What I learned in 2014!

Sharing The Wisdom

brains

As I sit with pen to paper to write my second last article of the year I often wonder if people take the time to read articles or blogs posted by the people they follow. We are inundated with information on a daily basis via email and social media.  As a small business owner with a 100 things to do in a day I set aside time each day to read emails, visit social media and to create.  Time management is one of the main keys to ensuring that you are staying relevant and on top of your things to do.

As the year comes to a close I want to share some of the things I have learned in 2014 that I feel are thought provoking and perhaps will help spur you into action for 2015.

10 Things I learned in 2014

  1. In three years there will be three billion more people on the Internet. Now is the time to ensure you have an online presence and material.
  2. If a skill is important to your overall success, master it. (I suggest sales!)
  3. Pick one thing.  Do it well, and then move on to the next thing. Don’t try to do too much at the same time.  Just one thing and stick to it.
  4. If you knock on the door of opportunity, don’t be surprised that work answers.
  5. If you don’t love your website, change it.  It is the face of your business.
  6. Never let your small business be small-minded.
  7. You need to build creative time into your day and stick to it.  (Schedule it!)
  8. Look at your top three revenue streams and focus on them.
  9. When you question yourself worth, it impacts your net worth.
  10. Your personal financial reality should not be a factor in your pricing.

I am advising that you start with creating and scheduling your time in your calendar.   Time management is key for a business owner.

Remember what you want to do doesn’t have to be perfect, you just have to start.  So as 2014 comes to an end start 2015 with this.

If you want to work on this together my gift to you this holiday season is a thirty minute strategy session (value $250). It is so normal to uncover what I would call a ‘golden nugget’ that shifts your perception and business.  If in 30 minutes I have helped shift your business to growth I will feel satisfied that I have done my job.
