Anything you want to launch in January begins now.


I've just submitted an article to Entrepreneur magazine. It's going to be published in January, and that's an interesting point. The beginning of a new year is an auspicious time for aspiring experts.

What are your primary platforms for positioning yourself as an expert in your industry? Do you use articles in magazines? Video inserts in a TV show? Now is the time to line up those proverbial ducks, so that 2017 starts on the strongest possible note for you. 

This week, I challenge you to think about January 2017, and how you might go about ideally positioning yourself for a strong start. Out-plan the competition, and you could become the greatest in your game.
