Have you set your Goals?

Everyone is talking about New Years Resolutions. Have many did you make this year? How many have you broken already? For most people they have already broken the majority of them. That's what resolutions are for. 
A Goal is something you want to achieve. A short term goal is something like losing ten pounds, reading the next best seller.
Long term goals are making a business change, changing the way you handle something, improving the way you do business. the example of a long term  personal goal may be to  purchase a house or get along with your mother in law
To get started you must set up the three "W's"

!. What is you goal? To get along with my mother in law.
2. When will you accomplish it?  January 13,2012
3. I will complete the research needed on how to complete this goal.

the three "W's" simply state your determination to accomplish the goal. Determination is your main factor. 

Choosing what the goal is to set is a different thing. 
Your goals should be:
If you set an impossible goal, you've lost before you have begun.
Knowing your own strengths, weakness, shortcomings, and taking them into account is vital before choosing a goal.

Is it realistic to think you can learn to get along with your mother in law? Sure if I change my attitude maybe she will change hers.

Flexible. Things go wrong things get off schedule, do not be ready to give up at the first failure. Change your course and try again.

Okay, so I didn't know she was allergic to Roses. Next time I will make sure  I will send her lilies. Now I will send her a Apology card and neosporin.

Measurable. You have to be able to measure your progress in attaining your goal.It is especially important to notice when you have accomplished your goal and need not go any father in your pursuit. If you fail to measure your progress 
any further action is misdirected an a waste of time. 

She smiled at me and we chatted last week, there wasn't any tension. I guess I have accomplished my Goal.

Within your control. You are in control of the failure or success of reaching your goal. Keep your eye on the end, be flexible about the terms (should she come after you with a pickax, you might choose another goal and let this one slide,) but you have to be aware of the progress of the goal by measuring it.

Guest Blogger and WAHM Sheri Carpenter

Sheri is the most inspirational person I have met  long time. As she pushes forward her own businesses, While helping others get theirs rolling. She always has time for you, and greets you with a smile. That being said; you learn a lot from Sheri from the very fact she has built her business up through perseverance and determination. You are invited and encourage to visist her sites and get to know her better. She will great greet with a cup of coffee and biscuits from her own company.

Meet Sheri

My name is Sheri and I am a married mother of 3 who lives in TN. I currently work part time outside the home while building my business so that I can provide a better life for my family.

I got into Direct Sales about 2 years ago after losing my job when the economy took a turn for the worst. I started with AVON and eventually moved on to other things that work better for me. I am now an Independent Consultant with Scentsy Wickless Candles (

I remember when I first started promoting my business online I made alot of mistakes. It was a trial and error type deal. I took some much needed advice and started working really hard at social networking. I remember thinking that it was going to be really easy to sell AVON because everyone knew about them and those that had been with the company for years made it sound so easy. I soon found out that even though it is a well known company it was still MY business and it took work. 

After moving on to another company that was better suited to me and something that I really had a passion for I learned a few more things. Passion is one of the keys to success. You have got to really like what you do and be passionate about the product if you are going to be successful in your business. This comes with any business. If you don't like it chances are you are not going to succeed. No one wants to talk about something they don't like and people can tell (even on the internet) when you are passionate and when you are not.

I learned that no matter what business you are in it takes work. Just like with a regular job where you receive a paycheck, you have to go to work for your business to be successful. I mean think about it you wouldn't get a paycheck from a large employer if you weren't showing up to work right? If you are not willing to work your business then there is another reason you won't be successful.

I have also learned that in order to be successful you need to build relationships. You need to build some sort of relationship with everyone you come in contact with. One mistake I made early on was pushing my sales pitch right off the bat. Well that just doesn't work. Especially when doing business online. People want to get to know the person behind the product and know that they can trust you before they will do business with you. This is where social networking comes in. Get to know people, build relationships, get to know about them and what they do before you start pitching your business to them. Take time out to find out who they are, what they like, and what they are looking for. Don't stop there though, keep that relationship going. Don't think that you have done all you needed to do and the rest of the time you can just send them an ad and all will be well. That is not the case. You need to keep a non business relationship with them so they understand that you are not only concerned with how much money they will spend with you.

I also learned that blogging is a vital part of doing business online. Blogging is your way of interacting with your customers, recruits and potential customers and recruits without having to send out an email everyday. You can blog about monthly or weekly specials and keep everyone up to date. You can blog about the business opportunity and how it works. This is a great way to go into detail about products and things that they will not find on your website.

One important thing to remember is that nothing happens overnight. There is not a business person in this world that became successful in 24 hours. They have all had to work for what they have an where they are. It takes hard work and determination. Don't give up even when you feel like there is no other option. The more you keep at it the better it gets. It may take months or even a year or so of talking to someone before they actually make a purchase from you or join your team. Just keep at it and don't let anyone or anything stand in the way of YOU achieving YOUR goals. Know your why and repeat it to yourself often and you will surely succeed

I have come a long way over the last 2 years due to alot of hard work. I now run 3 blogs, Miracle Momas (, One Busy Moma (, and Bailey's Bargain Bin ( I have dedicated myself to helping others succeed and have become a writer for writing about the home based business industry. I am also now doing well in my Scentsy Business and doing product reviews and giveaways on my blogs. I have worked very hard blogging and I get great exposure. I have organized local events, done printed newsletters and currently doing a holiday gift guide. This is a long way from where I was 2 years ago when I couldn't even write a paragraph about anything. 

So remember to keep it up and always remember that you are not alone and you don't have to do it alone. Be sure of who you are working with, get to know others and most important don't let anything stop you if you truly want success.

"If I stand alone I will fail, but, if we all stand together we can achieve anything"

The ultimate traffic solution

Their program totally rocks, because anybody can
build a huge network of potential customers
extremely fast, at absolutely NO $$ for traffic.
This really IS the solution—especially if you’ve
been agonizing over how to build your business,
how to attract the most perfect clients for your
product or service, and how to do it without
draining your bank account for expensive paid
If you’ve seen the stuff Robert and Ian have been giving away,
you should already be chomping at the bit to get
their entire strategy as quickly as possible.
[This Really IS The Solution!]
Seriously, they’ve attracted the attention of an
army of super guru’s who have begged, pleaded,
and practically arm-wrestled them into teaching
their entire teams.
Why? Because this is so incredibly powerful,
and it works like a banshee.
Now with a lot of launches you’d be hearing
they are only going to sell a certain amount of
product. But this is different.

The real urgency here is Facebook’s dynamic—because
right now there is unprecedented access to anyone
you’d like to get close to with your business.
That means right now you can leverage the heck out of your
presence on Facebook. No holds barred but you MUST go about
this the right way or risk being banned, shunned, and shut out.
And eventually, just like paid search was once a dime a
pop and then rocketed to dollars a hit—the same thing could
happen with this. It’s not a stretch to think in the not so
distant future, you just won’t have this kind of access anymore.
That’s why I highly recommend you take advantage of this, and
be on the front lines of the early adopters. I believe
you will be VERY glad you did.

See you there!

P.S. Robert built his personal network to somewhere in the
realm of 300,000 people in just one year, starting
from scratch as a complete newbie. Do you
have any idea how incredibly fast that is? I know
plenty of marketers who have been trying to do
this for a decade and STILL don’t have these kinds
of numbers! Be smart. Get this and DO it.
