Oooo we’re soo close to Christmas now, I can taste it. This is the best time to set yourself some really hard deadlines to “get stuff done”. Nothing like a deadline to be more productive.

So what do you want to get done before the holidays hit?

  • Your first web video telling your business’ story?
  • Get your website “Google ready” and optimised?
  • Create a clear plan for 2014?

Deep down you know you really should have all of those things 😉 So what are you doing about it? Whether you do it yourself, work with someone else, or work with my team – it doesn’t matter. I just want you to get it done!

It’s easy to think “oh I’ll just leave it till next year” but if you do that you won’t get started till mid January and then it’ll take a little time to get things rolling and before you know it’ll be February or March. You can’t afford to wait that long.

Online business is like a running race and the longer you leave it, the more of a head start your competition gets. And it’s not even that hard to get started! If you’re stuck, give me a buzz at 1300 662 979 and I’ll point you in the right direction.

Ok, with my little rant out of the way, here’s what I spotted this week:
