=> one more marketing coaching call + 2019 planning happening this week
Are you ready for 2019?
2019 is right around the corner. Let's take the time to prepare for our best year yet!
In this year's Prosperity & Profitability planning session, we will:
Review what worked in 2018 (and what didn't)
Visualize a better 2019 (and how to make it happen)
Document our plans, both big picture and a first quarter To-Do list
This is a 3-hour working session on Saturday, not a lecture. Be prepared to work, think, plan, ask questions and get feedback. We'll have the tools, time and space to create a workable plan for the coming year.
You know what they say: Planning is good, but doing is better.
But it is tough to get into action when you don't know what to do, isn't it?
So if you are tired of spinning your wheels and not making progress, come to this short but powerful planning session so you can hit the ground running in January.
Can you believe there is still one more Marketing Coaching call in November?
How cool is that?! Join me on Thursday at 1 PM Pacific to get your laser coaching session. You'll be inspired by other members, get feedback, advice, or whatever you need during your time. And you'll leave feeling more confident and optimistic. Really.
As the year starts to wind down, I find myself counting my blessings--one of which is YOU! Thank you for everything. I am grateful that you are in my life.
Here is one of my favorite quotes for the season:
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow.” ~ Melody Beattie
Have a lovely long weekend. The DIY will be closed Wednesday through Friday, November 21, 22 and 23; the office reopens on Monday for Action Calls. See you then!

Try Virtual Masterminding on Friday
Need to be with your tribe, but can't make the local on-site Mastermind meeting? The virtual Mastermind meeting gives you (virtually) the same experience. Except you don't have to drive, find a parking spot, or even get dressed.
On the Mastermind meeting agenda this week:
We're start the meeting with a Haiku introduction. Quick, easy, super simple. Haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Powerful when you get it right.
Next, we'll look at one of my best thinking tools: the bubble chart. You'll find out why I love it and how it can help YOUR creativity and productivity.
Then it's on to laser coaching and masterminding, followed by a spin of the prize wheel. Someone will win, and it could be you. If you're there, of course. See you there?
=> How to WOW your new clients + on-site networking training + more...
Want to WOW Your New Clients?
