“Six Figures left me wishing I was number seven in their amazing group of girlfriends on a quest for a successful career, a better life and deeper relationships. I found myself picking up the phone to dial old friends and reconnecting with my girls and finding my own support and power team. These women inspired me to take my career to the next level, be true to myself, reach out to my friends, have more fun and experience life in greater fashion!”

Are you really ready for the New Year?As 2012 arrives quickly we can close our eyes and almost here it whispers to us “One, Two, Three… ready or not, here I come!” Just like in the days of our childhood hide and seek play, before we even had a chance to figure out what our next move was going to be, the countdown was over and it was time! Now is the perfect moment to stop and reflect on our accomplishments of the last year and consider where we want to go in the coming year. You have the power to make those decisions. It’s up to you to use it !
OK, let’s get started. First, eliminate all distractions, sounds , whatever. Sit quietly and ask yourself this question : “What do I want to accomplish in 2012?” Having a clear definition of your goal is the first step in reaching it. If you don’t know where you are headed than you don’t know what direction to take. Running a business can be frustrating, stressful, and confusing, at times. Having goals that provide direction and motivation help us stay creative and enjoy what we are doing.
You know, they say “Time flies when you’re having fun” and I don’t know about you but I think it flies whether you’re having fun or not! It’s happening whether we are prepared or not and we certainly aren’t getting any younger!
Success isn’t something we stumble upon. It isn’t something that arrives at our doorstep by chance or accident. We don’t wake up one day and find that we’re successful. We reach success after a period of time in which we have defined, planned, programmed, worked, walked, sweat, struggled, analyzed, reworked, and believed we could actually reach it. It’s not easy but it isn’t impossible either. It takes clarity, determination and persistence but it can be yours!
In real life you get to define the direction of your business and you should. Do you want to grow or downsize? Should you move to a new location or work from home? Do you want to make more money? Do you want to take on a partner or hire a new employee? Do you want to add a new service or reduce your product line? All of these questions you need to ask and answer yourself and then define what your plan is for 2012. You can’t expect to walk into 2012 without goals and a game plan on how you will achieve them.
Part of what I do as a Business Coach is to sit down with you, as a client, and walk you through this process. I can help you understand where you are, where you want to be and what it’s going to take to get there. My years of experience give me the opportunity to see what you can’t see and then help you plan how to get there. We can define what you would like, what you absolutely have to have and that middle ground that is a compromise between the two. We can create a realistic, attainable and sound plan for you to start your New Year knowing where you are going and how you’re going to achieve your success.
Sometimes people forget that they have to spend money in order to make money. Sometimes they forget that it’s much better to hire someone who can help them figure it out from a different perspective. It’s easy to be so close to our business that we don’t see opportunities right under our nose. Gaining another opinion and brainstorming with other professionals just makes good sense. I do the same thing for my business. I have learned that it can cost me more money to try to figure things out by myself instead of bringing in another professional to help share ideas and their expertise.
