Top Tip from Faye
Figure out your niche and target market, and get detailed.
What does your typical day look like?
Faye is very fast pace, high energy type of gal and now she is trying to get through the day 'with grace and ease'.
Faye spends time before and after drop off solely with her children, once they are dropped off, the first thing she dives into in Marketing, content creating. Things that are directly related to generating income.
In the afternoon she does webinars and client meetings.
The best advice you have received
Faye is a recovering perfectionist. Perfect doesn't exist, calm the farm and pick progress over perfection.

If you cook, what recipes can you share / meal prep tips
Faye trains with F45 and for the first 8 weeks of the year, they had a meal plan and that has continued on to that. Batch cooking on a Sunday, and they stay away from higher carbs.
Kids will have pastas and rice still.
What 1 area of your life would you like to improve
Slow down and not live in a hectic pace.
What’s the one thing you do each day (like a hack) that makes your life run smoother?
Faye always, without fail, plans her day the night before, block time in her diary so that she knows what she is doing and when, and stick to it. Productivity is ‘Faye's thing’ and this helps her achieve significantly more - in a more calm and controlled manner!
