Podcast Episode 49: 6 Missed Opportunities in 2016 {and How to Make Them Happen in 2017}

Most people at the end of the year focus on all the great things that happened or where they could’ve done better.

I’m going to share a new viewpoint that is quite different than both of those and that’s the missed OPPORTUNITIES from this past year.

But what are opportunities really?

Opportunities are a good chance at advancement or progress.

Sound great right?

They are kind of scary to talk about because it’s showing where you might have dropped the ball or should’ve shifted in your business.

It is great though to look back on the past year with as many perspectives as possible because you always want to improve.

Every time we unpack anything in our business (launches, promotions, 90 day sprints), it’s important to ask ourselves, “ What is out there that we could’ve done very differently and seen great change?”

These are things that I can have with 95% certainty that would equate to major effect on my business.

We either failed to do them or we could’ve done much better.

Are you curious to know what I found were my 6 missed opportunities in 2016?
You might be surprised as they could  be similar to what yours are too!
