Are your business intentions clear to you? Once again, by focussing on what’s right for you the energy to fulfill them is bound to find you.
One way to get started is to write yourself a letter from the future. Imagine yourself three years from now and write that letter describing what your business has achieved and what personal goals you have met.
Let your optimism shine through. Reinforce your confidence that you can succeed beyond today's success. But don’t deny worry; if you do, about what? Other goals and accomplishments will emerge as you think about your self.
Earning a living is an important motivation for just about everyone. So, setting your financial goals needs to be intentional.
Think positively about your worth as a professional designer. There is real value in the investments of time and money you put into becoming a designer and developing your expertise – including your education, professional credentials, and growing a network of clients. What are those worth? You deserve a reasonable rate of return – what in business is called a return on investment, or ROI.
Ask yourself: What am I worth? How much do I want to make in a year?
Think about what is achievable. What would it take to reach a higher financial goal?
Even if your financial goals seem unrealistic, don’t worry for now. It’s important to know your goals so you can identify strategies to help you achieve them. We will get in to that on this page very soon.
