2020 Biz Goals and Marketing Planning LOCKDOWN
• Are you a business owner, sales professional, entrepreneur, or independent service provider?
• Do you want to increase your customer/client base and income in 2020?
• Is your 2020 business calendar still looking kind of bare? Or non-existent?
• Would you like some quiet time, structure, guidance, resources, accountability & group brainstorming to help you map out ideas and activities for growing your business in the coming year?
If you answered a big “YES!’ to several of these questions, then this LOCKDOWN is just what you need!
It’s time to roll up your sleeves and lock yourself in a room for some focused brainstorming and quiet time to put some specific marketing activities on the calendar for each week/month/quarter of 2020.
“At first I thought I should have had more coaching and less time to work on my personal things, but then I found that the time to work on my things was invaluable, as I rarely set time apart to do that.” 2015/2016 participant
It may sound like a confusing, daunting or impossible task, but with a little help from me and other dedicated, driven & resourceful business owners, you can walk away with a good plan and actionable activities on your calendar that you can get excited about implementing!
For business owners, a new year means new opportunities to make this year better than last in terms of impact, client base/influence, and income.
A VITAL component to making that happen is a year-end review/assessment (What “rocked” and what “sucked”) and strategic planning for activities and improvements for the next 12 months.
“Most people don’t plan to fail; they fail to plan.”
Don’t go into 2020 without a plan (big picture) and detailed activities and timelines for accomplishing them. That means coming up with ideas and putting them on a calendar (including the dates of the activities that will be required to pull it off).
My intention for this LOCKDOWN is to give you the time and help necessary to develop some sound marketing ideas and assign them to specific or projected dates so you leave with a good blueprint to follow for the coming year.
“This made me realize you have to schedule time for the marketing just like you do for your work hours.” 2014/2016 participant
No matter what kind of business you have (home-based, brick & mortar, product and/or service, network marketing, outside sales, or your own company), this I GUARANTEE this kind of strategic planning and calendaring will make a huge difference in assuring 2020 is more efficient, less stressful, more predictable, and more successful than you could ever imagine!
I participate in a similar event every year to get mine done and I’m so excited for what I have planned! Now I want to help you do it by locking you in a room for 5 hours to GET IT DONE!
Date: Friday, November 22, 2019
Time: 12:00PM to 5:00PM (5 hours, with a working BYOL lunch)
Location: Virginia Beach location on Lynnhaven; address will be emailed to you once you register
NEW VIRTUAL PARTICIPATION OPTION this year! I’ve had many requests over the years to offer a virtual opportunity to participate for those who couldn’t come in person, so I’m working out the details to allow live video participation from your location via video conferencing.
REGISTRATION: There will be a 12-person limit and there is some prep work to do before you come to get the most from the day, so register as early as possible to give yourself enough time to complete it.
Early Bird investment is an unbelievably low $60 (or bring-a-friend special for $50 each when register together) by 11/15/19; $70 for everyone after 11/15/19 (cut-off date is 11/21). Virtual participants will have a discounted rate of $50.

Goals of the LOCKDOWN:
- Review the successes and lessons of 2019 as a jumping-off point for planning 2020
- Develop BOLD business goals to expand your influence, impact, and income
- Learn various ways to find new clients/customers that fits your business
- Develop ideas & plans for marketing and promotion (on your own and through group brainstorming)
- Uncover Strategic Alliances or Referral Partners to help you grow your business
- Set dates for important/recurring/annual activities to make sure you’re working on the right things at the right times
- Reverse engineer your activities (start from the end and work backwards) to assure timely and effective implementation
“Thanks to what I learned in the LOCKDOWN, my partner and I began thinking in terms of short- and long-term profit goals to hit for our business. Not only did we hit them for the year–we surpassed them!” 2014/2016 participant
What the LOCKDOWN Will Look Like:
Preparation assignments will give you some initial insights, ideas, and resources to bring to the event to start filling in your calendar at the Lockdown (plan at least an hour of prep work)
12:00-12:30 WE’LL START OFF with Group Sharing—Each person will share a brief (1 MINUTE) intro. of themselves and their business, along with their Top 3 Goals to achieve during the Lockdown (prep worksheets will be provided upon registration to complete before the Lockdown so you’ll have some targeted goals right from the start) .
12:30-1:30 NEXT, there will be about 45-60 minutes of instruction/guidance by yours truly about targeted and strategic marketing, how to plan a year of activities, and ideas/examples of calendaring and project-management systems.
1:30-3:00 THEN, everyone will have about 90 minutes to jot down their ideas, start assigning projects and activities to each quarter, and mark up their calendar(s) with specific or tentative dates for various activities.
3:00-3:30 WE’LL COME TOGETHER for about 30 minutes to do some group brainstorming on any blocks, ideas, or feedback that people need help with (programs or products to create/promote, marketing activities, timing, resources, catchy titles, etc.). This would be a good time to eat your lunch to keep up your energy.
3:30-4:30 NEXT, you’ll have another hour of silent time to continue filling in your calendar(s) with long-range marketing activities and at least first quarter 2018.
4:30-5:00 WE’LL END with a wrap-up by sharing our calendars and what we’re most excited about, along with our first activity to implement in the next week or two, and ways to keep the momentum going into 2020.
Due to the time allocated for brainstorming and sharing our businesses and goals, I am limiting participation to the first 12 paid registrants, so register early. PLUS you will have more time to work with the pre-Lockdown worksheets I will be sending you when you register. It’s crucial that you do this preparation work to get the most out of the limited time we have together (participants who didn’t last year said they REALLY wish they had). There will also be a list of items I suggest you get and bring to the session; you will get details about those when you register.
“I loved all the tools you shared to organize myself (calendar and planning boards). It allowed me to find my own system easy to follow and implement. I think that being organized is a crucial key for my success.” 2014 participant
