076: Three Easy Steps to Prepare for the New Year

Do you remember the excitement you felt at the beginning of a new school year? The anticipation for me began when I got to pick out my new backpack, a themed aluminum lunch pail (definitely dating myself…), and get loaded up with pencils, lined paper, and binders. For me, the preparation was half the fun.

Now, many years later, I still get those same butterflies right around the start of a New Year, but for a different reason. It’s an opportunity to do something new – to embark on a brand new journey that impacts every aspect of my life. So, the magic that preceded my childhood school years has now become the magic that precedes each New Year.

In this week’s podcast, I thought I’d show you how I close out the year with a simple three-step system I’ve been using for many years. It’s deceivingly easy to do with a pen, a notebook, and a few hours to reflect on the closing year.

I’ll show you how to identify the things you’ve done incredibly well (yes, there are plenty of them) and help you navigate the areas you want to continue to improve. Then, I’ll help you set up your calendar for 2022 and give you a list of allllll the things to consider, from staff birthdays to vacations and even content planning.

But before you hit the overwhelm button, stick with me. If planning and preparation are two words that give you hives, I’m right here to help you through it. A prepared business is a successful business, and a New Year is the perfect opportunity to make that happen!
