Set one SMART goal allowing you to work ON the business this summer




Between now and Labor Day is the perfect time to make a few strategic moves forward with your business. Whether you want to finish your business plan, create a marketing strategy, or define your sales process, dedicating just one hour can make a significant difference. During lunch over Zoom, you will have the prompts to define precisely how you are going to move your business forward by Labor Day. Here’s a simple, one-hour process to help you:


Step 1: Visualize (15 minutes)

Objective: Clearly picture your business goals.


  1. Identify One Key Goal: Choose one main goal you want to achieve by Labor Day. For example, "Create a marketing strategy."

  2. Imagine Success: Spend a few minutes visualizing the successful completion of this goal. Picture the steps you took to get there and the impact on your business.


Step 2: Strategize (15 minutes)

Objective: Develop a quick strategic plan.


  1. Set a SMART Goal: Ensure your goal is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-bound. For example, "Increase social media followers by 20% by August 31st."

  2. List Three Key Actions: Write down three specific actions you need to take to achieve this goal. For example:

  • Post engaging content daily.

  • Run a social media ad campaign.

  • Collaborate with influencers.


Step 3: Organize (15 minutes)

Objective: Arrange your actions and resources.

  1. Create a Simple To-Do List: Write down the three key actions in order of priority.

  2. Set Deadlines: Assign a deadline to each action. For example:

  • Post engaging content daily (start today).

  • Run a social media ad campaign (start next Monday).

  • Collaborate with influencers (reach out by the end of the week).


Step 4: Monetize (15 minutes)

Objective: Implement and track your progress.

  1. Start the First Action: Begin working on the first action immediately.

  2. Set Up Tracking: Decide how you will measure progress. For example, use social media analytics to track follower growth.

  3. Plan a Quick Review: Schedule a 15-minute review session at the end of each week to check progress and adjust your plan as needed.
