Staying Focused in the Chaos

5 Steps to Finding Focus - Staying Focus in the Chaos

Entrepreneur bed laptop

Chaos seems to be the new norm and there's no end in sight. With every shortcut that technology gives us it seems to open a door to another task on our to do list and before we know it we're doing a bunch of menial tasks from dawn 'til dusk. But how can someone who wants to live a purposeful life, follow their dreams, run a business, or even just be a decent wife and mom, stay focused on the important in the midst of a hurricane of chaos?


We have to get focused and in all honesty it ain't easy. It's a noisy world and we have hundreds of things vying for our attention every second of the day. The only way to quiet the noise is to not let it in in the first place.

Over the last few years I've become the queen of saying no. I used to be a yes girl. And my instinct still is to say yes. I'm a people pleaser by nature and I really do enjoy giving to and serving others. But the more things I say yes to, the more things I have to...

30 FREE Instagram Story Highlight Covers

Instagram has got to be my favorite social media platforms and the Instagram Story Highlight feature is such a fun addition! It's especially great if you're trying to build your brand by giving new followers a chance to see some of your best content. If you haven't utilized this feature yet, I highly recommend doing so.

Which stories should I highlight?

The stories you choose to highlight are completely up to you but I would suggest starting with the main categories behind your brand. If you're a food blogger, you'll want some highlights of your best recipes. If you're a photographer, you'll want an Instagram story highlight of some of your best work.

For me, my personal brand has many different facets so I have several highlights created and I try to add to them a few times a week.
I've created 30 amazing story covers so you don't have to! Choose between the png files and use them as is, or download the psd. files so that you can edit...

Ultimate Guide to Simplifying Your Closet & Creating a Wardrobe You Love

home life simplicity Feb 05, 2018

As we head into a new season, simplifying your closet and getting rid of the excess that’s keeping it overstuffed might be on your mind. Like I always say, organized clutter is still clutter so before we jump into how to organize your closet, let’s get into the nitty gritty of clearing it out!


Ultimate Guide to Simplifying Your Closet and Creating a wardrobe you love

Does every single item of clothing you own bring you joy? Do you wear each item often and like the way you feel in it? I’m guessing the answer to both of those questions is no.

It’s time to get rid of the things that are weighing you down. Clutter in your home causes clutter in your mind and if I’ve learned anything the last few years, it’s that I am so much more relaxed and happy the more I get rid of stuff.

If you know me, you know I’m a huge believer in working in 15 minute chunks. If you've got a big problem with clutter you'll definitely want to check out my FREE...

5 Steps to setting goals for the Year

5 Steps to setting goals for the New Year

wall calendar

I’ve always been one that loves setting goals each year but up until a few years ago I wasn’t very intentional about writing them down and following through with them. In recent years, I’ve come up with my “word” for the year, written down my goals, and done my best to achieve them.

In 2014, when my business took off, I was thrown into the chaos of running a multiple six figure business with very little experience. I knew nothing about setting sales goals and knowing what quantities to order for each launch. I was barely keeping my head above water to keep things going in the right direction.

Over the last six months I’ve taken a step back or above I guess you could say. I’ve just really paused and tried to get a bird’s eye view of my life as a whole. It’s amazing how much you can discover when you stop and reassess.

This year, Ryan and I set all of our 2018 goals together. He’s...

Optimize Your Instagram Profile Link and Increase Traffic

Optimize Instagram

Are you tired of having to update your Instagram profile link just to have it send traffic to another website? I have the perfect solution to optimize your Instagram profile link and increase traffic to your website at the same time. Since I implemented this solution I have increased my traffic by 70%!

About a month ago, I had been searching for some sort of landing page to send my Instagram followers to and found a pretty popular service that a lot of influencers were using. It was very user friendly and you could update it with links pretty quickly. I set it up in just a few minutes and was excited to start sending people there.

And then it dawned on me. I was sending MY traffic to someone else's site! Umm. No. Why would I send my audience to another site in hopes of them clicking back to my own site or affiliate link?

How many times have you shared a link on Instagram only to share a different one the next day. When a viewer sees your previous post and clicks on...

Just Breathe

family life simplicity Aug 08, 2017

The weight of it all is sometimes too much to bear. Sometimes too much to even catch your breath. When the phone call comes, when the bills pile up, when the report isn’t what you’d hoped, when a loved one’s heart is broken. When your heart is broken. When failure is knocking at the door.

Sometimes it’s all you can do. Just breathe.

But what about those times when it’s not too much to carry and you just keep going and going, forgetting to step away. Forgetting to just breathe and surrender? Saying yes to every opportunity. Saying yes to the endless list of to-dos and errands and business ventures? Those are the times you have to force yourself to breathe.

The last few years have been nothing short of crazy. Our lives were flipped upside down in the best possible way. It didn’t take long for me to realize that even though I was well equipped to carry what God had given me, I still couldn’t do it all and do it all on my own. I had to learn to...

Live Intentionally by Practicing Peace

faith life simplicity May 03, 2017

practice peace

In all the craziness of this world, we hear the word peace so much. We crave it, yet we struggle with anxiety. We are overwhelmed with fear and our lives are consumed with hurriedness. And we fill our schedules and routines with constant busyness to distract ourselves from our own issues. The problem with this lifestyle is that it results in no peace. Zero. Zilch. None. Before you know it, that is the last thing we experience. It's time for a change! We need to live intentionally by practicing peace.

If you are familiar with why I started the Purposeful Planner, you will know that the height of my despair was when I sprawled out on my daughter's bedroom floor crying out for more. My desperate heart didn't want to run the ragged race of the life I was living. I was so done with being exhausted and drained. Ultimately, I wanted more peace for make room for Jesus and the important things that lead to a purposeful life.

I really think that to attain peace in our lives, we have to...

4 Mistakes to Avoid

1. Thinking you have to be a minimalist in order to simplify.

Some people shudder at the thought of simplifying because they think they’ll have to give everything up and live in a tiny house with nothing to their name. This is so far from the truth. Simplifying is letting go of the things we do not love to make room for the things we do. This can be applied to any area of your life and not just your home. Not only can you clear some clutter from your home, but you can clear...

How To Have More Time with Christy Wright

There’s one thing this year, and every year, that most of us would love to have more of. No, not money. That would be nice too, but that’s not it.


When you think about it, you can get more of almost anything you want in life. If you want more money, you can earn it. More stuff, you can buy it. More friends, you can find them. Heck, even hair can be substituted with implants, wigs or extensions!

But no matter who you are or how much money you have, you can’t get more time.

You and I and everyone else on this planet have the exact same amount of time—24 hours in a day. So how we manage it becomes a major factor in our ability to be successful. And while success is defined differently for everyone, there are really only three types of people when it comes to time management:

The Busy Person With No Time

Being busy isn’t a bad thing. This type of person has a lot going on! They have many wonderful responsibilities, relationships and commitments that...
