Here's How You Can Make 2009 Your RICHEST Year Yet(Really!)
By Derek Gehl
Can you believe it's already
the last few days before the holidays?!
Funny, it feels like the older I get, the FASTER
the years fly by. (My Dad used to say the same thing all the time when I was a kid. Guess you really DO
grow up to become your parents ;-)
I'm about to head out the door to attend our annual IMC company Christmas party, and from there, it's just a few more days before I take a break to spend some time with my family and friends.
This will be a particularly memorable holiday for me, because it's my son Hunter's first Christmas. I can't wait! :-)
I hope you've also got plans to get as far away from your computer as possible
for a few days, and spend some quality time relaxing and sharing good food and good times with those you're closest to.
After the challenging year we've just had, I think we ALL deserve a little "R and R," don't you?
Sorry, I don't mean
to be a party pooper, but it's pretty hard to send out a business newsletter without at least mentioning
what's been foremost on most people's minds for most of the year: the economy.
There's no denying that this year was a tough one.
We saw more bankruptcies, job losses, and home foreclosures than ever
this year, and the financial "eggheads" recently confirmed what the rest of us have known for months:
we're officially in a recession, and it's likely to persist through the coming year.
So does this mean you should be running scared in 2009?
Is it time to batten down the hatches, pull up the drawbridge, barricade the doors, shutter the windows, and hide under the bed until it all blows over??
Far from it! You're going to want to face 2009 head on, and throw everything you've GOT at it!
Because here's the thing: all signs point to online spending in 2009 INCREASING BY 14%
I know it may seem hard to believe right now, but the truth is, due to the weakened economy, more people will be on the Internet next year than EVER.
They'll be using their computers for everything from bargain hunting and product research, to finding ways to upgrade their skills, to searching for ideas for new ways to make money.
So your chances of making MORE profits next year are very good
But you ARE going to need to do some careful planning if you want to take advantage of this coming surge in online activity, and you're going to want to make sure you're ready for the new year SOON!
If you procrastinate AT ALL, there's a possibility you'll end up dead in the water!
To help you avoid
procrastinating (we're ALL guilty of it from time to time!), I'm putting together a free video for you that's going to show you how to set solid, realistic
goals for the coming year -- and STICK TO THEM -- so that you're able to embrace the challenges that are coming
... and turn them to your ADVANTAGE
It'll be ready on December 29th, so you'll be able to start 2009 already
primed and ready to go. I'll send you an email as soon as it's ready, and show you where to go to watch it.
Meanwhile, there's no denying there are going to be some challenges for ALL of us this coming year, but if you stay focused, and stick to your plan, you'll come through with flying colors...
... and your business will be that much STRONGER for having weathered this storm
(and sooner or later, it will
So for the moment, relax, take some time to enjoy all the things in your life that really
matter -- like your family, your health, and your happiness -- and we'll meet up a few days after Christmas, when I'll show you how to get yourself ready to make 2009 your richest year yet
Until then, have a safe and happy holiday!
