3. How to Let Go of Your Fears
a. Make note of these tips in this section. Think about a situation where you were fearful – how did you
overcome the fear? Or did you? Could you have applied any of these tips to help you? The next time fear creeps in, apply just 1-‐2 of these tips and you will see how the fear dissipates.
4. The Utter Importance of Staying Consistent
a. For the next task you have, apply the tips in this section. Write out your goal for the task, what is the criteria
for marking the goal as ‘achieved’, state out the goal positively, answer the ‘why’ for your goal, and associate a positive belief statement with your goal. You will be amazed at how these 5 things will help you stay consistent in your efforts.
5. How to Develop & Execute Focused Marketing Strategies

forward as fast as planned go back and re-‐evaluate your tactics and action steps.
6. How to Get in the Game with Social Media
a. Setup accounts at Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. Outline a strategy to be a contributing member of the
social network you create. Make friends, talk to others with like interests. Comment on other’s updates, communications, and videos. Establish yourself as someone that adds value to the community. And do not promote your business with any sort of regularity – 1 out of 10 posts you make could pertain to your business – otherwise you should be adding value!
7. Why You Need to Invest in Your Personal Growth and Education
a. Identify 5 areas that you need to grow personally or professionally. Then think about who you know that
