As you map out your goals for the year, I hope you use the planning prompts I shared with you last time.
But I also want to warn you of 3 mistakes that can hinder your growth.
We’ll go over the tactics to prevent these mistakes from happening in the mini-class I’ve mentioned to you in my last email. But if for some reason you chose not to join us, at least you’ll know what to look out for.

When will I come back?
How will my business change?
