In response to last week’s article, How to Reinvent Your Business in 7 Easy Steps, I decided I needed to take my own advice <g> and put myself to the test. Here’s what emerged:
"If I could start again, knowing what I know now, what would be different?"
1. Would give up in person speaking/networking and get 95% of my business from online means
2. have only a handful of clients and they pay well (for coaching)
3. Have VAs to whom I can farm out work
4. Find another masterfully skilled VA (internet marketing) to serve on my team
5. Have 10-15 info products/membership sites that I sell online. These make up the majority of my income.
6. Earn at least $3000/month from affiliate revenue/passive income streams
7. Only work with clients 2-3 hours per day. Spend the rest of my time writing and in product development
8. Write a book to showcase my expertise
9. Travel 1-2 times per year to powerful/relevant conferences
10. Create a highly focused niche for my biz
11. Participate in a Mastermind group
12. Create profitable strategic alliances at the beginning of things.
1. Have no credit card debt
2. Go into my office on my own schedule, where I don’t have appointments/commitments to others that keep me chained to my desk
3. Have a 4-day workweek and 12 weeks of vacation per year
4. Pay more attention to my surroundings — live in a town in a part of the country with great amenities, good weather, and a lower cost of living (love that house in HI on House Hunters with the open floor plan and 4 lanais that sold for $1 million)
5. Have more free time/fun time with Eric
6. Worry less!
7. Severely limit my involvement in extracurricular/outside activities
8. Spend more time with family and friends
9. Become passionate about a hobby
10. Take better care with physical health–not permit weight gain, poor exercise, etc.
