The November 2017 Checklist

I can’t believe October is almost over! This was by far the best month for my business and I hope to keep up the momentum for the rest of the year! Here are my goals for November!

November Goals:

  1. Use RunKeeper and run 2-4 times per week.
  2. Join a New York Road Runners training group.
  3. Write at least 5 Forbes articles.
  4. Send new article pitches.
  5. Straighten or blowdry my hair so it’s always polished-ish. (If anyone has tips and product recommendations for taming frizzy hair please let me know!)
  6. Wear my contacts and put on makeup most days of the week.
  7. Go to at least one event at The Wing.
  8. Start writing book reviews again and start one new post series.
  9. Use my planner for a month.
  10. Publish Elana Lyn posts two or three times a week.

And here’s how I did last month:
