Creating a 90 Day Marketing Plan

I am re publishing this article today for several reasons. Most importantly is that I want people to have an opportunity to make 2011 a really great year and that starts by building a plan.

Discipline, willpower, self-control - Whatever you call it, self-discipline is difficult for many people. Some days you think you simply don't have it in you to make those 10 cold calls, and other days it seems much easier to drive by the gym than to go in and do a work out.
