Welcome to MyMarketingPass! So what do you do first (or next)? 


Keep yourself on track and moving in the right direction by starting in the right place. First, we're going to identify where you are in your business and what you've already accomplished so far. That will help you plan your next best steps and start executing them as efficiently as possible, without getting overwhelmed.


Contrary to popular belief, your growing business is less of a living, breathing, organism, and more of a clever combination of pieces that work together. It's a system that becomes more than the sum of its parts that you build and improve over time. This is great news for you because that means you don't need to panic putting everything into place all at once! It's all just one or two pieces at a time.

 

Moving ahead and confidently growing your business really can be easy and even fun! The best thing to do is start by establishing where you currently are with your business, what milestones you've reached, and which we need to address next. Refer back to this guide over time and keep working to establish and perfect each step.


It's almost impossible not to have a successful business if you put all of these pieces together in the right order. The trick is not getting overwhelmed and getting it done one or two steps at a time. Remember, as long as you have a MyMarketingPass membership you are never alone.

Once you've located where your business currently sits on the Level Map, you now have two primary objectives moving forward:

 

1. Look carefully through the milestones for the levels that precede where you are now to see if there is anything important you’ve missed. It's not uncommon for businesses to reach advanced levels without laying the prior proper groundwork by sheer force of will (which is always to be admired), but to keep moving forward they'll want to plug the holes first so that they don't lead to unnecessary challenges in the future. It’s often a good idea to address these outstanding elements before moving on to new milestones. 

 

2. Complete new milestones corresponding to your current level. Decide which of the unmet milestones in your level have the most benefit to your progress and begin working on them to completion.

 

If you do these two things, you will always know what to do next and will never get lost on your way to building your business again!
