5 WAYS TO FALL IN LOVE WITH MONDAY!

Many people think that Monday is the worst day of the week . Monday has a bad reputation, but, believe me, the first day of the week can be awesome. It is possible to love Mondays and make the whole week much more fulfilling.

  1. Do what you love. After the weekend, you will feel energised to face new challenges, meet interesting people. When you feel excited about what you are doing every day brings you closer to achieving your goals.
  2. Make a fresh start. Treat Monday like a New Year’s day which comes every week. It feels like a fresh start, a perfect day for trying something new. Monday gives you a blank page to write a story of this week.
  3. Wake up with a smile. That really works! Smiling gives a signal to your brain that something good is happening and it’s definitely is.
  4. Share your positive attitude. The more we share, the more we get ourselves. By being nice to people who surround you, you’ll make their Monday better. Smile, encourage, help others and it will make you feel good vibes.
  5. Write down your priorities. It’s a start of the week and we want to do everything at once, sometimes more things than we are capable of. That’s why it’s so important to write down your Monday priorities in advance. Scientists proved that taking notes by hands is better for long-term comprehension, so don’t forget to write all important things in your notebook. You may find helpful doing it on Friday and then just add some points or just relax during a weekend. It is very important to have a decent tool for that. If you have your own business or thinking of starting one check monday. entrepreneur’s notebook. which is now available for pre-order (http://igg.me/at/lovemonday/x/11636457). It’s a perfect paper notebook created for entrepreneurs – it has a unique subtle structure, looks and feels great, so you will be proud to keep your thoughts there.

What is the difference between monday. entrepreneur’s notebook. and other notebooks?

Yesterday one blogger asked me this question and I’ve decided to sum up here some key points from previous blog posts 😉

First of all, monday. entrepreneur’s notebook. is a tool where your business plans, ideas and thoughts are not mixed with grocery shopping lists, travelling plans and other also important notes. You use this notebook only for your business projects. This notebook has a specialisation – it’s created for people who identify themselves with entrepreneurial world, just like, for example, travellers who buy special travellers notebooks and feel like a part of a certain community.

The notebook has a special structure which is helpful for entrepreneurs but doesn’t put any strict frames:

– 8 pages with table of contents which you create yourself by adding page numbers & a title. This feature helps you to keep important notes in order, put related topics under one project. Having table of contents also allows you to structure your notes better and make them easy to find.

– each page has a place for a title – you can put here a name of your idea, project, plan, to do list for the week, a list of business books you want to read, etc. One page is a place for one piece of content – that allows you to add more notes to the topic later. The principle one page = one piece of content makes your notes more visual and meaningful. You will not be lost in notes on various topics stuffed on one page.

– a place for a page number – the number itself you add yourself. We did that because pages have perforation and you can pull out a page if you want, for example, to share it with somebody. So, by adding the page numbers ourselves the consistency will not be lost

– inspiring business quotes which I’ve been carefully choosing for among numerous quotes. I’ve picked up only those quotes which were truly inspiring and motivational for me. 

The notebook looks and feels great, so you will be proud to keep your business-related notes in it.

Finally, the notebook can be a great motivational tool for people who have many business ideas, talk about them but the ideas somehow get lost and it doesn’t go any further. In this case getting monday. entrepreneur’s notebook. and writing down your thoughts can be the first step into turning your dreams into great projects. You feel that you have your special storage and it’s waiting for your big ideas 🙂

Film, film, film.

Every crowd funding film should have a film, that’s what they say on all crowd funding websites. The film should tell the story and idea of your product, inspire people, show them how this product could change their lives.

I watched many great crowd funding films, made some notes on what my film should be like. When the prototype of monday. entrepreneur’s notebook was almost ready, I’ve started searching for an agency or an individual film maker who would create a film for my product.

Crowd funding is now making its first steps in Poland, there are several local platforms which are becoming more and popular. Despite that, as it turned out, it’s still very hard to find somebody who will be able to help you to make an impactful film and at the same time understand specifics of crowd funding videos.

I was asking, googling, calling, meeting different people.  Nobody in Warsaw had any experience with crowdfunding films, so I had to make a decision based on other types of videos they made. It also took some time to find a person to write a script.

There is an old Russian cartoon called “Film, film, film”, it has no words so everybody will understands it. It shows in a very funny way how hard it is to make a film. And I can confirm that this film is so true, even if you are not making a hollywood movie, but a crowd funding video 😉

Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EdwSmmXU6JM

All scenes for the crowd funding video for monday. entrepreneur’s notebook. are already filmed. Now it’s time for montage – choosing best parts, adding sound and music. I promise to tell you more about it in the next blog posts. Stay tuned ❤

Look at me.

You have, probably, noticed that monday. entrepreneur’s notebook. has a brand new cover image and saw some instagram posts with its pictures. Recently the notebook had it first real photoset experience 🙂

Now you can see how a real product looks like and how proud you would feel to keep your business ideas, thoughts and plans in it 😉

Smart structure, no limits

While working on monday. entrepreneur’s notebook I looked through dozens of paper notebooks which belong to enterprising people. It became clear for me that creative minds don’t want to be locked into a detailed structure. Though, it would be really helpful to have some almost invisible frames which would help to organise their thoughts, like in a book. That is  how the idea was born – to make  monday. entrepreneur’s notebook a book of your thought, plans and ideas. You can check how it works on the graphics below 🙂
