It seems like the end of 2014, from Thanksgiving right through into New Year's Eve went faster than ever. I know, for me personally, it was a crazy time. I'm working on a few really exciting projects for the new year, I spent time with family and I was able to travel the East Coast to attend some incredibly powerful marketing seminars and take a few classes to make sure that I keep my skills sharp. During that time I also had the opportunity to meet and talk to about a dozen business owners from all over the United States. Their businesses ranged in size from small start ups with only two full time employees, to large corporations with over 100 employees and millions of dollars in revenue annually. The most exciting thing about each of these individual business owners, is they were all focused on their goals for 2015. Even the ones that weren't sure how they were going to grow, seemed to know how much they were hoping to grow and where they wanted to grow.
What about you?
Do you have goals for 2015? I mean specific, hard core, written down goals? If you don't, I suggest you take out a piece of paper and jot down some realistic goals. Don't be vague. Don't write "I want my company to grow". Be specific "I want 50 (or 500, or whatever number of) new customers this year", or "I want to increase sales by 25%". Then start thinking about your plan to reach those goals. What do you need to do every day, every week, every month to move closer to your goals? If you want 50 new customers, you need to make one sale per week. How will you do that? Will you advertise? Will you hire more sales people? What will it take for you to reach your goals? Do you have a budget for those things?
