To People That Want To Make Real Money But Don't Know Where to Start
What started out as any other year for me, 2016 quickly morphed into an entire year of discovery. I went through so many changes and discovered so many facets of myself and my business that I lost count of all the great stuff that happened.
If I told you all of it was perfectly planned out and what happened in 2016 was the result of that plan, I would be straight out lying to you. At the start of 2016, I didn’t have a results-driven plan in place. I had dreams, wishes, and wants. Not exactly the stuff that $10k months are made of. In fact, the only solid action I had in place was a joint webinar with the Money Maven, Patrice Washington, as part of the Write Books That Sell Now team, and that wasn’t happening until late February. But, it was January 1st, 2016, what was I going to do for the next 60 days?
Have you been in that space? Where you know pretty much what you want, but have no idea how to formulate the plan to get there? Well, that was me. Yes WAS me, but not anymore. Now I have an overall strategic plan and several smaller plans that are set to fire off at different stages to help me get to my goal for 2017, which is to break the $100k mark.
It’s not that I haven’t achieved this goal before. When my husband was working his cushy job and we were running the business together, we easily cracked the $100k ceiling and went beyond several years in a row. But that was then and this is now.
Now, I’m embarking on an adventure that will put into play every single thing I learned over the past 12 months. Yes, my husband is still by my side, but now, it’s my turn to succeed on my own merit.
The first indicator that 2016 was going to be a different type of year for me was the results of the webinar with Patrice. When Candice L. Davis, Anita R. Henderson, and I launched the Write Books That Sell Now program on that webinar, we welcomed twenty students into our course, each paying $1,497 for the opportunity. WOW! Talk about a mind-blowing, ego-boosting, validation that we were on the right track! That experience was “All that and a bag of chips.”
Even though the webinar was a success, I wanted to feel those same incredible feelings for myself, for something that I created myself. I knew the only way to do that was to get the help I needed from others who had either already done it or were doing it at that moment and were willing to show me, step-by-step.
Well, I didn’t find a single source to help me, I found several. That’s so me, I can’t do one thing at a time. I have to immerse myself in several things at once. That’s just how I roll. But I learned from the best. I dove head first into every training, seminar, online and in-person event I could find. I hired coaches, purchased programs, and created the space and time for me to learn and absorb all that I needed to do to reach my goal.
I set my plan in motion by deciding to write my book, UN-Market Your Business: 10 Ways for Savvy Entrepreneurs to Stand Out, Stop Struggling, and Start Profiting. But I knew that the book wasn’t the end all and be all of my journey. From my time spent with Candice and Anita, it was embedded in my brain that the book was only the start of my strategic plan and that the finished book would lead me down the road of successfully cracking the $100k mark.
So here it is 2017, the year of action. Last year was all about learning and creating my success strategy. This year, 2017 is all about taking massive action.
My plan is in full swing. My new podcast, UN-Market Your Business premiered Thursday, January 12, 2017, and the Online Business Success Summit launched on January 30, 2017.
