If I ever did a list of Amy’s Favorite Things (in honor of the one and only Oprah), today’s topic would be number one.
We are talking about PLANNING. Specifically, planning for the new year.
The best part is that thanks to my guest today, you can be a pro at calendaring no matter who you are. Anne Samoilov is a launch expert and when I say she knows how to plan…I mean it!
Get ready to hear her amazing, no-fail-formula for planning an entire new year of promotions, partnerships, and personal business goals.
I’m giving you a solid plan for completing your 2017 promotional calendar from start to finish, and here’s what’s great: it won’t take much time at all.
Even better, you don’t need to take any notes, because I have everything detailed in this incredible freebie! It is a quick guide to everything I share with you in this episode, including a list of questions you must ask yourself before you add anything to your calendar for the year ahead.
In order to plan you will need to reflect on the prior year and drill down on what worked and didn’t work for you. Then, adjust for the year ahead. Anne and I give you the questions you will want to ask yourself before you calendar anything.
And, another great thing about today’s episode is the way Anne approaches time off. While it isn’t exactly what you think it might be, you absolutely must include it on your calendar.
There are five categories total that you will want to “calendar” first and foremost — time off being the first one.
So stop whatever it is you are working on for your year ahead and listen to these steps first.
If your calendar for next year is swirling in your head or only partially laid out in a Google doc, this episode is for you. This approach makes planning your 2017 promotional calendar easy — even when you aren’t sure of all of your specifics yet.
