjoy it. While I still have a lot to learn about creating useful and engaging content, here are some simple reasons I continue to love blogging.
What do you do when you work with your hands – and then develop RSI? The best thing you can do is to prevent and treat RSI as quickly as you can. Let me tell you how.
In keeping with the theme of having an amazing day off, I’d like to take a moment to talk about my amazing and chill weekend.
I am a recent and avid believer that downtime is essential. Before, I did understand this in theory. Of course, I am very hard-core about whatever I do generally and tend to dive into things head first. (Like that time on that one water slide: I fell through the hole into the plunge pool…head first. Oh. My. Days.)
Taking a day off gives you some much-needed downtime. Just as your body needs sleep – your heart rate drops allowing your heart a much-needed breather in order to function fully the next day – you as a person need to go at a slower pace of life at least one day each and every week.
Your imagination, inspirations and overall mental capacity needs time to slow down and collect itself.
Repair missing motivation. Refresh your mental, spiritual, emotional, even your physical reservoirs. This enables you to reload your ambitions for your most successful week yet.
In life, there are always things that we want to achieve. Whether it’s a pay raise, establishing your own business, going on holiday, being healthier or more active in the community. In order to achieve them, we write goals. Let’s talk about how you can write goals that work for you.
Ever have somewhere to be but end up taking forever to get ready before you go – no matter how much you rush? If you are anything like me, this is the usual morning struggle. Leaving in 10 minutes but spend another 20 getting yourself together. This can be stressful and wear you out in the long run, but the one room rule can solve this.
With spring here, soon to ebb into summer, it’s a perfect time to use the morning sunshine to help you live better. Here’s how. (more…)
