Today’s special guest, Charlie Gilkey, is a well-known speaker and advisor on small business growth and strategy. He’s also the author of an Amazon bestseller: The Small Business Life Cycle: The No-Fluff Guide to Navigating the Five Stages of Small Business Growth.
As business owners, we’ve all had good ideas that never came to fruition. Why? In business, ideas don’t get done — but projects do.
Charlie has a passion for helping solos and small business owners to turn their best ideas into projects they can actually finish. The topic of our conversation today is his latest book, The Start Finishing Action Guide: 25 Exercises to Guide You from Idea to Done (subscribe by email at ProductiveFlourishing.com to get your free copy).
In the course of this content-rich interview, Charlie reveals how to:
- turn a compelling idea into a viable project
- start your project strong and gain momentum
- create a project road map to stay on track
- use a two-step process to avoid getting stuck
- complete your project in a way that makes future projects much easier
