The date is drawing closer...
Jan 1 is just a few weeks away. I know what you're thinking. "Yup, Scott. New Year's Day is only 3 weeks away. So what?" Well it's a big deal here.
While you are correct, it is New Year's Day; which by itself is a reason celebrate. In our household it has some additional significance. It is the birthday of Unlimited Pie Consulting LLC. The first day it is a legal entity, officially recognized by the State of Wisconsin and the US Government (well at least the IRS). That's a big day here at our house. I've been working toward that day for over 2 years now. Meeting with a recognized expert in the field of business consulting and coaching. Negotiating the contract to use the name Business Partner Peer Groups and getting assistance and coaching from the person who built his business using that name. Arranging for someone to keep the books (not my strong-suit...but if you need a recommendation call me. I have a GREAT bookkeeper). Ironing out the details, designing logos, setting up a website and a podcast, setting dates, working on mission, values, and goals. You know, all the stuff that needs to be done before you can welcome your first customer.
It all seems so daunting at first, but taking it a step at a time, and sometimes "just doing the next right thing" (thanks Frozen 2!), has made it a bit less daunting. It's hard to believe that we are only three weeks away from the date we set over 9 months ago. Our first podcast will go live shortly after Christmas (click on our RSS feed link to be directed to our podcast), and our initial organizational/informational meetings will be held in January and February (watch our Events page for details).
We're almost there and I am so excited about it I could just about pass out. I am excited to see the impact I can have in the lives of others. How I can use my experience and my training to help others be more successful in their business, while I build mine. I'm taking a leap of faith based on the advice of one of my early Mentors, Zig Ziglar who said "You can have everything you want in this life, if you just help enough other people get what they want." This is the entire premise that Unlimited Pie Consulting is based on; building our success on the success of others. To me, there's no better way to build a future, build a business, and be successful.
So, why should you read this blog and listen to my podcast? Because we'll be discussing some of the greatest books, articles, videos, and advice for leaders. I'll be dishing on some of the most recent books and articles (and I am hoping to have a few authors and experts join us). Better yet we'll be working on taking that information and making it usable to help you grow YOUR business. Whether you lead a 1-person operation (like me) or you're the CEO of a 5 million-plus dollar operation, there will be something you can take away, something you can share, and something that you can help someone else with.
By the way...check out our Services page to see some of what we have to offer. I'd especially like to invite you to come check out what a Business Partner Peer Group can do for you. We'll be building our boards during January and February with our goal of starting to meet regularly by March of 2020. Business Partner Peer Groups are a great way to accelerate your business to new levels of success.
It's an exciting time to be an entrepreneur or a business leader. Join us and be even more excited by what you will achieve in 2020.
Thanks for checking in on us and make it an awesome week!
