Kids are back in school – some are lucky enough to go back after Labor Day instead of in early August like they do here in Georgia. I was never a big fan of the early start and what felt like too short of a summer with my 4 darlings.
September is the month that feels like a fresh start for kids and for parents as we get back to routines. It’s also back to school in business for many entrepreneurs.
For us at PPO Studio after our brand refresh and new website, we used our summer months to launch PPO Insider and take some time for vacation ourselves. We knew that after Labor Day, we’d get back to connecting and engaging with photo organizers.
The first order of business for us is to get back to blogging!
Some say that blogging is so “old school” and the “cool kids” are doing videos on Facebook Live and Instagram Stories is the place to be.
Being that I’ve never been a “cool kid” and I still read books that you can hold (and on my iPad – I do embrace technology but also love to unplug whenever possible), I like to be a bit of a rebel though Gretchen Rubin’s 4 tendencies quiz say I’m a questioner.
Side note: Take the quiz – it’s fun, gives you some useful insight about yourself. I made my whole family take it and then we played a little game to guess what each person’s personality is. My idea of fun. 😉
Back to blogging and why we still have a blog as part of our overall business strategy. We connect through stories. In our business as photo organizers. And in our training business helping people with their photo organizing business.
When we learn about each other through our stories, we can help each other. Let’s do more of that.
What’s your story for this season of your business?

Ok, I took the test and I’m an obliger. Totally makes sense why I’m struggling with my business right now – without accountability, I tend to not do things, even when I know it’s in my best interest.
Lisa, I love watching your business take shape (mostly through facebook!) and I’m inspired to gain momentum as well. I’m trying to add blogging to help connect me with others, but the biggest fear I have is dropping the ball. I’m definitely going to find an accountability partner!
Anne, I love your commitment to finding an accountability partner. Here are a couple of tips:
1) Know what you need
2) Make it a priority
3) Have some sort of accountability tracking system
Good luck and let us know how it goes. You should also check out PPO Insider we have a monthly Q & A call and an active and supportive community group.
Isn’t that funny, I would have said I was a rebel too. But the quiz says I’m a questioner 🙂
September story for us is MOMENTUM. With structure and foundation in place, how do we build momentum and move closer to our goals? Our summer has been filled with tech and content writing, and now we want to start pulling all the pieces together.
Maybe as questioners we like to think of ourselves as rebels? 😂
Love that word momentum and that is part of your story this month! Can’t wait to see how it all comes together for you and your daughter!
