How Writing Down your Goals Helps your Future Business
Four years ago, I wrote down where I wanted to be in five years. Here's a little snippet from the six page entry:
"I hope to be in a place where I am able to choose which clients I want to work with. I hope to be in a place where my clients trust me to execute their vision and give me creative freedom to do so. I hope to be in a place where I only have to do a handful of weddings a year and still exceed my sales goal. I hope to be in a place where I can blend my love of travel with my work."
This year, we received dozens of inquiries from brides. We were blessed to be able to choose four that we wanted to work with. We are able to say no to all other weddings (which means weekends with my family!) because we will exceed our sales goal with those four weddings.
There is something about writing down what you want, waking up every single day and believing you deserve those things, then working hard preparing yourself for those things to happen.
