Business Goals for 2015


Happy New Year's!

Today, I'd like to talk a little bit about goals. Every New Year's I set new goals for my business. Why goals and not resolutions? I feel like resolutions makes things sound trite. My business isn't about wishy-washy resolutions. Business is serious. If it wasn't, it would be a hobby. Also, resolutions are seen as something that can be broken. Goals aren't broken; they are something to strive for. [bctt tweet="Even if I don't succeed in a goal, the attempt moves me forward and progress is always good."]

So I set goals.

My 2014 Goals

My 2014 goals went incredibly well. Here is what I set out to do in 2014:

  • Quadruple my earnings from 2013. (Yup, check!)
  • Sell one of my websites for a profit. (Check, check! Plus, I sold extra content to the company that bought the site.)
  • Break 1,000 followers on Twitter. (100% organic. No bought followers!)
  • Revamp my website. (Look around! It's awesome!)

I not only accomplished my goals in 2014, I exceeded them. I want to continue the momentum into 2015. Here are my goals for the new year:

  • Create fantastic, helpful content for the readers of this blog and post it every Thursday. (Make sure to subscribe so that you don't miss a post! Just add your email to the form on the right.)
  • Quadruple my income from 2014. (I quadrupled my income from 2013, so why not do it again?)
  • Increase my online following.

I'll probably add more goals to my list as the year progresses. I like to reevaluate things as the year gets underway and add extra goals.
