Our world is such a noisy place, especially now more than ever. On many of my recent client calls I have said something to the effect of “Sorry to say that I don’t have the secret manual of how to run insert-your-name-here’s business!” I offer it tongue-in-cheek (and with love of course); however, it is true that there is no magic formula to follow (even though we can wish it were that easy).
I was just sitting here at my desk wondering why most entrepreneurs aren’t where they want to be. And I really think that it is because they haven’t set up a marketing system.

Finding the space and time to identify the most critical things to focus on in your business is the first step in getting the right things done. As a solopreneur, help can come to you in many forms: from the children’s morning carpool to a personal assistant who can help with errands and organizing.

You probably don’t have any problem with setting your goals. Now I want to know if you know how to achieve your goals…because not everyone does. For every goal you have, you have to believe that it is possible and that it is possible for YOU. Do you believe that you are not good enough, smart enough or deserving enough?

Are you clear on what you want? The beginning of the year is a great opportunity for you to get your dreams on paper in all of the areas of your life. Although you are a business owner, it is important to recognize that your business is a part of your life–not separate from it. It is important that you determine how it fits into your life.
