Plan your Direct Sales Business with a system – Step 4

The key with systems is to not to re-invent the wheel each time you do something in your business. Instead, when something works, you repeat it over and over. Then it becomes a system and if the system is good, it will create great results over and over again.

That’s how I created the Direct Sales Planner “system.” It is designed for you to create habits that help you run a smooth and well-oiled machine in your direct sales business.

I believe in having simple systems, and that’s why I’m sharing the 4-step process to planning a successful week in your business. When you PLAN to have a successful week every month, soon you’ll find you’re not only getting things done, but you’re wending your way to achieving those big goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year.

Here’s what we’ve covered so far in planning your week with the Direct Sales planner system.

  • We began with step 1 setting weekly goals by creating a one hour Sunday night ritual. It’s important to write your weekly goals in ONE place in the weekly planner page in the Direct Sales Planner system. When you review these goals every day, it keeps you focused on achieving and accomplishing your goals each week!

 

  • Next in Step 2, I shared a time blocking exercise that helps you get clear with working in 3 hour blocks of time to get things done! This time blocking exercise helps you focus on what is truly important because you now know how to juggle family, life and your business.

 

 

  • In Step 3, I shared with you the POWER of writing down THREE priorities on each day of the week. We talked about your long to-do list and how to prioritize what’s important. Then writing down those three priorities in the space which is HIGHLIGHTED In your planner so you know exactly what to focus on each morning when you connect with your planner at your desk.

STEP 4 is simple but powerful

Planning your weekly dinner menu

You may think planning your dinner menu has nothing to do with running your Direct Sales business, but it’s one of those habits that I believe frees up your mind so you can truly “focus” on your business each day. In fact, this week I met with a leader and was showing her how to use her planner going over these four steps and when I showed her step 4, planning the weekly dinner menu’s, her eyes lit up and she said, “This is so helpful. I get it! “

Figuring out “What’s for dinner” every day takes a big chunk of your time, but if you make it part of your weekly plan each week, (in your Sunday night ritual planning) you’ll find you get more done in your day every day. This is because you are not only organized with your shopping lists, but your mind is clear about feeding your family, and when a woman knows her family is taken care of, she is happy and confident in running her home based business.

Plan your Direct Sales Business with a system – Step 3

When you plan your week ahead, you set in motion your goals, your time and your priorities to have a successful direct sales business.

Today, is step three in this 4-step process of planning your Direct Sales Business   using the Direct Sales Planner system.

  • We began with step 1 setting weekly goals. It’s important to write your weekly goals in ONE place in the weekly planner page in the Direct Sales Planner system. When you review these goals every day, it keeps you focused on achieving and accomplishing your goals each week!
  • Next, I shared a time blocking exercise that helps you get clear with working in 3 hour blocks of time to get things done!

Now, you are ready for Step 3

STEP 3

Writing down Daily Priorities

When you order the Direct Sales planner, you’re invited into a special secret Facebook group where our mantra is

“What gets scheduled, gets done!”

The Direct Sales Planner “system” is designed for you to run a smooth and well-oiled machine in your direct sales business.   The key with systems is to not to re-invent the wheel each time you do something in your business. Instead, when something works, you repeat it over and over. Then it becomes a system and if the system is good, it will create great results over and over again.

In today’s busy world, it’s so easy to get caught up with a very long to-do list that seems endless in getting things done! If we try to get everything done  on that list, you find yourself getting stressed, burned out and overwhelmed.

The Power of 3.

When you focus on your priorities to get things done it allows you to spend time on the important things that brings you the best results. So, this requires you to make decisions on writing down THREE priorities for each day that ultimately helps you achieve your weekly goal.

Why THREE PRIORITIES? They say our brains understand, remember and feel a sense of completeness when things come in threes.   Three has a rhythm. Three’s have a structure of a beginning, middle and end to our thoughts or story. Again, it’s a pattern and they say our brain gives more emphasis to anything when it sees a pattern. For example, there is

  • ready, set, go
  • gold, silver, bronze
  • Goldilocks and the three bears.

So, setting THREE priorities from your long to-do list each day as it is laid out in the Direct Sales Planner, will help you FOCUS on what’s important and each week achieve small goals that eventually help you hit the big ones that make a difference.

