4 Things - November 2020

On the 4th Tuesday of each month, I'm here to tell you 4 NEW things about myself. Lots of 4s because that's my favorite number. 

This month is a lot of shamless plugs. I have kept alot of these ideas to myself, and not talked about it until I was 100% perfect ready. Well, 1-It's never going to be perfect. and 2-I'll never be 100% ready. I finished the book High Performance Habits by Brendon Burchard. I'll probably read this book again very soon, but there is a part of the book where he asked one of his clients. When did you feel like you were the most successful? They responded with when I told people about my goals. Yeah, every village has the idiots who are going to tell you it sucks. But there will be enough village leaders who want you to succeed. 

This also goes along with my thought process of There is enough room for everyone at the table. Come have a sit. Let's talk and grow for each other. I'm sure there are ways to we can even collaborate with each other. I have been in enough situations the competition of putting each other down is exhausting. It also just puts me in a horrible headspace which isn't my best or authentic self. 

Jessa Olson Training

I am FINALLY branching out and taking clients. I do personal training - both online and in person if you are local. I do small group training - you and 3 of your friends. I teach group fitness class at various places around the Modesto area. Message me and I'll give you all the deets. 

Virtually I use the app WeStrive to write your workouts and communication. The way that I train is through a whole health mentality. We focus on the fitness aspect, but also nutrition and mindset. I help take what you are doing now, and make minor changes to where you want to go. My favorite tool is the 5 minute habit. pick one habit and do that for 2 weeks. 

Jessa Olson Wellness/Freelance

This is my blog and freelance writing. I have always been a writer. I grew up with so many journals. Growing up, I though about doing Photojournalism as a major. I wanted to write and take pictures for nature and architecture. I was meant to be a travel writer. 

The plan for my website is to be a place for fitness, wellness, and lifestyle. I want to write about fitness workouts, reviews, and educational pieces. For wellness I want to cover mindset to holistic treatments. Lifestyle is anything not in those topics. 

My big goal for freelance is to one day write for Popsugar or Self. I want to write for those exercising. Not other fitness professionals. I wouldn't turn anything down, but I want to stay in with helping people reach their lifestyle goals. 

Jessa Olson Photography

Right now, it's an instagram page. I'm posting pictures I have taken from my Iphone and past Iphones. I don't have a camera yet, but it is one of my goals in the next few years. 

Long term I am really interested in turning it into a travel blog. I'm taking day by day for the moment. Photography has always been a passion of mine. I still remember my first camera. It was a little pink camera you dropped the film in and had to push until it stopped. I remember making my family pose while I take their picture. 

I looking at adding my pictures into stock picture places, and a few places to sell my pictures. 

Pearls and Stitches Co

I actually started this one 7 years when we were living in Arizona. A blogger friend mentioned that I should start my own shop. I decided to sell elastic hairties and crocheted products. I only did it for a short time then shut down the shop. I really miss that shop and sad that I didn't have a real plan behind it. I think I could have done a lot of good with that. 

I also think that I would have elevated my knitting and crocheting game up. I really love to crochet, but don't make the time for it. It's always the first thing that is pushed to the side. I'm really excited to relaunch this shop.

November Goals

October was a good month. I really feel like things are getting back to as normal as possible. I am really looking forward to a day when things go back to normal. I need to keep a better journal of what is going on because I can't really remember much of October. I know I worked and picked up the house, but that's all I can remember. 

In October I want to accomplish: 

  • Workout: Strength Training 3x/week and Cardio 3x/week with Saturday as a active recovery day. Cardio is going to be Couch to 5K.
    • FAILED!! Most of my workouts have been classes that I teach. I really need to get in a better workout routine for myself. 
  • Financial Budget: More in control of finances by checking it our money weekly. 
    • DONE!! I have been much more conscience of what I spend my money on. I have been meal planning and prepping the night before on days I work early. 
  • Blog 12x this month: Monday is Wellness, Wednesday is Workout, and Friday is Lifestyle. 
    • FAILED!! I want to write and blog, but every time I sit down I get either so overwhelmed or don't know what to write about.
  • Powersheets: Fill every line with something to accomplish and at the end of the month it filled out whether or not I complete it. 
    • FAILED!! I have given up on powersheets again. I don't know why, but I don't make the time to sit down and write everything out. I love the concept and really want to be able to stick with it, but I don't! 
  • Everything be launched: Everything in the “secret project” I talked about on Instagram be launched and done. (Not perfect but done)
    • DONE!! Everything is launched! Not in the way I wanted, but I'm glad that it's out there more than anything else. 
In November I want to accomplish:
  • Meal Plan and Prep Every Sunday
  • Financial Budget
  • Get Organized with systems in place
  • Close all my rings on my apple watch 5 days a week
I really feel like life is passing me by. I don't feel like I am living my life. I enjoy all the things that I am doing, but sometimes I just feel blah. I don't really know how to explain it. This year has not been the year that I was hoping or expected to be, but I don't think anyone could have predicted this. I'm trying to finish strong!
