Freelance Advice From the Blogosphere, Goal Setting Edition


Holy moly.  (Does anyone know how to spell “moly?”)  It must be December, because everyone is talking about goals!  I have to admit, I’ll probably sit down and write a goal post (ha, ha – “goal post”) here in the near future.  In the meantime, check out what these freelancers have to say about setting their own goals: 

  • I like Michele’s “My Top Ten Goals for 2008” because while none of them are easy, they are all do-able with enough hard work and persistence.

  • Allena gives her suggestions for how to go about setting your goals at Writers Unbound.

  • Anne at The Golden Pencil invites everyone to share their goals for 2008.

  • Ah, the never-ending how-do-I-set-my-freelance-rates question never really dies, does it?  Christine over at Self Made Chick has some suggestions in “How to Get What You’re Worth.”  (She mentions goal setting in this post, too!)

  • When Ritu from Freelance Folder answers the question “How Do You Put Your Ideas Into Action?” his very first suggestion is – you guessed it – to set goals.  (If there’s anyone who reads Freelance Parent that hasn’t subscribed to Freelance Folder yet, then get your booty over there and do so.  There is always something incredibly useful being posted over there!)

  • Oh, and don’t forget that Tamara and I shared some of our initial goals from our business plan.  I have to admit, though, that a few of these are probably going to be revamped.

There’s a good chance that if you’re setting your 2008 goals, you’ll be writing down something about how to get more business in the upcoming year.  Here are a few freelancers with ideas you can try:

    I believe they are spelled “holey moley.” But I’m from the old school so it might have changed.

    Thanks for the link love! Oh, I love goals! They’re so inspiring to dream up and fun to try to make happen. Sure, there are the slow times, the dead times, the times when you just want to pull your hair out but when you get to check off an accomplished goal… Ah, there’s just nothing like it!

    Here’s to a very successful 2008 :-)

    Hi Lorna Doone!

    What a great collection of links. I even discovered a new blog (Self Made Chick).

    I stumbled this so it will find a wider audience.
