To get you started on the right foot, I want to have you consider putting together a very specific forecast for the following year, like I did (you can read about that in this recent blog post). Doing this helped me to get really clear on what was required to get there, and probably most importantly, to believe it was possible.
Once I could see it on paper, I could believe that I could actually do it…but I also knew that I would need help to get it done.
When I finished my forecast, I reached out to my team and said, “I need you to help me map this out over two days.”
On day one, I said, “Here’s the goal: to reach a million. And this is how we are going to do it.”
In person, we talked about my forecasting sheet and looked at all the different aspects of what was needed, then created a big to-do list.
Day two is when I said, “Now let’s make it real by creating an actionable plan that can be measured.”
Using a year-at-a-glance calendar and sticky notes, we started putting different things on different days. We scheduled every aspect of the marketing, every aspect of a product creation and put them on sticky notes on the calendar, moving them around until it all fit.
We reverse-engineered the million-dollar-plan by starting with the end in mind and going backwards to create the plan.
Of course you can do it on the computer in your project management software, but the key is that it’s easier to do this when you are with people who are good at planning, lists and processes, especially if you’re more creative and visual.

Just be sure to pick a day for your live planning session right away, then commit to finishing your forecasting sheet – maybe three weeks from now, three months from now, whatever it is, as long as it gets scheduled. That way, you’ll also have a deadline to get your forecasting sheet done.
Don’t know where to begin with your forecasting sheet, or don’t believe you can hit that big goal? Don’t have a team or assistants in place to help? That’s where we come in. We do this in our program, if you don’t know where to start or you feel overwhelmed with the idea of doing this alone.
We help you 1) believe you can actually do it, 2) map it out, 3) reverse-engineer it, 4) come up with the actionable plan, and 5) make sure it gets done by lovingly holding you accountable and making sure you always have the guidance you need to overcome any resistance that comes up along the way.
We are here to help you remove the self-doubt, get past the overwhelm and reach those big goals. We are standing by to hear more about your current situation and give you a plan.
