2014 has arrived!
Your December Midweek Spark’s theme was 2014 – Get Ready, Here it comes. The objective was to give you ideas and planning tools so that you are ready for an awesome 2014.
I was delayed in sending out Step 3 due to having all my websites hacked, blacklisted and suspended! (If you want to avoid this happening to you, please check out my blog post: Techie Tip: How To Protect Your Websites From Being Hacked.)
To refresh your memory, in the December Midweek Sparks, I provided the following steps to assist you.
- Step 1: Taking Stock of 2013– including a 6 page workbook – 2014 – Get Ready, Here it Comes
- Step 2: 2014 – Same Old thing or Something Special? – including the Ignite Your Market Action Planning Tool and an audio case study.
