Episode 80: Quarterly Cadence: the Fastest Way to Build Momentum in Business


This month’s theme is business planning and in this episode we reinforce the idea of establishing a quarterly cadence – yep, 90-days – in your business to build momentum. In Episode 79 we talked about creating a Promotional Plan for the whole year and now we want to bring your next quarter into focus. Can you just identify the big chunks that you want to get done in the next 90 days and file everything else to look at in the next quarter? By reducing the length of time you can reduce overwhelm, increase productivity, build confidence, and also give your business a chance to make course corrections more simply.

“Spontaneity is one of the joys of existence, especially if you prepare for it in advance.” –¬†Alan Dean Foster

Examples of quarterly projects might be:

  • list building
  • getting your tax ID and business registered
  • getting your business financials ready for tax time
  • developing a new course
  • developing a new talk

Once you’ve identified the projects you want to work on in this quarter, put them to paper with specific dates, resources, people, outcomes, and so on and share them with anyone who will play a role. Work the project to completion and then move to the next one. Do this activity quarterly and you will begin to see momentum and progress in how you treat your business!
