As I stated previously in my post entitled "The Secret to Growing Your Business," you need to set goals in order to grow your business. Have you set your goals for 2008? If not, now is the time to go for it!
The beginning of the year is always a great time to evaluate where you've come from and what you really want to accomplish with your business. This will also give you a great roadmap so that you can see where you're going in the coming year.
So, if you haven't already done so, make a list! Find a quiet place where you can think and reflect on how you want your business to work for you instead of you working for your business. Now is the time to think of all the things you would like to accomplish this year, the things you regret not having done lastyear, and the things you just wish you had time for. Then, prioritize that list. Be sure to include both personal and business goals on your list so that you are not completely one-sided. If your list has 8 business goals and only 1 or 2 personal goals, you'll quickly either burn out or get stressed and frustrated with working and loose that zeal If your list has more personal goals than business goals, you will end the year wondering how you got there without accomplishing anything significant in your business.
Examples of goals could be:
qualify for the Million Dollar Club for 2008
see at least 2 school plays that your daughter is in
take a family vacation of at least 4 days
actively participate in at least 2 professional organizations
contract with a Virtual Assistant to handle consistent lead management
sponsor a toy drive for Christmas
see at least 4 soccer games your son plays in
Each of these goals can be obtained easily by breaking them down into bite-sized tasks that you can work on each day or month this year so that you accomplish them all. We'll talk about that another day! For now, set some goals for 2008 realizing that, if you do so, you will already be ahead of the game because the majority of professionals just wing it!
Set your goals and we'll talk later about reaching them! Let's hear what some of YOUR goals are for 2008. This is great venue for encouraging each other so that we not only set the goals but actually reach them as well!
How about a little marketing to get your day off to the right start? As a Virtual Assistant, my goal is to help you achieve your goals. Want to grow your business? Come along for the ride as I provide practical tips and suggestions to help you do just that!
