C&T Reviews: Roadmap to Action





Do you know where your business is going this week?  This month?  This year?

Have you plotted out a road map to ensure you’re always moving forward and staying on track?

Being your own boss doesn’t mean flying by the seat of your pants.  It means figuring out where you want to go and how to get there using those beautiful, inherent things that make you you!


Roadmap to Action

By: Laura Simms  {Review by Megan E}

Famous for: Being the amazing career coach behind Create as Folk


What It Includes:

  • Roadmap to Action e-book
  • 13 extra printable planners (including a blog calendar, a blog idea generator, a project planner, and many more fun planning sheets)


Why We Loved It:

Unlike other planners, this one actually helps you eliminate tasks via prioritization, outsourcing help, and showing you how to take a bird’s eye view of your business.

Let’s face it, most planners tell you how to do it all.  Laura wants you to focus instead on the things that you NEED to do to keep on the right road to your success.  Her e-book is full of self-inquiry prompts that help you get real about where you want your business to go and what success looks like for you.  In this book (and in your business), there are no right and wrong answers, just the ones that work for you.

So what are you waiting for?  If you’ve been feeling a bit of a jealous pang when you see other makers getting huge press, making hundreds of sales, or joining up with big producers, it’s time to take action and plot out your own road map.  I can assure you that every successful maker knows exactly what path their business is on for the next week, the next month, and the next year.  So join the club!
