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, did it again! Plus, many of the articles received a record amount of comments! I’m glad that you all liked the content. 🙂
2) Develop a “Resources” Page – Done. It’s called, Start Your Own Blog.
3) Write the eBook – There wasn’t a ton of work that got done on the eBook this week (I have a reason why – details are coming in tomorrow’s post!), but I am pretty deep into Chapter 4 and will most definitely get it done this weekend. If I really push hard today, I think I get get through most of Chapter 5 as well! I’ll let you know how it’s going next week. By the way, would you like a sneak peak at one of the chapter? (This section is colored red because I’m in danger of missing my target goal)
If you’ve been following my blog this week, you’ve noticed that I announced one of my big projects! The site is called Online Money Bloggers, and it’s all about bloggers trying to take their site to the next level, and posting about how they plan to do so! It’s a great motivator for those that are involved in the site’s 30k Challenge, but it’s also a great resource for those that want to read blog posts about how to make money online! It really should be a big hit (actually, it already is, and it didn’t even officially launch yet)!
I do have a couple more projects up my sleeve. But I think that I’m going to keep those a secret for now! 😉
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.
