12 Days of Marketing – Goal Setting



A goal is defined as “the object of a person’s ambition or effort; an aim or desired result”. This definition provides us with both an action (ambition/effort), as well as a passive action (aim). What are you doing to take your goals from aims and desires into the realm of action and effort? Listen in with Coach Joe as he discusses with your host Matt Halloran different ways to make your goal setting effective, and stick to it.

12 Days of Marketing – Evaluate and Benchmark



Benchmarks are a cornerstone to your business success. They give you an opportunity to reflect, evaluate, and challenge yourself in the upcoming year to meet goals. However, benchmarks can be another one of those tasks that simply gets forget. As people say, when something works well, we tend to stop doing it simply because we don’t acknowledge or allocate for it.

Coach Joe has a three part process to help you wrap up 2018 and set yourself on a better path for 2019. Get your benchmarks set, and roll on past them with your most successful year yet!


12 Days of Marketing – Plan To Do The Plan



We all have “plans” but what makes plans a reality? Actually DOING them. So when it comes to building your business plan what’s stopping you? For many of us it’s that we simply right it down as something to get done, without taking the necessary steps to make it happen. Whether that’s blocking our calendar time, arranging a coaching session to prepare for the plan, or simply getting your team together to discuss the business you’re building.

Listen in as Coach Joe explains the value in planning your plan, and get ready to rock in 2019!
