Let’s talk about how to use the Bullet Journaling system as a planning method to keep your business productivity high!
As any business owner knows, on a daily basis you can be hit with a multitude of tasks and information coming in from a variety of sources like your email, customers, employees, and even your own mind.
Add to that launches, promotions, and all that content creation…and you’ve got a recipe for entrepreneurial meltdown.
Want to avoid that meltdown?
So, one of the most important things a business owner can establish for themselves and their business is a system of organization to capture, process and execute on their daily tasks and incoming information. There are a lot of systems out there, some for those who prefer digital methods, and others for those who prefer analog pen and paper. Few systems, however, can bridge that gap, give you the flexibility to capture a variety of information in an organized way, and help you really get those important big picture items for your business done the way the bullet journal method can.

When’s the last time you purchased an online program?
Sometime in the past year, you’ve been faced with the decision to buy, enroll or download some training course online or maybe you really wanted to go to a big event hosted by someone who really inspires you… and it bummed you out a little.
If you ever struggled to make a buying decision for a coach, an online course, a digital product, a real product, and know you’ll likely struggle with it again, you’ll want to listen to today’s episode.
Also - there’s huge value in getting clear about your on behaviors, turning the microscope on yourself in order to also see what your soon to be customers are going through as they decide to work or purchase from you!
Today’s episode will cover two topics -
Make sure to read the full show notes over at annesamoilov.com/132 and grab the resources I’ve provided you for you over there!
What’s your communication strategy when you launch?
What do you communicate? Where do you communicate it? Where do you tell people about your launch? How often do you talk about launch leading up to the launch? Do you use email? Videos? Podcast?
Where you communicate, where you show up...matters.
And if you’re not watching the interaction and response during that time, you need to start doing it. Not only will you identify places you can drop, stop wasting time on, and focus more fully in the places where people are actually listening!
Today’s episode is all about having more conversations that sell and making sure you do the experimentation before you launch — so that your communication happens when, where, and exactly how often it needs to!

In today’s episode we’re talking about mistakes you may be making as a business owner that affect your business and all your product launches. These aren’t quick fix mistakes, but ones you can aim to get better at over time.
Take out your journal right now and make notes on anything that comes up for you personally. There’s no right or wrong way to approach these, only to work on shifting the way you handle launches, do business...and operate in the world.
Checklist vs. Decision Making: There are lots of appropriate places and instances where checklists are valuable and work. And they do get you part of the way there with launches. But a checklist will not tell you why people aren’t buying. A checklist won’t tell you if you’ve done enough customer research or sent enough emails or got the tone right in your sales page or webinar presentation. You need to be able to ask questions, have thoughtful conversations and make decisions.
Individual Tools vs. System: With the ever changing technology in our world, it’s no wonder that we’re always thinking about trying a new tool to. For example, process payments, manage tasks, house our products, deliver our products, promote our products. Truth is - the system of how you’re doing these things is more important than the specific tool. Learning how to pull together a set of tools into a working system is a better approach and why I teach a systems module in Fearless Launching. Grab my systems cheatsheet. Check show notes over at http://www.annesamoilov.com/130 for a link to that cheatsheet!
Changing Everything vs. Keeping What works: Doing a postmortem is one of those things that gets put off and literally put on the back burner as we get ready for our next thing. Plus - a good friend told me this about branding - that’s her area of expertise...that people get bored with their fonts/colors about the time that it’s gelling and makes sense with people! When it’s working - you’re likely going to get bored, but there’s no reason to throw out everything and can result in nothing working!!!
Support - Are you getting help? Processing what’s going to happen in your launch is invaluable. Absolutely no one I know who’s gone above the 7 figure launch or revenue level has done so without hiring help. No one. You have to be willing to get that support. And if you need help with the above items especially, then it might be time to get a coach, hiring a launching manager...
If you’d like to go into more of these topics, I’ve just created a brand new launch workshop for you which really speaks to the foundation you can build for all of your launches...I’m telling you first because I know you’ll want to jump on it fresh - while it’s hot off the presses.
Here’s what we’re going to cover in this workshop:
The one place you’re wasting the most time and that could be the cause of all your launch problems..
Why knowing how to set your launch goals, sets you up for bigger success
My secret shortcut to creating my launch plan - great if you HATE planning
The key phases in your launch and the exact action steps you can take today.
Just head over to http://www.annesamoilov.com/130 and it’ll be linked right there as well as on the sidebar on the blog.
That’s all for today - I hope you heard today’s message with love. I make these mistakes sometimes too - we’re human and we simply need a reminder every once in awhile!
