What Are Your Goals For 2008?

I celebrated my Christmas today with the wifey, 2 sons and her two brothers today. I caught myself spacing out this afternoon during the Patriots game and started thinking about what I wanted to accomplish this coming year of 2008.

First I would like to consistently update my blog and keeping the discussion forum in forward progress. This has become my #1 priority and rightfully so. So far there have been a great group of people joining up and starting some great discussions. That’s really what it’s all about, people helping people. I will be putting a lot of dedication into it the next year and would love to see some exponential growth.

Second, I would love to hurry up and get a hold of my CPA and begin the necessary documentation to get incorporated. I am already an equal manager in Dynamic Media (a corporation in Orlando, Florida) with a few partners, but I have a lot of checks coming to me in my name, and quite simply I am going to get destroyed on taxes. I been saving up, but the amount I am estimated to pay in could have bought me a new house this year. I am on the road to quickly get myself some more education in taxes, my company and investments. I put it off this year, because quite frankly, I never planned on earning this much, or half of what I made to be truthful.

Third, I am always a sucker for trying out new things. Although, I think I spend way too much money to determine results. Knowing I got capital, I tend to swing it around a little too hard. I am trying to get myself to start taking a little bit of a smarter approach on how I research niches, test and track them and then ultimately, implement whatever idea I decide to market in the niche with.

Not really too many goals from a business standpoint. I am always on the lookout for new markets, but with the success of this last year, I think the first things to do would be to brushen up what I have already accomplished and start to approach it in a more detailed manner.

So what are your goals for 2008? Personal or business, let’s hear them!

I am working on a site for the Beijing Olympics which I am hoping will be big this year. From there I want to continue developing a couple of forums I started this year.


December 24, 2007

Hey that sounds great Mike. The Olympics should bring you a pretty good crowd I would imagine.

I am also in the process of developing 6, (yes 6) forums onto existing blogs that have done pretty good for me. Forums give people something to keep wanting to come back to. Integral part of my overall business goals this year.

To Your Success!

My goal for 2007 is get my act together with taxes. I made way too much money then i would of thought and didnt pay much attention to it.

Also I’m terrible with money. I make 50K, I spent 55K. So 2008 I will get a budget together, and organization is another 2008 goal.

Also I plan on working harder then this 2 hours i spend per day.

Later,
Marco

My plan is to stay focused and only try to tackle one or two projects at a time.
I not only need to make money for my own debts but so I can help someone else who really needs my support. I need to keep them in my thoughts as to the why I have chosen to work online. This person is the reason I need to make working on the Internet a success in 2008.
I am making a goals list for 2008 and breaking it down into steps to achieve them.

ok, well, this year was more of a rollercoaster for me and it was a pretty turbulent one. the lessons learned this year have been very bittersweet but I know that they will translate into much more success in ’08.

Since we always need to be heald accountable for what we shoot for, here are a few of my goals for this next year:

– I will break the century mark this year

– I will start to learn how to code

– I will be more organized and detailed with my projects.

’07 started off great then hit a rough patch but will now end in a serious upswing and you had a big part in this. thanks for the help man. Im gonna hit ’08 like a train of angry donkeys straight out of hell.


December 26, 2007

Yeah, it’s time to plan for what we want to achieve in 2008.

For me, plan will make it pretty simple.

For Business: Running my blogging workshop/seminar into bigger scale this year and look forward to organise internet marketing seminar for the first time. There are many demands in the region I stay. Of course, I am still interest to build an automated online income. I will be targeting on CPA stuffs.

For Personal: I look forward to expect my first child next year. After so many years of honeymoon after married, it’s time to seriously settle down on the family.

Hopefully I can able to cope with these 2 business as well as personal goals. Of course not to forget, spend sometime to participate in your forum as I can see there are many good stuffs to learn from there.

God Bless You,
Steven Wong

@Ruck @Kris
Will be interesting to see Ruck do a guest post as a followup to his 2008 list of goals.

Maybe even list out his 2009 ones as a source of inspiration to the readers too.
