Here we are, at beginning of another year! Get ready for this to be your biggest and best year ever.
Here are some of my favorite tips for setting yourself up for success in the new year.Get yourself on track by taking these 5 steps to success:
1.Setting an income goal for the year: Do you have a specific number you would like to reach? Write it down. Or maybe you want to increase your income by 25% over last year? Figure out what that number actually is and write it down. Setting a specific income goal will be the biggest determining factor in manifesting your ideal income in this new year. And committing goals to paper and reviewing them regularly gives you a 95% higher chance of achieving your desired outcomes.
2.Mapping out your income strategy: Now that you have written down the figure you are aiming for, you need to determine how you will reach that goal. How many new clients must you sign up? What new programs will you launch? What marketing efforts do you need to do in order to make that number a reality? Take the time now to plan all of your marketing events so that you will confidently generate the leads you need.
3.Decide what help you need to reach your goals: If you want your business to grow, you must invest in your business. That means looking at what entrepreneurial skills you need to acquire, what business training you might need, and what personal development would really boost your self-confidence, and decide to get that support for yourself. If you plan on kicking up your marketing, you may need a marketing assistant, or content creator, or a graphic designer. You may also find that letting go of some administrative tasks is now essential to growing your empire. Hiring a bookkeeping service might need to go on your list this year. Evaluate your strengths and weaknesses and determine what gaps you need to fill to reach your goals.
4.Planning your calendar for entire year: It seems early, but planning as much of your calendar as possible in advance will help keep you organized and stay on track. As well as scheduling your known meetings and deadlines, make sure to:
- Schedule all your marketing launches and promotional events
- Block 3 hours a week for marketing. Every week. No excuses.
- Mark off time to take vacations now. Make it a goal to take a 3 day
5. What kind of structure for accountability do I need? We all make wonderful intentions at the beginning of the year. And studies show that by the end of January only 33% of you will still remember what your goals were. What will make the difference this year? In my experience, you must set up a structure for accountability: a person, a coach or a group that you are part of that you regularly report your progress to. Being accountable to another person makes it 100 times more likely you will follow through.
These are just a few of the things that will ensure that you have a banner year. I will be sharing more about how to set yourself up for success in my upcoming Attract Clients Now Mastermind Program, starting in February.
Also, every month I will be offering a free tele-class on the different tools to unlock your potential and create the income you desire.
Have this be the year that you reach ALL of your income goals!
