How was 2009 for you?
Have you created a blueprint for success in 2010?

2009 was a tough year for me and my family. I earned much less than the previous year. The recession may have had something to do with it as I had less customers who wanted a website designed, redesigned, hosted or wanted SEO help. My family was shocked to discover my wife had a hyperactive thyroid. It took several weeks of radiation therapy (a $1000 pill) to get recover her health.

Instead of dwelling on the negative I first look at what I’m grateful for ie wife, kids, friends, house, food, clothing, health, etc. These are the reasons I work so hard at my web design company.

The key to making 2010 a great year is your mindset. If you keep a positive and grateful mind opportunities will come your way. Recently I was listening to Joel Osteen’s podcasts while exercising on the treadmill. The reason he built the largest church in the USA..he has a positive message for everyday living. I’m not a member of his church but find his words encouraging and uplifting (unlike
the news or naysayers).

I suggest listening to one of his podcasts called “Program your mind for victory” by clicking on the audio link at: Program your mind for victory. It will help prepare your mind for success in 2010.

Start your “day” with a “To-Do” list.

  • List all the things you need to do that will build your online business, those that will increase the bottom-line.
