2016! Where have you gone?
Hello wedding pro friends, clients, fans… we are here again… At the end of our year. How did we get here so quickly? I don’t know about you – but I am SO EXCITED to greet a NEW YEAR! Let’s DO THIS!
WELCOME to the world-famous ACTION PLAN! (And – Welcome back to many of you too!)
We wrote the first Action Plan in 2012 (and had previous versions dating back to 2010 in other formats.) We make a commitment to give you SOLID TOOLS (no fluff) to use in your business. The Action Plan will help you in assessing what’s working in your business and building on those strengths. And, it will guide you in fixing what needs improvement.
3 Things I want You TO DO:
1.) COMMIT: Mark your calendar for 4 hours a week to work on the Action Plan over the next few weeks. This Action Plan takes commitment. BUT – we’ve heard from SO MANY of you that are able to make so many great goals come to life by committing to creating a plan for them.
2.) BE INTENTIONAL: Dig deep to examine what is REALLY working in your business. And – get rid of everything that is not. We waste time and money on things that don’t matter. Stop looking at everyone else and go internal.
3.) BE YOU: Bigger isn’t always better. What does ‘big’ mean to you? I talk a lot about growth in this action plan. But – growth isn’t always about size. (You don’t need to open an office or hire employees.) Growth is about doing things better, smart, and more efficient – to earn what you want from this business.
