Every year around this time I set my goals. For the most part, I met most of my past goals. When I was freelancing more my goal each year was to earn $10,000 more than the year before. I’m happy to say this is a goal I always met. This year my situation has changed and therefore my goals have changed. As you know, I have a full time telecommuting gig and freelance a bit less. So do I still have writing goals?
In 2009 I’m going to be concentrating less on freelancing goals and more on personal goals. I’m exploring more residual forms of income, for instance, ebooks. I have one I’ve been working on each night and I hope will be done before the end of the year. I also have ideas for several more ebooks. I’m also continuing to work on FWJ and this freelance writing community. I hope I’m on the right track. Because I have a day job it’s a slow process but to me that makes it more enjoyable.
I’d also like to take on more speaking, guest blogging and other opportunities where I can share what I know with other people. My friend David Peralty and I have an idea we feel is a great one, and hopefully we’ll bring that to fruition in 2009.
Professionally, I will continue to do the best job I can. I have the greatest job in the world and it’s a pleasure to give it my all.
As always, my biggest goal is to spend quality time with my family who will always come first. I hope to be the best possible example to my son and best friend I can be to my husband.
So share….what are your goals for 2009?
