Don't be afraid to show a little leg in business

WOW. Did you catch the AMAs last night? The performances were amazing and the fashion was beyond.

Fergie doing the most at the AMAs. Get it, girl.

I love that leg is in. Everyone from Fergie to Kendall and Kylie to Jordin Sparks was rocking the high split and showing off their oh so fabulous legs. So gorg.

So, what does this mean for us as entrepreneurs? Obvi, we need to be wearing dresses with high splits. Right?

Just kidding. We also need to make a HUGE effort to finish this year with a bang. As we approach Cyber Monday and the end of November, we have to kick it into high gear in order to meet those revenue goals we set wayyyy back in January.

According to Forbes, 20% of sales for retailers occur during the last two months of the year. And if you're in the service industry, this is also a time period when you can see a huge increase in your sales. And who doesn't want a nice, healthy bank account as we head into 2015?

 

If you want to make sure you finish 2014 strong, here are three BOLD steps you can take to make sure you accomplish your goals.

  1. Make a list of three of your dream clients and contact them. Yes, do it NOW.
  2. Reach out to your three dream publications where you'd like to be featured and pitch a guest blog post to them. Want to be in Marie Claire or Cosmo? Now's your time to shine, gorgeous!
  3. Have a list of people that are interested in your services or products and you haven't closed the deal? Contact 3 of your prospects now and ASK for the sale.

I'm so excited to see you end this year with a bang. Which of the three steps will you do right now? Leave a comment below so I can cheer you on.
