Take Time to Reflect

review 2016


Was this year a huge success for you? Did your business grow like crazy? Did you stick to your new exercise routine? Did you meet your income goals? Do you know? 

Tracking how your business and life are going isn’t always something that stays top of mind, but it’s important. If you want next year to be better, you need to know where you are right now. You can’t measure without a starting point, right?

We’re going to be talking about moving forward in 2017 and setting intentions for growth over the next few weeks. And before you do that, you need to have some idea of where you are. Take some time over the next few days to assess what’s gone well and what you would like to see change. Here are areas to consider:

Your business structure

Even if you’re getting great results, that doesn’t mean you like the way things are running. What does your business look like right now? Does it support you or drain you? And if you felt like you fell short in some areas, you will likely find areas here that will help to change that. 

Your sales, profit, and personal income

Yes, those are all different. If you want to have your business work like a business, you need to be tracking (and planning) all three. If you don’t know what they are, figure it out, to the best of your ability. Then take some time for reflection. 

Your daily life

List your typical work day and your typical week. Is it exhilarating? Depressing? What words would you use to describe it? 

Your impact

When people ask what you and your business do, what do you tell them? How does that story reflect your goals for your work and your impact on the world around you? 

Save those responses and keep an eye out for the next post in the series, which is starting to get your plans for 2017 down on paper. And don’t forget to sign up for the action packed Live Online Workshop we have coming up where we’ll dive into these areas and get everything down on paper so you’re ready to go into 2017 with your goals in mind. 

We’ll be having a live online workshop on Tuesday December 20th, 11:00 am EST. It will be a full hour and a half, with some high level prework to get done before you log on. This is not a webinar to just login and sit back. You’ll be working on your plans to grow your business in 2017, pushing yourself to dream and define where you’re headed and then name specific actions you will take to get there. 

The first 3 attendees to register will even get some on-the-spot live coaching as we work through our questions! So hop over fast and grab your spot!
