Goal Setting for Greatness

Welcome to my weekly goal setting linky. Thank you to everyone who joined in last week; for those who didn’t, here’s how it works. You can set yourself some goals, and join up to the linky – then we all leave positive and supportive comments on each other’s posts. Next week, we all come back and review how we did with this week’s goals, and then set some more.

I also set myself monthly goals, which you are of course welcome to join in with.

The only rules are that you must visit the two people directly ahead of you, and leave a supportive comment on their blog. There’s also a badge at the bottom of the page to add to your post.

 

Goals for June: An Update

Maintain my Current Income Level – Obviously, it’s not quite the end of the month yet so I’ve not completed all of my invoicing… but I think by the time I do, my invoicing will have exceeded last month’s by more than 10%. That said £150 of it is an invoice that’s not sure for payment until August… so it’s hard to say.

Improve my Blog Traffic -I don’t think I quite hit that this month, to be honest. I had loads of ideas for posts but it’s honestly been such a bonkers month, I’ve just not had the time to write or promote posts properly.

Book in More Training/Speaking – I got to about half way through this month and thought I was going to fail miserably at this one – but then I got together with a friend and put together a plan, and I’ve already done some training with a couple of local companies and have more lined up in the coming weeks. Nailed it!

 

 

Goals for July

Increase my Income by 5%  – I was going to say 10%, but I’d rather make an achievable goal and nail it. I have lots of ideas up my sleeve, and more time for work than I have over the last six months so I’m confident I can drum up some more work.

Work on the Background of the Blog – I feel like now I’m in a routine with regard to posting, but there are lots of things I’d like to sort out with regard to the nuts and bolts of it. Things like sorting the categories and editing older posts which haven’t been touched since I moved over to self-hosted in October last year. Time to get going!

Write an E-Book – at the beginning of this year I wrote a list of blogging goals for the year and publishing an e book was on that list. I’ve done very little towards achieving that goal, despite the fact I’ve had several ideas buzzing about my head. July marks the start of the second half of the year, so it’s time to pull my socks up and get on with it!

 

 

Last Week’s Weekly Goals

 

Finish that accounting job – er… I’m almost done! This is an ongoing thing as I know my client is keen to get her return submitted so I’ve no choice but to finish it!

Write up my notes from BritMums Live – I’ve been through some, but not all of them. Must do better!

Nail some training – Yep, nailed it! I was really nervous because I knew the person I was training is the sort of person who will tell you straight if they don’t feel they’ve learned anything, or don’t feel they’ve had value for money. But the feedback I had was good. Win!

This week’s goals

Send at least two piptch emails – I know I can send out a damn good pitch if I put my mind to it, and if I want to increase my income I need to get some more work in!
Get my monthly newsletter sent out on time – In June, on a whim, I send out my first newsletter. I have big plans to improve this month’s newsletter and have it include more exclusive content and perhaps even some sort of giveaway… which means I need to pull my finger out and get it organised! (ps, you can sign up here!)
Write at least 10,000 words for the book – I have a couple of “spare-ish” days this week, where I’m usually used to working flat out. I want to make the most of them. Ten thousand sounds like a lot, but large parts of it are being repurposed from some old blog posts so in theory, this part is more editing than writing! (though I do retype every single word)

Now it’s your turn! If you’d like to join in please add the badge below to your post, and link it up here:
