4 Entrepreneurs Share their Biggest Goal for 2019
Happy Monday, babes! Let’s talk about the ‘G’ word. GOALS.
Setting goals that will help you move into the next level of your business is a fun & exciting part about being an entrepreneur. That ability to be in control of how much you earn, who you work with, and what project you decide to take on is such a gift. We asked 4 women what their biggest goal for 2019 is and here’s what they had to say.
What’s a goal you’ve set for yourself this year? Let me know in the comments so I can cheer you on! Have a great week & stay boss. -Gina
“I have a few business goals for the year, some to do with growth and revenue, and others that deal more specifically with the client experience. A personal goal I have set is to get involved with more speaking engagements this year, as I truly believe that education around financial topics and planning is so important – you don’t know what you don’t know! I have a few things on the calendar already, and I think that continuing to grow my network of connections will be vital to making this goal a reality.”
“I have SO many goals, it's hard to pick one. But I think the one thing that will drive all of my other goals, is my goal of being super strategic and consistent with my content this year. My plan is to create bi-weekly blog posts and go waaayyy out of my comfort zone by doing 1-2 Facebook Lives a month (gulp).
To make it happen, I've reserved every Friday JUST for my business and I'm batching all my content. It's now my favorite day of the week because it's dedicated 100% to my business. It's the first time I'm able to do it, and I'm loving every minute!”
“One big goal I have for myself and my business this year is to become as great of a business woman as I am an artist. I believe in my abilities as an artist, but when it comes to the business-y side of things I’ve always been a little anti-excel sheet and automation software because I don’t know a whole lot about them. I decided back in the fall that I would be taking January and most of February to set up invoicing and accounting software, create a master excel sheet that really breaks down what needs to get done around here, (if you haven’t done this, I encourage you to because handwritten to-do’s as much as I love ‘em don’t cut it for the long term goals), setting up a calendar time blocking system that allows me to realistically view my day and also not get burnt out on just one project or client deadline, and setting up all of my email templates & design and pricing guides into PDF’s. This probably sounds so boring, but it’s actually been less tedious than I expected and I know in the long run it will pay off big time– in fact, it already has.”

“My goals this year are many! I want to reflect all of my work last year so I can focus and refine the types of projects I want to take on this year. I also want to make a priority to get client feedback after jobs are finished: (What did we do right? What did we miss on? How can we improve your experience?). I want to upgrade and improve my studio/client experience. I want to continue to network and build partnerships with like minded individuals. And lastly, I want to continue to focus on getting published– more and more!”
