Episode 371: How to Decide What to Focus On In Your Business
The start of the new year gives boss moms the opportunity to refocus their business models— but what exactly does that mean? How can we begin to focus on our businesses in a world saturated with courses and advice coming from everyone with a social media following? In the first podcast of 2019, I narrow down three key areas that will help us hone in on the things that make our businesses great.
I want 2019 to be a great year for us, so let’s figure out what you’re going to focus on. -Dana Malstaff
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
- Look at what has worked for you thus far, and identify your gifts. Your gifts don’t need to be your passions, but the abilities that have helped you achieve success in the past.
- Find your set processes. The repetitive systems you use will ultimately allow you to scale your business and sell more without sacrificing your time.
- Acknowledge the work you do— and do not— enjoy. This, in turn, will help you identify the areas you should delegate to others and help you work smarter.
As online entrepreneurs, our goal is to create scalable businesses and courses that allow us to achieve sustained success without sacrificing more time. The only way to do this is to hone in on our gifts, establish systems, and delegate where necessary. 2019 is a new year with new opportunities. This doesn’t mean we need to look for entirely new solutions. Instead, we should focus on what’s been effective for us and refine the work we’ve already started.
