Jessica Rodriguez on Identifying Your Top 4 Priorities

Although Jessica refers to "business" in this video, it is completely and absolutely applicable to authors and the "writing business." So, when she says "business," she means your "writing business."

A Message from Jessica Rodriguez on Overcoming Obstacles

A note from Jenn Rodriguez

It's so easy to feel unaccomplished and feeling like another year has gone by without you moving the needle forward in your business and life.


Even though I mostly help female entrepreneurs, everything in this video can be applied to authors as well.


You may feel at times that you’re not where you want to be, but you are where you’re meant to be. It’s about enjoying the journey.



It's possible?!



Why, yes, it is!


By celebrating yourself!

STOP and look back at what you’ve accomplished.


The times you’ve sat down and written one sentence or one page.

Those times you've sent emails to your list about your book.

That one time you went on LIVE and shared your message.

Or the time you actually got up and put pants on instead of being in PJs all day.


No accomplishment is too small!

More often than not, not reaching a certain goal in our business and life can leave us feeling like a failure.


Like, not reaching six-figures in six months or

Not being able to write a book in a matter of days.

If we measure our success by all the things we haven't accomplished, then we'll always look at ourselves as a failure and it will slowly eat away at our self-confidence.


Build and strengthen your confidence throughout the year.

Make it a daily habit.




Well, I'm glad you asked!


  1. Stop comparing yourself to others' idea of “success.”

  2. Take credit for your own success - the time and energy you’ve put into researching,  learning and writing.

  3. Keep a file of all the nice things people have said about your work.

  4. When in doubt, get back in touch with why you started this journey in the first place.

  5. Share your writing with the world and share it often.


These simple yet effective 5 steps will help you build and strengthen your confidence.


Start releasing that doubt and fear that tends to creep in, leaving you paralyzed and unmotivated to keep going.


Own your worth in minutes so that you can start creating the aligned impact you want with your writing and in your life.

Monthly Reflection & Planning

Explain each page of this section.

Section 1 - Reflections and Priorities

Section 2 - Using the Monthly Social Media Plan

Section 3 - Collaboration, Advertising, and Weekly Planner

Why do I include "water intake" and health goals in this planner?

In the modern age of information, we all "know" that we should be staying hydrated and eating a healthy diet. But why should we be doing those things? Well, it's definitely not meant just to cave to social pressure. As writers, brain health is truly critical to every part of our process.


In this journal, I wanted to share ways with you some ways that you can get on the road to improved cognitive function if you're not already operating at your peak. I hope you enjoy the video below, provided by Yuliya Chernykhovskaya, the founder of NeuroBox
