This challenge has come and gone
Hop on our email list below to be notified about our next Instagram challenge!
It's here: our second Instagram challenge!
And we couldn't be more excited about the topic. After all, the coming weeks often bring the highest stress for solopreneurs in both their work and personal lives (which, we know, are pretty much one and the same). So this time around, we're celebrating #SolopreneurSanity.
Over the course of 18 days, starting on Tuesday, December 1st, we're going to be challenging you to both share a bit of your routine as a solopreneur, while also encouraging you to try potentially new things that'll put you on the (inevitably windy) course to sanity. As you take an inward look and experiment with new things, snap a pic and share with us during the challenge!
Here's what we love to see from you + challenge you to try:
Tuesday, December 1st - Words of wisdom: share your favorite self-care quote or advice
Wednesday, December 2nd - Non-negotiables: share one of the things that is a must-have in your day to maintain your sanity
Thursday, December 3rd - Walk it out: take a walk with no destination
Friday, December 4th - Get physical: show us how you're moving your body
Saturday, December 5th - Meditation station: meditate for 1-5 minutes (or more!) and show us your set up
Sunday, December 6th - Book nerd: show us a book (or two!) that changed your perspective in some way
Monday, December 7th - Pull the plug: fully disconnect for at least 30 minutes
Tuesday, December 8th - Hit the breaks: yep, that's a play on words; take a 15 minute break every 90 minutes today
Wednesday, December 9th - Track that time: for a few hours today, track your time (down to the minute)
Thursday, December 10th - Prioritize that shit: pardon our French; prioritize your to dos based on importance + urgency
Friday, December 11th - Get on it: choose at least one task that lets you work on your biz, rather than just in it
Saturday, December 12th - Eat it: show us the foods that make you feel best
Sunday, December 13th - State of the union: check-in day; share a pic of the song title/lyric that depicts your current state of solopreneur sanity
Monday, December 14th - Focus, focus, focus: plan your day the night before; show us and we'll hold you accountable
Tuesday, December 15th - Bribe yourself: pick a lingering task, get it done, reward yourself
Wednesday, December 16th - Drop it: say no to or break up with something that's not serving you anymore
Thursday, December 17th - Sleep it off: prioritize sleep today (and every day after!)
Friday, December 18th - Pay it forward: volunteer, donate, or give back in some way today
What better way to end? Of course, first we need to begin.
Here's how to participate:
1. Upload a photo to your Instagram account that corresponds to the day’s theme. So, on Tuesday, December 1st, post a photo of your favorite self-care quote, on Monday, December 7th, snap a pic of what you did during your time disconnected (yes, we see the irony on that one), on Tuesday, December 15th, share a photo of how you rewarded yourself, and so on! Miss a day? Don’t worry about it. Jump back in when you can!
2. Include the hashtag #SolopreneurSanity when you upload your photo for the day. It’s the only way we’ll be able to follow along -- and we’ll be re-gramming a few each day from the @OneWomanShop account! (Bonus points for fun captions!)
3. Remember, Instagram is a social network. Be sure to explore the #SolopreneurSanity hashtag and interact with others participating in the challenge. (You might even grow your following in the process!)
Let’s have fun interacting on Instagram while working to improve our #SolopreneurSanity (something we most likely all need) -- what do you say?
This season, it's all about stressing less and appreciating our #SolopreneurSanity more. We can't wait to join you in doing just that!
