One Thing Kyle Suggested That I Hadn't Thought Of
There have been a several blog posts done on Kyle's Live Training that was given the week before last. If you have not already seen it, I urge you to watch it here:
I am not going to give you my overall thoughts on Kyle's training, but I thought that I would share on of the things I learned from it.
Now, I am big on keeping journals. I keep a personal journal, a daily activity journal, and a health journal/migraine journal. They have helped me in numerous ways in the past. This being said, I was a bit taken aback when Kyle said that one of the best things you could do to build your brand was to keep a business journal. Why didn't I think of that?
To be honest, I didn't really know until I thought of it. When I thought on it, I realized that I had been using my daily activities journal as a business journal in a sense. I was jotting down ideas for articles for my website in it, but that isn't all that I shouldn't be doing.
Keeping a business journal includes recording your successes, your failures, ideas for articles, things you have learned in your niche and your ideas for blog posts and raining. It also includes writing down what you have tried and the results, your business goals, and perhaps even a schedule and/or a list of tasks that you should do daily (or weekly, monthly, quarterly. It could also include a budget for advertising or other promotions for your website or your brand.
Now that I have thought about it, I wondered why I haven't thought of it before. I constantly come up with ideas for blog post or training here on WA while going through my notifications, only to have forgotten them when I get around to actually creating them. It's amazing that I even remember that I wanted to do them in the first place!
So what are your thoughts on keeping a business journal and what things do you think it would be important to keep in one?
