Are you ready to have your best year ever? I hope so!

I know one thing I want to do more of is to put ME and my family first when it comes to my planning, my business and my calendar, how about you?

My husband Jason and I just returned from a really relaxing 9 day vacation in Mexico and we couldn’t have taken that if we hadn’t planned far in advance. You see, we have his ex-wife to deal with on trading days for custody and you can imagine a longer term getaway, either with Riley or without, takes a bit of negotiation in this situation. Plus we have to coordinate dog sitters, all the travel itself, pre-pay, manage my clients, my team and more. And to boot, we decide to sell our house and buy a new house in the process… a last minute decision at Thanksgiving but we found a great new, bigger home and it motivated us to get our current house ready to sell too.

Many people with lots on their plate, even just this amount of things, may not take the time or effort to invest into planning a vacation but we did. We know that getting away alone really rejuvenates us as a couple, as business professionals and just renews our energy and spirit.

So the biggest thing we do to put US first is to make sure we plan ahead to take vacations each year. Typically we do one with Riley (our now 8 year old, soon to be 9) and one without. The second thing is I try to cut down on evening functions that I attend so we can have dinner together and family time for the short amount of time we have together each day.

It’s probably time you put YOU FIRST more often as well I would imagine…right? 

When’s the last time you truly made decisions based on putting yourself first?

What would you add back into your day, week, month or year if you could waive a magic wand right now?

Watch my video tip today to give you some ideas and inspiration on how to do this, why it’s so critical to your success plus a few key secrets that I share too on what gives me more freedom in my own business.

This is an article by my friend Melanie Benson Strick….

Your mindset – your beliefs, ideas and attitude — has a huge impact on the level of success you can achieve. Think of your mindset like your lens of possibility. If your lens is cloudy and distorted, you can’t see all the possibilities easily.

a cash giftIf you are a leader, visionary or entrepreneur type, having a healthy money mindset is essential to carrying out your mission in the most effective, and profitable way. When you can see possibilities clearly you make better decisions, which obviously will lead to greater profits and impact.

But here’s the crazy part. Most people really don’t know that their mindset has become a bottleneck to their next level of success. Because that way of thinking is their NORM it’s accepted – and even worse – you just work harder to be successful in spite of your lack mindset.

If you want to be able to elevate your success you’ll need to upgrade your money mindset pronto!

Here’s seven signs your money mindset needs an upgrade:

  1. You hold back from investing in your business growth because you can’t afford it.
  2. You alternate between a big payday and scrambling for sales.
  3. You routinely make “just enough” to cover all your bills.
  4. On some level you see wealthy people as “bad” or you are worried you will be “like them.”
  5. The fear of what you will have to give up or change to be successful a recurring concern.
  6. You are still doing it all yourself because you can’t financially justify paying others to help you.
  7. You are busy – a lot – but your effort doesn’t translate to more money in the bank.

Suspect you might have at least ONE indicator? Don’t worry, you and 95% of the human population! But the more indicators on this list you have the more likely you are to be secretly pushing away the very thing you deeply desire — more financial freedom.

Here’s what to do next.

  1. Decide that you will thrive in your life and business.

Before you do anything you must decide that you want to thrive. Make a commitment to do the inner work that will allow you to be more effective in your actions, choices and results.

  1. Determine if there is a success barrier derailing you from doing what would really work.

Now it’s time to determine what’s causing you to short circuit your success. Typically one of three success barriers are at play – Fear, Internal Conflict or Sabotaging Stories. These barriers have been in place for a really long time (they are almost always operating at the subconscious level) so you might want to get help from a professional.

  1. Learn how to rewire your money mindset.

By rewiring your money mindset you eliminate the erroneous thought patterns that cloud your choices. Rewiring can be as simple as training your mind to think more constructive thoughts. For some, you’ll need to go deeper and recode a really old belief system that has become a negative anchor.

Did you know that the level of success you have RIGHT NOW is the direct result of your underlying “abundance code?”

Think of your abundance code like your internal operating system (yes like your computer) that is running how all of your success programs work.

MelanieBS-bookpromoIf you don’t like the results you are experiencing RIGHT NOW then you could use a little rewiring in your success program NAME.

My friend Melanie Benson Strick has just released a new book called Rewired for Wealth. I’ve read it and wow, I learned a lot about how the subconscious mind is driving our thoughts, behaviors and results.

Then I discovered Melanie is giving this book away for FREE for a short time. I highly recommend you get a copy today! Get it HERE.

I also learned a lot about how you can rewire the program that your subconscious mind is using – which is the key to achieving higher levels of success.

When you read Rewired for Wealth, you’ll be able to do it too.

MindMap-Projects

My mind map for this year

In my business, I am constantly redefining myself, my services and my products in order to stay ahead of or at least keep up with the industry of marketing. If I don’t bring fresh ideas and material to my clients regularly, then someone else will.

Most entrepreneurs are not taking the time to work “on” your business, therefore you tend to struggle and stress out “in” it. Often times saying “I’m too busy” yet what you may be doing isn’t being productive.

As a small business, you have to wear many hats but your sales and marketing hat is the single-most important hat you wear. How much time are you spending wearing that hat?

Here are 3 action steps you can take to work ON your business more so you can be more productive and make more money:

  1. Schedule 1 day each month as a “Creative” Day – a day you will do nothing but sit and write down all the ideas that come to mind about how you can update or increase your business, who you know that you can work with, how you will promote the products and services you offer, what else you want to do or add to your website, what is the next big thing you want to create or launch?
  2. Schedule another day each month as an “Implementation” Day – a day you will do nothing but put those ideas into action – updating the text on your websites, writing and distributing press releases or email promotions, planning a workshop, developing marketing materials, reaching out to joint venture partners, etc.
  3. Schedule weekly time to work “ON” your business – typically I recommend a minimum of 2-10 hours each week to spend on marketing, sales, follow up calls, email marketing, strategizing and delegating. This time is in addition to your in-person networking and your customer appointments. If you’re not very busy now then spend more like 60% of your work-week on these revenue-generating tasks.

Here are a few Revenue Generating Tasks to Spend Time On:

  • I love using Google Calendar to plot out my tasks each week!

  • Record a quick video tip and upload to YouTube, share with social sites too.
  • Write a quick blog post and share it out with your social sites or subscribers.
  • Request to speak for 3 potential organizations, conferences, meetings or radio shows.
  • Get to one to three networking events in person every week.
  • Create your own free or paid teleclass, webinar or event for list building or sales.
  • Send an email out to your list asking for referrals or to offer a quick sale.
