The approach of the New Year is often viewed as a traditional time to do this.

As part of this self-assessment, some key questions you may decide to ask yourself include:

1. Am I really clear on the goals that I want to accomplish?

2. Are the goals that I set for myself some time ago still relevant to where I am today, or do they need to be reconsidered and updated?

3. Am I making the kind of progress I expected to make when I first set these goals for myself?

4. Do I have all the skills that I need to accomplish my goals?

5. Do I have all the support that I need to accomplish my goals?

For those of us who are recovering do it yourselfers, it is sometimes difficult to face the fact that we not only don’t know everything we need to know, we sometimes don’t even know what it is we do need to know.

So here are some other questions for you to think about, especially when it comes to publicizing your services and your business in the world:

When it comes to promoting yourself and your business, do you have all the skills you need to show up, speak up, and stand out; so that you can boost your business and make the kind of difference in the world that you would like to make?

Do you have proven skills for creating the kind of messages that will attract your ideal clients and customers so that they are eager to do business with you?

Do you have confidence and ease in sharing your message in any speaking situation – on the phone, on the platform, online, networking, making sales and other presentations, etc.?

If you answered no to any of those questions, ask yourself this final and very important question:

Are you ready to upgrade your skills so that, in the coming year, you can answer any of these questions with the unqualified yes of communication confidence?

If you think that may be you, then in honor of the holiday season and the up-coming the New Year, if you are serious about upgrading your communication skills (and not simply a tire kicker with an hour to spare), you are welcome to check out my video on how I work with people.

Then, if it makes sense to you to invest in your own personal growth, you are welcome to schedule a complimentary one hour strategy session with me.
