14 Day Action Plan

This Action Plan is designed to keep you focused and on-task so you can kick your business into high gear from day one. Your Director may also have their own personalized version of this 14 day plan. Each day is broken up into several manageable steps, so that you are accomplishing a lot, but hopefully not getting overwhelmed. For those of you with limited time, you may need to adjust the time table a little. It may take you more than 14 days to get it all done. For those of you who want fast results and are willing to put whatever time it takes to reach success, you can double-up and complete the whole thing in half the time. It's all up to you. Afterall, this is your new business.
