I’ve recently been looking for ways to brainstorm for 2013 goals, and how to keep moving my business forward. I guess that’s just natural around New Year’s.
Yesterday I mentioned Leonie Dawson in my blog. She is someone I recently discovered who is an expert in helping entrepenuers (mostly women, I suspect) grow their business(es).
She has a lot of super charged tools available, at a really reasonable cost, that are fun, easy and very enlightening to use. She jokingly says they are “spare change cost” – and she’s right.
My current favorite (and I still have a couple of her creations in mind to play with) is the 2013 Create Your Incredible Year Calendar & Workbook . This has been incredibly easy for me to use. It’s been very productive, and as a bonus, it has a lot of jazzy artwork in it. I did a lot of smiling while looking at it. It was very freeing to just brainstorm in response to her simple questions – and I got amazing answers!
One my favorite parts was the 2012 wrap up section that begins the workbook. It’s a great idea to formally close out the past year. She helped me clearly see how far I’ve come (a long, long way!) and summarize what I’ve learned in 2012. Also, I have more clarity on what I’m ready to stop doing – which is a great bonus.
Then it was onto 2013. I moved fairly quickly through the workbook, it was so enjoyable that I just kept at it, didn’t really want it to end!
And now I have a lot of goals for 2013. Goals that I’m excited about. Stretch goals, but not insane, pie in the sky goals. Goals with timelines, broken down into doable steps. Goals that I might miss, but I think there are a huge number of goals I’m going to hit too.
It’s going to be a great year!
Her website also has lots of free videos and articles. You can sign up for a newsletter too.
There’s a personal life version of the 2013 calendar, too. It’s all life changing (and highly amusing) stuff at her website! Hope you enjoy exploring it all.
