February 9, 2018
YIKES! It’s nearly mid-February! You know, that month of “new beginnings”, “new habit’’, “goal-setting”…. is already behind us.
Yes, mid-February, and I still haven’t nailed down my goals for 2018, much less for the next few weeks. How about YOU? So, let’s pull up our britches and get going!!
Make a time, perhaps one hour a day for the next week, to look ahead, dream big, and imagine. What do I want to accomplish this year? Or perhaps for now, what do I want to accomplish this week? As Tracy often says, we can’t move forward until we have some idea of where we want to go!
My big goal is to establish a business that lets me work from home and generate income that will help pay the bills and give me the freedom to pursue the extras life has to offer through travel. In your case, maybe you want to provide the best for your children, or have an income that will give you extra time for that bike ride across the state or country. Maybe you want to go back to school or develop a hobby that you’ve been interested in for years. NOW can be the time, but you need a plan.
Start with consistency. “I’m going to take time to work on goals for one hour a day this week.” You might be able to do this in a few hours. For me, it will likely require at least a few days. Actually, I have been thinking about this for the past few weeks. Now is the time to do it!! I will begin to put my thoughts on paper and get movin’ on this goal thing! Are you with me?
Education is next. And I’m not talking back to school. Take time to explore www.tracyjosmith.com where you will find almost everything you need to get started, (or regroup) with your business. There are sections on Free Resources (schedule and budget forms, goal setting tips, etc.), EG Training (mentoring, coaching via phone chats or email, weekly or monthly) plus a favorite of mine “the one-stop shop”! Here you will find a hearty list of websites and online services that can complement organizing your business. Yes, get started and train as you go.
Waiting for the kids, for the doctor, or anything else that stalls your time???? Watch a video! Sign up for Tracy’s YouTube training videos. Just go to YouTube and type in “tracy entrepreneur girl” and there you have at your fingertips 272 videos, from 5 minutes to an hour or more!
You have a “backpack” of tools referenced above to help you create and build that better business and better life for yourself.
