DO THIS MOST OF THE TIME – Tips to organise your day

Stay here if you want to know 
  • What you should do all day
  • Tips to prioritize your day
  • How to spend your time productively

Holla if you’ve heard this before: “Find out your weaknesses and make them your strengths. You need to balance your skills so, in the end, you are good in everything.” Well, I believe this is NOT the way you should live your life. Especially when you think about the time you have in a day.

I’ve been struggling a lot to understand how I should prioritize my day to get the most out of it. Especially when I was doing things that didn’t come naturally to me, I often felt exhausted and defeated.
Focusing on your weaknesses kills your energy!

In our new episode, I’ll give you the 5min fix on how to my should actually spend your day.

What is YOUR strength that you should spend all day developing?

What most say how you should spend your day, is not true. Let’s explore what you ACTUALLY should do most of the time.

Create Content Without Showing Your Face – MODEST BRANDING

Hijabi woman in business, Muslim woman creating content without showing her face

Share Your Diversity 
Share Your Voice

Way too often we forget that we have power. Not through money, status or other physical things. But through our voice.

Is it modest to speak up? To raise my voice? To be truthful and go against what society expects me to believe? To talk about taboos? To share my journey through the lows just as through the highs? How can I gain momentum without compromising my values? Do I want people to know that it’s ME behind this brand?

All this and more went through my head when I started to build a personal brand while trying to navigate my female Muslim identity in business.

What I’ve learned: Use your voice. SPEAK UP. Share your diversity.
There are so many different ways to create content which don’t include your presenting your beauty (as society experts) revealing your name or even showing your face!

However you might define the term “modest”, we have all at some point negotiated whether we should show ourselves on camera or on photos.

In this video, I show you the most effective content forms to create a brand without being on camera. Let me know in the comments whether you would like more videos on “Modest Branding”, inshallah.
