Welcome to 2016!

It’s time to get back to work after (what was hopefully) a nice couple weeks full of time off with family, a little bit of work, recharging, and reflection.

Before we get too far into 2016 – it would be wise to do the following:

Capture your 2015 Business Story. I recommend you do the following:

1. Open up your iPhone and click on ‘Voice Memos’ or find another easy way to record some audio.

2. Think through your year and the 2015 story of your business:

  • What worked?
  • What didn’t work?
  • Improvements and changes you implemented
  • What you didn’t accomplish that you wanted to
  • Employee/personnel changes
  • Revenue and profit numbers
  • You can toss in some personal notes as well:
    • How you did personally in 2015 (fitness/financials/faith/family/etc.)

3. Record a 3-5 minute audio. Doesn’t have to be polished – just talk – capture your thoughts.


You work your butt off. This exercise is simply meant to slow you down for a few minutes and help you gain some perspective on what you accomplished in 2015 and help you plan and set goals for 2016.

You’ll also love listening back to this recording 12 months from now.

If you do this, please send me over your audio recording. Would love to hear it.

Looking forward to helping you and your remodeling business in this New Year. Talk again soon!
