3 Ways to Empower Your Business for the New Year

Some small business owners get into a state of panic at the end of the year, but I see it as a powerful time and a window of opportunity.

If you are like most solo-business owners I know, you have worked hard all year, faced countless internal  demons and overcame many obstacles. You may be beating yourself up because you still don’t have the cash flow you want, however I think it is a good time  to focus on what you have accomplished.

Here is a short and empowering process that you can do this week as  we move to the year end and year beginning. Follow this three part process to begin your next year with more focus and empowerment.

1. Vision Sit down in a quiet place and take a some time to envision where you want your business to be at the end of 2011. Small solo business owners need to have a clear vision and this is much more important than a written business plan. Your vision needs to be based on your long term picture and realistic as to how you want your business to grow. You can create a vision board for the year if you are a creative type.

2. Intention Be specific about clear intentions. The more specific the better in terms of what you want to accomplish. Imagine the success you will feel and  how meeting these intentions will affect your overall business in 2011. Being able to focus in this regard will  help you to overcome any inner confusion as well.

3.  Empower What can  you do to empower your intentions?  Putting it in writing, talking to your mentor or mastermind group or  do a ritual to move this forward. All these things will help you to overcome any fear or self doubt.

This is a great process to do with other business owners and a powerful way to walk into the new year. I hope some of you will share here. I would love to hear  from  you.

    Colleen- What a wonderful way to begin each work day. I love it!

    Carolina – I get away at least every other month- somewhere out in nature for a couple days. It is amazing how much clearer it all feels. So many small business owners jump right in and just “work,” without having the long term vision. Yes- it does do amazing things!

    Mark- wonderful to hear from you here. So glad you like my book too!! Let’s talk about the mastermind group. I may be able to help.
