The Bright Recap - Take time off as an entrepreneur & other tips 🌞
Updated: Feb 24
It's been a great week and I'm excited to share it all with you!
As a conscious communicator, I help purpose-driven brands share their stories and create inspiring content. I've decided to reshare the work that I do with my clients here... I think you will find it quite interesting, too! I'll also share other tips or learnings that have helped me as an entrepreneur, too.
I hope you enjoy this new format. ✨
How to take a day off as an entrepreneur
I started my week with a day off! I usually forget about the official Holidays. I don't have them on my planner (which is going to change!) so I just go on to work while my friends are off reminding me that if I were working as an employee, I would be off, too.
I usually realize it when it's too late to take it off. By then, I already have too many things planned for the day and taking it off would just overwhelm me more.
Do you know the feeling?
But this week was different. 🤗
Monday was President's Day. And I decided to enjoy this holiday, too. I took the decision two weeks ago. I put it in my calendar and didn't schedule any meetings that day nor added any items on my to-do list for that Monday.
Mmmh. Yupp apparently it's that simple! Plan it ahead of time and you'll see it will all work out smoothly. You'll find ways to get your work done before that day and most likely even get a little extra kick of motivation because you'll be excited to have a 3-day weekend.
✨ So what's the next day off you want to take? Plan it in your calendar now and make it happen! It can be an official holiday or any random day, cause that's the beauty of being an entrepreneur and your own boss! 🤗
Sometimes Mondays are meant to be spent at the beach, and it's perfectly fine! 🤗
How To Best Market Socially Conscious Brands in 2021
I had the pleasure to talk to Choobs - a marketplace for socially conscious brands - about conscious marketing. Answering his questions was also a great way to reflect on the reasons I do what I do, how I ended up in this field and the importance of conscious marketing today.
Go read the full interview here.
I realized that companies can make a difference if they choose to. You can be profitable and still make a positive social difference. It really is up to you.
Inspirations from my clients
I help purpose-driven companies create content that is aligned with their brand and mission. The goal is to share interesting and inspiring information related to their field of expertise.
Here are the highlights of the week:

Do you have a conscious business? Do you have many ideas and things you want to share but you seem to run out of time to do it? Message me and let's talk about it! The world needs to learn from you. Let's get your content out and Share Your Bright Side. 🌞
Investing in my business is very important and rewarding. This week, I started a Pinterest workshop with Le Citron Rose. I've been learning more and more about this "non-social media" and how I can best use it to help my brand and my clients. I'm excited to keep expanding my knowledge on it and use it to its maximal potential.
I've started working on a new project for Share Your Bright Side. Because life is busy and it can be hard to find the time to explore new ideas, I found myself an accountability partner! At the end of the week, we check in on each other's business, our goals for the week, if we accomplished them and how we can improve if we haven't. We also set new goals for the new week. It makes a real difference!
If you are struggling to start a new project, I recommend you find someone who can hold you accountable. It's also a lot more fun to be able to share it with someone else!
> I finished the book: The Power of My Subconscious Mind and absolutely loved it. I'm already ready to reread all my highlighted notes (pretty much the entire book...). It's been so interesting to learn about this magical tool we all have inside us!
> I listened to the summary of Green Lights by Matthew Mcconaghey on Blinkist. I've always liked him as an actor and now I like him even more! I had no idea about his personal view of the world. That was actually pretty in alignment with The Power of My Subconscious Mind.
Do you know about Blinkist? Read or listen to the key ideas from bestselling nonfiction in 15 minutes only. It's like a mini-podcast based on a book.
> I also started a new book called Pussy. It's about women's empowerment. It's about reclaiming our power. It's about celebrating the magic of our pussy instead of being ashamed of it. So far, I'm loving it!
Follow me on Instagram ShareYourBrightSide for conscious marketing and living tips and inspiration.
That's all for this week! I'm looking forward to a new week full of fresh opportunities.
Take a second to reflect on the last 7 days. Celebrate the wins and learn from the struggles. It is quite liberating! ✨
