WHY are you in this business?
What do you want as a result of being in business? What do you hope it will achieve for you in your life?
What do you want your life each day to look and feel like?
Why do you do the things you do, and in the way that you do them?
What kind of pace do you want to work at? What kind of pace will allow you to do your best work for clients, the kind of work that makes them go “Damn! THANK YOU!” and gets real results for them, beyond what they even imagined or thought to ask for?
What kind of standards, boundaries, policies and protocols are you setting up in your business that allow you to have the kind of pace you want in your work and life?
Are you actually following and honoring the standards, boundaries, policies and protocols you’ve set up, or do you step over them and allow clients to as well? How is that serving you?
How are you choosing your clients? Are you taking on any ol’ client you can get or engaging in steps to ensure you working with ideal clients so that you can work to the standards you have in place for your business and life?
Are you working with them in ways that allow you to actually accomplish your standards, ideals and goals. Are you settling, or do you say “no” to anything that is not in support of them?
Always remember your why and set your business up so you can create the business and life you want.
