I am excited to get started with this challenge.Hopefully it will be the kick in the rear that I need. There are a couple of ideas that I have in mind:
1) I want to increase my income from my current business to $50,000 this year (that's double from last year). I wrote a business plan at the first of the year with my goals but I need to kick it up a notch and start implementing some of the strategies that have been procrastinated on.
2) My passion is travel but I have been too chicken to jump in and try. I've been afraid that it would be too much on me to manage both but I am committing that I am going to give it a try. If I don't at least give it a whirl, I will forever have regrets and will never know for sure.
With that I need to decide on a host (to be a home based agent), attend online training/webinars, order business cards, set up a business line, and work on advertising/direct mail pieces. The host co will provide a website so that will already be taken care of.
3) I am going to get an internet info business started once and for all. Back in Nov, I had articles written and was in the process of implementing when my computer crashed and I lost everything. (Yes it was stupid that I didn't have it backed up...lesson learned). Now I just need to refocus and get it done. I was going to start a blog and website and monetize off affliate products using article marketing. But now I have an interest in either creating my own information product or creating a membership site that would not only be profitable but provide help and support to others. My goal over the next few weeks is to narrow down and decide what I want to focus on first so I can get it up and going.
4) I am going to clear out past projects and ideas from my house. I have had so many ideas for making money but I have a huge problem with following through. As a result, I have inventory and supplies taking up space and creating clutter in my house. I want to review those past projects and see if there is anything that I could implement now or if it would just be a time sucking waste. If not I am going to sell what I can on ebay, yard sale, etc... to earn some extra change. What I can't sell or use, I am donating to charity or throwing out.
My goal is to earn $100,000 this year. Big goal for me but I am going to believe that it will happen.
My overall long term goal would be to have enough income coming in that I can automate my current business so hired help can run it without me. The way it is now is a drain on my energy as I can never completely leave it to go on vacation, etc.. Even on vacation I have to have my phone and computer/internet available in case something is needed so I am always plugged in and it is wearing. I enjoy it but I don't love it. I will never be able to leave it completely (without outright closing) but I would like to be able to work on it part time so my time and energy could be used to enjoy life which is what it really is about. The other businesses could be worked on anywhere in the world and less wearing on my energy.
I do want to ask anyone participating to help me out. I have already said that I have a hard time following through so you have my permission to kick my butt if I slack and procrastinate.
I need all the motivation I can get so I can reach my goal.
