Goal setting

So with the start of the new year I've been evaluating the things I want to accomplish. I know the best way to do this is through setting goals and writing stuff down.

Right now I currently have 2 hobbies...sewing and working out...yes, exercise. Both of these things have been something I've interested in for a long time and that I enjoy. I've been dabbling in both of these things for a couple years...but haven't taken either seriously as a business - they've both been a hobby.

So my goal is to turn both of these things which I truly enjoy into legitimate businesses over the next two years so that when its time for my youngest to go to kindergarten I will not have to go back to a 9 to 5 job. I want to be able to take my kids to school, pick them up, stay home with them if they get sick and not have to send them to daycare after school. With that said, I've invested in a Franklin Covey day planner and away we go. I have written down my yearly goals, and each month I have monthly goals/tasks to accomplish that will bring me closer to my ultimate goals.

This blog is specifically for my sewing "hobby", Its A Ten Specialty Creations. (I will be updating my fitness blog and getting my Beachbody coaching business going as well.)

So here are just two of my goals for Its a TEN...

List items on etsy (relist or add new) at least 5 times per week
Every month, add a brand new product to etsy shop

So in January I added these to my shop...Table Saver Reversible CoastersStay tuned for more...


  1. If you'd like a tool for setting your goals, you can use this web application:

    You can use it to manage your goals, projects and tasks, set next actions and contexts, use checklists, schedules and a calendar.
    A Vision Wall (inspiring images attached to yor goals) is available too.
    Works also on mobile.
