The holidays are coming and they will be upon us soon
The advice I keep hearing is…
- Slow down
- Take it easy
- Nothing will happen between 10th December and 10th January
- Enjoy Christmas
- Be happy with where you are and what you have
- Enjoy the festive season.
Quite honestly, that advice is bullshit!
Whilst I don’t want to appear like Scrooge and say ‘bah-humbug‘, I do want to get you out of the mindset that Christmas starts on 10th December and ends on 10th January. It doesn’t, for me it’s 24th, 25th and 26th December and then New Year’s day on 1st January. If you are serious about growing your business, in 2019, then you need to be doing what your competitors are not willing to do and work right up to Christmas. Can you really take a month off and do very little?
The truth is that most small business owners simply can’t “relax and take it easy” and that is because they never do enough during the year to free themselves of their struggle to survive and pay the bills that comes as a result of mediocre sales and marketing actions.
People who promote new age, esoteric advice like “take it easy” are encouraging a mindset that isn’t doing you any good.
My advice for you is that no one is going to save you!
No one is going to pay for your family or your retirement. No one is going to pay your mortgage and no one is going to pay your tax bill, or VAT.
For the rest of December 2018, and throughout 2019, you need a different mindset. You must use every moment you can of every day to create sales.
This will ensure that you accomplish your goals, happiness, security, confidence and dreams!
Right now, I have two ways that can help you do just that.
- I can mentor you throughout 2019 and help you to make significantly more than you did in 2018
- We can do your marketing for you with our in-house team.
