Today’s prompt is important because as you’re going along in your business, you’ll be faced with lots of choices--lots of people who want to work with you, lots of courses to help you be a better business owner, tons of tools to choose from, and you’ll have to choose who you say yes and no to.
Starting today - I want to encourage you to say no to anything that doesn’t give you an immediate, “OMG I’d do that for free” feeling.
Say no to demands on your time that will push your launch further in the future. Say no to people who want you to support them during your launch.
Say no to playdates for your daughter, when you’ve got two webinars planned. Say no to conversations about other people’s businesses during your launch.
Say no and protect your launch.
Learning to say no - helps you set healthy boundaries with everyone in your world and also your soon to be customers and clients.

Today, we're talking about follow up and why it's so important whether you're doing a traditional live launch or not.
There are a few types of follow up you might have to complete today.
First, there’s the type of follow up we all need to do. Emails and voicemails and inquiries that need to be replied to... Today, make a list of some follow up you can complete, even if it has nothing to do with your launch. I like to set one day a week to make sure I’ve followed up with anyone who’s waiting for me to follow up!
If you don’t have time to follow up, still respond to someone and give them a real time you will follow up with them.
Second, when you are in launch mode, follow up is critical. It can be the difference between a sale and no sale.
Make time several times a week to respond to every email, social media message, comment and voicemail you receive.
Think of each one of those people as someone who may want to work with you, buy your product, and simply needs your help.
Leave no comment unanswered--on your blog, on videos, scour your Facebook groups. Do everything you can to close loops like this during a launch.
No matter what day of the week it is, sit down right now and set a few dates to help you start your launch map.
Why? Because even just a few dates will give you that tiny bit of structure to start thinking about your launch, what needs to happen by each date and give you a little nudge to get to work.

Who are the people you know have your back, support you, call you on your “stuff" and remind you when you’ve gone off track?
Think about people who’ve been friends, clients, maybe family members, besties, classmates...anyone who’s taken a role to remind you to keep going.
Who will hold you up when you’re not sure you can do it? Here's what to know about getting the right type of support--even the stuff you don't want to hear.
Who's on your launch team - who can be honest, tell you when they don't get it, and don't turn into "yes" people?

What's Your Best Channel? (plus a rant)
When you’re first starting out planning a launch, even starting your business, you might find yourself wanting to be everywhere all the time.
Now’s the time to look at the various places you show up online and offline...and where you’re getting the most feedback or having the most conversations.
This can be as simple as noting that you have a growing audience on Facebook but not on Instagram or vice versa. You might notice that people mostly email you personally. Maybe you have in-person clients that you signed via speaking at local events.
Where do you get the most interaction with people?
Choose the top 3. Focus on those places for sharing and publishing content. Focus on networking and getting to know people in those spaces.

"Goals" is a big word, but today, I want you to think about your first launch (for a free or paid offer) this year. Grab your notebook, because you’ll need space for this!
What are your biggest goals for the launch? Is it revenue? How much? Is it a number of new clients or customers? Is it a certain number of subscribers?
Your goals might even be about why you want to launch...and what it would mean to your life. Goals for me are a mix of specifics, of the why and the vision.
Specific goals of the launch:
Why it’s so important for you to reach those goals:
What’s the bigger vision behind this launch and how it aligns with your business?
The point with setting goals is simple - you’re setting a target for yourself.
Okay, so what's the problem and your solution?
Once you start to understand who your ideal customer is, their dreams, their passions, their goals in life...you'll also start to see how they struggle. That's why today is all about defining that "problem" and then offering a "solution"!

Today we're talking about your person. You know, the one person you are creating your products, your services, and you are desperately trying to find!
You don't have to be creepy like me or direct...sometimes it takes a bit of listening, understanding, and curiosity to find out who needs your work the most!

Even if you’re launching, you may decide that you’re going to focus on a piece of that bigger project, maybe list building, maybe something you’re going to do to get you to your launch.
My suggestion is to choose the product or the service or the THING you want to launch, but be open to that changing throughout the challenge.
Tomorrow you’ll discover new things about what your audience is actually struggling with (as opposed to what you think they are struggling with).
This might be your toughest prompt of the challenge if you think you can multitask or have trouble sticking to one project at a time. Do it. Please. Resist the urge to take on multiple projects this month.
You're invited to follow along as I share daily prompts and advice to help you make progress on your next launch or whatever project you're working on or trying to grow in your business.
I'm posting the first 5 days of prompts so they are available right now.
