EP87: Planning Your New Year

Profitable Joyful Consulting

Dec 28 2021 • 22 mins

On the Profitable Joyful Consulting podcast, I teach you how to increase your profits and enjoy your business more. In this episode, you’ll learn how to plan your next year successfully.

The reflection I discussed in last week’s episode is the foundation for planning your business. Planning is powerful because it’s a space of pure potential of imagination, of dreaming - where you can really create whatever you want to have happen in your life and in your business.

And I promise, your plan doesn’t have to be a huge PowerPoint deck in a binder (because realistically, you won’t use it in your business). It can be practical and actually excite you to work in your business!

Making next year your most aligned, profitable, and joyful year yet all starts with planning. Learn how to set yourself up for success in this episode.

Key areas discussed:

  • 1:28 Questions to ask yourself to get more in touch with what you want to create in your business
  • 2:05 Why it’s helpful to create a vision board or write a vision statement for your business
  • 2:45 How to create a practical plan for your business that you’ll actually use and feel excited by
  • 3:12 How to decide what you want to bring forward into the next year and what you want to release
  • 6:50 Why you shouldn’t create a bunch of new stuff next year
  • 8:20 Figuring out your intentions for the next year in terms of tangible and intangible goals
  • 11:08 Why traditional business planning doesn’t work for a lot of people
