What would your 1 Minute Video be about?

Since starting the 1 Minute videos back in April, I’ve been talking to people about how I’ve been making mine and what content and apps I’ve used. This has been in general conversation, 1-2-1 training sessions, on a radio show and also on a Facebook Live.

Basically, people are talking about them!

I think everyone has a 1 Minute Video Series inside them but my question is….

What would your 1 Minute Video be about?

Funnily enough, I’ve recorded a video about this topic and you can watch the video HERE!

If you need any help putting these together or you want to run past your own series by me, let me know!

Here’s to a fantastic 2019!

Can you still see your goals?

For some people, they might not remember their goals from the start of the year whilst some will know how they are tracking.

For me, I set a number of goals at the start of the year and then made mini goals based on them. These have changed throughout the months but I know how I am doing against them and what I need to do to hit them.

Here are a few questions I would like to throw out to it today:

Can you remember your goals?
Firstly, did you write them down? If not then can you remember them? If you did write them down, how are you doing compared to them and if you can remember them, write them down NOW! This way your goals become real and not something just inside your head.

Do you need to change direction or change your goals?
If you are in the wrong direction (but can still see the goal) or have you lost it and the goals are no longer relevant or not achievable. Whatever the answer, use this time to refocus and make your goals achievable. Create mini goals and work towards these to start implementing change.

Who can you get into your business to achieve them?
If it’s a case that your goals are still achievable but you need support from others, make the decision whether to get them in. It could be the difference between you hitting the target or missing it. The short-term cost could pay dividends and kickstart you to a fabulous 2018.

How can you increase your awareness or visibility to increase sales?
Are there any events you can attend or can you increase your social media presence to improve your results? If this is something that could make or break you hitting your targets, decide whether to change this now.

Review your products and Services, are they working for you? 
This is a great time to review where your revenue is coming from and which services are bringing in the best return on investment. If you keep doing the services that are bringing you the best revenue, you will be hitting your targets quicker than focussing in what’s not.

What are your 3 goals for the rest of 2018?
So, after you have reviewed all of the points above, decide on three goals that will help you from your business. From these three goals, break these down into the next three months and work towards them. This way you will be more focused for the rest of year and finish 2018 on a high!

Good luck and speak to you soon,
