How to Create a Yearly Overview for 2020
Creating a simple overview for your business will help you start the new year and decade brilliantly. If you want to look back this time next year and be really proud of all you’ve achieved, plan it now.
Start with your vision for your business, it acts as a compass for what you want to achieve in the future. If you haven’t done a vision, read this article to help you figure yours out.
Based on your vision, decide what you need to achieve during the next year to accomplish it. Write them down so you know what you are working towards.
These are your yearly goals which will be too big and scary to tackle in one go. This is where creating a simple overview plan of your year is priceless. You plot out the year ahead, breaking down your goals into smaller achievable ones across the year.
Also, include details of anything that affects your business in your overview:
- Events you’re attending for your business
- Events you’re planning to deliver yourself e.g. workshops or retreats
- Key dates which are relevant to your favourite clients, annual holidays and celebrations – these can provide great ideas for your marketing
- Personal holidays, you’ll need to accommodate these in your plans, especially if you work alone
Having an overview of your year will help you maximise any opportunities to build your business and make sure you’re organised for them.
It doesn’t have to be anything complicated, just go old school with a piece of paper and divide it into 12 boxes. Alternatively use a yearly planner (google ‘printable year planner 2020’), or use a spreadsheet – whatever works for you. You just want a way of plotting out your year and capturing an overview of what you are working towards.
You’ll end up with something like this:
- Run 2 x in-person workshops each for 10 people
- Launch podcast and release season 1 (10 episodes)
- Increase number of 1:1 client appointments to 7 per week
- Create a gift range for Christmas
This exercise will help you see if there are any points in the year you’ll need extra help and if your goals are realistic.
Once you have your overview for the year ahead, work out what marketing you need to do to make it happen.
