A Year Of Saying YES!

A story of Life, Love and Business

No.72 - Look For The Lion Within You...

2019 Jan 21, 2019
Every week in my role as Coach I have the joy of working with many new Business Owners to help them move forward in their business. It’s a privileged position from which I get to share their successes and failures and their highs and lows.
One of the things that often surprises new Business Owners the most is the degree to which their mindset can affect their day to day progress and productivity.
Not surprisingly, most business owners are obsessed with doing the work they love; following their mission; finding a regular stream of customers and growing their business. But, often the things that keep them awake at night relate to their own self-doubts.
Being a Business Owner is a complex thing. If we are honest most of us find ourselves fluctuating in our mood and mindset on an almost daily (or even hourly!) basis.

As we start of a week of Goal-Setting in the Ideas Into Action Business Club I am looking forward to working with over 50 Business Owners for a full day to think through and set out their plans for the year ahead.
This is an exercise that I encourage all the Business Owners that I Coach to invest time in at the start of each year.
As usual I have pulled together a systemic process for them to follow that guides them, step by step, through the vital stages; from understanding where they are currently; detailing what they want ‘More of’ and ‘Less of’; identifying their BIG Goal for the year ahead; through to reverse engineering the actions they will need to take to get there. At each stage there are templates and tools to ensure that no detail is lost; and plans and trackers to help them keep on the straight and narrow.
