Ramp Up Your Holiday Sales - Week 1

Yesterday was the start of Ramp Up Your Holiday Sales Intensive by Flourish and Thrive Academy. While it was the official start, I have actually been working on my sales for a couple of weeks now.

The big thing I am hearing so far in this course is: Positive Thinking, Accountability, and Goals.

These seem very trivial when you first look at them. But I am a firm believer in this quote by H.M. Tomlinson
"The World is what we think it is. If we can change our thoughts, we can change the world."

While I do believe in what the quote is saying, I have found it difficult to follow through with my thinking. And that is why the accountability part of this was so attractive to me. 

So for me, taking this intensive seems like a no brainier. I am hoping that not only will it help with my sales, but that it will also help me stay on track to create a more positive outlook in my life.

So far we have not recieved any assignements, but those who signed up early did get a goal setting worksheet. In my case, I filled out my finiacial goals for the 3rd and 4th quarters of 2013; to increase my sales by 25% over last year. So I recorded my weekly sales totals from last year. I also started working on a plan to do more "revenue generating" activities each week.

I am pleased to say, even if I am only 1 week in for the start of my goal time, that I have already met my weekly goal! Maybe I will try to update my blog weekly with how my goals are going. Would you all like to see that?
