LEt's talk about profit!
"Here’s the deal, my friend: Profit is not an event. Profit is not something that happens at year-end or at the end of your five-year plan or someday.

The BIGGEST problem I see when it comes to setting personal, professional, and business goals, especially around this time of year...
Great end game goal but NO performance goals!
In other words, a ton of thinking / planning / plotting / mapping / dreaming / vision boarding goes into creating SMART goals for the year, and not nearly enough 'who does what by when.'
Your performance goals are the specific steps you or your team will take daily, weekly, monthly, and quarterly to ensure that you will achieve your end game goal, and are planned AND measured weekly. (Ideally with someone external holding you accountable.)
I absolutely love reading and learning new things. Good job really as I have to keep current for my business!
My vote is for a book that's had an incredible impact on my life - The Inside Out Revolution (The Only Thing You Need to Know to Change Your Life Forever) by Michael Neill.
Totally life changing stuff! It gave me a completely different perspective on life and helped me to really see how success and happiness can be effortless. I can't recommend it highly enough!
