“Think You Can, Think You Can’t; Either Way, You’ll Be Right!” — Henry Ford
For many of us, Summer can be both wonderful and discouraging. Wonderful because we have more time with our children and discouraging because we have less time to spend unleashing our creativity and developing & nurturing our business ideas.
Therefore, the key is to focus on doing things that will have a dramatic impact on the development and growth of your business in the shortest amount of time. Now is the time to lay some essential ground-work so that come September, when the kids are back in school, you will be ten steps ahead!
Here are a few programs & activities that may help you:
I’m so glad that many of you have taken advantage of our Product Evaluation Program this Summer. If you are trying to figure out what to do next with your product and are looking for honest, detailed feedback, check out our Product Evaluation Program. Our goal is to provide you with clear information and candid feedback about your product. As part of this evaluation program, I will personally speak with you for 30 minutes about your product.
"It will save you so much time and energy. These people know what they are doing and they are sincere in helping you. I never felt like they had any other agenda other than my success." - Tammy
"The service will provide insight and direction, and will speed up the process by giving a clear plan of action and will evaluate the idea objectively." – Rebecca
The way to turn your ideas into actionable steps is to plan. However, few terms in business conjure a greater emotional reaction than “business planning.” For many people, including myself when I first started out, just hearing those two words causes a sudden rise in blood pressure and a flood of self-doubt.
Imagine what it would feel like to have clarity, focus and confidence. This is truly possible to attain and I am living proof!
A One Page Business Plan is not a lengthy, arduous, boring financial document. In fact, it's your best thinking (and your heart) on paper. It’s where you can focus on what you are building and who you are serving. You may even surprise yourself and fall in love with your plan! To get an overview of the process, listen to the webinar that my friend and co-author, Jim Horan and I held in March. Then get your copy of this engaging workbook and get started.
I know you can do it!
Since the release of my book, Your Million Dollar Dream: Regain Control & Be Your Own Boss, we have held two live chats. It's been fabulous to hear what people are building and where they are feeling stuck. Together we have offered resources and information that have helped many move to the next step. Here's what one participate shared after the last live chat:
Thank you Tamara for the wonderful advice during our chat last night! As always, you are right on the money! The wisdom and experience that you provide is always so practical and resourceful! (So when is you NEXT book coming out??!!??) Thank you too to the supportive community of moms out there!
Our chats are the first Wednesday of each month. I hope you'll join us for our next chat Wednesday, August 4th at 5:30pm PDT / 8:30pm EST.
