2016 Creative Business Planning – Make it fun, creative & productive!

Wow, I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to enjoy a break for the holidays. It’s been very busy here at the HQ for the Center for Joyful Business! Seems everyone wants to get in their last coaching for the year and get set up for the new year so they can hit the ground ready to go!

Last week I had a fantastic VIP Creative Business Retreat for the amazing Marie Fratoni of GetClientsEverywhere.com

She is the leader of a successful professional women’s group here in Atlanta and has multiple lines of business. She was ready to get clear about how to grow her business with ease and fun. We came up with a spot-on plan to double her revenue and work with more clients easily doing the type of work she loves.

Plus we created an art project in between coaching, planning and strategizing to keep our energy in our body and not caught up in just our heads. It works every time!

I am also thrilled to share with you a new product I have created that is perfect for this time of year. The Vision Map Creation Package. You get an oversized Vision Map template to doodle, paint, color your own vision-come-to-life! Plus, you receive a special Future Self Guided Visualization and an Ideas and Inspiration Audio. What a powerful and fun way to start off the new year! See the details below. 

Meanwhile, enjoy today’s Miracle Marketing article and audio for some ideas about how to get started with your own creative business planning!

En-JOY the week!

2016 Creative Business Planning – Make it fun, creative & productive!

Do you get excited about planning for the next year?

I know some of you love the planning process maybe even have all your calendars, sticky notes and markers ready!  And some of you just don’t like planning at all and keep putting it off!

No matter where you are with your planning for this year, here are a few helpful tips to make your planning time creative, fun and successful!

1.    Make it fun and beautiful.
Forget any images of hunkering down to plan.  The feel of that is very constrictive and so your ideas will be small and constrictive. Instead, gather beautiful supplies like colorful sticky notes, markers, favorite pens, and calendars. This signals that you are going to create! You are expansive, full of abundance, joy and play. (It’s amazing how this helps shift your energy when planning, really!)
2.    Get out of your office.
I am a huge believer that your environment influences your ideas and your Flowmentum™. Take your supplies and your ideas to a place that is inspiring and the energy is flowing – like a café, a beautiful hotel lobby, a weekend cabin or even move to another room in your home. Most of all – get away from your office and your computer!
3. Nourish your creative spirit.
Make sure you have plenty of water, snacks and some light background music at the ready. Embracing your ideas and deciding which ones to say yes to, which ones to let go of and which ones to let rest until their time,takes a lot of physical, mental and even emotional energy. Stay hydrated! Water keeps your energy nourished and moving.
4.    Celebrate then plan.
Before you dive into those juicy ideas, take a few moments to review the last year and celebrate. Acknowledge your wins, your successes, your big decisions, what you let go of and what you embraced that took courage. You’ll be amazed at the JoyFlow of the year and it will fill you with confidence for planning the new year.

Remember, what you are developing in your creative business plan is going to be loved, nurtured, used, reused, redone, and tweaked all throughout the year. This creative plan can be your guide throughout the year to help keep you from being lost, overwhelmed and in doubt. It will be your north star each and every day so you can make decisions easily and you will know where to focus your time, energy and money.
