Scaling UP! H2O

175 The First One of 2021

Even though most of us were ready for 2020 to be over and never speak its name again, it is essential to take the time to reflect on the past year and what we learned. This is something that I love doing every year no matter what. There were some ScalingUpH2O, Scaling Up Podcast, JC21, Water Treaters, Water Treatment Industry, Start With Why Book, The Neocortex, Sales, Sales Training, The Golden Circle, Lagging Metrix, Leading Metrics, Referrals, Closing Ratio, Proposals, CRM,, PipeDrive, HubSpot, Zoho, LSI, RSI, PSIvaluable lessons and many challenges we overcame that we should all be proud of. Once we have taken the time to process the progress we made in 2020, we can turn our attention to the year ahead. 

In today’s episode, I discuss some tips on productivity, goal setting, and being intentional with your time as we move into the new year. When we take time to be intentional instead of just reacting to the year, it can make all the difference in our success.

Please enjoy today’s episode and happy New Year!
