17: Time to Plan - Fierce and Strong Challenge

Today's episode is all about getting your PLAN on. Your Wellness Wednesday includes not only your health but your life and business plans. I offer a simple 3-Step process to get your plans in motion.

Step 1: Define your goals. Your goals include Family, Financial, Physical, Educational, Spiritual And in defining your goals, I have lots of questions I ask – here are 3 of them to help you drill down - Where are you now vs. the desired outcome?

How will you feel when you have it?

How will you know when you have it?

Step 2: Know your numbers. You have to know how much it’s going to take to get to your goal. Most people in general earn only what it takes to pay for their basic needs. It’s also why people often feel they are living from paycheck to paycheck. I have a formula that helps you to incorporate all those things that we typically overlook or ignore. Here’s a quick overview: 

Take your personal overhead, your business overhead, your fun (don’t skip this or you won’t have any fun), your taxes and your savings – Add all those up and that is what you MUST earn each month. Use this formula to know what you REALLY need to earn to achieve your personal, business, family, and financial goals this year! I find that empowering. Maybe that’s because I’m a sales person at my core and I get excited when I know what I need to accomplish. Which leads me to step 3.

Step 3: Your money making schedule. This is my challenge to you.  LOVE having a schedule. Your freedom is in your schedule! Don’t be hating on my right now. I know the truth hurts, but I say it with much love! Break away from the crowd that lives month-to-month and join the ranks of those who control their time; for controlling your time means controlling your income. How much time do you actually have to build your life and business?

To determine the number of hours you actually have available for building  the things that matter in your life, calculate the number of daily hours you spend:

Per Day:

Hours spent sleeping: _____

Hours spent with family & friends: _____

Hours spent on fitness, grooming, and other personal time: _____

Hours spent driving: ____

Total hours: ____

24 Hours minus TOTAL _____ hours committed to personal time = hours available to use in your powerful, moneymaking schedule. This will keep your schedule realistic.

About the Podcast

The eXperiment Podcast
Real Talk with Laura Doughty
Hey Y'all!! The eXperiment podcast is just that – an experiment. My whole life I’ve felt like people try to put you in a box. I’m sooooo an outside the box person, who oddly relishes her rituals in life. But, my previous podcast was more about stories of living excellence in your daily life. A bit too woo woo for even me, if I’m honest. This eXperiment podcast is about life and business. Yes, it will cover REAL ESTATE because real estate affects all of our lives each and every day. We have to have shelter. It will also cover WELLNESS because if you don’t have your health, it don’t matter where you live. And it will cover ENTREPRENEURSHIP – because we truly are the backbone of this country. It takes so much courage and aversion to risk to step out and create a platform that doesn’t currently exist – hope and pray that someone will believe in you and invest in what you’re doing.

This culture is thankfully coming out of it’s fog that it’s been living in for too long. We chased the Kardashian life – hmmm, that’s interesting, this is their last season. Don’t think that’s coincidental. Bottom line, it’s about sharing the truth of the journey that it takes to get up every day and support yourself as an entrepreneur. What I know that I know is ALL of us have a dream and a vision for our life and sometimes you just need to hear from someone that you don’t know that you have permission to step out of the box that society has created that isn’t real and doesn’t work. So, the journey, the wins and the falling downs WILL be exposed on this podcast. By me and by the people who honor me with their time and allow me to interview them. www.theexperimentpodcast.com Can't wait to get to know you!! Laura www.lauradoughty.com
