President’s Corner – Set a Goal and Work Your Plan
We just ended the first half of the year and I guess the question is are you on track to make your goal for the year? Most of us miss it a little or a lot and now we have five months to correct our plan and make it work. Have you heard the saying “it is a cinch by the inch and hard by the yard”? Or “how do you eat an elephant?” One little bite at a time!
These are cliché sayings but they have a lot of truth to them. You need to first have a plan that you can believe and achieve and then work the plan every day – not just when you think of it. Become obsessed with it and guess what will happen? You will make your goal.
You also need to write it down on a piece of paper to make it real. It is really that simple, most people spend more time planning their vacations than they do their business.
There is the 80/20 rule of life. Twenty percent of the people do what needs to be done to be successful and 80% watch the others get it done and then complain about their lack of success. Which number do you identify with? The economy is still bad, but if you work the plan, it can get better – much better.
On another subject, we are about to release a new product called Kool Shade Solar Screens. I talked to you about this in the past months and we have been field testing these products for a few months and it has been a great success.
Our fist few weeks we did $500 in sales. The next full month we did $8,000 in sales and for the month of July we did $10,000 in sales and it is growing each day. We have a winner here and will be sharing it with you in a few days. We will have sample product to show your customers, a demo kit to prove it works, sales brochures and a suggested retail price. This is a no brainer. You will be very excited about this product and you can add it to your sales plan.
See you next month and be sure to work your plan.
