What are your most important lessons from 2018? What are your goals for next year? It’s time to plan. The world will need you again in 2019…
— Let’s plan your training business goals for 2019
In this week’s episode, we’re focusing on 2018 in order to be able to focus better on 2019. Does that make sense? Think of it this way: you need a retrospective of 2018 to have an informed perspective of 2019.
You have made mistakes this year and figured out what not to do next time. What were those mistakes? You need to use that knowledge so you don’t repeat them.
You have also made some breakthroughs this year, haven’t you? Perhaps you won new training contracts and delivered new programs to new clients. How did you do that?
You have delivered some fantastic training and received some well-earned feedback. What did you do to earn those testimonials?
Once you feel confident that you have understood 2018, we are then going to use 4 steps to ensure that we consider where we want to be this time next year.
To do that, I am going to ask you to consider 4 questions and answer them thoughtfully. No need to rush this process. It may take time to clarify exactly what it is that you want for next year.
4 is a nice, achievable number. So let’s keep it simple. Here are the questions:
1. What are your revenue goals for 2019?
2. What are your marketing goals for 2019?
3. What are your relationship goals for 2019?
4. What are your investment goals for 2019?
This is the last episode of the podcast in 2018. Thank you for your support and comments in 2018. We’ll return again in early 2019 with a new announcement as well as a new look and feel.
Happy Christmas and a Prosperous New Year in 2019
