Filed under: Your Plan

Now is the best time to plan for the upcoming year. It’s that time of year again. School is underway, the weather is probably getting cooler (depending on where you live), and the holidays are fast approaching (I know, I know—sorry to bring it up—but we all know it’s true!). Think about how you felt last year if you waiting too late to plan for the upcoming year. In the past, you may have waited until later in the year to do your annual planning, and I’m guessing you probably ended up feeling pressed for time with the holiday rush—parties are happening, last-minute gifts are being bought and wrapped, the kids are running around on a permanent sugar high during school break, and if you’re cranking out orders it may be your busiest season—and as a result, you only give planning a fraction of the attention it deserves.

Filed under: Planning & Goal Setting, Your Marketing, Your Plan

We have a way of dreaming big, us creatives. Each year, you create your list of things that will get you closer and closer to your ideal lifestyle and business.

But we always start our morning watching the Rose Parade. My favorite part, other than the beautifully artistic floats, is seeing the marching bands. There is a ton of excitement for these kids. Many of them are traveling that length for the first time, plus they get to be on tv! Maybe I love it because I…

To join in, register here and get both the pre-challenge workbook and the Class Workbook (25 pages of awesome content to go from 1,001 ideas to your best ideas!). On to todays lesson! My mom came to visit for Thanksgiving. Early Sunday morning, with a regrettably early flight, we set off to take her to the airport for her flight home. When we got out of our neighborhood, I realized you couldn’t even see the skyline of downtown Nashville. The fog was so dense, we couldn’t even see bridge overpasses until we were just about under them. Visibility was only a few feet!
