It was the beginning of this year that I decided I was going to begin building my own wellness business. I decided I was no longer going to work 40+ hours a week making a little over minimum wage. I knew there was something more for me so I decided to check out blogging.

I began my search and realized there was so much to it. Branding, logos, social media, affiliate marketing, influencing, monetizing, WordPress, the list goes on…

I felt like I was drowning in a to-do list…

But that is when I realized that since this is going to be my new business, I need to treat it like a business.

So, I began with the correct mindset. Without it, I wouldn’t be where I am today with my business.

Mindset

Having the correct mindset is important for success in life. If I didn’t have it then I don’t know how I would’ve made it through the first two months of growing my brand.

I know things can get scary throughout the start-up of a business. I learned that I must take risks and get out of my comfort zone. In order, to be lead to bigger opportunities and to grow.

Goals/Specialty

I then had to sit down and think about what I wanted to do with this wellness business. I have many interests in topics but decided that I will focus on personal development. Since I have a passion for this, I made my goal to help others improve themselves each day. Within my wellness business, I came up with ideas on how to challenge my readers to strive to become the best individuals that they can be.

Get out there!

My next step was to get out there. People were not just going to search “1dayat-atime.com” on there own so I had to figure out a way to get them there. I did this by posting on social media, starting an email list, and then joining muses to begin collaborating with brands! By using these different ways to get my company name out there has really had a strong effect on it.

I have seen my analytics and internet presence grow so much over this time. Especially since I started using muses since my audience was expanded from other brands as well!

Even though I am still new to this business and have only done this for a couple months. I can totally share with you that it is such a big passion of mine. I am so excited to see where this wellness business goes and where it brings me!

Another way that I am going to be growing my wellness business and brand is by doing an upcoming giveaway! I will be giving away products to a certain winner that participates in the drawing. So keep an eye out on my instagram 1dayatatime_insta, so that you don’t miss it!
