Design Business Goals
I love getting organized. It is the setting goals that makes me anxious! I have never liked goals- or resolutions- because I think they set me up for failure. If I don’t do exactly what I write, I’m a loser. Well, not this time! This year I am going to work a bit differently.
I am going to set up my goals as good- better-best goals. Instead of big lofty statements like- “I’m going to make $10 million dollars in 2016,” I will have more specific goals like the pretend goals below:
Good: I want to make $500 by selling 2 consulting packages at $250 each
Better: I want to make $10,000 by selling 10 consulting packages at $1,000 each
Best: I was to make $50,000 by selling 25 consulting packages at $2,000 each
This way, I can work backwards to get a plan in place to sell those consulting packages- especially ones that can be beefed up so their value is $2,000 vs. $250. Does that make sense?
I feel so much better since I figured that out! The way I will write my goals will be in this format: Good, which will be totally do-able and Better, which is probably do-able and Best– a huge reach- the kind that I would throw a party around. See how this makes a difference? I won’t be a loser if I don’t accomplish the best goal because I have the good and better to back me up. I am so excited to make and tackle my 2016 goals. This hint was shared by Todd Herman and I love it!!
More important than the goals, is getting organized so I can attack my new goals.
In fact, it is my obsession with organization that was the impetus for the creation of Return on Interiors™! I am always trying to make my behind-the-scenes processes easier and more organized, so I can be ready for anything. But, I realized, I didn’t just want simpler processes to attack my remodeling and design jobs, I wanted all my clients to know I was professional and had everything branded for consistency in our interactions. Thus, Return on Interiors, a unified, organized system to tackle my design projects! Yahoo!
When thinking about 2016, I was determined to help people visualize themselves being organized and ready to tackle their own design and remodel projects. So, I created a Return on Interiors system sampler. The system sampler contains five parts of the system:
- Bedroom-An organizer so you could see how every organizer is formatted
- Bar Seating- visual quick reference guide that can act as a field guide when on the job site. No more guessing final bar heights!
- Kitchen Layouts- A visual guide with some options to maximize flow in your kitchen.
- Bathroom Lighting-Educational guide to enhance bathroom lighting.
- TV Sizes, dimensions and optimal viewing distance- to help you in every room you have a TV
I decided to change my new website so that you can download a system sampler and really understand how the Return on Interiors works. I love helping people and setting them up for success, so I plan on continuing my weekly blog post with downloadable “cheat” sheets and quick reference guides. For this week, I will give you my new System Sampler! Just click here and you will be added to the weekly blog for more tips and inspiration.
If you have any requests for tips- please request them in the comment section! I have so much content that I will share what I have!
I am so excited to tackle next year and I hope you are too! GOOOOOO 2016!
