First, let’s take a look back at my November goals. Income goals were $3000 for John and $1800 for me but before I get into what we hit, I’m going to recap our other goals.
October is going to be hard to beat. We surpassed our income goals by $1,578 and if I’m being honest, I don’t think we’re going to be able to do that again (though I sure hope we can!). November is the start of the holiday season and typically people would much rather spend their excess money on shopping, traveling and dining than they would on a home repair or remodel. We will continue to do everything in our power to bring in business, though, and try our hardest to beat our goals!
I took a look back at my October goals and was pleasantly surprised. I’m normally really good at setting goals, but actually meeting them is a whole different story. So, let’s recap our income from last month…
John’s September Income: $435
Sarah’s September Income: $1450
Keep in mind we had just moved and John was technically unemployed as he was getting his business underway. October was his first full month being self-employed. Here’s what happened…
I would say one of the biggest challenges my husband and I used to have was keeping our financial goals. We were GREAT at setting them, but not so great at keeping them or even remembering what they were. Setting goals is important in life, but if you don’t keep them, there’s really no point in even setting them.
Now, we’re pretty good at keeping all of our goals. Wanna know our secret?