You can see how this is all fitting together like a system…

  • You begin with your Sunday night ritual to plan your week
  • You write in your Direct Sales Planner your weekly goal
  • You then figure the time you have to work your business to achieve the goal doing the time blocking exercise.
  • Now, it’s coming together when you set THREE daily priorities to actually get things done!

Now you’re getting that feeling of being in the flow in your business. Once you accomplish those three daily priorities, the rest of the day is a bonus. You’ll find you have more energy, more creativity to devote to more of those items on your to-do list.

Plan your Direct Sales Business with a System – Step 2

There are FOUR simple steps to planning your business with the DIRECT SALES PLANNER system and running your business like a well-oiled machine.

Yesterday was Step ONE where I shared with you the importance of setting weekly goals. It’s easy to set weekly goals in ONE place in the weekly planner page in the Direct Sales Planner system. Now you have a path to follow for the week and a place to review these goals every day.  This keeps you focused on achieving and accomplishing your goals each week!

Now, let me share with you the second step to planning your week!

STEP 2

Planning with Time Blocking

Step 2 is a crucial piece to the 4-step system because it allows you to be successful in getting things done with a weekly time structure. When you figure the amount of time you have available to run your business each week you are organized and feel more in control. So many people run from the hip and spend too much time being distracted with social media and other things, by the time the week rolls through, they have not accomplished what they wanted in their business.

The Direct Sales Planner “system” is designed for you to run a smooth and well-oiled machine in your direct sales business.   The key with systems is to not to re-invent the wheel each time you do something in your business. Instead, when something works, you repeat it over and over. Then it becomes a system and if the system is good, it will create great results over and over again.

The value of doing this time blocking exercise every week helps you get the best results in having high sales, consistent bookings and many new recruits joining your team.

A special time blocking exercise is laid out in the DIRECT SALES PLANNER on a weekly planning page with instructions to figure out how many 3 hour blocks of time you have to work your business each week. And, it’s important you do this every week, because every week changes right?

Time is the most precious commodity we own. Our time! And there are 168 hours in one week. In the Time blocking exercise we

  • look at things you’re committed to every week, like taking kids to school, or perhaps you have a full time or part time job.
  • Then we review what lifestyle events like attending the gym, or family dinners are scheduled.
  • Once this is done, you now know exactly how many blocks of time are left in your week to work in your business.

When I do this exercise with my clients, we find at least 5 three-hour blocks of time available for your business. If you don’t devote at least 15 hours a week to your business, you really don’t have a business, you have a hobby!

It’s a wonderful thing to know exactly how much time that you have each week to devote to your business. In each of those three hour blocks of time, you take action on

  • Planning and organizing your parties with hostess coaching and follow-up.
  • Arranging coffee chat conversations with prospects.
  • Scheduling time for your follow-up work
  • Setting dates to plan and hold team events in supporting your team.

As the saying goes, “Time waits for no man!” so doing this weekly TIME BLOCKING exercise every week is the answer to hearing yourself say. “Help, I can’t get it all done!”

Plan your Direct Sales Business with a system – Step 1

Would you like your Direct Sales Business to run like a well-oiled machine?   It can happen if you “plan!” Most importantly, plan your business every week.   When things run like a well-oiled machine, you feel organized, there is much less room for confusion and you get great results! Results like successful parties, and future bookings and people who say “yes” to joining your team.

The Direct Sales Planner “system” is designed for you to run a smooth and well-oiled direct sales business.   The key with systems is to not to re-invent the wheel each time you do something in your business. Instead, when something works, you repeat it over and over. Then it becomes a system and if the system is good, it will create great results over and over again.

For the next four blog posts I am going to lay out a weekly plan working with the Direct Sales Planner system that will help you run your direct sales business like a well-oiled machine!

  • In Step 1, you will discover how to plan with a Sunday night Ritual and set weekly goals.
  • In Step 2, I will share with you an exercise on how to create blocks of time to help you be consistent in your business every week.
  • Step 3 is about being clear with setting daily priorities to take action and get things done, and
  • Step 4, believe it or not, is all about a dinner menu that keeps your well-oiled system running like a charm.

STEP 1

Planning with weekly goals

 Your weekly planning begins on a SUNDAY NIGHT! I call it the Sunday Night Planning Ritual. What you need:

  • Direct Sales Planner
  • Scheduler (online or offline)
  • One Notebook
  • Your favorite pen
  • Green Sticky Notes

Don’t leave your week to chance and think you will get it done on Monday. If you plan on Sunday night you are ready and have a structure for the whole week.

