IT’S NEARLY 2016, HAVE YOU SET YOUR ENTREPRENEURIAL END GOAL?
DOES YOUR NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTION INCLUDE STARTING A SMALL BUSINESS?
The year-end signals the time for holiday celebrations, shopping, good tidings, and yes, New Year’s resolutions. You’ve likely made a whole slew of resolutions by now – to eat healthier, save more money, exercise more and otherwise make plans for 2016 to be an even better year than your last. But New Year’s resolutions shouldn’t be limited to your personal life – apply it to your work life and you’ll see benefits to your personal life too.
If you have been dreaming of work that doesn’t make you feel like a Grinch, resolve to establish an end goal for your work life and figure out exactly how you’ll get there. Goal setting gives you long-term vision and short-term motivation.
For many people, visions of working from home or owning an at-home business begin to dance in their head as a new work year looms. To jumpstart your path to a new work life in 2016, here are a few tips to building your new work life resolution:
- Take a look back. Think about this past year at your job, were you generally happy or stressed? Did your schedule work for you? Did you struggle balancing work and home life? When you think about your job, what aspects of it did you truly enjoy?
- Identify what you want to accomplish. Goal-setting provides you focus and helps you organize your time and resources. By setting specific, well-defined goals, you can measure and take pride in the achievement of those goals.
- Leverage goal-setting tools. The internet has ushered in many benefits, including several solutions to help you keep motivated, on track and working towards your goals. Try www.dreaminder.com, a free tool that helps you write down your dream and set the date when you want to be reminded of it. Another great resource is www.mystrategicplan.com, a website that can help take your plans to the next level by creating a strategy and keeping it moving in the right direction.

ENTREPRENEURIAL END GOAL: BUSINESS OWNERSHIP
If you’ve considered starting your own business but the idea seemed complicated or terrifying, remember that not all start-ups are the same. Owning a business doesn’t have to mean searching for venture capital funding, or spending 70 hours a week trying to get your company off the ground – on the contrary, these are the minority.
