5 new projects from 2 proposals she wrote in just 6 minutes

August 23, 2012 | Business | Beth Schneider

The Double-Time Two-esday love keeps pouring in. There's still four more weeks to go so come join the fun. I love, love, love that so many of you are getting how a system that takes 15 minutes to explain can be so impactful.

Remember that right now when you register for the Double Your Profits, Double Your Time Off Intensive, you can bring a friend for free. But that's going away on Aug 31.

The intensive is a great place to build and start implementing your systems. Just like Outrageously Effective Systems client, Julia Stege of http://www.magical-marketing.com/ did. She came to us knowing she wanted systems, but I don't think she expected the impact they'd have so quickly. This rock star completely revamped her proposal process and cut the process down from 2 HOURS to 6 MINUTES...and yes she actually timed herself! She hired a new team member to take stuff of her plate and is looking to hire more. She has clients...and I quote, "clamoring to pay her in full - in advance" and she recently closed 5 exciting new projects. The kicker is, she isn't even half way through her program with us!

The key to her success...taking action and making things happen. Which just so happens to be what this week's article is all about.
Enjoy,

Don't Just Stand There, 8 Steps to Make Things Happen

By Beth Schneider, Process Prodigy

Has this ever happened to you?

You spend hours and hours working on a new process. You dot all the "I"s cross all the "T"s and then some how you still ended up doing it the same ole' way.

You go to a fantastic seminar, you are all pumped up and excited, but then somehow all the stuff you learned just sits on your desk.

Or how about this one. You finally read that book that's been sitting on your nightstand, it had great ideas in it and you see how you could do things a little bit differently to make some more cash. But time goes by, the book ends up on the shelf and you never implement any of those great ideas.

It's like taking the time to research, test drive and buy a new car. Then parking that expensive, shinny new car in the garage and driving the old one. Don't leave your shiny new process in the garage to collect dust. Here is a step-by-step system to get you implementing all your hard work.

Step 1: What's in your way? Determine what resistance there might be before you get started. Are you a procrastinator? Do you need a new web guy? Did you just set up a schedule where your best work needs happen when you're taking your kids to school? Set yourself up for success by dealing with barriers and issues before you get started.

Step 2: Commit to Implement It takes 21 days to form a habit. So commit to following your new process or plan for 21 days. Come on, that's only 3 weeks. You can do anything for 3 weeks, right?

Step 3: The Proper Training Give yourself or anyone working with you the proper training they need to in order to follow your process. Everyone (including you) should have all the tools they need and fully understand what needs to be done.

Step 4: Find a Place Decide where you are going to keep your new process or plan. Do you have a book that you can keep next to you? I am a visual person so I physically tape a new process to the wall in front of me so I always see it. I had one client that saved her new process as her screen saver.

Step 5: Follow the Bouncing Boxes Actually follow your plan or process. How do you know if it's working if you don't actually do it? Remember you committed to implement.

Step 6: Keep Track of What's Working - And What's Not As you go along, make notes and keep records of things that you could streamline, delegate out or are not running as smoothly as you would like. You'll use these notes later.

Step 7: Version 2 At the end of 21 days, go through those notes you've been making. Put your consultant's hat on and see if there is anything that will make your process even better. Incorporate those changes into your process and voila, version 2.

Step 8: Count down to Launch Pick a date when version 2 goes into action. On that date, start the implementation process over again and keep that ball rolling.

Now get out those new processes and start implementing.
