2nd Quarter Goals 2017
I haven't blogged personally in quite a while. I LOVE sharing all the virtual assistant stuff with you and what working at home is like, but I also really love to share my heart and my dreams and my goals. Today, I'd like to list out my goals for the 2nd quarter with you and open up the floor to discussing YOUR goals.
At this moment in time, my husband and I are really struggling. We're both in transitional mindsets: we want to do more, be more, live more, travel more. We want more. But we have no idea how to get started, if we're being honest with ourselves. I was chatting with my friend Shelby about goals and we decided that we're going to do a number of things in 30 days. I thought I'd blog about it to keep me accountable.
I will also list out some affirmations that I'll be saying every day out loud to myself to work on my mindset. (I'd love to hear what your affirmations are, too.)
GOALS for APRIL, MAY & JUNE
These are for blog and business, all rolled into one.
SIGN 3 NEW CLIENTS AS AN OBM.
I have flopped back and forth a lot on whether I will even offer VA services for a while. However, after examining what my true priorities are, I realized that while I'd love to build my own empire, it WILL take time and that's time I don't currently have. It makes me sad to realize that but at the same time, a bit relieved that I don't have to push SO HARD to make money with my courses and affiliate programs just yet.
LAUNCH GO TEAM PODCAST!
In addition to launching my own podcast, my husband and I are starting our own business together as a team, editing podcast episodes. We'll provide transcriptions, show notes, and a fully edited and mixed episode each time someone sends it to us within 72 hours. Justin loves audio editing as he's got all the qualifications of a producer and has produced his own music for years as an emcee and rapper. I'm stoked about this project. (PS. The website is already live. Go and tell me what you think!)
BOOK 5 STEADY GTP CLIENTS.
For Go Team Podcast!, I'd like to book five steady clients by June. That means they plan to be with us for quite a while and we can feel comfortable relying on that income for a bit. (We can dream, right?!) We decided that all we need are 5 good clients to completely replace Justin's income AND provide enough to purchase insurance for our little fam.
RETIRE MY HUSBAND.
He's miserable, to be honest. He hates his job. I shouldn't say hates - he's just unhappy there and finds that what he's doing takes away SO MUCH TIME from his family. I mean, how is it normal to spend 10 hours away from your family every single day? What is this sort of blueprint that America has come up with? We hate it and want nothing to do with the "american dream" - in fact, we want the opposite. We'd rather struggle with a little uncertainty here and there than struggle with feeling miserable. You know? My goal is to be steadily making $5,000/mo by June to make this happen.
BLOG 5 TIMES.
I know, this is a tiny number. Seriously. I used to blog SO REGULARLY. But now, I'm so busy that I'm lucky if I get one in per month. If I make blogging 5 times in three months a goal, maybe I can reach it!! :)
AFFIRMATIONS FOR THE BUSY ENTREPRENEUR
Here are some of mine, as promised.
- What I have, people want.
- I am confident, creative, blessed, and fulfilled.
- My vision for our future is completely achievable.
- We will live in, travel, and explore the entire world.
- Our goals are reachable and our work ethics are unmatched.
- We are beautifully and abundantly blessed by the Lord.
What's your #1 goal for the second quarter?
