Kicking Butt in 2015

Welcome to my Mentoring Message! I am here to help small businesses get their company “in control”, grow and expand it, or even just get it profitable!

So since we are still just in the beginning of 2015, what better way begin then with “What are you going to do achieve this year? ”To help you Kick butt this year, you need to be committed to your desire. Let me help you figure out where you are in all this.  As a coach, it is my job to ask questions- so let me ask you these…

  1. If you could achieve just ONE great thing this year – what is it?
  2. Why did you choose that?
  3. How will you feel if you accomplish it?
  4. What is the positive impact to your business?
  5. How will you feel if you DON’T accomplish it?
  6. What can you put in place to ensure your success?
  7. What may get in your way of success?
  8. How will you celebrate when you achieve it?

So, now you have determined the “1 thing” you want this year – where are you right now?  How big of a gap is there?  Once you know that, then you can create your plan. Once you have the plan, you can set the goals. With goals in place, then come the strategies. Finally with your strategies in place, you can begin to EXECUTE.

Ah…. EXECUTION – often where a lot of us (yes even me) fall down. That is why there so many “forgotten” resolutions. Yes, here we are in February and by now 80% of us have already given up. Why? Well, it boils down to the reason as to why we set these things in the first place. If you want to kick butt in 2015, then you need to really know the “why” of this goal.  Why is it so important, and how committed are you to getting there?

Attaining something you don’t currently have means you must DO something differently, which means you need to BE different. To BE different, you need to change something. Change is not easy. So, looking at your “1 big thing”, what needs to change?  Next month we’ll talk about making changes…

I look forward to learning about “your 1 thing” below, and all that goes along with it.  It’s my mission to profitable impact 13,800 or more small business owners by December 31st, 2017. I am ready to help you.

Lee is a business transformation specialist. 10 years ago, Lee Munch said bye-bye to the corporate world and left her global senior management position at Citigroup for the uncharted territory of business owner. Although she enjoyed what she did, and successfully grew the bottom line of the product she oversaw every year– something was missing. That something was purpose. Lee wanted to do something that really mattered. Leaving Citi, although quite scary, gave Lee the opportunity do something more- to be able to make a real difference in real people’s lives. Along came ActionCoach, a global business coaching franchise. Not a day since has Lee ever thought of doing anything else. Except for something bigger! May of 2013, Lee opted out of the franchise to go out on her own.  Monarch 13 was born, and so was Lee’s proprietary, results-based system: the 5 stages of business metamorphosis, and her tag line- “from chaos to control so you can have the freedom you deserve”.  As a results, Lee has had the privilege of Sharing the stage with T. Harv Eker CEO of Peak Potentials and author of “the secrets of the millionaire mind, a guest appearance on “Oprah and friends”, working with Gail Blanke, monthly contributor to Real Simple magazine, and bing noted as “One to Watch” by the Long Island Business News. Lee’s client’s results have been staggering. Focusing on helping small business owners get out of their own way, they stop running their businesses reactively, and start taking control. A couple success stories include: an architect firm  which with Lee’s guidance, strategic execution, and close monitoring of the company’s profit drivers, increased their profit margin more than 200% in less than a year - including the owner now taking a steady paycheck, and paying for Lee’s retainer. Plus – he was now able to get home in time for family dinner.  Another example is a struggling florist looking at losing everything. By combining two stores down to one, and implementing effective marketing strategies, and overall structure into the shop, it is now flourishing. It is Lee’s passion to help the small business owner grow their business in a consistent, strategic manner. Why that market?  Lee says “I choose that segment because generally, the owner is so busy doing the business of the business, they can’t even think of anything else – they’re tired, overwhelmed and may not know what to do to change it. They feel squeezed on all sides. They need the most help, and most often are the most overlooked.” Lee’s mission is to positively impact 13,800 or more area small businesses by December 31st, 2017, and everyday works toward its fulfillment.
