It’s officially the end of Q1 of the year, and yet another reason to pause and take stock of your successes from the last quarter and some planning for the month ahead.
Looking backwards to the last quarter:
Now turning to the next quarter’s planning:
What pauses and renewal periods do you want to build in? Grab a calendar and schedule that now.
What else will help you remain at your peak?
Enjoy your reflection and be sure to update your Monthly Tracking Forms in the Coaching Business Builder/PlanDoTrack.
You will also want to fill out some new Quarterly To-Dos and do a weekly breakdown (check out pages 140 and 141 of the PlanDoTrack Workbook and Planner and Coaching Business Builder).
Enjoy the planning and celebrations!

Looking to grow your coaching business this year? Check out the Coaching BizGrowth Lab. We meet the 1st and 3rd weeks of the month for 1 hour group coaching conversations. Focus this month is on collaboration and building community. In addition to the group calls you have access to a growing resource library of monthly articles, templates and recordings. Join us this quarter or for the rest of the year!
Consistent action on your business can be as important in your business in year 15 as it is in year one. One of the key principles of the Coaching Business Builder Workbook and planner is that:
Consistent Action + Daily Steps = Momentum
With that in mind, last month I started a new monthly series here at the CBB blog called the 1 BizStepADay. Last month's focus was on some of the core elements and systems of your business. This month's focus for February is around relationships.
I would like to invite you to download this month's resource - a suggested prompt for you to follow every day of the month.
I've had a number of emails from people saying that they appreciate the prompts. Each one is intended to be a short 5-15 minute activity you can undertake right away. Notice how they build over time!
Download the February prompts around relationships here (in honor of one of February's key events - Valentine's Day. This month we also celebrate Family Day here in Ontario the following weekend).
What's important for you to do and explore this month?
