Turning your ideas into action

Turning-Your-Ideas-into-action_Pinterest.jpg

A few weeks ago I shared a few pics of my CEO retreat I held for some of the leaders in my team. You may have noticed sticky notes EVERYWHERE! 

 

I may have a slight obsession with sticky notes. Sticky notes are my favourite way to do a massive brain dump of all the ideas I have in my business. Then I organise them into themes and then I create an action plan. My action plan includes tasks and dates to achieve them by. 
Then I do it. 

I wanted to share you the exact process we went through to create our 2019 Business Action Plan. 

First we did a SWOT analysis of our business. We all had a pile of sticky notes and I went through a series of questions to identify our Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats to our business. Each idea was written on a sticky note.

We started with Strengths.

I asked: What is working well in your business? What are some of your strengths? What are you finding joy in? 

Next was Weaknesses.

I asked: What isn't working so well in your business? What skills could you develop? What are you avoiding?

Then Opportunities.

I asked: What opportunities have you identified for your business? What are some of your big bold ideas?

Finally Threats.

I asked: What do you feel is a threat to your business? What concerns you as a possible threat? 


Each idea was put on a sticky note and we placed them over on our Strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats windows.

The leaders the worked in pairs to shuffle all the ideas into common themes. 

Finally they all selected two sticky notes from each area to create an action plan. The action plan included the task, the plan and a timeline. 

We all then had a workable document to take action on our big ideas!!! 

What’s your fav way to get the ideas out of your head and into a plan?

Being an introvert with big bold goals.

Being an introvert with big bold goals.

Did you know that I'm EXTREMELY introverted. The type of introvert that would be more than happy alone in a cabin, faraway in the mountains. With books. And wifi. But I don't think my family would be up for that haha.

I get asked how I built my business to be a multiple six figure organisation while being so introverted and to me, its simple. My DREAMS were bigger than my FEARS. Trust me, my fears were huge. But my dreams and determination to get there were so much bigger.

Do you have an employee or entrepreneur mindset?

Do you have an employee or entrepreneur mindset?

I've always had entrepreneurial tendencies. At 18 when I moved to Melbourne and started working for a nanny agency, I started working on plans about how I was going to create my own agency and by the time I started managing childcare centres, I was looking around for potential sites to start my own. But as an entrepreneur by heart, an entrepreneurial mindset is critical for those wanting to start their own business.

The #1 way to bring joy back into your business

The #1 way to bring joy back into your business

Feel like you need to add in a little joy and spark into your business? My favourite way to bring joy into my business is well.......gratitude. Seems pretty simple and a little bit fluffy, BUT trust me it works.

I was listening to a podcast by Kerwin Rae and he was speaking with an entrepreneur who had lost his wife. One of the most difficult things that could happen to anyone and he was still able to practice gratitude. He expressed how he was just so grateful to have ever met her and had her in his life.

My December Book Stack Review

My December Book Stack Review

I didn't do much over the Christmas break, but I did however READ! I read these five books in the second half of December while I had a bit of a phone detox! I took all my social media apps off my phone and only jumped on at night while doing a little bit of work.

A phone detox opened up loads of extra space for reading and of course spending time with the family. Want to know what I read?

Oil Spotlight - Easy Air

Easy Air is certainly a winter must have and one we'll go through a few bottles of over the winter months. As soon as theres a hint of a sniffles, a cough or a scratchy throat, its straight into the diffuser.  I also love making chest rubs with just coconut oil and Easy Air for the chest, back and feet before bed when needed.

Made up of Laurel Leaf, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Ravensara, Melaleuca, Lemon, Cardamom, Raventsara, this blend gives off a minty, airy aroma making it a fantastic blend which creates feelings of clear, easy breathing.

Why Diffuse Essential Oils?

Nearly every doTERRA blend can be diffused! This is great as it allows us to use the oils to for their most noticeable characters, their scent!

By defusing the essential oils, we are able to use one of our most powerful senses, smell, which can influence our surroundings and the way we feel. The powerful blends of doTERRA allow us to be able to influence our emotions, simply by the oils we diffuse.
