Welcome back to another solo episode! This week’s episode is an unscripted, short & sweet episode, packed with value. If you have been feeling in a funk since the start of the New Year, feeling like your year is off to a slow start, you are not alone. In this episode, I dive into what to do when you don’t hit goals, a recap of January 2020 for my business, & how everything can drastically change for you and your business in only a week.


Favorite Takeaways From This Episode

  • If your January didn’t pan out how you thought it would, you’re not alone.
  • When you set goals, you need to remove the emotion behind them.
  • Look at goals as projections and targets & data instead of drama.
  • Our worth is not tied to our economic value. We are worthy regardless of the value we produce in our business.
  • Normalize scary goals. Triple whatever goal you have in mind.
  • It’s not about whether or not you hit the tripled goal, it’s about how you reverse engineer the goal and set the targets up correctly so that the daily tasks that you’re doing align with the projections you set.
  • Reverse engineer your goals in order to hit them.
  • Get crystal clear on how many clients you need, how many leads you need to talk to, etc. in order to make $10K a month.
  • Set monthly, 90 day, and yearly targets. But so much can happen in your business in only 7 days. 
  • If you feel like you’re putting in a ton of work with nothing to show for it, remember that everything can turn around for you within the course of the week.
