Turn Your Dreams Into A Business Vision!

Don't you have dreams, visions or plans about things you'd love to have or accomplish? Having the dream is the easy part. Making it a reality can be more challenging. However, the good news is that there are proven techniques that can get you from where you are to where you want to be.

Follow this process to bring your dreams to fruition:

1. Turn your dream into a goal. When you have a goal, you have a true target. For a greater chance of success, your plan should have a deadline and it must be measureable.

· It has been said that dreams are goals without a deadline. Give yourself the gift of setting a deadline and things will start to happen.

· You want your goal to be measurable because, if you can't measure it, how will you know when you've succeeded?

· For example, this goal is measurable and has a deadline: "On or before June 1, I will weigh 150 lbs. or less."

· Make your goal as desirable as possible without being unrealistic. If you feel that your goal is unreasonable, it's much more difficult to encourage yourself to actually pursue it.

2. Prioritize your goal daily. Read and write your goal each day.

· You give instructions to your brain thousands of times a day. Let your mind know that your goal is something more important than, "I feel like eating a ham sandwich," or "I need to stop at the grocery store on the way home."

3. Make a list of negative associations. You probably have negative associations with achieving your goal; otherwise you'd already have it. So make a list of all the negative stuff that pops into your mind when you think about achieving your goal.

· Examine that list and think of ways to work around those challenges.

· Each time you notice a new negative association with your goal, add it to your list. Things will tend to change over time, and new challenges will reveal themselves.

4. Make a list of all the positives about reaching your goal. How would it make you feel? How would it change your life? How would it change your perspective of the world and yourself? What would your next goal be?

· Make your goal as attractive as possible. Envision your life after achieving the goal. This will help to keep your motivation levels high.

5. What do you need to make your goal a reality? Do you need to special license? Do you need a laptop? Is there some knowledge you must acquire? Make a list of what you need and figure out how you're going to get it.

6. Catalog your available resources. Who do you know that could be helpful? What expertise or items do you need that someone else might have?

· Achieving difficult goals can rarely be accomplished alone; you're likely to need some help and guidance. Look at the list you made in step 5 and see what you already have in your life that could help you on your path.

7. Track your progress. Measure your progress each day.

· Tracking is critical to making continued progress. You can only adjust your approach if you know how you're doing. Consider making a chart if that's applicable to your goal.

In many ways, working toward a goal is like baking a cake: if you follow the recipe, you'll always pull a perfect cake out of the oven. Likewise, if you follow the above steps, you'll find it much easier to achieve your dreams. But what the above sentence does not speak to is, it might be super easy to bake a cake per the recipe and get AMAZING results. The trick and hidden nugget is how do then turn that backed cake into a brand, sales, and a successful business over time.

What I provided you above is a DIY method of a plan of action to achieve your dreams and goals. This is much easier said than done I have found. It was not till I attained my MBA that I felt I understood how to really make this process successful. To be super honest, even then with those amazing credentials I still found I was struggling. I finally realized I needed a business coach to really guide me one on one and hold me accountable. When I made this step I finally began to gain traction with my business. This new skill set combined with my MBA allowed me to feel unstoppable. I started applying techniques that were generating amazing results.

But with all that said, what NOONE talked to me about was the business burnout, the sleepless nights, the learning curve of social media, how to make a website that converted new clients, writing copy that was compelling, implementing organic lead generation to find new clients, integrating platforms for automation, and using metrics and bookkeeping software to measure how my business was doing. I had to fail miserably at all the above until I found the solution.

The solution was so simple, I now laugh at myself. Stay in my “Genius Zone” for 4.5 hours a day, and outsource everything else. Hire the BEST in their Genius Zone, for immediate and impactful changes. I knew in those moments I was on to something. I knew I never wanted another solopreneur (going it alone) to make the mistakes and missed opportunities I did. I knew it was my Genius Zone to guide business owners how to attain and maintain the MEGAprenuer status, while ONLY working 4.5-hour workdays.

Please do not be a Soloprenuer, wasting thousands of dollars and hours on learning this and that, only being so-so great at it and acquiring limited results. Feeling depressed and hopeless at the end of the LONG day. This is not the way. Learn from me. Do it the “MEGAprenuer Way.” Fierce Advisers is here to show you the way.

Once you have solidified your business dream (goal) into reality you need to cultivate your vision, put your resources in place, and focus on your “Zone of Genius” every day for at least two hours.

Your vision is the foundation of your business. Your vision becomes the WHY you articulate to the world, your brand, your color pallet, your fonts, your values around how you conduct business, and ultimately all gets wrapped up into your mission (your pillars). I am here for you every step of the way.
