December 'tis the season for planning- especially if you're an entrepreneur.
Today is the second day of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway series - Small Biz Essentials.
Read on to find out how you can access some cool 2015 planners and even win a free copy of Leonie Dawsons 2015 Biz Calendar.
During the giveaway I'll share with you tools & resources online business owners use to run their business. And, I'll be giving away a copy of the tool I use to random commenter (see more details at the bottom of this post)
Planning on it's own won't make or break your business. But without taking the time to plan, it's unlikely you'll get to the destination we crave. And, doesn't December feel like a great time to plan? To reflect on what's happened in the past 12 months and dream big about the coming year?
[Tweet "What we focus on expands...good enough reason for me to spend time planning for 2015. "]
Below are a list of some of the planners I know about. The truth is, I can't recommend a specific planner, because I use a combination of 3 myself.
In my experience it's not a one size fits all approach, but something you refine for yourself, year after year.
But the bottom line is, it's important to:
- reflect on what worked & didn't this past year
- make adjustments
- and then set your compass for the upcoming year.
