Goals Galore!Written by Terri Seymour
Our lives, personal and business are made up of a series of goals. We want to be successful, happy, earn a good living, have a family and so on. But how do we achieve these goals? Hopefully, in our personal life, we meet right person to help us make our personal goals happen. For some of us, this happens right away and for some it may take a lot of years. When it does happen, all of your personal goals can become reality. Our business goals on other hand, may take more work to make them happen.
When you are deciding on your business goals, one thing you can do is divide your one main goal into several smaller goals that will make your main goal seem more attainable. Instead of your goal being to make a million dollars a year, you can divide this into yearly, monthly, weekly and also daily goals.
For example: If you are an ezine publisher and your goal is 100,000 subscribers, your first year goal could be set at 1000. You make your goals into attainable steps and follow those steps to success. You will accomplish more and not be so easily discouraged by working your business this way.
When you first decide you want to start your own business, what you should do is write down your plan for your business and also what you want your main goal to be. Put all this in an outline. Then you decide on smaller monthly, weekly and yearly goals to work for in order to achieve your main goal.
Another good idea is to organize each day by what you want to achieve for that day. Organize your time each day into blocks and write down what is to get done in each time block. Example:
6:00-7:00 Breakfast and kids to school. 7:00-8:00am Read and answer all emails. 8:00-10:00am Domestic Chores 10:00-12:00am Promotion & Site Maintenance 12:00-1:00 Lunch Break 1:00- 2:00 Answer Emails 2:00-4:00 Work on Ebook and/or Website 4:00-6:00 Cook & Eat Supper & Do Dishes 6:00-8:00 Work on ezine & articles. 8:00-10:00 Break 10:00-11:00 Answer Emails
Missing Profits By 12 InchesWritten by Robert Holladay
I remember when I first began trying to build an on-line business. I was very BLESSED to meet a fellow, that has now become my mentor and best friend. I was so GREEN, to Internet world, I didn't know an auto responder from a whole in ground, so to speak...hehe, he really had his work cut out for him.
I kept in touch with my friend everyday, through email and Icq, asking questions, until he finally taught me enough, that I began asking RIGHT questions. But I remember FRUSTRATION I felt when he would send me exact same ad he was using,and had gotten a tremendous response with it , but when I used it, I would get ZILCH NADA , NIL !! I couldn't figure out WHY I couldn't get a response, with same exact ad he had just received an AVALANCHE of responses with !! I was missing profits by just 12 inches.
Folks, I can honestly say....after being in on-line marketing field for years now, and have trained others to follow my lead, I understand PHENOMENON I experienced and no doubt practically everyone experiences, when first starting out. Wanna know what it is ? I'm glad you asked :o)
If you want to become WEALTHY on outside, you must FIRST become wealthy on inside. I've discovered that you can have all right tools, you can have greatest web site, flash presentations, and best comp plans in place, but if you don't begin to see yourself prosperous in your HEART then you will NEVER be able to effectively communicate to your downlines and to those you sponsor. And you will continue to MISS PROFITS BY 12 INCHES.
