Hey What Goals Did You Set for 2017?

If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you.

Does everyone agree?  If it doesn't challenge you, it won't change you?  It is an interesting idea to think about.  We are closing out January 2017 in a flash.  This is the time I like to step back and see if I am sticking to my that I brainstormed in December.  I have them written down, but am I actually following through.  This happens all to often.  Our ideas are lofty and soon are gone.  I decided this is not what I was going to do.  The first thing I decided was to not use the word "resolution".  To often in the past, the word jumbles up what you really want to achieve.  So goal one met!  Simple, right?  


I wish setting goals and maintaining the work to meet them was simple.  It is not.  It is hard work, but can be done.  So, let's talk about what goals I have and what you have.  My goals are mixed in with personal and business.  I think this has happened because I work from home now so the two intermingle so much.  Anyone feel like that too?

Goal 1:

Staying healthy and and in shape is important to me, but I will admit this is always a challenge.  Why?  Because I love to eat food!  I do not like to count calories, watch how much fat is in something, or even how many carbs it has.  I just love to eat it!  In 2012 my Endocrinologist told me I have insulin resistance with reactive hypoglycemia.  

Essentially, it means, I have to watch what I eat!  It was a punch in the gut!  And I did and I felt better and I added in more exercise as instructed.  I feel great and have come to a balance.  Then why is this a goal, because I slip off the "wagon" like everyone else.

 Hell, I went a step further and started two weeks before 2017 just so that I wasn't a cliche.  I started kickboxing and resumed my at home workouts again too.  In one month, clothes are feeling great and I lost 3lbs.  I'm not looking to lose, my goal is to be health and in shape.  I am seeing success!!

Goal 2:

This one is completely business related.  I have been studying, and learning the online business world.  I was never a business major, so bare with me, it is all brand new.  In my discoveries I started reading and hearing about sales funnels.  I read more and discovered more.  My goal for 2017 is to construct a strong, profitable sales funnel.  The idea of it overwhelmed me.  I have reached out for help this time.  I will be going to a Mastermind Group in Miami in 10 days to create and implement my first sales funnel.  I am so excited an overwhelmed.  I will be so excited to complete the next step!  Any advice, share it below!  I would love to hear about it.

Goal 3:

Goal three is what I am currently brainstorming and working through right now.  I want to create a private Facebook Group centered around decor, inspiration, education and more.

I have ideas and implementations, but I really need you hear from you.  

  • What would draw you to a group like this?  
  • What topics would you like learn about?  
  • What challenges do you have with your own home decor?

This is my next be goal to conquer, but I really need you to partner up with me so it will succeed.  I am so excited for this project and hope you will be too!

Goal 4:

This is an important goal for my business as well!  I want to hire a VA (virtual assistant).  I am working hard on a daily basis and need someone to keep things organized.   I need help with Social Media marketing and promotions.  I am clearly feeling overwhelmed and know that I need to outsource!  This will be in my near future, but I haven't worked on any prospects yet.  

Do you know anyone interested?

Goal 5:

This goal is for my home.  We moved into our amazing house 6 years ago!  When we did, we made some initial changes. Now, other things have crept in and we cannot ignore them anymore.  We started this goal mid-year of 2016.  

We replaced the back deck with a patio.  Since then, we have renovated the living room and replaced the tiled hearth with a marble tile. Georgeous!  We are finishing up the powder room now.  You can check out our progress below.  We have other projects down the pike for 2017 and I hope they all go off without a hitch!

So, like the quotes says, if it isn't challenging, it won't change you!  I have taken on some very challenging goals this year and I can see positive change coming my way!

Now, I would love to hear from you!  I really need help with goal number 3.  I want to create a group, but I want it to be what you want and need to help you in your home.  Share your ideas below.  Thanks!
