It is the end of 2014, the end of my second year as the owner of Alaska Tracy, Social Media / Marketing Strategist. There is so much happening in business and personal life as these next few weeks unfold. Do you feel all the energy in the air right now?
I would love to share with you what has made my business a success over this last year, as well as each business I have owned. My goal: to give you HOPE for a prosperous, joy filled 2015!
1. Create a business plan. Keep it SIMPLE! How many times have you heard that and sat and contemplated creating your business plan? Wonder where to begin? What numbers to write down? How to attract new clients? I have a simple method to the crazy thoughts in your head. Take out a piece of paper and set a timer for 15 minutes. Start with the number you want to achieve first and then work your way backwards. Your number can be however big or small you want it to be. It is your business. After 15 minutes, stop and walk away. Go for a walk, do Yoga, take a break! You have started your plan! Starting is half the battle! Calendar your next 15 minutes and keep going and calendaring until you are done.
2. Write down 3 to 5 goals you want to achieve in 2015. Your head may tell you there are hundreds of things you need to focus on or achieve, however often times that is what keeps us from even starting our plan. Again, less is best. Once you have your 3 to 5 goals written down, then you can create the action tasks needed to obtain success within each of these.
3. Hire a business coach! I have taken only a few short breaks going ‘coachless’ in all my years in business. Your partner, family member, spouse are great for support, however my experience is that I am unable to hear the truth from them. Something happens when I am willing to pay a coach to tell me the truth, help me implement my plan, and hold me accountable. Nine times out of ten, I do the work and I achieve those big huge goals I wrote down in the beginning of the year.
Success is possible for all of us!!! These steps can help you! Oh…one more thing, be willing to let go of the results as they are often bigger, brighter, shinier than you could have ever imagined! Here is to success in 2015!
