So I can’t believe I am asking about September already! We are 3 quarters of the way through 2017, only 3 months left until 2018. The speed of time never ceases to amaze me! So how was your September? Did you get everything done; are you on track for your end of year goals?
September has been pretty awesome for me but I will get to that in a minute. I just want to tell you about something I was learning about yesterday. I am currently go through the process of becoming a certified partner with my mentors company. I have been a partner for a while but he has recently changed the format of how it works so I am going through this process to keep up to date.
Although the training is going over things that I have covered before, it’s still really valuable and helpful to go over it again. Yesterday I went through the module talking about the importance of having a strategy. I found this really valuable as it helped me to look at it from a different point of view.
He went deeper than just having goals and plans. He looked into a time management strategy and a financial strategy. By knowing how much time you have and how much money you have you can make your goals and planning even more focused helping you to reach you goals faster.
So if you’re feeling that maybe you have not achieved as much as you would have liked so far this year, then use the last three months to make a change.
Workout how much time you have a week to spend on your business. Work out how much money you have to spend on a weekly or monthly basis. Then make your plans around it. For example my limit for money this month is $180, so I worked out my Facebook ad campaigns around that; I am running 3 Facebook ads all at $2 a day each so I know that will cost me $168 a month, keeping me within my limit.
Having a strategy helps to keep you on track and moving forward. September has been a great example of how well this works. My September strategy was a simple one; to complete the Quick Start Challenge. I have been posting about it and making videos about on my FB page and YT channel so I’m not going to go over it all again, apart from to say that doing the QSC gave me that strategy about exactly what I was doing and the time I had allocated to do, and it enabled me to achieve more than I ever have before!
So it really does work. I am now building my list (a little slower than I would like because of the double opt in strategy) and driving traffic to my offers. Now I have to build on this, keep doing it, rinse and repeat, tweaking it and making the process more effective. That is what October is going to be about for me, as well as getting certified and starting on the road to the 6 figure club!
What are you going to do in October? How are you going to plan your time and money to work the most effectively for you? Leave a comment and let me know
Bye for now 🙂
