2022 Strategic Planning Series: How to Be a “Gift to Yourself”

One of the year-end traditions here at Tap the Potential is taking our Better Business, Better Life™ clients through in-depth strategic planning to prepare for the year ahead in order to build those businesses that give them their lives back.

In the first part of this four-part end-of-year Strategic Planning Series, Dr. Sabrina guided us through some powerful questions designed to strengthen our resilience and recognize our accomplishments.

This week, she shares the “Gift to Yourself” exercise because we don’t always stop and take the time to reflect, think, and design what we want, and this series is all about creating that space for yourself to do that!

Please join us as we dive into this second part where we not only look back on your wins, successes, and breakthroughs of 2021, but also take a look at your losses, disappointments, and breakdowns.

This is a very powerful exercise and we sincerely hope you find value in this experience.

Profit by Design is a Tap the Potential Production in collaboration with Small Business Consulting Group.

About The Author

Dr. Sabrina Starling, The Business Psychologist and international best-selling author of the How to Hire the Best series and The 4 Week Vacation™, is the founder of Tap the Potential and host of the Profit by Design podcast. At Tap the Potential, we work to free business owners from the constant demands of a growing business.

We believe work supports life, not the other way around. Clients in our Better Business, Better Life coaching program have more time for what matters most and more money in their bank account than they’ve ever had. Next, we send them off on a 4 Week Vacation™ to celebrate their hard-earned journey to take their life back!

Dr. Sabrina and her team at Tap the Potential are on a mission to change the story of entrepreneurship from one of long hours, grinding it out, to one of sustainably profitable businesses that support and enhance life. The Tap the Potential Solution™ and our Tap the Potential Family of Business Owners are disrupting small business as usual. We are on our way to making the Tap the Potential Solution™ the mainstream model for growing business.

By 2023, 150 Tap the Potential clients will have taken 4 Week Vacations. These are the trailblazers, role modeling what’s possible for entrepreneurs. In many entrepreneurial circles, it is becoming more and more common for one entrepreneur to ask another, “Have you taken a 4 Week Vacation™?” (as opposed to asking “How many employees do you have?” or “What is your annual revenue?”). Taking a fully unplugged 4 Week Vacation is rapidly becoming the recognized symbol of entrepreneurial success.

Never one to accept the status quo or back down from a challenge, Dr. Sabrina’s How to Hire the Best series grew from her desire to solve the toughest hiring challenges interfering with her clients’ growth and profitability. What sprang from her experience working with entrepreneurs in rural areas catapulted her into becoming the world’s leading expert in attracting top talent in small businesses—no matter what hiring challenges those businesses are facing—and earned Tap the Potential’s reputation as the go-to resource for entrepreneurs committed to creating Great Places to Work with thriving coaching cultures and highly engaged team members working from strengths.

As The Business Psychologist, and with her years of driving profit in small businesses, Dr. Sabrina knows what it takes to find, keep, and motivate exceptional performance out of your biggest investment—team members.
