For me this is the most exciting time of year and the time of year that sets the pace that will determine my success for the rest of the year.
September is here! Yeah!!! And the question I have for you is, “Are you ready?”
You see the sooner that you start to prepare the more you will get out of it. Things quickly get busy in the fall season and you are going to miss out on opportunities because you didn’t take the time to prepare now.
So what sort of things should you be preparing?
1. YOUR GOALS
We are coming up to the time of year when you can get the most results for the least amount of work. People have had their rest and spent their money and now need a way to make more as the Christmas season approaches. How many people do you want to recruit between now and Christmas? How many new customers do you want to add? How much money do you want to be making by the end of the year? These are all great things to figure out when you are not in the rush of the season. They should be firmly set, so that as the season progresses you keep yourself going in the right direction and you don’t get distracted by other things.
2. YOUR SCHEDULE
This one is the most important. You need to determine now when things are still quieter how much time you are going to have to work on your business. Get a monthly calendar and put these things in it.
Your work schedule (if you have one)
• All your family’s activities (such as sports, extracurricular, religious) anything that happens on a regular basis
• Appointments (Doctor, Dentist, Bank, Hair Dresser) anything that you already have booked
• Prospecting times
• Regular team training times
• Other business activities that you do
One way that is useful for helping to keep everything on track is to highlight you schedule according to what category it falls under. So you can use one colour for work schedule, one for family and appointments and then another colour for your business activities. This makes it very easy to determine in one glance what is going on in your day.
3. YOUR MATERIALS
Have you received your Fall brochures, catalogues or recruiting material yet? This is a great time to get it all ready and if you have kids get them to help you. I know by this time in the summer my kids when they were little were getting bored and looking for fun things to do, so I let them help me and it got done quickly. Then when the time came to hand them out I wasn’t scrambling to get it ready in the midst of all the other things I had to do.
Do you need training in a specific area to help boost your business in the fall. The beginning of fall is a great time to figure out where your weak areas are then get yourself a program that is going to help you in that area. If you are looking for training on recruiting and how to talk to people about your business then check out MLM Success 101 and get the training you need for only $19.
Here is an area that many people struggle in and if they realized the truth, they could be set free from it forever and start seeing the results that they want, and that is…
5. SELF CONFIDENCE & SELF ESTEEM.
It is reported that 85% of people in North America suffer from it and they don’t have to.
There are ways to overcome it. I had to overcome it. In fact, if I hadn’t you wouldn’t be reading this blog post, because I never would have had the courage to write it!
When I finally realized that I didn’t have to let how I felt about myself stop me from doing anything I wanted in life, it totally changed me from the inside out. No longer did I say to myself, “I can’t do this.” Now I say, “What do I need to learn to be able to accomplish this goal and where can I find the training I need to do it?” I don’t look at how impossible it is, I look at the first step I can take to start moving myself towards it and YOU CAN LEARN HOW TO AS WELL.
It takes time and effort, but the best thing you can do is recognize what is there and start to change it.
So now is the time for you to get started and working for a great Christmas season.
