I published Goal Setting: Everything You Need To Know earlier today.

And what a better way to show that goal setting works than to highlight 5 Ways I’ve Changed My Life / Business For The Better.

I’ve had quite a journey over the past decade so if you need any help in these areas below – contact us on social media or email alex@altrinchamhq.co.uk

I love to see people improve.

1. HEALTH
Once upon a time I weighed nearly 20 stone.

I ate badly, never exercised and didn’t realise how many calories beers had every weekend.

Now I’m 12 stone, been vegan for 4 years and not drank alcohol for 3 years.

My weekends are as much about running as they are about socialising.

If you’re trying #veganuary or #dryjanuary or just exercising more ask any questions.

2. INTROVERT TO BEING HIGHLY VISIBLE
I love public speaking now – ask me to speak at an event and 9/10 times i’ll say yes.

What you might not know is, deep down an introvert.

I had to overcome my introversion to grow my business as building my personal brand, public speaking and being active on social media is what grows my business.

I separate Alex the person from Alex the business owner to help overcome this.

You can as well.

3. DIRECTIONLESS TO GOAL SETTING
Even though before Altrincham HQ I’d been a successful journalist and ran 15,000 capacity arts and music events, everything that happened was kind of by accident.

I worked hard and things happened, but I didn’t set goals.

The 1st year I set goals was my 12 goals for 2012.

I now look back at the last 9 years and think “wow, none of that would have happened without annual goal setting”.

You can make goal setting as simple or as complicated as you want – the very act of thinking where you want to be and writing it down will always drive you forward.

4. ALTRINCHAM TO THE WORLD
When I set up Altrincham HQ in 2009 I did it to help Altrincham businesses.

I hated how my home town in marketing terms was about a decade behind the Northern Quarter and Manchester City Centre.

That micro focus on my home town made me a big fish in a small pond, but it was what happened next that was the unexpected bit.

From being a name in Altrincham, people started approaching me in Greater Manchester, the North West, the UK and then the world.

I’ve worked with businesses in Australia, Canada, Dubai, Italy, Spain, New Zealand and so many more countries in the past few years.

5. SMALL BUSINESSES TO INTERNATIONAL BUSINESSES
One man bands to the BBC, Manchester City, Costa Coffee, Selfridges, United Utilities, Pita Pit, the NHS and more.

What helped me make the leap from small businesses to large corporates.

Customer reviews and testimonials. I have 500+ reviews and growing.

If you have 500+ reviews, people know you’re great at what you do.

EXERCISE >>>WHAT ARE THE WAYS YOU’VE TURNED AROUND YOUR LIFE / BUSINESS

1. Think of the core areas in your life. Here are 5 suggestions.
– Happiness
– Health & Fitness
– Financial
– Relationships
– Social

2. Write down all the things you’ve achieved in the past 5 years or decade

3. Store that list and open it whenever you’re feeling low or down

4. Now think where can you be 5 or 10 years from now – work hard and think of all the possibilities
