    2015 is just a few days away! What is your New Year's resolution going to be for IM? Not just "make more money"- but a real goal?

    My goal is to better focus my efforts. I've struggled this past year with choosing my best idea and focusing on it. I found that I was easily distracted with my projects and would quickly divert to a new idea rather than staying focused on a single project. I had a great 2014, but this year my main resolution is to pick my best idea and run with it. Not to the point of just having a monetized site, but something that I want to turn into a full fledged business.

    What are your goals? Set your goals now and ACT on them!

    I have stuck to my new years resolution that I made 20 odd years ago, and that was to never make new years resolutions.

    Scale, This year was based around trying out various different methods, SEO, Social Media, Social Bookmarking, Video Marketing, Article marketing, list building and paid traffic.

    Now I have a better understanding of them all and I have settled on my monotization method this month I plan to scale as quickly as possible next year.

    My goal is to refocus on my latest project and not get sidetracked by new, fleeting ideas. This shouldn't be too hard because my current project can incorporate most ideas I could come up with, and because I have a partner (whom I know personally, not just from online) that wants to work together with me.

    Along the same token, I'm also resolving to take better advantage of social media, both for my IM purposes and for real life networking, etc. It's essentially free advertising if you play it right, so it's well worth the effort.

    A New Year's resolution is something that goes in one year and out the other. :)

    2014 was mainly reading(big scale) and testing on a small scale.

    2015 will be:

    Graduating from university

    Reading less

    And of course more testing....

    Seeing a doctor on a regular basis and taking better care of my health. Ive not been too great mentally since i had to give up my job (which i loved).

    This relates to IM because i have been struggling with many serious journeys due to mental health, easily confused, frustrated etc.

    New years resolutions are useless for the most part, since if you were serious about it then you would of been doing it before some night of making up commitments came along.

    The only thing I have for new years is to date again, haven't tried or cared to try in the past year or two.... Feel as if I'm ready for someone in my life again.

    For me it's to master the Facebook ads platform and also to change the way I think as a marketer so I can stop being held back all the time and not work with my full potential.
