January.....A fresh start is always fun!

"The average person who develops the habit of setting clear priorities and getting important tasks completed quickly will run circles around a genius who talks a lot and makes wonderful plans but who gets very little done." ~Brian Tracy

Today I received Julie Anne Jones' newsletter in my inbox. It was full of some really great stuff.

One thing she focused on was a fresh start. How do we magically transform ourselves just because the calendar says January instead of December? Yes, we all have past resolutions that we didn't accomplish. And don't get me wrong, having goals is a good thing.

But she(Julie Anne Jones)suggest looking at the single steps or actions vs. the 1,000mile journey. Sometimes the journey can seem very long and difficult if it's not broken up into smaller pieces. So, focus on a few smaller steps that you can do each day and or week.

Below are a few direct sales-related actions that she recommends. Pick a few of these and begin moving forward NOW!

1. Get your office completely organized so you love working there
2. Set up one-on-one coaching times each week with your key team members
3. Start a "Host of the Month" club (click here to read about how to do that)
4. Commit to hold an opportunity event every single month
5. Make it a goal to learn at least one new thing every week and implement it in your business
6. Join a networking group or your local Chamber of Commerce
7. Make at least five booking calls and five recruiting calls every week (this one action could literally double your business this year)
8. Hold at least eight parties each month

The important thing is to get started. Commit to those actions so you are moving towards the end result!

BELEIVE Success!
