Power up your 2022: seven steps to success in 2022
Happy new year! I’ve always loved new beginnings. It’s so exciting to think about the possibilities of what’s to come.
The beginning of the year is naturally a time when we gear our thinking toward what we want the rest of the year to look like. My aim for this episode is to provide a starting point for you to set the path for success in your business this year.
In this episode, I share 7 steps to success to help you move through your year with intention and focus. I talk about the importance of planning and goal setting and why this needs to be done throughout the year, not just at the start.
I share my thoughts on taking focused action, setting boundaries, being aware of the key drivers in your business, and why it’s so important to understand your business model. I also discuss the value of investing in your business and prioritising joy.
After listening to this episode, jump into your calendar and set aside some time to take action on these success steps.
What could you put into play this year?
Where do you want to take your business in 2022?
Topics We Covered:
[3:00]: #1: Planning and goal setting. These are things you should be doing regularly, not just at the beginning of the year. This allows you to build your business with intention.
[4:20]: Planning is about understanding what you want to achieve and reverse engineering into a set of clear actions so you know what you need to do.
[5:15]: #2: Take focussed action. A lot of business owners get stuck in busy work. Understand your zone of genius and build your business from there and zero in on that. Think about how you can introduce team and tech to support that.
[7:30]: #3: Measure your metrics. Data informs decisions to know what’s working and not working. Understand the key drivers in your business so you know what to take action on.
[9:15]: #4: Set and instate your boundaries. Many people struggle with this due to a strong desire to be of service, the blended nature of life and online business, and an addiction to work.
[10:25]: Some truths about boundaries:
Boundaries are a constant. You’ll always need to work on them.
It’s your business so it’s your choice.
Boundaries are not fixed. It’s okay to shift the boundaries as you and your business evolve.
[11:00]: #5: Invest in you and your business. Getting support will help you get to the next level.
Tools, systems, automations
Outsourcing and resources
Investing in your own growth
Hire a coach
[13:15]: #6: Your business model. Building a business is much like building a house. The foundations need to support growth. Think about your business model and structure and how it fits now and into the future.
[15:00]: #7: Prioritise joy. Be aware of how else you have joy in your life. What else do you want in life aside from success in your business?
[17:35]: Recap of the 7 success steps
[18:25]: The bonus success step is implementation. Taking action is what will bring about change and create results.
[19:45]: How to work with me. Join me for a Business strategy day or my 6 month Business Accelerator Program.
