Set Your Goals
Long Term Goal Setting
Setting yourself some realistic goals and targets for your new business is essential.
As a wise man once said, you are much more likely to hit the target if you know which direction to aim the arrow!
In the intial stages of choosing your business, consider longer term goals for 3 years and 5 years.
For example, set your income targets and what you want to achieve with your business at each milestone.
If you have a firm idea of your business, also consider what your targets for the following might be at each milestone.
Not all may apply but it will give you something to consider and plan for.
Shorter Term Goals
Now you have evaluated your opportunity and have decided to start your own business it is time to set some shorter term goals to focus your initial efforts.
90 day Goals
If you are just starting out on your home business journey, it is essential that you consider your goals. Research shows that those with goals are far more likely to succeed than those that don?t have any.
Knowing where you want to be will help drive you to get there and focus your efforts.
Starting out in business on your own is tough and if you have no goals you run the risk of drifting and wasting time and effort on things that will not help you to achieve your aims.
Once you have a better idea of what business you are going to start, consider setting some specific goals that will help you through your first 90 days.
Write down 5 things that you most want to achieve in the next 90 days. Make sure these are things that will stretch and challenge you but that will also help you to achieve specific targets in your business.
For example, create a website which will form the centre of my marketing plan. Specify what skills you need to learn and what tools you need to master in order to set it up to include lead capture.
