#CTMonthInTheLife Starts Tomorrow!





#CTMonthInTheLife kicks off on Friday the 1st of August… that’s tomorrow!

If you don’t know what it is, go read this first… then come back here.

Right, onwards!

To participate:

1. Share the image below on your Instagram feed if you haven’t already. (And why not share it on FB to your Page… and on Pinterest or Twitter, too? Get your friends playing!).

2. Follow @CreateAndThrive on Instagram. I’ll be posting each day’s prompt to the feed to remind you to take your photo!

3. Post your response to each day’s prompt on your IG feed (and some folks are creating a #CTMonthInTheLife Pin board, too).

4. Make SURE to tag every challenge image @CreateAndThrive AND #CTMonthInTheLife – I’ll be choosing my 4 faves and re-posting them to the C&T IG feed each day.

The aim of this challenge is to get you sharing the story of your business in a fun way! Not only that, if you do every challenge, you’ll have a fabulous bank of photos to use to market your biz and share on your other social media and website/blog.

I hope you’ll be joining us! I’ll be playing along on my Instagram jewellery business account (@Epheriell) too!

I am loving this photo challenge, it has been keeping me inspired and my sales have already increased. Thanks Jess for the motivation!


That’s awesome Kerryn!
