    Ok it's that time of the year again. The time of the year where many people set out to put resolution in place for the upcoming year. Some of the top resolutions are:


    • Lose Weight
    • Spend more time with the family
    • Quit smoking
    • Enjoy life more
    • Get out of debt
    • Make more money
    • Get organized


    Let's talk about the first one (Lose Weight). As someone makes this resolution they set some sub goals such as:


    • Eat less
    • Eat better
    • Exercise more

    This is usually the extent of the goals someone sets. They might set out with the right intentions but it usually lasts a few days of maybe even a few weeks and then they start to slip back into old habits. And low and behold the resolution is forgotten about and old habits slip back into place.

    If we look at someone wanting to make more money here is the problem, it's not the money that we actually want is it? I mean, think about it do you really want to take 1 million dollars in hundred dollar bills and throw it on the floor and swim around in it? (OK, MAYBEFOR JUST A LITTLE BIT) But it's not the money it's what the money can do for you, it what you want to do with it.

    If you have a resolution to make more money this year you need to make sure you have a series of steps in place to help you accomplish this resolution (GOAL). Don't just say you want more money, instead put a set of steps and sub steps in place to achieve these goals.

    Let's outline some things to do here:

    • Goal - Make More Money
      • How much do you want to make for the year?
      • Break it down into weekly and daily
      • What is the method you will use to make the money (Be laser focused)
    • Lay out BIG STEPS, what will you need to do to achieve your goal (30,000 foot view)
      • Get website in place
      • Keyword research
      • SEO
      • Create a product
      • Set up a marketing strategy
      • Set up an affiliate plan
    You get the point, do a brainstorming session without any thought for right or wrong, just put pen to paper. You can sort it out later and put it in a certain order.

    The next step is to take each of the "Big Steps" and break them down into small, bite sized chunks. Let's look at setting up a website as an example:


    • Set up a website
      • Do keyword research
      • Get a hosting account
      • Website creation (in house or farm out)
      • Site layout
      • Create site content
      • On page SEO
      • Etc...

    Lay out sub goals and sub, sub goals for each Big Goal you come up with. Then the most important part of all of this is to set a timeline to each of these steps. You need to set a:


    • Start date
    • Finish date
    • Track the goal
    • Include resources needed to complete
      • Money
      • Web designer
      • SEO expert

    Create a timeline (I use Excel) for all tasks. Use time management software for all deadlines.

    So the main goal here is not to tell you that doing something is hard because I think most people know it is. My intention is to help each and every one of you lay out a plan, an executable plan that has a chance to succeed.

    Many people here will set a goal to make more money in 2013, some will succeed, and many will fail. Some will see massive success, others will see mediocre success. Some will start strong; some will be a slow drip.

    Making money, I mean good money isn't easy, but it's not impossible. It takes work, hard work; it takes a plan, a really good plan.

    So here it is in one sentence:

    If you will do for two years what most people won't you'll be able to do for the rest of your life what most people cant!!!

    Good luck to you in 2013, I wish you and your family ALL the success in the world
    Happy New Year
