What are your metrics for success? Is it page views? The number of followers on Instagram?

If you meet those numbers, will you be happy? It’s easy to imagine that is the case, but that kind of situation is an external validation. What if you are the definition of success just as you are?

Stop your limiting thoughts and find your own drummer to dance to. That’s the theme of today’s FriChats discussion.

Check back with us each Friday to get your FriChat on!

In case you’re curious, here’s how we feel about Fridays.

Today Cara Ansis and Marly McMillen are talking about Editorial Planning on FriChats...because it's Friday!

Here are some of our favorite quotes from today’s episode:

It's ok to have a plan, work the plan, but I don't have to do all of the plan today. #frichats #choppedpodcast Share on X The beauty of having a calendar is having an idea of where you're going. #frichats Share on X When you have a plan, Resistance has less power in you. #frichats #choppedcon Share on X A plan gets me so excited about what's coming up. #choppedcon #frichats Share on X As bloggers, we are artists. #frichats #choppedpodcast Share on X There's a fine line between doing what's trendy vs. doing things because you genuinely love it. #frichats #choppedpodcast Share on X Eat what brings you joy, buy the things that give you joy, wear the things that give you joy, and create content that gives you joy. #frichats #choppedpodcast Share on X I base what I do based on the lower hanging fruit. #frichats Share on X Sometimes what's inspiring in the moment that you're planning is not always inspiring in the moment that you're doing. #frichats #choppedcon Share on X
