Happy New Year: Business Planning for a Small Business

Posted In: ,


Several of you have emailed asking about my plans for 2008 and when I’ll be launching more coaching programs. 

First, let me say “thank you”.  You’re very question shows the value you receive from me and this newsletter.   

I’m very clear on what I’m doing and why, and I’m sharing much of this with you from the start of the year so you know what’s coming.  What I’m sharing will tie up some loose ends, update you on some new initiatives and hopefully excite you.  If it doesn’t, please let me know what will and I’ll see what I can do.  🙂

1. The Automatic Income! Membership Forum

The group membership site will be of use to EVERY small business on the planet no matter what you do and it’s going to be fantastic. This is now in process and will launch in March. This is my most far-reaching project of the year. Stay tuned!

2. Automatic Online Business Builder Mentoring Program

Last year I had so many business owners emailing me asking me if I could coach them how to bring their online business to life as I have done with my own. I really wanted to help you but I can only take on a limited number of private clients and still get everything done.

I decided to create some group coaching programs whereby I could work with up to 24 people over the next 6 to 12 months on a very intimate level to help you get your business vision fully up and running, because not having enough money to do what you love can be one of the greatest sources of pain imaginable when you know what it is that you want to do. If you’re interested in being the first to learn more about these programs, please click here.

3. Automatic Repurposing – Done For You

I’ve put together two very special programs for those of you who would like your article marketing and press release repurposing done for you.  YES…done FOR you!

More information will be sent out this week.

4. The Automatic Business Owner Hardcopy Book

I’ve been working on this off and on for the past few years and am adding lots of new material.  I’m excited to have this published this year.

5. Coaching and 1-on-1

I am changing the way my coaching works this year and am doing far less 1-on1s than previously.  Last year I coached many people weekly over a period of 3 and 6 months.  This year I’m offering more group programs so if you are interested in private coaching, please email my client relationship manager Gina at Gina@SandraMartini.com to set up a “Get to know you” call with me.

6. Live Workshops

My first live workshop will be held this fall in New England.  It’ll be unlike any before it as it includes not only the "what", but all of the "how to" — there will be a special add-on day for implementation of everything you’ve learned. 

7.  The Mystery Project

I have a surprise internet project in the works that will blow you away. . .more to come later this month.  🙂 

So that’s my year… or the bits I can share for now! There is a lot more, but my focus is here first. And remember, focus is what gets results! 

I would love to be a part of your vision in 2008, so whether that’s simply keeping you on track with my weekly Success Strategies ezine or connecting with you via one of my coaching programs, I look forward to any or all of them that you choose!

Here’s to a FABULOUS year ahead!
