Okay, it’s time, all you dreamers. Time to plan for a new year. Where you look is where land. So it’s time to plan where we are going to look this year. Get out a piece of paper, and start dreaming. Create that vision, restructure that vision, revamp that vision. Map out goals in every area of your business – things like creating product, networking, social media, branding, target marketing, selling, etc.  Write down detailed action steps to get there. Dream in broad strokes and story boards. But also dream in numbers and details. Don’t dream for just enough, or just enough is all you’ll get. Dream big, and even if you fall short, you’ll gain big. This is not a puffy little thing you do just so you have an excuse to sit at Starbucks all day. This is probably the most important thing you will do all year. It doesn’t matter if you put it on pretty pink paper with shiny stickers, or cheap recycled notebook paper with dog hairs and coffee stains. What matters is that you do it.  And if you wish, get a partner. Do it together. Share your plans. Hold each other accountable. And if you want to share some your dreams for 2014, we would love to hear them, no matter how big or small they seem.

Happy Planning All You Motivational Speakers and Dreamers!
