What are your immediate goals for your business?

These would be the goals for today or this week only. Ones that have to be reached or started. What absolutely has to be done for you to move forward?

I know that you need long term goals for the future. In order to reach them, you need short term goals. Steps to take to keep everything moving along.

I have business as well as personal goals. These have to be intermeshed in order to keep some balance in my life.

If you write your goal or goals down for today, put them where you will see them. In front of your computer:bg: or maybe on your mirror in the bathroom or perhaps beside the kitchen sink. Wherever you will see them thru the day. Then do it!!!

Here are my goals for today.

Set up a chat with people concerning site.

Find new content concerning beginners.

Post your goals for today or this week. We can help one another reach these goals.

For the next couple of days, I will be finishing up the lessons for my classes that begin January 13. I will also be getting the rest of the materials together, straightening up my sewing area, and makding an outfit to wear to my first class.

I am going to get my sewing area straight and then i'm going to sit down and make a list of shops and businesses that I might be able to market my sewing. I'm going to put the final touches on the business cards that i'm creating and look into getting a domain for my website. I feel pretty good about todays goals because it's already 10:30 am in sunny Mississippi and i'm already half way through.
I like the idea of having daily goals. There's less stress and pressure. -Monica

I'm doing a lot of thinking and reading. I've been making mental lists of my strengths and weaknesses. Mary, I've had your articles printed and put in a notebook. I'll be reading and rereading. Cleaning up my sewing area would be a good idea too.
