Set Your Goals
Short-term, mid-term and long-term. Your goals will change as you develop your business, but without goals you cannot keep focused on what you want to achieve or measure your success.
For example, your goals may be:
Short: Secure a business loan from my bank or start a blog.
Mid: Secure ten clients by the end of six months or buy special equipment.
Long: Employ five staff and open four outlets by the end of three years.
Or, more simply, “To pay my bills and give me the lifestyle and freedom I want.”
Everyone’s goals and timescales will be different, but they are all important. Now to make a plan…
“A goal without a plan is just a wish…” Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
