I personally am not a big fan of resolutions. Every time in the past where I’ve set them, I’ve never seemed to actually accomplish them. I do however, see results from and accomplish most of my goals that I set every year (personal or business).
To me, resolutions are for diets you plan on doing for a couple weeks and that’s it. Other than that, let’s set some clear, actionable and realistic goals for yourself instead why don’t we?
I believe in optimistic, stretch goals but also realistic goals. I’ve had a few mentors in the past suggest I set these huge lofty revenue goals for my business, I’m talking a million dollars or more, when I wasn’t even yet making one hundred thousand. Now that’s ridiculous in my mind. It’s not that a million dollar business isn’t doable but when you aren’t even to the first biggest milestone yet of $100,000, it’s so far from realistic that of course 99.9% of people would fail.
One thing you can do to help you figure out just how much money you could potentially make or bring in this coming year is to crunch the numbers.
This week’s video ezine talks about something I hardly ever talk about publicly, how to market to and get corporate (or larger) clients. I teach this stuff privately with clients who target this market but haven’t done a tips video about it yet…take a listen.
Hot tip: To do outreach to corporations, the process is much longer – so please be prepared for that longer sales process. Sometimes the organization doesn’t make a decision at the time you submit your information – some corporations have a proposal process and they review them once a year or a few times a year. This tactic can be more in depth.
Did you see my last email with the Free New Year’s Gift for you? Time is running out to grab it…
I’m raring to go this week with numerous calls for the free coaching (gift) offer I’m giving right now but I’m leaving for LA mid-next week and when I leave, this gift expires!
I urge you to book your session now….I know hundreds of you could benefit from me just taking a look inside your business even for a few minutes. But we’re doing 30 minute sessions and the people that have done them so far have been amazed at all we’ve covered and amazed at all they’ve been MISSING in their MARKETING!
