Mid-year Review

July 13, 2012

Unbelieveable though it seems, we are already at the half way mark of 2012.  This is a great time to review your business goals, strategies and actions.  First, go over your goals:  if they have expired, let them go.  If they are completely unrealistic, revise.  Remember the acromym SMART?   Your goals are more available to you if they are Specific, Measureable, Actionable, Realistic and in Time.  The goal, “I will make $100,000 gross revenue from my book sales and entrepreneurial courses from July 15th-December 31, 2012”, is an example of a SMART goal for me.  Once you have created 3-5 goals, then look for the strategies you will need to focus on in order to fulfill.  From there create the actions needed to fulfill the strategy.  Book sales is one strategy to garner $100,000 in revenue.  Research publishers, find an production editor to edit more book, create a key presentation in order to sell the book, book speaking opportunities, etc., etc.  These are all actions to take inside the strategy.  Each strategy will probably have different actions.  To revise your plan, or even create one from scratch will take some time and energy, but it has a healthy ROI–working “on” your busines, not in it, will have you positively positioned for growth.

Take the time now for rethinking and revise your plan.  Then, get into action!  You only have 6 months to go!
