Do you have goals and dreams for your future? Do you have them written down? Every week, I remind myself of my goals for the month to make sure that I’m on track for hitting them. Sometimes I’m way behind the eight ball, and other times I really feel like I have a good handle on them. Either way though, my site improves and my readers have a better experience from the improvements.
Goals For March, 2012
February was an amazing month, but now it’s March and it’s time to re-focus! This site could always use a few more eyeballs every week, and in order to accomplish that, we need to create bigger and better goals! Let’s see what I punished myself with this month. 😉
- 900 Subscribers – Last month, I missed my goal of 800 subscribers, but I decided to raise the bar anyway! This month, I want to see my subscriber counter reach 900! So far, I’m at 761 subscribers and have quite a ways to go. Any ideas how I can make this leap in the next 20 days?
- Earn $1,500 with this site– Compared to last month, March is starting out pretty slow. I still expect this site to earn at least $1,000, but I might need to reach out to those suppliers a bit in order to make $1,500 happen. We’ll keep our eyes on this number in the next couple of weeks.
- Finish the SEO Structure of CAPI – I acually restructured my site, http://www.creatingapassiveincome.com, the day after I made this goal! It’s now set up for optimal SEO, and I can’t wait to see what it does to my keyword search results! Consider this one done! 🙂
- Make Another $1,200 Payment on the Mortgage – Between my wife and I, we actually get an “extra” paycheck this month (we get paid by-weekly, and every couple of months, one of us gets paid 3 times in the month instead of just 2), so this extra payment really shouldn’t be an issue. Can’t wait to see those mortgage numbers drop again! 🙂

My name is Derek, and I have my Bachelors Degree in Finance from Grand Valley State University. After graduation, I was not able to find a job that fully utilized my degree, but I still had a passion for Finance! So, I decided to focus my passion in the stock market. I studied Cash Flows, Balance Sheets, and Income Statements, put some money into the market and saw a good return on my investment. As satisfying as this was, I still felt that something was missing. I have a passion for Finance, but I also have a passion for people. If you have a willingness to learn, I will continue to teach.
