How to Create Your 2019 Strategic Plan in 7 Simple Steps

Have you created a plan for your business, your goals, your success in 2019? If not, you are likely leaving a bunch of money (and time) on the table. Taking the time to plan for your business allows you to look at what is and is not working, and make smarter choices about how best to run it.

Here are 7 simple steps to creating a plan for your business in 2019:

  1. Block 3 hours in your calendar to plan
  2. Look at your 2018 financials – clean them up if need be!
  3. Decide where you will focus, and what you will stop doing and offering in 2019
  4. Set Revenue, Expense and Profit Goals in a spreadsheet
  5. Determine how much time it takes to create and deliver that quantity of services
  6. Make sure that fits in a real-life calendar
  7. Block 10% of your calendar for white space

How to Sell with Authenticity and Improve Your Sales Mindset with Nikki Rausch

Do you struggle with sales conversations? Do you fear coming across as pushy, aggressive, or smarmy? Do you wish sales could just. be. easier?

Nikki Rausch is Your Sales Maven, and in this episode she will tell you about the framework she has created called the Selling Staircase. This framework provides a structure for you to know where you are inside a sales conversation, which helps you know exactly what to say next.

Skip a step and you risk your clients banging their shins, or not wanting to move forward with you: Nikki explains each step of the Selling Staircase to help you understand the flow of conversations.

We also talk about sales mindset, and how there is a decent chance that a negative sales mindset is infiltrating your sales process, dragging down your revenue, and sabotaging your potential. With myself as an example, we discuss a blind spot I had that Nikki shined a light on, that resulted in buying signals floating right past me, unobserved and uncapitalized on.

I cannot recommend highly enough that you check out Nikki’s website and trainings at YourSalesMaven.com.

Listeners, please share your takeaways in the She Thinks Big Facebook Group. I really do want to know what stood out to you from this episode.
