I make no claims to be a financial expert, and I'm not handing out any investment advice or the like. What I'm sharing today are 7 things that I'm doing to prepare for a tougher economy which seems to be looming ahead.

Some of these are so simple that you may be tempted to skip them...don't. I'm doing everything I can to make sure that my business continues to thrive while weathering any storms that lie ahead, including each and every one of these steps:

  • Recognize the season - For the world, for you, and for your business
  • Check the Basics of your business - Know the state of your List, Traffic, Conversion, and Retention
  • Gather Your Assets - Get an accurate read of what your assets really are
  • Go Premium - Shift to premium offers for premium clients
  • Be Essential - Put yourself in your client's shoes...could you live without you, or would you get cut?
  • See the Opportunity in Adversity - Sounds bad, but it's not. People struggling need help. Provide them the help that you are able to render.
  • Guard Your Mind - Disconnect from the news, the social sewers, and as much negativity as possible. Be conscious of what you're feeding your brain. Worry solves nothing.
