A new year, a new you! I said it before and I'll say it again, I love to jump into each new year with enthusiasm of the brand new opportunities ahead.
I know that technically it's just another day, another week, another year - like all the rest in our lives.
But there's something so empowering behind setting new, ambitious goals with everyone else. An entire community who believes in making changes, even if all of those changes are different and cater to each person's individual path of life.
There's rallying behind those new goals.
There's excitement and motivation.
The hard part is sticking to them. A year is a long time! But once you start seeing progress, despite the type of goal you're working towards, it encourages you to keep going.
So how can you set your business up for success in 2023?
1] Analyze your 2022 goals. Did you hit those goals? It's absolutely ok if you didn't hit them 100% (but congratulations if you did!). The key to growing a business is consistency, because consistency breeds progress.
2] Set new goals. Do you want to hit last years' goal 100%? Do you want to pivot and start with a fresh new goal? Either way, write it down and be as clear and concise as possible.
3] Make a plan of action. Start with the big goal you want to hit, say it's monetary - you want to hit 6 figures by the end of 2023. Great!
Now work backwards and break that goal into bite sized pieces. You can break it down into quarterly milestones or monthly - whichever is more feasible for your business.
4] Once you've established those smaller, easier to digest pieces, write down the things that you need to do to get there. To reach 6 figures, how many of each service would you have to sell? Or how many people do you need to sign up for your course?
Perhaps those action steps include reevaluating your pricing structure so you can take on less clients at a higher percentage - work smarter, not harder!

Ok, now that you've established your goals, broken them down into bite sized pieces, and made a plan of action... now it's time to GET MOVING on them. Nothing happens without actual action. Even if you feel like nothing is happening, trust me - it is. Keep chugging along and check back after your first quarter to see just how far those baby steps have taken you. Do a happy dance and get back to the grind.
