A few months back I listened to a training message on organization from Party Plan Coach Lynsey Jones. She’s got a series of training materials on what she calls the Diva Success System and so far I’ve really liked what she has to say. Lynsey tackles managing her business by establishing a series of tasks—daily, weekly and monthly, that she focuses on to ensure she’s dedicating the right amount of time to the things that matter most.
If you are interested in growing a thriving home-based business, here are three of the things she recommends doing every day…
1. Get “dressed to hair spray.”
I accomplish this goal most days, but will admit that every couple of weeks I decide to stay in my sweats for a good thorough housecleaning. No need to get bleach on the one pair of jeans I can still get buttoned, right? Wrong. If we “work from home” we’ve got to be ready to do business any time the phone rings.
2. Talk to three new people.
Lynsey’s requirement for achieving this goal is that all three meetings with these shiny new people have to be face-to-face. She says that if we aren’t booking enough shows it’s because we aren’t meting enough people. Sounds like good sense to me.
3. Mail a physical note of gratitude or recognition.
This one’s fantastic for building relationships and also plays on the age-old law of attraction. What we give, we receive. I’d sure love three people contacting me about my business (and/or my sheer & utter fabulosity) every day. It’s really not a secret that we get back what we put out there.
