035 Goals Setting for Success
Happy Birthday Trish Ann aka Mommy! Last week we got clear on why we are doing this, so with that in mind, our focused goal is in place. I covered creating SMART goals on the blog last week if you need more detailed help with goal setting check out that blog post. Vision set , goals established , re affirmed the goal and vision with these answers and are super clear on why. We take our 2 goals and Break them down into monthly objectives. Each month gets a clear focused assignment, for example, this month we are focused on Goals next month will be Planning and so on. All of this is to help us create our master plan for implementation next year. The destination is far easier to reach with a roadmap and plan in place. Specific -Measurable -Actionable- Realistic- Timely Without a clear goal, we are not going to be very effective in our business because we will lack a central focus. Make sure the goal that scares you a little. Stretch yourself to reach further. Next episode we will begin creating the plan to help up reach these goals. Links Smart goals

034: Clear Goals Start With WHY
Our WHY is now coming into play, this is going to give our GOALS direction We should have two main goals at all times. An overarching ultimate goal and the current year goal. This may sound counterproductive at first like chasing two rabbits end with none. But in this case these two are mutually beneficial yin and yang A simple example is a blog and a blog post you have the main carrier the blog but it’s the blog post that makes it viable you can't have one without the other both are necessary for the other. Everything you do moving forward needs to lead to both of these goals. What is that you really want? Be honest with yourself. This is your chance to create exactly the type of lifestyle. I wanted to be a hair stylist until I realized that was not the life I really wanted. A business that is solely dependent on my singular abilities, plus crazy hours and crazier client expectations! No thank you. Why is it important to you? Keeps you up at night. Why is it important to the person you want to serve? This is important because these answers are going to drive our decisions with the goals and objectives we set in our strategic planning exercise. Links: SMART Goals

033 Clarity with Mind Maps
The last episode we did a brain dump and let our imagination run wild to get the vision piece out of our heads. Now that We have the vision, let's get clear and put these thoughts and ideas into Order that make sense. Mind mapping is basically a visual tool to help structure your thoughts into Logical next steps using drawings and words. For a visual example of what this looks like just google mind mapping and look at images results. Not the creative type like me then you can use outline type of format or my favorite colorful post-it notes to create a cohesive framework for our detailed strategic plan for the year. However you decide to create your framework make sure that everything Leads to one main focused idea, goal number one so to speak.

032: Creating Vision for Strategic Business Plan
Side Hustle month we're talking all things side hustle and starting at the beginning. Vision and Mission are the topic on the show this month. September begins the fourth quarter of the year, and I want us to go into the new year with a clear vision goal and plan. With us being at the beginning of football season, like I tell hubby in the 4th quarter plenty of games have been won and lost. Not just getting started that's ok too every year we need to reboot so to speak and still have a fresh plan for the year just the same. Get a piece of paper and pen, get in a quiet space and just imagine what you would like the next year to look like. That's it it may seem simple but quieting our minds and just focusing only on the end results can be a challenge... especially if you have kids or husbands lol! stay there until you have the vision write down only points to remember with no limits. We tend to have what I call a "Dream Ceiling" it's possible for someone like Oprah… remember she wasn’t always "O", so why not for us? Vision is from God, limits come from us. "Anything a man imagines in his mind to do he can do it" -Napoleon Hill Visioning what we want to see in our business in the next year is complete, then we move into Creating a tangible vision board that we narrow down our focused goals to accomplish. Preferably using actual paper and supplies but if not you can use Pinterest, Just try and stay focused on the task at hand as Pinterest can lead down the rabbbit trail of lost goals. While creating your vision board ,think about ways to diversify our income by things you are already doing and include these ideas.

031: Are you a Broke Entrepreneur or just Broken?
While reading an email from Michelle Talbert from Her Power Hustle with the question is your target audience broke? Made me think about my own "broken" mentality of Being cheap and over protective is holding me back. Broken in your mindset of lack. We buy what we want to buy. We find resources for what we want. I truly believe what you think about you bring about and what we say is what we see. Don’t give everything away. This is a business folks ain't gonna ask Chanel to take 20 dollars off them bags. Be mindful of this while pricing your products Mentions Michelle Talbert Her Power Hustle

029: The Feast and Famine of Entrepreneurship
Being young and idealistic can make you shoot for the moon, without even a dirty mattress to catch you. At least that's my story of early failure or as we tried and true Entrepreneurs say... lessons. There are no failures only a lesson on what not to do the next time! On today's show I share how a false sense of security shook me in my 1st attempt at launching a Business. How using your Side Hustle as a Launching Pad to financially support you in the early transition. Never begrudge small beginnings in business or life. Don’t let somebody else's journey make you try to follow suit. Their journey is theirs you have your own path to follow.

027: Stand Out from the Crowd
There was a great analogy about being your Authentic self in Business on an episode of Podcasts sessions by Podcast Movement 15. It spoke about what is your "est"? Like Garyvee is the crazi'est' and Ellen Degeneres is the funni'est'. You Differentiate yourself from the market with what makes you special. Is it your wit, sweetness, Whatever it is it's in Your DNA. Your unique fingerprint so to speak. When u don’t use your individuality you become Cookie cutter and add to the noise.

026: Dreaming is key to Business Success
You must have a dream to first to be able to see it become a reality. In today's show Jenae will share some personal struggle and how to stay focused in the midst of adversity. The reasons why you need to keep a clear focus on the dream and what is really important to have it become a success. Also, how Entrepreneurs deal with the blessing and curse of having the gift of Vision to see possibilities. "Discipline becomes dormant in the absence of a dream" Rory Vaden Can't walk where you can't see and being an Entrepreneur is Hard. Not wanting to work for somebody else is not a good reason to start a business because ultimately your customer is your new "Boss". Thee dream must be top of mind or priority otherwise we loose clarity and focus which leads to the dreaded shiny ball syndrome. As they say you can't chase two rabbits... well you can but not to any success. Hope deferred Makes the heart sick but when the desire comes it is the tree of life.

023: Power of the Paycheck
Perspective matters When you begin to look at your day job as your first investor in your dream business you have a new perspective on it. Don’t begrudge humble beginnings I personally am not built to jump ship with no lifeline, I am more productive having the "stable income" as I build on the side. Done it hated it - so focused on income I never could build. It was paralyzing to me, but some folk can and need to burn the boats to really see it through and they thrive in that sink or swim atmosphere. Baby chicks or Eaglets need their wings to develop before they can fly and leaving the nest. Horses walk almost immediately and if they don’t there is a problem My tribe are chicks and that’s okay.

017: Business Cornerstone
I want to take a step back and make sure that we get the Cornerstone of our Business right. Think about this Cornerstone. Now days you see them as decorative or commemorative parts of a building but the roots of the Cornerstone was to be the first stone laid in the foundation of a building, which determined the placement of each subsequent stone. I want us to make sure that our Cornerstone is set in the optimal place so that once we have made it to completion our footing is sure. So before we pick a niche, a name, a WordPress Theme we will check the condition of our heart and set it toward gratitude with humility and unselfish love. These ideas are indeed Biblical, Ephesians 4:1-2 exactly. I can guarantee if you align your most audacious goals with these core principals we will not waver when a price you never imagined comes with a price you can never repay. Links JenaeNicole.com
