***Guest blog post from one of my Awesome Live Big Mastermind clients, Lisa Harris of EnduringFitness4u.com – enjoy!

While at a luncheon recently, the conversation at the table I was sitting at turned to maintaining focus and achieving goals. The business coach that was next to me ask me if I had a morning routine.

My answer was a resounding “No!” Over time, I’ve developed a bad habit of staying in bed after the alarm goes off; it’s just so easy to hit the “snooze” button!

But the question posed by the coach at our table aroused my curiosity to the point that I began researching the topic of morning routines when I returned home. What I found is that most of us do not engage in or practice a morning routine.

Set Your Morning, Set Your Day

A routine will help keep you focused on your most important tasks and you’ll be less likely to let distractions knock you off track. Many experts say a morning routine will help you prepare for your day. It’s helps you be proactive and can increase productivity and energy levels. A morning plan also helps you take care of yourself, first.

Many successful people who depend on their A.M. routines are Former President Obama, Steve Jobs, Tony Roberts, just to name a few.

Steps to Create your Morning Routine

1. Prepare the night before. This helps decrease the number of decisions you have to make in the morning, boosting your chance of success.

  • Make a commitment to rise at a specific time.
  • Move your alarm away from your bed because this forces you to get up.
  • Set out your clothes and anything else you’ll need the next day

2. Stay hydrated – drink a large glass of water upon rising.
3. Valuable activities to do in your routine:

  • Meditate or sit in silence.
  • Express gratitude.
  • Write goals.
  • Exercise.
  • Visualize your successful day.

4.  Last but not least important – you’ll need to get up earlier than you do now.

The coach who posed the morning routine question to us at the luncheon recommended “The Miracle Morning” by Hal Elrod. She thought this book would help jumpstart my day with focus. And she was right!

Since reading the book, I’m surprised that I no longer hate getting up at 5:30 a.m. I used to loathe rising early because I had to leave home at 6:15 for my 50-mile drive to work (ugh, how did I ever do that?). I was also a terrible sleeper which didn’t help.

I’m happy to report that after only 8 days into my new morning routine, I’m actually enjoying it. I’ll continue to keep you updated on my progress from time to time.

I highly encourage you to check out the book, if you’re looking for a new way to start a morning routine and get focused.

This article about ClickFunnels is by one of my Virtual Assistants and clients, but I highly agree!

No matter what point you are in your business, you are always looking for THE best solutions for operating your business.

There are so many choices for systems out there and sometimes it can be hard to choose one.

One of the things we do at That Helpful Chick is help business owners find the best systems, not only for their business BUT for their budget as well !!

If you are unsure of what system to use; or if you would like to know if what you are currently using is really the best choice for you; take a moment to fill out this short form and schedule your FREE consultation call TODAY!

Bottom Line: You can get by with very little cost if you are just starting out, as little as less than $50 per month.

Are there systems that make your life easier? Of course there are, but they usually have a cost that comes with that convenience.

Kathy and I LOVE our tech. We love checking out new tools and systems and see if they are as good as they claim themselves to be.

One of the most recent ones we have looked at is ClickFunnels (CFs). What I will say is, if you just want a simple page builder solution, there are cheaper ones out there.

What is CFs good for then? It does simplify creating a sales funnel and taking payments. If you don’t mind paying $97 a month for that, then CFs is good for you.

Be aware though, that at the $97 plan you are limited to 20 funnels and 100 pages (funnel steps).

They claim to be an all-in-one solution and they are definitely NOT!

If you have the full Etison Suite at $297 per month, you also get access to Actionetics for email and Backpack to create your affiliate program as well as unlimited funnels and pages.

Sounds like an all-in-one solution, doesn’t it? However, what they don’t tell you:

  • You need an SMTP service to deliver emails (paid service)
  • If you want to do SMS, you have to purchase Twilio (paid service)
  • If you want to be notified when someone opts in or buys – good luck cause the in funnel system doesn’t work properly

Those are just a small example of the issues with CF.

There is no live support to call.

There is no communication with their clients (YOU) when known issues come about that have a direct effect on YOUR business.

I could go on and on but I think you get the idea.

Do we still recommend CFs? Sometimes we do. We do not recommend the full suite to anyone unless they have a big budget, simply because it allows for unlimited funnels.

It is also a good solution for a page builder for those who have ZERO tech skills.

I can say it IS the best page design solution I have seen. You can easily create, edit and use beautiful sales pages.

What it IS NOT is an all-in-one solution.

Is there such a thing, you may be asking? Maybe. We are looking into a few other tools out there and will let you know what we find.

What can you use if you don’t have a budget for systems like CFs?

Well, we would love to have that discussion with you !

Here’s to Your Success!
