This Monday, Andrew wanted to talk about goal-setting, and what he teaches his #DreamBusiness entrepreneurs on Day 1 of the program!
What Andrew does is break down his goals into what sort of categories of the business they fall under. From this, it's super easy to figure out how to plot them into your 90-day plan and, how they're interconnected. Meaning, what do you need to do in the first 30 days, in order to achieve what you want to do in 60 days which allows you get to those bigger 90 day goals!
How he breaks down the goals of his business is into these five categories:
-Customer Discovery: Figuring out who it is that your business will interact with
-Product/Service Development: Figuring out how your company will make money and what it will sell
-Partnerships: Who you need on your side to help push your business forward
-Marketing: Figuring out how you're going to get your product or service to your customers
-Finances: What sort of financial help you need in order to achieve your goals
Figuring out how your goals fall into these categories allows you to reflect on THREE main objectives you would like to achieve in those 90 days! Or, take a page out of Andrew's book (pun intended) and get yourself a Best-Self Journal (the guy can't stop raving about it). There are kinds of tools out there for you to visualize your goals and get working at them!
We'd also like to shoutout another one of our #DreamBusiness graduates, Sober Island Brewing Co. they're trying to expand their business' product line and they need your help!
