Pick a Number and Set an Income Goal

Hey you… legacy entrepreneur… Do you know the number one most important thing you can do to grow your business? I’ll give you a hint: It’s a number.


How much money do you want to make?

If you are a legacy entrepreneur, I have something important to tell you.

It’s something that will be the deciding factor for your success.

As business owners, we know that goal setting is important.

What’s more important is achieving those goals?

There is a proven strategy to setting and achieving goals.

I’ll let you in on a few of the details of that strategy here…

First, I recommend three goal categories for my clients:

  1. marketing
  2. income
  3. and inner work

The category I’d like to focus on here is your income goal.

Your income goal needs to be an actual number.

It needs to be realistic and achievable, but it also needs to challenge you.

Once you have that number established…

Write it down.

Keep it in your thoughts.

Imagine that number as big as you are.

Feel what it feels like to look at your bank statement and see that number.

See that deposit going into your account.

Having an actual dollar amount for your income goal is a powerful tool for keeping you focused. You will automatically pay more attention to your bank account. You will watch each deposit, calculating how much closer it got you to the goal.

The other trick to this goal setting strategy is that it keeps you motivated.

It gives you something concrete to strive for.

You may find yourself halfway through the month, but only a quarter of the way to meeting your goal. Having this number in your head will motivate you at that time to get creative.

It’s like playing a game with yourself.

You may need to call a client you’ve been avoiding, send out some emails, or take some other action you otherwise may not have taken, just so you can meet that goal.

Having a specific income goal is what makes the difference between successful and unsuccessful legacy entrepreneurs!
