The Write Way to Set Goals

In this podcast episode, Tania speaks about why writing down your goals is an activity you should make time for if you want to increase your chances of business success.

Show Notes


Goal setting is a well-known best practice for business owners, especially at the beginning of a new year or project, but many first-time entrepreneurs fail to have specific written goals for their business for the short, medium and longer-term.


If you want to increase your chances of business success, writing down your goals is an activity you should make time for.


"Are you clear on what the goals for your business are for the next 30 days, 60 days, 90 days, 6 months and year?

Research shows you're more likely to succeed if you take the time to create strategic written down goals for your business for the year."
