Episode 12 Free to Be Podcast Planning Tips for 2019 | Plan with me for 2019, planning tips, 2019 resolutions, 2019 planning ideas | Michelle Knight

Today’s episode is a little impromptu because I think it’s needed! I’ve been watching so many entrepreneurs over the past year fly by the seat of their pants, and while I see incredible value in leading with inspiration, I also see too many entrepreneurs taking action from a place of desperation. My secret to avoiding this has always been planning.

In today’s episode, I’m sharing how you can plan for 2019 starting today and set yourself up for major success in the new year.

Things we talk about in this episode:

↠ How to start taking your shit seriously
↠ What made the biggest difference when I started my business
↠ How to avoid the entrepreneur end of the year trap
↠ The exact four-phase process I use to plan for the year ahead
↠ The exact questions I ask myself when planning for the year ahead

Speaking of planning, don’t forget the doors are now open to my signature program Roadmap to Freedom, but are closing soon! Roadmap to Freedom is my 6-month LIVE group program for the new female entrepreneur who is ready to launch an online business that allows her to make money on her own terms.

It's for the woman who is tired of just guessing at creating her profitable business and wants to seriously start making sh*t happen!

This program was designed to give you the COMPLETE roadmap, to remove the feeling of overwhelm and give you the support and accountability from someone who has been exactly where you are now so you can dig deeper than you could ever do on your own.

Hey there, I'm Michelle Knight

Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I'm a mother, wife, world traveler and storyteller. I created my own business just after having my first baby and while working a 9 to 5.

Within one year I left my 9 to 5 and created a 6-figure business. Now I spend my days as a Branding and Business coach for female entrepreneurs, raise my little boy and travel the world with my little family of 3.
