TODAY is the day!
Reserve 15 minutes today and seriously think
about the type of work enjoy doing.
Recently, I shared a very aggressive financial goal that I wanted to achieve by summer. I immediately wrote down the goal and began to draft my plan to reach the goal on paper. It took some time to think about those types of work that I really enjoy doing. After all, work is work. You know, that four-letter word that seems to shadow every day of our lives.
Since the time I shared the goal, I have been making time every day to think about that personal goal that I set, and I continue to jot down the many ideas of ways to make money in order to achieve the goal.
As you will read in the following lines; though I have not arrived to my personal goal yet, I have started and am definitely on my way. I want to keep you in the loop with the progress with hopes that:
1. I will remain accountable in order to keep thinking, jotting, and doing.
2. You will be encouraged and challenged to begin moving yourself toward your goal.
April 2013: $1,100.00
$900.00 Commission earned from a business referral program
$200.00 Freelance revenue to help a client with research
Though I still have a long way to go before I reach my $10,000 per month goal, I am encouraged. A few weeks ago, I was earning no additional income. This month, I received my first big step toward the goal. Next month, I leap to the next step with an estimated $2,000.00 coming in additional income.
MAY 2013: $1,800.00 (estimate)
$1,200.00 confirmed income from a promotional campaign that I had helped create for a client
$ 400.00 confirmed commission coming from another business referral program
$ 200.00 potential freelance revenue to help a client with more research
Looking ahead, I have been working through these ideas that I trust will be substantial steps moving me toward my monthly goal.
1. NICHE WESITE. After a few weeks of due diligence, I have discovered what I think to be a profitable niche product. I plan to create a niche website that will hopefully generate a growing passive income stream for me. I’ll keep you posted on the progress.
2. BUSINESS PARTNERSHIP. I am very excited about this one. I am currently in discussions with a business partner who has asked me to join him to help get his new company started. With a couple of proposals already in the works, this project has the potential to quickly move me toward the monthly goal. Stay tuned.
So yes – though it’s been a slow process, I am very encouraged with the progress so far. More to come!
Today is the day! Take a few minutes and seriously thinking about the type of work/business that you enjoy doing.
