Hello and Welcome to the February issue of the OkayNowWhat Newsletter!

February is the shortest month on the calendar, and in the northern hemisphere it is also often the coldest. However we can use that to our advantage in making the necessary or desired changes to our business futures. Many of us started the new year with resolutions, promises to make changes, commitments to ourselves or others, and pledges to do things differently.  For some of us (or perhaps MOST of us), those behavioral changes have begun to recede and perhaps be forgotten.  That is where February comes in and can save our flagging efforts.

Changing our behavior takes work.  It cannot be done by simply wishing it to occur.  In fact, you may have heard that to make something a habit takes 21 days (in truth, for that behavior to become" automatic" it often takes much longer, but the motivation, commitment, and reinforcement of the new behaviors can be formed within a few weeks). Given that February is a short month, and most people will spend the large part of it indoors out of the inclement weather, it is the perfect duration and conditions for you to dedicate yourself to the habit of working on your business idea and furthering you progress on the path to entrepreneurial success!

The upside of giving yourself this month to pushing forward on your business is that you are not likely missing out on anything "fun" as most people will still be on a pause from the end of the year holidays. As the Covid-19 virus still remains with us, you are probably wary of being further exposed than necessary and can use working on your business idea as a readymade explanation for avoiding social contact.  Additionally, being able to see the progress being made will create momentum that will carry you through to the Spring when your habit will be formed and you will not as easily abandon it.

  Taking it step-by-step, we can help you build your business habit: 

1. Level of commitment

2. Accountability

3. Size of habit

4. MOST IMPORTANTLY - An entrepreneurial mindset for achievement and accomplishment.

After over 30 years working in corporate training, sales enablement, management and having worn the hats of; corporate employee, entrepreneur, author, academic, keynote speaker, and youth sports coach and mentor, I am now adding to my roster of jobs - business coach.  While I still maintain the original businesses (www.zahnconsulting.com and www.workshop360.biz), I am now adding www.okaynowwhat.biz.  It is through this new offering that I will assist new entrepreneurs, those considering becoming entrepreneurs, and business professionals who want to rekindle the spark they once had for the work they do - but have lost their passion over time.

I want to be of service - it is through that effort that the greatest rewards can be found and shared with others.  Having seen and experienced much in my career from many different sides of business relationships, I want to share it with others and provide the learning to help others accomplish their goals.

Together, we CAN achieve great things.  Working collaboratively and meeting each challenge as it arises and overcoming it until we feel completely confident in your ability to do so without guidance.  Working with your own private cheering section to lift you up when you stumble and provide you with guardrails and a metaphorical safety harness when trying new things to expand your reach and capability.  

If you are ready, so am I!  We can do this!  Click here to get started!

If you are certain you are ready to embark on your own business launch, you can  schedule a no obligation "Chat and Chew With You" conversation to explore whether my business coaching is right for you, click here


If you are a solopreneur or own a small business, you must become familiar with a platform called Zapier.  Most solopreneurs and small business owners struggle with integrating and coordinating their various applications.  They use one application to send emails, another for auto-responder messaging, a different one for calendar and scheduling, perhaps an additional one for project management, try to integrate yet another for invoicing, etc.   With Zapier, you get to have all of the various applications talking with each other and you can tailor the forms and reporting to your unique needs.  If you are not familiar with Zapier yet, I highly suggest you click here to become aware of what you are missing!

 Try it. You will find a treasure trove of opportunity!


We have now launched our hybrid ONLINE training with REMOTE VIRTUAL LIVE Coaching.  Click here for details.

Additionally we have released our Three-Day Challenge MasterClass "Retiree to Rockin' and Rollin' Entrepreneur (a short ten minute video each day for three consecutive days). Click here for access.
