Planning To Generate Money In Your BusinessMar 27, 2023
We've all heard the buzzwords, planning, intentions, goals, and how to generate money.
But what do these things mean?
How do you move from turning a vague idea into a clear intention?
How do you then formulate that intention in ways that give you clarity about how to generate money?
And what new habits can you incorporate into your daily life to help move you forward with achieving everything you desire?
Clearly Defined Goals Tell You How To Generate Money
I can't stress enough the value of having clearly defined goals. They provide purpose and direction for your hard work. To help me get clear, I do an exercise called 'The Inventory'. This highlights key attributes like:
- Good communication
- Good people skills
- Humour, and so on
What key attributes can you serve you in your business, and are you using them to their fullest extent?
Look Back To Plan Forward
When you plan for the year, quarter or month ahead, it helps to look back on where you've come from to see what's worked well and what you might want to change. This information helps pinpoint where you want to grow your business and how you will do it.
Let me be clear: setting your intentions and goals isn't a once-and-done scenario. The best approach is to write them down, then review them several times to flesh out the plan and ensure it's comprehensive and excites you.
Committing plans to paper is the first step in creating something tangible you can physically see. If everything is left swirling around in your head, you'll likely keep ping-ponging around without focus. Make sure you keep your written plan where you can regularly refer to it and be reminded where you're going – out of sight is all too often out of mind!
Build A Vision Board
Never underestimate the power that a visual representation of your dreams can bring. Create your vision board and pop it up in your office so you can see what you're working towards every day. Be sure to build in some rewards for all your hard work as well – one of my favourites is a coffee and catch-up with a friend.
Honing Your Personal Habits
Marrying great life habits with a focused business plan is like manifesting rocket fuel! It shows you're all in with your vision and ready to make your dreams happen. Whether you like it or not, success doesn't just appear as some brilliant breakthrough. Oh no, it's the small things you do consistently every day that bring about real change.
Let's look at a few habits you could try…
A gratitude journal is hands down the best tool for positively impacting your mindset in all areas of your life and business.
Weekly Intentions List
Having set goals and made your plan for the year, it's helpful to chunk things into smaller weekly intentions to ensure you don't feel overwhelmed.
If we're not learning, we're not growing! A lack of growth means you're limiting your opportunities to create success. That doesn't necessarily mean you have run out and do a degree. Simply reading personal development books, listening to podcasts or taking short courses expands your mind and knowledge beyond where it is.
Networking And Accountability
Meeting other like-minded women creates opportunities to connect and collaborate on interesting and exciting projects together. There are likely many professional women's groups in your area and meetups.
Accountability buddies are another great way to connect and stay motivated. Get together regularly and share our intentions for the week and successes from the previous week.
Pure Clean Water
This may sound silly but hear me out! Your brain needs water to function correctly, so you achieve better results by staying hydrated because you're more focused and have more energy. Keep a water bottle on your desk and fill it up regularly throughout the day.
So, now your plan is made, and you have some new habits to support you in generating money in your business, It's full steam ahead implementing it. Believe me, you will feel so much fulfilment and pride when planning makes your dreams come true.
