Hello my friends how are you doing today? I know I have been a little behind on the Home Business blog posts, videos, and trainings. That is because we are working on something big here with marketing mastery movement and it has consumed alot of my time.
With that aside, I wanted to write this quick post about goals and clear thinking.
There are 2 things you must do to guide your efforts in your home business:
1. Plan, Plan, and Plan again
2. Have a clear goal(s) in mind and stick to it.
Lets talk about planning first: I want you to think about your home business and everything you do on a daily basis.
Now I want you to think of all the little extra stuff that goes into your business on a daily basis. Have it all together?
Don’t Be Left At The Table Without A Plan
Ok, how much extra time do you spend on your business then what you had planned for? Answer: way to much right.
I am sure if you are anything like myself or my team, you end up sitting on the couch, desk, table, and hours are flying by, you are getting cramps, sore, sweaty, and most times annoyed right? That is exactly what has happened to me time and time again and it really never ends.
The way to avoid this and stay on the right path is to “PLAN”. Planning won’t stop the 6 hour sessions online, but it will help keep your mind at ease when you are working on 10 things at once. Planning gives you the guidance and piece of mind you need in this industry. When you plan you are in control and you know what you are doing/ when you are doing it.
When you don’t plan it can feel overwhelming and feel like there is honestly no hope.
example: you start learning how to make videos, you make your first video, then you see another persons marketing funnel and their videos blow yours away. What do you do now?
You go back and figure out how they made their logo appear on their video, or how they switched the screen, or a million other things to get on their level.
By doing this you are growing and learning whether you see it or not, but what you thought you had accomplished has now turned into another 5 hour session re learning your video software or buying a new software.
This may seem hopeless but I promise you it isn’t. What you want to do everyday with you planning is simple.
When you write out your daily tasks list: note: IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A DAILY TASKS LIST YOU NEED TO START RIGHT NOW. (this is the only way I stay sane)
Add an additional hour of “learn time” into your list. This way you will not be rushed and you can take the extra few minutes on each task to learn something new.
example list of mine:
1 hour: update all ppc campaigns
1 hour: blog post
1 hour: answer all customer inquiries
1 hour: check online banking
1: update all social media accounts
1: record new webinar
1 hour: learn time
total : 7 hours
See that is how its done and its honestly that easy. Now you list needs to be alot more detailed especially when starting out and it seems like the world is flying at you 100 miles per hour, but you get the point.
PLANNING CAN AND WILL BE YOUR BEST FRIEND! JUST INTRODUCE YOURSELF TODAY AND YOU WILL GET GREAT AT DAILY PLANNING.
Now, goals for your home business. This is something that everyone must have for themselves and set on a daily basis.
GOALLL…!!!!!!! Yes, it needs to be that loud and constantly echoing in your brain.
What is your goal? That is the ultimate question for everyone. Obviously to make millions in this industry is or should be everyones goal, but when first starting out you have to be realistic.
Set small goals daily, and write out the big goal. This way you can see the small goals being accomplished and it will motivate you greatly on your road to the top.
Goals are your life blood. If you can set a clear goal, and follow the path to reach it, you have just bested this industry and put it to its knees.
Your home business call to action:
1. Start planning today
-write out a “daily tasks” list and project your week
- make sure to alot for 1 hour of “learn time”
2. Set short term and long term goals
-set 10 short term and 1 long term goal
Formula: Planning + action= Goal!
Hope this helps anyone who is stressing or struggling right now. We were all there at one point and we all go through it on many levels everyday.
