Set Your Own Goals

If you’ve ever operated a home-based business opportunity or even a large franchise you know that setting goals is critical to gagging your success. Setting goals should be an integral part of your overall business strategy from the very first day. Taking advice on what those goals should be can be tricky and may cause some tension if you work with others or have a partner. It can often cause some problems.

Often, we’ve repeatedly been told over and over that taking advice and listening to other people who are supposed to be more experienced and wiser than we are is a key to success. I’m here to tell you that this may not be the case at all. Unless these people have very similar experiences, have ran the exact same business opportunity that you are planning to run, or have a specific skill set that applies directly to what you are doing, my advice is to set your own goals. Taking advice from non-experts like friends, business associates, relatives and who knows who else can get you pointed in the wrong direction. It can often cost you time, energy and money.

So, layout your short-term, medium-term, and long-term goals and spend a full day brainstorming. Try not to let emotions like laziness, greed, wanting quick answers and other perfectly normal human factors get in the way. Make sure your set of goals will aid you in making your life easier, as well as, making you more money with less effort.