Set Weekly Goals .   The benefits of setting weekly goals is enormous, because they are usually smaller sub-goals that are part of your big overall yearly and monthly goals. Taking action on lesser goals each week is that step-by-step focus on truly achieving the things you want in your business.

To set your weekly goal or goals you want to have clarity! So, ask yourself a few questions.

  • What do I want to achieve this week?
  • How many parties have I scheduled this week?
  • How many MORE parties do I want to schedule?
  • How many are in-home parties?
  • How many are facebook parties?
  • What preparations do I need for these parties?
  • How many recruiting appointments have I scheduled this week?
  • How many customer service calls will I make this week?
  • What other follow-up needs to be done?

Once you answer questions pertaining to your personal sales, bookings and recruiting for the week you get a clear picture of setting your weekly goal.

A Simple System that gets results in your Direct Sales Biz

Well, it’s a brand new month  Are you looking at your calendar with BARELY any bookings or events?

What if you had a simple system to fill your calendar consistently every month?

Enter the DIRECT SALES PLANNER to the rescue!   In the Direct Sales Planner you have a simple step-by-step system to help keep your calendar FULL of bookings.

A full Calendar brings a full bank account!

Yes, it’s that simple?   When I first started my direct sales business, I needed $2100 to pay my bills every month! I made a plan to make enough sales to cover those bills (and more.)   I had three children in college and it was imperative that I hit those targets every month!   That meant I had to hit $5250 in sales every month to bring in the $2100 income! (I knew “exactly” the amount I needed.)

In the Direct Sales Planner system, we call this the MENU OF EVENTS! So, for me to hit my $5,250 target I could do TEN $500 parties, but sometimes one would cancel, so I made sure I mixed up with a menu of events.  Here’s how I did it.

  • I booked at least SIX parties with hostesses that usually brought me around $3500 (As I improved my skills, my parties got over the $1000 mark.)  That meant I had to find other ways to make up the $1750.
  • I LOVED to do private appointments and many of those usually added up to $200 or more. (Once I actually had a $1500 private appointment – but that’s another story.)   So, two or three private appointments every week brought in an extra $500 a week.
  • Next I scheduled my customer care calls every week. I had a specific follow-up system that brought in many reorders every month.
  • I also added catalog parties, or parties at my home. (Today you can add Facebook parties)
  • This MENU of events assured me of hitting my target every month!

The DIRECT SALES PLANNER system helps you adopt CALENDAR CONFIDENCE! This is a 3-step process that helps you keep your calendar consistently full of bookings.

Step 1 – is simply getting clear WHEN you want to book every 4 weeks!

Step 2 – is simply marking those dates with green sticky notes!

Step 3 – is simply offering your NEXT 2 dates FIRST!

Once you’re clear on HOW to fill your calendar, you then schedule your MENU OF EVENTS following the MONTHLY action page!

That’s the first step to working with the DIRECT SALES PLANNER system to having consistent bookings!

Next you work weekly!  I call it the weekly success plan. This is where you manage your time each week doing four things.

  • You do a time blocking exercise that shows you the blocks of time available for each week,
  • Then, you set weekly goals!
  • You write in three priority action steps for every day of the week.
  • Lastly, you create a special dinner menu for the family (this frees up more time for your biz) and you are ready to IMPLEMENT

A simple simple system that brings you RESULTS!   Results like my clients share with me…

Gale, this week I have a party with a hostess, two private one-on-ones, a recruiting appointment and a vendor event!

 They are trained to work their business with the MENU OF EVENTS!

They are trained to work their business scheduling their calendar!

They are trained to work their business with this simple system that brings the results they want!

Why Team Booking Blitzes Work!

Question: What is the number one struggle for most direct sellers?

Answer:   Having consistent bookings on the calendar every month!

Bookings are the heartbeat of a Direct Sales business. In an ideal world, everyone would always have consistent bookings if they simply were ASSURED that they got TWO bookings at every party. In other words, how would you feel if you “knew” when you held a party with your hostess that TWO of her guests would schedule their party on your calendar within four weeks? Wouldn’t that be AMAZING?

We know that getting two bookings from every party is the IDEAL way to run your business, but another IDEAL way to keep those bookings on your calendar is to join in a TEAM Booking blitz every month!

