Hey, Elevated Entrepreneur! Don’t you just love fresh starts, clean slates, and a New Year? While 2020 will be far from forgotten, I’m grateful for being able to turn over a new leaf and set new, inspired, and intentional goals for 2021. In today’s episode, we’ll be talking less about the accomplishments I want to achieve and more about the mindset and actions I’ll be doing in the coming year. You’ll also learn how I’m setting myself up for success using my 3-2-1 Method. Curious to know what it’s all about? Then let’s dive into the episode and begin!

 On using a planner: “It’s a great way to be streamlined and to be thoughtful about what needs to be achieved on a weekly, monthly, quarterly, yearly basis versus just showing up and dealing with the fires as they happen.”

“I want to get better at my ability to not work constantly… If you’re always working you don’t have time to appreciate your loved ones your friends, your family, you don’t have time to do other things that you like… Turning off on time is something that I want to make sure I do better in 2021.”

“I spent all of 2020 thinking about what makes for a good life, what makes me happy… But you know, I’ve come to realize at the end of 2020, it’s not about where I spend that life. It’s about who I spend that life with but more than that, it’s about what I do in this life, it’s about what I do on a day-to-day basis that’s going to make me happy and I control my happiness.”
