It is always important to set goals. Not only for your business, but for yourself, you health, your family, your future. The question is ..How do you set business goals that actually work for you as an entrepreneur? Mompreneur? Solo-preneur? Service Professional?
Did you know that more than 80 percent of the 300 small business owners surveyed in the recent 4th Annual Staples National Small Business Survey said that they don’t keep track of their business goals? 77 percent have yet to achieve their vision for their company. Do you fall into any one of those categories?
Are you willing to do what it takes to make your goals come true? What is your long term goal, or target for your business?
The answer is truly simply and universal. They must be SMART goals.

Measurable- Put your money where your goal is..make this a dollar value
Action- Oriented- Who is doing what and when
