Do you set goals for yourself on a regular basis?
As many of you know, I enjoy setting goals for myself quite regularly and I actually share them with my readers as well! It’s pretty risky because occasionally, I have proven myself a failure, but at other times, the goals were met and I felt like I was on top of the world! Either way, the site improves and my readers have a great time coming along for the ride.
So, let’s check out what goals I set for myself by the end of this year, 2011.
Goals For The Rest of This Year, Through December 2011
I have set three major goals for myself and have them listed below. Take a look at my progress.
1) Continue to Write 3-4 Posts Per Week – Yep, I nailed it again. I actually had 5 posts this past week because of my Saturday Income Report!
2) Develop a “Resources” Page – Done. It’s called, Start Your Own Blog.
3) Write the eBook – Last week I was about half way through chapter 3 and this week I’m happy to say that Chapter 3 is finished! I’m now about a quarter of the way through chapter 4 and have 1 more chapter to go after that. I’m really getting close!
My new projects are still under way, but are actually coming together quite quickly! I can probably let you know about one of them by next week (I think I may have said this last time, but I can for sure let you in on them by January 1, I know that for a fact)! Stay tuned! 🙂
Here are the articles I enjoyed this week. I hope you enjoy them too!

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.
