How to take action when you have too many great ideas

Posted by Ilise Benun on

It’s been 1 year and 4 months since Bryn Mooth left her full time job to become a freelance journalist and writer. (We’ve been following her progress here.)

She attended CFC this past June in Boston for the first time as a full-fledged attendee. (In the past 4 years, she’d been co-host in her capacity as editor of HOW Magazine).

I interviewed her recently about her progress so far and what she learned as a freelancer at CFC. (Listen to the podcast here.)

One thing that’s brand new: Bryn recently launched a new website that does a better job of promoting her writing services than her blog was doing. (See it at – it was designed by WordPress designer (and Marketing Mentor client), Jill Anderson of She’s also created an email newsletter and is sharpening her SEO.

Bryn and I talked (among many other things) about what she learned at CFC and how she is putting that learning into practice. One aspect I thought was worth sharing is her technique for taking the potentially overwhelming amount of information/ideas that comes out of CFC and prioritizing them so she can implement them.

She suggests taking a half day – maybe every Friday for the several weeks or months — and focusing on one session or topic each Friday. During that carved out time, spend the time reviewing your notes, digesting what you learn, creating an action plan and then taking the first few actions.

Listen here to hear exactly how Bryn does her one-chunk-at-a-time approach. 

How do you do it?
