Enthusiastic little busy bee that I am, I was surprised to find out from a visit to the Ed2010 national website that the great city of Atlanta did not have a chapter. So I took it upon myself to create one! Presenting yours truly - the chapter President for Ed2010 in Atlanta. And today was the first meeting of the group, held at the new Library coffee company in Brookhaven. With Facebook page up, I prayed for more members to sign on and hoped at least 5 would show up for the meeting. Guess What?! 15 people showed up, and I was over the moon! It was a great inaugural meeting and I cant wait for the next one. so if you are an editor or aspiring editor, come check out https://www.facebook.com/Ed2010Atlanta
When working on your business plan for the year. again something I learned at one of my group meetings ...
What bad habits do your clients practice that you want to do away with?
What are your own habits that you need to do away with?
What is the most profitable product or service you have invested in?
What is the role of social media in your work?
What are you doing to increase leads through your website?
What networking groups are you a part of?
Who is the one person that has made a big difference in your professional life and how?
What is one important thing you are doing to attract new clients?
What are the top 3 new services you can offer clients?
What are the services that you can stop offering clients?
What new technologies are you using and why?
What are you doing to invest in yourself?
Some of those questions had me thinking...
I attended a group meeting recently where the speaker talked about how we could build a plan for success in just 3 days. Of course, that got my attention. The steps were simple - define an objective, establish a timeline and devise a strategy. Look at what steps can be taken immediately, and what can be done in a few days. Put realistic deadlines against each step towards your goal and enlist the help of a mentor or an accountability partner that will keep you going after your big plans. I've already begun, maybe you'd like to join me?
