Let’s talk about how to plan your ultimate business success!
If you want your business to grow month after month this year… planning how you’re going to do it is key.
If planning feels like an overwhelming task to you… and you want an exciting and simple way of planning, this is for you.
In the past, I often set goals but didn’t plan how to achieve them, because I didn’t have a process for planning.
So, I created a method that I personally love using and now I want to share it with you.
It’s called ‘The Ultimate Business Success Planner’.
It goes beyond goal-setting and taps into who you want to be which is a powerful way to be internally motivated to achieve your goals.
In this video, I walk through the 5 ways that I make ‘Ultimate Business Success Planner’ work for me with some examples to inspire you.
It’s my signature 5-Step Framework to guide you through effectively mapping out your business dreams, priorities, goals, and actions.
You can use this to help you plan an epic year. You can use this at the start of a year, and you can use it any time – you don’t have to wait for a new year.

A lot of us set goals. But so many times it ends there.
Just dreaming or setting goals without planning often means you end up disappointed.
Creating a clear plan can evoke a sense of excitement & inspiration.
The important part of planning is making sure it’s enjoyable, fun, and taps into your uniqueness.
The challenge if you DON’T have a clear plan to follow is…
1. You feel behind the 8 ball
You feel like you’re chasing after your tail, you feel lost, you’re not sure what you should be doing each day.
You keep repeating the same unhelpful patterns you had last year. Habits don’t change without intention and effort.
I understand we also need to leave room for spontaneity and flow – that’s important and we don’t want a rigid plan that makes us feel restricted.
A plan that you create when you’re in a good state and when you have time and space to think clearly means you tap into higher wisdom and your highest self and you can make choices intentionally.
2. You live in reaction mode rather than creation mode
3. You waste time
Our dream year doesn’t just happen by default. If we don’t plan our year by design – the likelihood it’s going to happen go waaaaay down.
The opportunity if you DO have a clear plan to follow is…
1. You have a clear pathway to follow
Crafting a clear plan serves as a roadmap for success & guides your actions.
2. You feel in control and know what you’re doing
To navigate the year successfully, it helps to get super clear on what you want & make a well-defined plan to achieve it.
3. You create momentum
Once you have momentum, you become unstoppable. You feel inspired, energised
Here are the 5 ways I do it…
Reflective questions are a helpful way to decide what you want to leave behind, & what you want to bring into your new season.
This allows you to be intentional in shaping your goals & actions for the coming year.
This paves the way for a purposeful & transformative journey of personal growth & fulfilment throughout the year.
Each month, I rate 8 pillars in my business a green, yellow or red.
My clients also do this in my Inner Circle Community as a way to keep track of progress in our business.
This traffic-light system helps you to visually see at a glance what areas to focus on next.
It’s important to consider the different areas of your business and brainstorm where there are leakages and what action steps could help plug those gaps.
Businesses almost always have gaps, especially when you’re growing. There’s always lots to create and improve on.
But it’s important to take a strategic approach and prioritise which gaps are most important to plug in what order.
Rather than adding more to our to-do list, often a more strategic approach is required to stop to plug the holes where time/money/leads/energy is being wasted.
This is a GREAT use of our time.
I create intentions that go beyond a checklist of tasks & want you want to do, but also who you want to BE.
It’s also about focusing on things like the impact you want to make in people’s lives, the qualities you want to embody, & the values you want to prioritise.
This encourages a deliberate alignment with what is most important to you.
These intentions serve as a guiding light, powerfully influencing your mindset + choices & bring excitement & fulfilment.
You’re probably familiar with the analogy of placing the big rocks in a jar first.
By prioritising the most important activities in our calendar first, we ensure that the ‘jar’ of our life is filled with the most significant things.
Otherwise, it can be crowded with numerous smaller things that may not be fulfilling, meaningful, or aligned with our overarching vision.
1. The sequence of how I arrange my ‘BIG ROCKS’ in my annual calendar (in order) is:
2. Holidays, Rest Days, & Thinking Days
3. Important social events
4. Client events
5. Marketing events
6. Education & training
