If you ended 2018 thinking it was a ruff year, or that you could have done more. Trust me, you’re not the only one.
The good thing is that you made it out alive.
Now that we’ve kicked 2018 to the curb, there’s no better time than now to set your business up for success in 2019.
Sustainable success is something that doesn’t happen by accident.
With that being said, here are our best suggestions to reaching all your business goals this 2019.
Set One Realistic Goal
Running a business can be tedious. Us entrepreneurs have a ton of task that we need to do, and it’s not just because we ‘want’ to do it, it’s because we ‘need’ to do it for our business to continue on the right track.
⇒Ask yourself, “What is one of the coolest things that can happen with my business this year?”
Use that one cool thing as your focal point. Forget about everything else and make that one goal your target for 2019!
⇒Once you have that one main goal, break it down into three little goals to make it happen.
⇒As a last goal setting step, give each small goal three habits. These habits should be incorporated into your daily life somehow.
The aim is to create daily habits that will ensure we reach our business goal. Below is a small graphic demonstrating what was explained:
Use the Right Tools
I know it sucks to spend money. One of the major obstacles I overcame was the fear of spending money on my business. I had to realize that my fear came from the thought that I wasn’t going to make the money back.
I’m all about the frugal life so forking out big bucks for business necessities was not my thing until recently.
There is going to come a time where you will need to fork out cash for the success of your business. (Investing in yourself.)
I’m encouraging you to not hold back. Worst case scenario, you spend that money on a burger.
⇒Here’s a list of tools that I use on the regular for my digital business which has NEVER failed me (some of them are free):
- SiteGround web hosting
- Envato Elements (I use them for unlimited wordpress themes, plugins and video downloads)
- Tailwind Scheduler (for social media posting. Click here to get your first month free)
- OneUp (for social media posting)
- Google Docs
- Desk calendar
- Bullet Journal
These tools are specific to digital entrepreneurs. However, if your business is not digital I highly encourage you to seek out all the important tools you’ll need to run your business this 2019. If you’re thinking about starting a digital business, you can start here.
This is something that’s overlooked by many digital entrepreneurs being that most of us are glued to our laptops 70% of the day.
Spending all day, everyday in your pajamas is an actual thing in the digital community.
Networking allows you to build healthy business relationships with others which can sometimes mean everything to the success of your business.
Here are a couple of ways you can network as a digital entrepreneur:
- Guest post
- Web Interviews
- Scheduled meet and greet’s with audience
