Accomplishments in 2010

December 30, 2010 at 12:25 pm Leave a comment

Seth Godin has challenged us to publish a list of our accomplishments in 2010.  I answered in Triiibes, a closed, online community that Seth started.  It was pretty easy to do it there because it’s a closed community and I’m active enough in it, that they’ve been along for the ride.  I want to share it here with you because it is a great exercise.

I started the list after reading Seth’s bakers dozen of accomplishments so I was feeling inadequate and thinking more about what I hadn’t done.  Then I started writing; and I wowed myself.  I did do quite a few things – some of them pretty cool.  I was well out of my comfort zone for some of them too.  Here’s to more of that!

  • Went to NYC to meet Seth Godin and a neat group of people I met online in Triiibes
  • opened a second office for my bookkeeping business
  • started and sold a cab company
  • took my kids on a camping, family travel adventure
  • hired 2 full time staff
  • gathered a team to organize TEDxNovaScotia and got this license
  • read 48 books and blogged about most of them
  • set up and integrated social media for the Business Owners Success Club to join ‘the discussion’
  • helped start and participated in an international, online book club

Add yours here or link to your list in the comments.  Give yourself the experience of actively writing it down.  It makes a big difference.

The Three Success Factors

I have worked closely with 100’s of business owners and I have seen too many struggle. I have seen what works and what doesn't.

It takes 3 things to succeed:
1. Hard work - and I know you do that already.
2. Knowledge - domain knowledge: you've got that and continue to learn; and business knowledge: this is where everyone focuses and it's easy to find
3. Mindset - This is the killer app. This is what makes or breaks small business owners.

We work on Mindset here at the Business Owners Success Club: how you think about yourself and your business.

When you focus on a business that gives you what you need to live a Good Life and gives others what they need to solve a problem, everything else falls into place and you have a successful business.

Using that as a framework we work on one aspect of business every month. February is "Your Place in Your Community" month.

In March we will open the doors to our online community. Stay Tuned.