Booking Blitzes Work because

  • you are purposefully focused on having 6, 8, 10, 12 bookings every month!
  • When you participate in a TEAM booking blitz you dedicate time every month to INTENTIONALLY fill your calendar and have consistent bookings every four weeks. 
  • you are DELIBERATE in growing your business and having consistent bookings every four weeks.

A booking blitz is a monthly TEAM gathering where team members come together on a call or a zoom meeting.  The leader creates a challenge for team members to connect with hostesses to fill their calendar.  As a leader, it is one of the best ways to build confidence in helping team members always have consistent bookings every four weeks.

Here’s how it works in 4 steps

Step #1 Prepare for the TEAM Booking Blitz.  The leader schedules a pre- booking blitz call.   She shares the rules of the road and the duration time for your booking blitz. It could be a one hour booking blitz or maybe 24 -36 hour – more or less.  She shares a template (available in the Calendar Girls workbook) to share with team members so they are ready and primed to get bookings. This includes a list of people to connect with. The leader offers prizes and awards for team members who get the most bookings and sales.   She prepares the TEAM calendar to add many new bookings for the next month.

I always suggest to my clients they hold a team booking blitz on the third week of every month. It is essential to helping the team have consistent bookings. 

Step #2 Pre Booking Blitz call (on zoom). On this call the leader asks team members to bring to a list of people to call or connect with.  She reviews some scripts on what to say when connecting with customers and hostesses, and helps team members build their confidence in asking for bookings.

In the Calendar Girls Booking System, we use the CALENDAR CONFIDENCE SYSTEM so everyone is very clear with what booking dates they need to fill in the next four weeks.

Step #3 Support and encouragement DURING the Booking Blitz.  The leader usually is participating herself, but most of all she is connecting with Team members encouraging them to keep booking throughout the booking blitz time. Some leaders hold drawings for every 4 to 6 bookings that are added to the team calendar so everyone gets the chance to win prizes.

 

Step #4 Post TEAM Booking Blitz call (on zoom).  When the booking blitz is over, coming back to evaluate who was successful in getting bookings is the GOLD in learning from other team members.   The feedback everyone shares on this call are golden nuggets that help everyone get confident and comfortable with asking for bookings in the future.

My coaching clients have FANTASTIC results with their Team booking blitzes.  Mostly it’s a team gathering to help everyone accomplish having consistent bookings every four weeks.   One client has everyone on the team share a post in their team Facebook group how their team booking blitz has blessed their business!

If you are wanting more parties on your calendar join in your TEAM Booking blitz. If you’re a leader, follow the CALENDAR GIRLS team booking system where we have templates and handouts on holding this important TEAM event on the third week of every month.

Or better yet, schedule a 30 minute complimentary strategy session and I’ll share with you the finer details in having a successful booking blitz. Email me at mymentorbiz@gmail.com

Are you Craving Accountability in your Direct Sales Biz?

This week in my L.E.A.P. Group Coaching we did a whole session on creating accountability in your team and it reminded me what being accountable means to having a successful Direct Sales business.

As leaders, in order to gain your team’s trust and be respected you must be accountable to your team members. This is part of becoming a strong and dynamic leader. Being accountable is about being responsible for your actions in leading your team.

Those actions are shown through all the ways show consistency in your team. When you are consistent in supporting your team every day, every week, every month with your systems in place, your team feels loved and they know you are the place they will go to when they are in need for help and encouragement.

Accountability shows up in every area of your Direct Sales Business. Here are 4 ways to keep yourself accountable to your success in growing your Direct Sales Business.

#1 Accountability starts with you!

ACCOUNTABILITY STARTS WITH YOU as the leader!  You do this by setting clear expectations. You help team members be accountable to having successful parties.

You SHOW UP… You show up for company meetings, you show up for every convention, you show up for leaders retreats, you show up for new product launches, you show up for team meetings… you show up in your TEAM facebook page every day!

SHOWING Up for all these important areas of your business, starts with you – you are ROLE MODELING the behavior of showing up.. which shows to your team, that you are a responsible and reliable leader! And when they know that – they will take action, they will do the work!

In the L.E.A.P. Group coaching program, we work with the saying, “If it’s to be it’s up to me!”

