Raise Your Glass: Now You Have it All

New! Listen to this Post


Can you believe it? 2017 is approaching at lightning speed. I went to TJMaxx {yes, I’m a maxxinista} the other day + all the Christmas decorations are out already. You’ve got to be kidding me! We haven’t even had Halloween yet.

Is your business ready for 2017? 

This year has had lots of ups + downs and twists + turns. But as we approach the holidays there is still time to hit this year’s goals. Well, unless your goal is to marry Bradley Cooper. There still might be time for that, but chances are slim. Even so, I found myself at a working lunch today planning for 2017. I was asked earlier this week to list my top 3 goals for next year. Are you fucking kidding me? We haven’t even made it through 2nd quarter yet! Oh, wait. Son of a bitch. I’m behind already. 

Do what works best for you.

I realize that what works for me may not work for you because we are all different. But if you have my framework you can joosh it up to be your own. Using Evernote just has worked for me because I can visualize it like I can see the 4 million notebooks that sit around my office with notes scattered all over the place. But with Evernote, I can share it with my team + clients and we are all on the same page. This is not the only tool I use. We use Dropbox for files storage, Squarespace for this beautiful website and Mailchimp for list building + email. The key is that you have your basic structure in place and then pick the tools of your choice and make that work for you. If Word Docs are your jam, then jam that out, man. Just get your foundation nailed down because all the other stuff will just come so much easier.

If you haven't watched it yet, go get Evernote School and I’ll walk you through this whole business map thing. So, grab a glass of bubbly + join me for some deep dive business planning.
