One of my goals is to go to Europe.  I want to do business and pleasure in Europe.

In preparing for these types of opportunities are bigger than submitting a speaker proposal, they want to see an abstract.  They want to make sure you understand their culture and their economy. Am I preparing my biz? Yes I am. I am preparing my brand and my message for the expansion.

I love to expand and stretch my vision. I love to challenge the ego to do the things it tells me I am not qualified to do. Living life outside my comfort zone means that I have to go bigger and deeper in my mission.  Why not travel to places you desire to go like China? Why not speak to audiences you desire in London? Why not support a larger cause and a bigger mission in Ghana?

Part of the expansion process is putting systems and processes in place so that your business can still operate while you are away for a week or two.

  • Are you in a position to go away for 3 days? 7 days? 30 days? Will your business still make money?
  • Do you have a team in place to operate your business smoothly and effortlessly?
  • What systems must be in place in your business to take a month-long vacation or business trip?
  • Do you have someone to care for the kids?

I am positioning my business right now to accommodate the lifestyle I want to live.  I am putting systems in place that will allow my passive income sources to continue to produce results, my inner circle members and clients to continue receiving coaching from my team, and my assistants would know exactly what to do in most client management situations.

My biggest concern is my marketing.  I am the marketing strategist and implementer in my biz. I research, I analyze, I create, and I implement all the marketing.

When it comes to your business are you positioning your business to operate without you? Are you positioning your business for expansion? What irreplaceable task do you have in your business right now, that you need to find a clone? Get your business prepared for your great escape?

Where do you plan to go in 2012 or before 2011 is over? I seeking European and African connections, what about you?

    Working virtually ahead of time is a way to expand globally without the immediate need for travel. I have a business partner in Germany and we developed substantial plans before ever meeting using Skype and video conferencing, emails, etc. He was introduced by a trusted friend and is pretty famous, so working with a known entity. (I don’t recommend alliances long distance with strangers…have seen some really really elaborate and drawn out scammers from Africa, Spain, etc.)

    I applaud your efforts to develop a clear strategic road map. You’ve taken the time to become a local celebrity , so I understand the desire to expand your audience reach.

    I am a firm believer in research and planning. Consider submitting proposals to speak for a large corporation with worldwide locations. Proctor & Gamble, British Airways, Virgin Atlantic, Boeing, etc. are all good places to start. Much success!

    Hi Lucinda..this is being posted in 2013…and yes one of the most fundamental tasks is to understand your finances and money matters..both in your personal life and business life.

    If you cannot manage money at home…what will happen to your business

    And then again…if you do not understand money and its process..

    Well…what our country and the world just recently went through is a good example!!