#2 Systems make you accountable

Having systems in place for your team helps you track sales, bookings and recruiting. The CALENDAR GIRLS Team Booking system is a KEY system that all my coaching clients work in, so they know who is booking and when their parties are being held. This helps them connect with team members to support them with any obstacles, and more importantly to celebrate with them when they have a party success like a $1000 in party sales, or two future bookings, or a new recruit they met at the party.

In our L.E.A.P. Group Coaching program we work on specific systems to help you grow your business like

  • Booking and Recruiting systems
  • Time Management Systems
  • Goal systems

This week I left a LIVE video on my Facebook Biz page with a tip from my recruiting system.   Listen and watch here.

#3 Be accountable to your Calendar

Work on your personal business!  Keep your OWN bookings consistent and solid every week.

Track your team events on your calendar, and use your calendar to schedule all the important areas of your business that make your work successful.

Having a TEAM CALENDAR keeps the whole team focused on bookings. IN The CALENDAR GIRLS system we work with a power list, we call the 1 thru 31 list, where we list everyone’s names who are holding parties for the month. Team members love to be accountable to that list, and more than anything, they are supporting and caring for each other because they know everyone else is also booking and holding parties. They cheer each other on each party that’s added to the calendar

#4 Have an accountability partner!  

This is the BONUS of the L.E.A.P. Group coaching program. Each leader gets to have ME (my coaching expertise) as their accountability partner. Every week we connect via laser email with them sharing three things.

  • Their accomplishments for the week, which allows me to celebrate any successes they’re having
  • Any obstacles that are stopping them from moving forward. I usually get back to them within a day to walk them through an obstacle and help them overcome what they need to do to have success.
  • Their intentions going forward. When I know they are on the right track for them to moving forward, they get a big shout out from me and more coaching to help them achieve their next weeks goals.

So, what about you?  

Would you like to learn how to be accountable to your team?

Would you like to be with like minded leaders who have positive attitudes and want to learn?

Would you like to have an accountability partner who supports you (and may give you a kick to get you going sometimes) every week?

Then, step into our GROUP – the L.E.A.P. Group Coaching program. It’s very affordable!

The next time you say, “I wish I’d thought of that…” or
I wish I’d taken action on that sooner..”

Then it’s time to STEP UP to being accountable to YOU and growing your DIRECT SALES BUSINESS.

I’m a Believer (Live Video)

Last December I challenged my coaching clients to come up with 17 things they wanted to implement into their business in 2017.   Seventeen, or 17, is a lucky number in our family and we’ve had fun working on seventeen things.

One of “my” seventeen was to work on doing LIVE VIDEO in my Facebook pages.

This week I finally IMPLEMENTED this.   I did LIVE video’s in each of my private coaching groups as well as a live video in my Facebook Biz Page.

Oh my, what a difference!   I have 2,240 fans on my Biz page. I grew it very well until Facebook changed the rules and wanted us to “pay to play.” I joined the game and “pay” with boosting posts and some ads, but the number of people “liking” the page has grown extremely slow when they made that change.

After my video ran, it made me a Believer in LIVE VIDEO!

On my Facebook Biz Page, I usually get up to 50 to 100 views on my posts and very few “likes” and “comments.”

My LIVE VIDEO is my Monday Minute TEAM BUILDING tip!  I’ve been sharing Monday Minute tips since I became a Leader in Direct Sales.  They are short quick tips on growing your team and helping team members thrive and I love sharing a tip on Mondays. It’s the first of the week and it sets the tone for people to take action on something important in their business.

After I went LIVE on Monday this week, on my Facebook Biz Page, my LIVE VIDEO was up 400% and this is what FB Said…

This video post is getting more engagement than 95% of recent posts on your page.

 So, yes, I’m a believer in LIVE VIDEO!

My Monday Minute Team Building Tip this week was a “TEAM Recruiting Tip.”

March is a marvelous month for TEAM recruiting. When I was leading my million dollar team, both March and April were the highest recruiting months. I think it’s because SPRING has sprung and people are looking for new opportunities.

So, listen to my LIVE VIDEO about helping your team hand out THREE Recruiting packets to THREE prime prospects at every party in March. In this video I share with you the 5 people who are most likely to be your TOP prime prospects, and these 5 people are at every party!

Listen Here

When you focus on handing three recruiting packets to the people you determine are looking for an opportunity, you begin the first step to being a TOP RECRUITER!

Then, take a minute and leave me a comment below if you plan on implementing this TEAM BUILDING tip with your team.

