This month is THE time for you to be working on your Plan – a great plan of Action for the coming year. So today, I’m sharing tips about a great process you can follow to plot out your marketing calendar for 2017.

tips for plotting out your marketing calendarI’ve been talking about the NEED number a lot lately and I’m working on the Marketing Planning Process with several of my 1on1 and VIP clients right now.  I hope you are working on your plan as well!

There are so many ways to plot out your Plan of Action for your year such as a Mind Map, a Vision Board, your Google Calendar or even sticky notes.

But, you can’t create an effective PLAN without knowing how much money you need to make in your business!  If you haven’t already picked up your FREE download of this resource, click here to get my worksheet to develop your NEED Number today!  

How do you plan to get in front of enough people to make money?

Start with the big rocks first, have you heard that?

It’s true…listen to this video to get some insider tips on how I plan out my year from big plans to nitty gritty daily and monthly marketing plans and how YOU can do this too!

Make life easier on yourself and do this type of planning every year. If you already have your “plan” in order I would still look at this video as it may give you some ideas of things you are NOT doing and should.

Check out the video below for more detail about my Tips for Plotting Out Your Marketing Calendar!!

Now that you knew the Steps – Start Plotting Out Your Marketing Calendar!

All of this type of planning is critical to your business. This is something I coach people on. It’s so much more than knowing how to post on Facebook or how to create a Facebook Video. Sure, it’s good to know those things, but if you are not thinking about the Big Picture in your business – like How to Plot out your Marketing Calendar and in what order of importance – you will find yourself half way through the year struggling to make the money you wanted. And you’re not going to reach your Goals!

Remember – we created our businesses so we could have the kind of life we WANTED to live. And guess what – it takes some work! Get out of your comfort zone.

It all comes down to “what do you need to make every month”. If you don’t have the clarity and understanding of how much money you need to make each week or each month, my Need Number tool will help you!

So pick up my free resource that will help you determine your Need Number. I developed this because I needed it and then I found my clients did too! So head on over to number and download your worksheet today!

If you’ve been considering hiring a business coach, marketing coach, life coach or some other type of mentor but you haven’t yet and aren’t sure who to hire or what you really need then take a look at this.

If you’ve hired coaches or mentors before for your business, yourself or some other reason and it’s gone well, great. If you’ve hired them and it hasn’t gone well or you for some reason don’t feel like you received the value you deserved, I get it.

All coaches and mentors are NOT created equal. Even those who call themselves a Business Coach, we all do various different things and in different ways so it can be tough looking and evaluating from the outside, thinking you’re comparing apples to apples when you’re in fact comparing apples to oranges.

Not everyone is clear on what they provide and how they work with you as a coaching client. Or what you’ll walk away with after working with them. You want to maybe ask more questions when you’re in the interviewing process rather than making quick decisions from hypey sales pitches.

If you’re not totally convinced yet that you should in fact hire a Business Coach, here are 8 Reasons to Hire a Business Coach Sooner Rather Than Later in Your Business:

  1. Moves you faster to your goals
  2. Learn the things you don’t know that you should know
  3. Prevents you from making many costly or time consuming mistakes
  4. Help you focus on what’s important and prioritize better
  5. Have someone to hold you accountable and get “the right” stuff accomplished
  6. Have someone who “gets you” that you can come to anytime you have an issue or concern
  7. To stay motivated to reaching your goals
  8. You learn from “their mentors” too

7 Things to Consider When Hiring a Mentor or Coach…

Look For Someone Who:

  1. Genuinely cares about your success and happiness and shows it
  2. Gives you a LOT of ACCESS to them in many different ways (you’ll most likely need it!)
  3. Invests in themselves and their business too, continuously
  4. Shares and gives unconditionally to you and others
  5. You can trust
  6. Inspires or motivates you
  7. Teaches or supports you in a way that works for you

I would love to have an in depth conversation with you if you think there’s a possibility that you would be a good fit to work with me. We both make the decision if it’s a go or not after a phone call. I like to really go deep with you to find out your deepest desires, dreams and plans for your life, your business and your ultimate happiness.

I’m the type of person who focuses on the big picture and how everything you’re doing flows together plus all the little details and things that need to get done AND best of all in what order to you’re not wasting your time or money getting this business up and running. I’m about implementation that leads to sales and clients and ultimately the life you want; I do this teaching online and offline marketing and business strategies.

My goal for clients though is ultimately to create your happiest life ever by creating a smooth-running, revenue generating and SUSTAINABLE business that will allow you to do what you love for years to come. My systems and programs teach entrepreneurs the foundational structures and marketing for any business that without them, its near to impossible to make much money or have a life. Often times, to do this, we have to dive into all areas of your business (and sometimes your life) in order to really get your goals, actions and results in alignment.

In many of my programs, coaching and events too I give a ton of access. This is important because when you’re in the midst of really growing your business or doing a lot more marketing you need access to get more done faster.


Most clients typically are looking to get into an annual coaching group or mastermind but some prefer one-on-one coaching. I know how important it is to have BOTH when you’re starting or growing your business. I’ve always been a part of a mastermind program, some bigger than others. Most have included one-on-one calls as well as group calls and meetings but these days it’s hard to find such a combination for a reasonable price. (And by reasonable, I mean less than $30,000!)


Well, my Live Big Mastermind, combines both – group and one-on-one for maximum support, accountability, training, resources and ACCESS. Check out what’s included in a year of working with me and a small encouraging group of your peers here.


Here’s to creating and enjoying the business and life of your dreams!
