Hello 2007! Goodbye 2006! It's time to kick the year off right and I'm going to make several posts today to get caught up and get the new year started right. These past few weeks have been hectic with the book launch now just days away, but I was able to squeeze in some nice and relaxing time at home with the family.
This is going to be a short post to share with you my projects for 2007, which I'll add - I'm very excited about!
- New Book - My new book, You Call the Shots, hits bookstores nationwide Tuesday Jan 9th. This is very exciting because it's really been a 13-year process as it follows my business experiences beginning when I was just nine years old. I wish the book much success and I truly hope my experiences help inspire you in some way. www.youcalltheshotsbook.com
- EasyFollowups.com - An exciting new company which has been long in development. In a nutshell, we're targeting all of the small businesses who are exclusively offline now and who fail to stay in touch with their customers. The inexpensive $99/month price point is going to make this service very attractive. It'll also launch next week and I'll continue to update you on its growth.
- BoostCSI.com - An exciting new company which launched several months ago with the purpose of helping car dealerships improve their customer satisfaction index (CSI) and increase sales. We'll be promoting this heavily with dealers and manufacturers in 2007.
- MillionaireSecrets.com - This new website is going to continue to grow throughout the year. It's built with the book reader in mind and is going to be a continuous resource website for entrepreneurs and small business owners - but also: parents and teachers, sharing with them knowledge on how to better educate our young people on financial literacy and entrepreneurship.
In addition, I'll continue traveling and speaking to groups of all sizes. In 2006, I traveled more than 100,000 miles and from the look of my already booked schedule, I don't see this number decreasing in 2007. I predict job growth to be steady in 2007 and the economy will be strong. I believe the stock market will continue its growth. I predict exciting new growth for web companies, however those which have strong business plan as I feel we are beginning to see a repeat of over-hyped Internet companies as we did in 2000. I hope American families take control of their credit card debt and I families look at their monthly expenses just as CEOs do: To increase profitability (savings), we need to cut costs or increase revenues. So if we don't get a raise or have a business on the side, then we can't increase our monthly expenses. More on this in a separate post.
What are your goals for 2007? You don't have to share them with me, but write them down and share them with those close in your life and you'll find they'll want you to succeed just as much as you do.
