Setting Goals

For the longest time, I’ve been setting goals and never achieving them. I’ve struggled for a long time with having the proper motivation to actually get things done. It doesn’t matter what it is… weight loss, writing a book, going to school, etc.

Recently, I was working on setting goals. A goal that could launch me into a better place in my life. I’m launching my 1st E-book on or around April 15th on Kindle Direct Publishing. I promise I’ll post a link to the book, so if anyone is interested that they can purchase it. I’m also going to promote it on Pinterest, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Setting goals that have any chance of getting completed by me are normally worthless goals. But this goal is something I’ve wanted to do for a long time. It’s finally done and I’m just making sure all my ducks are in a row, in order for me to launch the book.

I’m going to be setting a new goal for this book. I want to earn $100 (after Kindle takes their cut) as my first goal. So how much is the book going to be? $2.99! I only have to sell 48 e-books in order to reach my goal of $100. Why am I setting goals for my sales? Well because I would like┬áto start earning an income with book sales. I have to give myself a goal in order to really push myself to promote the book. Plus, it’s good to know how many books you need to sell in order to reach a specific amount of money. I personally want to use this money earned to pay off the rest of our credit card bills, student loans, and the mortgage we’re about to get ourselves into.

Yes, I have high goals for paying off our debts. We’re obviously going to be putting money into our kids college funds. We still have about 6-7 years before our oldest goes to college. So we still have time to build up a large college fund. Once our credit cards bills and my student loans are paid off, we can dedicate all that money we were spending to our kids savings accounts. See we have extremely high goals. We’re going to reach them, all because we are responsible with our money.

I already have my 2nd book in the works. I just need to finally get my butt in gear and take the photos that need to go inside the book. All of my e-books will be priced accordingly, yet still be affordable. So between $2.99 and $9.99. This will allow me to earn decent money as long as my books are selling. Again, I will have to promote my books online. So we’ll have to see how well that goes. I know I’m not guaranteed to make any money, but I’m hoping that all my hard work, promoting and such will work itself out and allow me to reach my goal.

If you’ve got a goal that you’d like to achieve, then stop waiting and start working towards whatever your goal is. No matter how big or small, achieving your goals should be important and you shouldn’t let anyone hold you back.

Make sure you keep an eye out for the post with a link to my book.
I’m really excited about finally reaching this goal.
