I’m married to an Eagle Scout. I often joke that “be prepared” was part of our wedding vows. That advice comes in handy, though, when it comes to my business.
I spend a little time each month getting prepared. I make sure I have plenty of host kits for the parties I want to schedule. This way I’m not scrambling once someone schedules a party. I make sure I have door prizes ready for all of my upcoming parties. This allows me to order anything that I’m in danger of running out of.
I spend a little time each week making sure I’m familiar with my schedule. This allows me to make sure I don’t have conflicts. It also allows me to be prepared for any changes that might come up.
I spend a little time each day making sure I have catalogs, order forms, and additional information with me before I leave the house. That way I’m ready if I encounter someone who wants to do business with me.
Being prepared helps me to make the most of my time, which helps me to make the most of my business.
