This is the time of year to layout the PLAN, to determine the strategy, to write it all and check it twice… to find out if you are naughty or nice… sorry, a bit caught up in the moment, well kinda. See what I want you to know is this: ultimately YOU ARE SANTA and YOU get to DECIDE on the gift that your business is to your life!
You get to decide who you work with, ideal clients or just folks who can pay an invoice. Businesses that you are strongly passionate about their messages or work that ultimately you love doing. However, you want it you are Santa and YOU get to decide
You get to decide if you want to work a few hours a week or a full-time position, if you want to work nights (because you are a bit of a night owl and everything flows better after 9 pm) or you want to work early mornings and enjoy the sunrises. YOU are Santa and YOU get to decide.
You get to decide if you want to work from the couch in your PJ’s or a home office in sweats… if you want to work in an office building or at Starbucks or if you want to work at each of those places different days of the week (or each, every day of the week) YOU are Santa and YOU get to decide.
You get to decide if you want to build websites, submit articles, manage launches or oversee projects, if you want to spend 4 hours a day answering emails or making sales calls… the good news is YOU are Santa and YOU get to decide!
See when it comes to the GIFT of your business, you and only you get to chart the course and make the decisions. Too many times I have conversations with virtual support professionals who simply are NOT enjoying the business they have created, it is not a gift to them but instead a burden they carry. One of the first things they learn with working with us is ultimately it is your decision how you work, who you work with and the work you choose to do. I wanted to give you permission today to make the decision to have the business you truly want to have. To set the terms on your desires and to pursue the clients, hours, work you love and want to do.
So if Santa gets to choose the gifts to bring the boys and girls, then just know for your business YOU ARE SANTA and YOU GET TO DECIDE!
So go… make your decision and enjoy the benefits of this beautiful gift you have given yourself called: Being an Online Business Manager, YOUR WAY on YOUR TERMS!