And, come back again next Monday to my Facebook Biz Page and get another TEAM BUILDING tip. I have hundreds that have helped my team and my coaching clients’ teams soar to the top.

The Number ONE Hostess Coaching Tip to have a Successful Party.

This week I had a conversation with a private client about her recent parties. She was lamenting how some of her facebook parties were great and some were flops. I love this client because she is always reflecting on how she can improve in every area of her business and after we discussed the differences in the successful parties and the flop parties, it was so obvious that the success of every party is all about the HOSTESS relationship.

If you are a direct seller you know that some hostesses just don’t engage.  They think they just need to invite some friends and greet them at the door. The relationship you grow with your hostess must be one of trust so she will see the advantages to getting the “right” people to the party.

So you may be thinking the #1 Hostess coaching tip is to build that hostess relationship. Yes, this is crucial and I call it the BFF – best friend forever – relationship, but it’s still not the #1 tip.

The #1 Tip to having a successful party is…

Getting the RIGHT guests to the party.

Who are the right guests?   These are guests who are looking for a FUN shopping experience with their friends!   These people will be “wowed” by you when you offer them a fantastic learning adventure along with that amazing shopping experience. It will be so outstanding that they will be eager to order your products and say, “Wow! I had the best time and I want to hold my own party with you as soon as possible!”

This is what I call the WOW party success and when the following three ingredients come together…

  • Your relationship with your hostess getting the right guests to the party.
  • Your fantastic, fun demonstration that wow them.
  • Guests experience this amazing wow experience having FUN with friends.

Every party you hold will not only be a WOW Party Success experience for everyone, you will experience high sales, future bookings and meet recruit leads who are interested in joining your team.  

So, how do you get these RIGHT guests to your party? Aah, now we’re getting down to the real #1 top hostess coaching tip!

And to continue this I’ve made a quick video for you.

A Goal Setting Technique for High Achievers

I love it when I receive an my email feed from one of my beautiful coaching clients who had amazing success with her team in January.

The reason why one person succeeds over another is because they are adept at one skill, and that skill is setting goals, sticking to them and staying committed until they reach the goal. It’s so simple, and high achievers have this ONE skill nailed over everyone else.

I find so many people don’t like to set goals, and the ones who do,  set them and then forget about them. In fact there is a statistic about high achievers who set goals and the difference is they write them down, “AND” regularly review them in this graphic below.

I have a definite routine in achieving my goals which I laid out in my three–step planning process, but seeing my coaching client take this simple goal setting technique with her team in January, I saw the impact it could have on a whole team learning this skill.

Find a way to hit your goal!  Everyone wants to hit their goals and for some of us it’s finding a way to regularly review your goals and keep on track that makes the difference in having the success we want.

One of the FUN EXERCISES we did in my L.E.A.P. Group coaching program recently was teaching them the skill of tracking your goal backwards.   The people in this group are high achievers and are consistently on track to earn a fantastic company TRIP incentive or their next comp plan level!   They set their sales goal, and then I challenged them to use the “backwards goal” technique. It was vey powerful for them, not to mention they all DID IT! it was simply tracking their sales goal for the month backwards aiming to hit the ZERO number on or before the last day of the month.

Tracking your goal backwards is a fun technique I use with ALL my coaching clients – both private and group – and many of them use it to

  • hit a new level in their comp plan.
  • win a 6 month incentive trip.
  • increase their sales at their parties.
  • Get organized with a fortunate follow-up system.

So, my beautiful coaching client took this technique to an even higher level creating a special incentive for team members to hit their goals using the “backwards goal” technique. Her results were in the number of team members who hit their targets.  Here’s an excerpt from her email to me.

“I am so very proud I of each member of my Team!  They worked so very hard this month!  The difference was working the Track Your Goal Backwards Challenge.  Out of the 13 that were in it, 7 crushed their goal, which was awesome!  And then there were quite a few who were really close and I know gave it a really big effort this month!  I plan to repeat this again a few months, as everyone enjoyed the challenge.”

This is an awesome technique that helps you and your team members set the bar higher and higher.

Of course, I made a free printable for you to track your own goals backward.  Click the link to Grab your FREE handout now!     It may be the ONE skill that makes a big impact on your own goals this month!  Plus if you share it with your team you may get everyone on track reaching for the stars and hitting that fabulous ZERO number!
