Winning a pitch event and gaining ng access to a years worth of paid co-working space as the prize was what kicked off one of the biggest parts of my journey with #prontobottle. It not only allowed me to feel supported in my journey, but allowed me to build my network of professional like minded people really quickly! In a first ever @weareoneroof now offer a virtual only co-working experience, with events, coffee catchups, meditation, industry speakers and accountability sessions... at the fraction of the cost of a physical location... and hey, we’re all still working from home so why not still get all the perks of a coworking space in your home office?
Well January is almost over folks and I’m wondering if you, like me, have barely gotten over 2020 yet? I still can’t believe what an epic year it was... the craziness of COVID... the difficulty of raising funds... the uncertainty of whether or not I would have a company to even run... So if there was anything I took from last year it was the sheer damned tenacity I could apply to my work and also that which I saw from those around me! It didn’t matter whether is was my parent friends, fellow colleagues, mentors, inspirational people I looked up to, leaders or community at large... I’d say EVERYONE showed an outrageous amount of tenacity to get through last year... so I hope you stop and appreciate yourself for a minute ✨ Well done! Oh and congratulations 🥳 1 month down, 11 months to go 🗓 #prontobottle #smartsafesustainableparenting #liberationfromthemundane
Did you have a New Years resolution for this year? As I took time off work over the holidays, I spent it resetting myself. I knew that I wanted to set a calm, centred, ground base for my next year and would honestly need to reset my morning and nighttime routine to do so. So over the holidays I set out time 3 mornings a week to do breath work, meditate and complete a round of stretching and strengthening exercises. 4 weeks into it now I have added in journaling for my work day and am completing my new morning routine every morning. For my meditation I’m using the @relaxmelodies app, with the “visionary morning meditation” and a set of my own sounds and music mix in the background it’s a short 13 minute meditation that helps me to visualise the tasks I want to complete for the day, and imagine how I want to feel doing it 🧠✨ For the stretching and strengthening exercises I’m using the “Upper Body Mobility” teachings from @karindimitrovova 🧎♀️ Then for my journaling practice, I’m taking the tasks I had vision for in my meditation and plan them out in my new @leadersinheels diary 📔 I’ve found that 4 weeks in now, even if I wake up sore in the morning, my body is less rigid after the stretching. The mediation and journaling is a good way to keep reaffirming what I want to achieve for the day, and really helps to set a calm tone to start off with and the mood for the rest of the day... hopefully... my 4 year old hasn’t woken up yet 🤣 I’m still working on my night time routine, reducing alcohol intake 🍷 and having a cup of tea 🍵 and herbal sleep remedy to help me drift off 🌿 😴... I’m only two days into this and am finding it very difficult to fall asleep and to stay asleep... hence the 5am, instead of 7am, meditation start 🧘♀️ I’ve also set a timeline to have this routine set by - 3 months time - and a reward for having achieved it, that’s related to the practice- a new set of gym clothes, and sharing it with you is holding me accountable to it... I first read about this practice from @timferriss in the #4hourbody book 📖 and have heard it multiple times since What new routine have you set out for yourself this year?
#prontobottle’s feature on @sunriseon7 this morning. We chatted more about how we’ve just closed our crowdsourced funding round but are still offering sophisticated investors an opportunity in Pronto, which will get us to tooling and manufacturing. Exciting to see some of the other businesses featured too.
