Why You Should Create a 1-Year Blueprint for Your Business
I’m going to show you how to create a 1-year blueprint. One year really feels like a long time doesn’t it?
There’s just so much hype out there about how you can build your entire business in 24 hours or 48 hours. A year really feels like a long time. It really does. But let me ask you this: How long have you been trying to pull this business together? 1 year, 2 years, 3 years?
Imagine if 1 year ago you had set a blueprint, a 1-year blueprint, that would have gotten you to, let’s say, $10k per month.
We could have said in one year you’ll have 10 products. We could have said you’ll have 2k subscribers. We could have used a client number; you’ll have 100 clients.
Imagine if 1 year ago you’d set a goal for today – to have 2k subscribers, and you had a blueprint to do it. Today you woke up and you had 2k subscribers: quality subscribers, targeted subscribers. That means you’re making money on them. Or, 1 year ago your goal today had been 100 clients. You woke up today you have 100 clients, paying $100 per month. Or your goal 1 year ago for today was 10 products, and you have them today.
How would your life be different? You see, the last year of your life has passed by, much as the next year will.
The truth of the matter is; success is not going to happen overnight. It’s probably not going to happen in 30 days.
Realistically it’s going to take 3 to 6 months to build the next foundation of your business, wherever you’re at. If you’re starting at square zero, it’s probably going to take you 3 to 6 months to build the foundation of your business. For example: 3 or 4 products and a coaching program and a few thousand subscribers.
Or, if you’re at the place where you have a few thousand subscribers, you’re making a few thousand dollars a month, and you have a few products, the next step of your business might be 10 more products, 2 coaching programs, and 10k subscribers for a monthly income of $15k. It’s going to take you probably 3 to 6 months to build that foundation. There’s no way around it.
It’s kind of like if you were learning karate today. If you started out today learning karate, it would probably take you 3 to 6 months to have the foundational materials down. I don’t care how fast you learn, I don’t care how many hours you stand in front of the mirror punching, it’s going to take you 3 to 6 months. It’s kind of like if you try to lose weight. You can lose some quick pounds the first few weeks, but realistically, before you really see a difference, before you’re fitting in some new clothes, before you have to go clothes shopping because your old clothes are falling off, it takes 3 to 6 months.
Let’s say that you start working out so that you can build some muscles. You want some muscles to show through your shirt. You want to look a little buff. You can go to the gym today, and do a 3-hour workout. You probably won’t be able to walk tomorrow. You might not be able to walk for 5 or 6 days.
You can go back to the gym next week. In fact, in 30 days you’ll probably discover that you’re lifting a little more weight.
But when you look in the mirror you probably won’t really notice a big difference yet. It’ll be 3 to 6 months.
It’s just the way it works. Whether you’re breaking bad habits, or building new habits. Or you’re building a business. Or you’re building a house. You don’t build a house in 2 days. A house takes 3 to 6 months. Usually takes a little longer than that.
It’s exactly the same way in your business.
