Cobblers Goals Workshop Round 1 Wrap Up

This week we met upstairs to jump start 2018 by setting some goals.  Rebecca Reimers Cristol lead the workshop (she'll lead next weeks too!)  

Here's a rough outline of what we covered:

First, what are three things that your business did well last year?

Next, Answer the following questions using a scale of 0-10, where 10 is 100% satisfied and 5 is satisfied 50% of the time and 0 is not satisfied at all.

What is your current stress level regarding your business?

What number would you like it to be?

What is the difference between those two numbers?

Remeber, this is all from your perspective, so if you feel like you're kicking ass, then you're kicking ass.  Likewise, if you feel like your ass is the one getting the kicking then its time to make some changes.

Using the same scale:

What is your work/life balance?

What number would you like it to be?

What is the difference between those two numbers?

Looking at the categories below, what do you want for 2018?

1. Income (increase, stay the same, get rid of debt, save for a big purchase, pay yourself more)

2. Systems

3. Customer care: how you take in clients, how you manage their accounts, how you manage money, client files, vendors, your desk or computer

3.Technology-what do you need to upgrade, discard, learn or buy that will help your efficiency?

4.Communication-within your business with co-workers, with clients, with the public (social media)

5.Time management—where do you waste time and what would you like?

If you like, now write down the necessary steps to achieve each goal.  Next week we will look at those steps, identify obstacles that might be in the way and come up with strategies to get around them.  Can't wait to see you then!
