Blueprint of a First Year

Second and First

by NAILS Magazine | April 26, 2012

So you football fans already know the meaning of second and first, but for those who do not keep up with sports: I am making this reference in regard to the second business quarter, the first of the month, and my first attempt to get back on track with my goals and business plan.
The first step I have taken is to revamp the business goals for the year, since I have missed an entire quarter. I try to live by the saying, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” My second step was to create a 90-day plan to break the goals down to make sure I stay on track and don't get overwhelmed. What works for me is the 90 Days to Success Focusing System (principle 8) created by Jack Canfield.
This worksheet becomes great when you do it with someone and you both hold each other to task. You tackle three things a week for 12 weeks and report to your accountability partner. Period. The sheet takes away the "I would of", "could of", "should of" from your excuse vocabulary list. Try using it.

I created two 90-Day Worksheets, one for the salon and the other for myself. I used the NAILS Career Handbook business-building articles called “Calling All Clients: 67 Ways to Fill Your Chair in 6 Months" and "How to Market Your Services When You Are First Starting Out” articles to develop the worksheet for myself to assist me with getting started in the industry.
