It’s the end of the year and many business owners are already focused on their plans for 2021, forgetting the rest of this year altogether. Just because 2020 is coming to a close, doesn’t mean that you can’t finish the year strong by making new goals and going after them in the month of December.

In today’s episode you will hear:

Stacy breaking down some of the excuses we tell ourselves when it comes to why we can’t uplevel our business at the end of the year, as well as how to set the tone for the month of December.

5 Common excuses we tell ourselves about our businesses in the month of December include:

  • “After Black Friday and Cyber Monday, nobody is buying for the rest of the year.”
  • “If people are still buying, they aren’t spending money on big-ticket items.”
  • “My ads budget was depleted in November and I really can’t afford another huge promotion right now.”
  • “Nobody is buying service based items because of the ‘new year, new me’ mindset.”
  • “I don’t have the time left in the year to attract new leads to make the sale.”
