So I kind of fell off of the wagon with blogging and writing my monthly goals. This is DEFINITELY a habit that I want to get back into. These past couple of months I found myself very overwhelmed with working full-time, working with my awesome planning clients, teaching dance and closing on my first home with Brian. I know in the past, I found that when I actually write out my goals I am A LOT more likely to follow through on completing. Plus blogging about my goals is a great way for me to track my accomplishments over times and you have to reflect on where you were and how far along you have come. Sometimes we beat ourselves up about where we aren’t instead of being excited about how far we have come.

So I stayed on top of sharing my monthly goals with yall for one month… yup one month, September. I should be shame, but hey things happen and hopefully I will pull it together moving forward. Well in reviewing my September goals, I found there are some things that are still lingering in the air. So instead of creating a whole new set of goals, I should probably complete the goals I wrote down in September.

So for June goals:

  1. Blog at least 2 times a week. Yup you read that right. I really do have tons to share with y’all. I just need to write it. One tool that is really going to assist me with reaching this goal is EVERNOTE!! More on this soon.
  2. Complete the #GoIndependent Course. So if you haven’t already you need to check out the site Regina has a WEALTH of knowledge on her site and launched her #GoIndependent course in August for FREE. Yup you heard that right. Everyday there was a new lesson and she has worksheets and video blogs for the course… it’s alot. Just good ole, dig down in your business, find your core, stop making excuses and kick some ass good. So I really need to get this completed. I have had the course almost a year and have yet to complete it. It is about time that I do so.
  3. Get a handle on receipts. So I save my receipts, but then somehow they become a jumbled mess and then end up in paper heaven. So yeah!!
  4. Streamline with Systems Course – I will be re-taking the Streamline with Systems Course with Heather Crabtree. The course was really good for getting my planning client workflow in order. There is still some tweeking that needs to be done, but much better than where it was. It’s some other portions of my business that I need to get streamlined now. I also need to complete my company guidebook!

Only 4 goals for this month. But June is still busy, Brian and I will also be moving into our home AND it’s my birthday month, so there will be some celebrating in between all of this goodness. What are you goals for June?
