When you're an emerging solo-entrepreneur achieving goals in a reasonable time can be challenging. A great goal might be creating sustainable income so you can add to your team and plan out the year well in advance. Goals are something I’ve struggled but, working for myself has helped me get better at it. Having multiple goals at once leads to stagnation. For many entrepreneurs, the biggest challenge is choosing one goal at a time and persevering without getting sidetracked. Sound familiar?
Goals become stagnant when our structure to achieve them isn't clear or if they don't align on a soul level. As the 'boss' of your business, it's imperative you create systems and structures to align with your business values and intentions.
Doing business your way is not something to take lightly. If you want to make money, there has to be some structure and the ‘your way’ part is where you get creative license to define what that structure is.
No matter what your unique structure is, it will have to have specific components from a practical business standpoint otherwise, you’ll find yourself all over the map and likely struggling just to keep yourself afloat and stay positive in the game.

No one is Born a marketing genius, stand-alone artist, Master Chef, etc., Achieving great things in life requires effort, practice, patience and perseverance.
When building a business we do a lot of things based on the advice of others. Because, someone we think we can trust, told us. Because we learned it in an online marketing program from an “influencer” and bought into the fear if we didn't do it a certain way—THEIR way, we would fail!
Hopefully after you’ve chased the work of experts a few years, you’ve learned not all “experts” give advice that fits YOU!
Of course, there’s certain aspects & factors of marketing we must consider & practice in our planning, strategy and execution - HOWEVER, have you noticed even “influencers” don’t guarantee results?
