Our business is one in which we work to drive our clients to achieve their dreams and goals – often, we take advantage of natural breaks in the action or milestone dates in the year to particularly pitch.  It’s not that there is a special and material difference to starting to work with us on January 1st versus May 17th – it’s just that people are wired to want to start something new at the turn of the calendar page.  Today, I want to disabuse you of this notion.

Know that tightness around your chest when you have a ton of work to do, are wondering if you are going to be able to pay payroll, and are not spending enough time with your spouse and/or significant others?  How about looking at your balance sheet and wondering how you’re going to get out of that nagging debt and start building wealth for when you want to be able to exercise the choice to stop working (or at least working as hard)?  There are folks out there that are peddling the business version of the cabbage soup diet – “just do “x” and everything will be great in 10 days!”.

You know better.

You know that everything worthwhile requires work – hard work.

My message to you at the beginning of this year is that it’s possible, it’s achievable, and it’s not overwhelming.

Either talk with us or find a good service provider to help you figure it out. Within 90 days you should be experiencing significant relief.  By year’s end, you should have significantly more wealth than you do now.

Of course, that assumes that you aren’t doing the business equivalent of midnight snacks and cheating….
