It’s that time of year when we are thinking about what we’ve accomplished in life and business, and the goals that have eluded us this year.  Planning what we are going to do differently next year to make it happen …… wait…. before we go any further…… you are doing that, right?  Because it’s the first step to being able to reach your goals next year.  Before you can do anything else you have to see where you are now, then determining where you want to go and finally plan out how you’re going to get there.  Okay good, I was just checkin.  

Maybe you’re not reaching your goals as fast as you want to, or you weren’t able to quit your fulltime job yet to be full time in your own business.  Maybe learning a piece of tech to take your business to the next level took up way too much of your time and you haven’t been able to implement it yet.   No matter what it is, all you really want to do is coach. I get it. You are not alone in this, I promise. All coachpreneurs experience these things, and more, at varying degrees. (Yes, even the guru coaches started at the beginning).  It’s part of the journey.  

But an even bigger part of the journey is creating a solid vision for yourself, your business and untimely your life.  The most successful entrepreneurs take stock at the end of the year, vision and plan out the next stage of their business for the coming year based on the vision they have for their live.  

 What does your dream life look like?   What about your dream business?  How are they fitting together? Sometimes it’s not so easy to picture it all.   Try asking yourself the following questions.  Write down your answers so you can see it all laid out in front of you when you go to write out the vision for your ultimate dream life and business and plan for 2021!
