December “To-Do’s” for January “Breakthroughs”
January is known universally as the BIGGEST month of growth for home business owners. Not only does this month bring massive opportunities for business builders due to so many new years resolutions to “make more money” or “start taking my current business more seriously,” but it also sets the stage for the entire upcoming year.
Yet most home business owners will repeat the same mistakes they made last year. They don’t really commit to growth and change. They will continue to buy into crap excuses like “I don’t have the time” or “I don’t have the money.” And (this is huge) they will wait until January to do important things that should be done in December.
Don’t make the same mistakes you made last year !
The home biz owners that will continue to get lame, mediocre results in the new year will wait until January to set their new year goals, tighten infrastructure, increase web presence and do other activities that take away from things they should be doing in January which is produce produce produce!
Here are a few things you should be doing now, (in December) that will allow you to hit the ground running in January and make for an explosively profitable and fulfilling new year! This stuff works! Do not take it lightly!
1) Review and reflect on the past year
This doesn’t mean beat yourself up for all the things you wanted to accomplish but didn’t. This means reflecting on what you DID accomplish in 2014. How did you grow ?
(Both in your business and your personal life). What did you learn? In what ways did you grow? (again both personally and professionally). What books did you read and what courses, or info products did you consume and what did you learn from each of them?
Make a list of every single victory you experienced in your business in 2014. No victory is too small here.
First online lead? Make any sales or get anyone to sign up with you?
Did you create or purchase something that can be a long term asset to your business moving forward? Start listing ALL your victories you experienced in business in 2014.
2) Create New goals and Craft Your Vision
Too many people wait until January to set their goals or “resolutions” for the new year. You will be seeing a lot more goal setting training from me in the coming weeks, so I’m not going to go super in-depth here. But here are a few points to remember. Start with getting clear on a vision for what you want your business and life to look like. If you were to go really big in this business journey what would your life look like? In what specific ways would you benefit from it? In what ways would other people like friends, family members and strangers benefit? What organizations and causes would you support?
When it comes to goal setting, make a list of things you want to accomplish in the new year. Do not edit. Do not hold back. Make a list of 5-10 business related goals for 2015. Then cube the list down to the big 3. What are the top 3 big business goals you have for 2015? Make sure to write them down! It is said that 3% of the population writes down their goals and the other 97% of the population work for these people. After that what are the top 3 “lifestyle” goals you have for 2015? In what ways will you reward yourself for hitting your business goals? Will you take the kids to Disney Land? Travel abroad for the first time, etc. This is important because setting big goals will inevitably bring big challenges. You want to get really clear on how you will reward yourself for your hard work and sacrifice.
3) Polish your web presence and tighten up the ship
Start thinking about all the ways in which you can improve your own web presence. This may include things like creating a new header image to use across your social media accounts, a new background or a new video intro to use in your video marketing.
Got a blog ?
Main website ?
At this point not sure why you wouldn’t if you want to be taken seriously in today’s business world, ask yourself "Is there a personally branded offer you could create to position yourself as more of an authority?"
Are people interested in working with you specifically or are you just marketing the company you work for ?
Already have an offer? How can you improve it ? What are other people in the industry doing ?
( There's a hint at the bottom on how to find out if you don't already know. )
Are you using automation to get your new buyers to move through your up-sell process ?
In what ways could you either improve your own sales conversion processes or improve your average customer profitability? Again don’t worry about how exactly you are going to do these things or worry about not having the time to do them, just make the list!
Like automation and training on bringing in more online leads ?
