The 12 Month #Nothing to Lose Challenge- Week 2 (Read Time: 2 min.)

NTL 8Here’s the Week 2 Challenge (short, sweet, and super critical work to do this week):

As an entrepreneur, what you’re getting compensated in your business is being driven by your behavior.  Spend some time this week looking at your #s (profit and loss, your bank account, sales for the last 12 months, etc.).  Are you making the kind of money you want to be making?  If not, what behaviors have been driving these less-than-desirable results?

What’s it going to take from you (in terms of behavior) THIS week in order to change what you’re being compensated in the long run?

What are the next 3 actions you’re going to take to change your compensation equation?

Please leave a comment and let me know what your next 3 actions are and follow up by posting when you’ve completed those 3 actions.

Have a great week!

#NothingtoLose Challenge: Week 1- Step Up to the Plate (Read Time: 4 min.)

NTL 2In the month of January, we are going to lift as we climb.  In other words, we have 3 objectives in January:

  1. Ingrain the #NothingtoLose approach into our lives (life and business- not separate, intertwined).
  2. Create a daily routine that reflects our commitment to MASSIVE Daily Action (MDAs).
  3. Take MASSIVE Daily Action (no excuses now so there won’t be regrets later).

During this week, here’s the challenge:

  1. If you haven’t read Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain, read it.  If you have read the book, do 2 things: 1) Re-read Chapters 1-8, 2) If you didn’t write a review of the book on Amazon, do so by the end of the week (Remember: Life is about what we give, not what we get).
  2. Create space in your office/home/bedroom for a #NothingtoLose tracking board.  I’ve posted a pic of mine on Instagram (http://www.instagram.com/KassandraBibas).  This is going to be your hub for your goals, objectives, and results.  It needs to be located in a place where you can see it daily and use it as a brainstorming/results review hub.  See this board as your visual for reporting, on a weekly basis, to your shareholders and stakeholders (at this moment, that could easily be YOU.  But, remember, YOU are the CEO of your life and the essence of your brand.  Report to yourself as you would a board of directors).  If you had to stand before a board at the end of each week, what would you want to show them?  What would they be expecting to see?  How easily could you use this board to demonstrate your accomplishments and pitch your ideas?  That’s how your board should look.  The first thing I want you to put up on your board (preferably smack dab in the middle of the board- see my board pic on Instagram for an example) are the 10 steps to being successful that @RyanBlair writes about on page 30.  You’ve got the book so the 10 steps are there 🙂
  3. Perform a 2014 Goal audit.  There’s only one question you need to answer if you’re going to experience MASSIVE success in 2015: What’s it going to take?  However, you can’t answer that question fully unless you know how you did and where you went wrong in 2014.  Spend some time this week (buy a journal just for #NothingtoLose or use Evernote) reviewing your 2014 year in business.  If your business is brand new, look at your life goals and review 2014.  Spend 5 minutes identifying your top 3 successes for last year.  No more than 5 minutes.  Anyone who’s a frequent reader of my blog knows one thing about me: I firmly believe that failure is a much greater teacher than success.  We want success but getting AND keeping it requires that we get SUPER good at learning from failure.  Pat yourself on the back for 5 minutes and let’s move to the more important thing: evaluating your top 3 failures from 2014.  Use @RyanBlair’s post mortem approach (on pages 35 and 36 of the book-hardcover) to evaluate your top 3 failures.
  4. Use the comments section to create accountability & connect with others. Comment below and identify what 3 steps you’ll take by the end of this week (Sunday, January 11th by midnight in your time zone) to ensure that you take a #NothingtoLose approach in your business and do not repeat the failures of 2014.  Follow up your comment as soon as you’ve completed all three steps.  I’ll be doing the same.

There it is.  And, if you need some extra motivation, listen to the weekly #NothingtoLoseChallenge SoundCloud audio I’ve created for Week 1.
