The THREE Things We Do EVERY Quarter to Set Ourselves Up For Success
Rachel Smiling

Today on the Business With Impact podcast, we're officially back from our mid-season break and I'm so excited about what we have coming up on the podcast for you.

We've been working on episodes about productivity, lead generation, the 20% of activities that generate 80% of the results, the mindset shifts that happen as we grow, and how we run our business in four hours a day, four days a week—we're talking about team building, organic and paid traffic strategies, and so much more!

And in today's episode, as we kick off a new season and a new quarter, let's talk about the three things we do every quarter to set ourselves up for success!


At 2:04, We jump right into Step 1: We must DEFINE our destination. In order to get to where you want to go, you have to pick a destination first, right? We do this with any other aspect of our lives, so why don’t we do it with our businesses?


At 6:23, We move right along to Step 2: We must CREATE the plan. I take you through how we determine what needs to happen in the next 90 days in our business in order to achieve the result. Who do we need to become? What actions do we need to take? I discuss actionable steps all right here.


At 7:14, We go right into Step 3 (the most important and often the most missed step): We TRACK the data. Just like you wouldn’t plant a garden and then forget about you, so it’s the same with your business. You have to track the data to see what’s actually working.
