Welcome, everyone, to a New Year and a New (yet old!) Challenge!
The "One Goal a Week" Challenge has been running for nearly 18 months now, and has proved very successful for SBIers wanting to move their business forward by committing to just one goal a week (more if you want to, but that's entirely your choice!).
For those who are new to the Challenge, here are the basics:
The Challenge is to complete just one piece of work each week which will take your business forward in some way. What that piece of work is, is entirely your decision.
It might be writing a new article, or it could equally profitably be improving an old one. It might be writing a newsletter, or it could be replacing out of date or poor images. For some, in the 2016 and 2017 Challenges, it was about learning a new skill - setting up a Pinterest account, for example, or learning how to write an ebook.
The important thing is that it takes your business forward in some way.
Here's how it works practically:
** On a Sunday, I put a post up on this thread asking who's in, and what your goal is for the week's Challenge.
** You post on the thread saying exactly what your pledge for the week is. This is important -- making a visible commitment to the group is more likely to mean you meet your goal. No vague promises here - be specific!
** The following Sunday, I put another post up asking how everyone has done. Whoever has participated reports back, again being specific and where possible with a link to the page, Pinterest account or whatever.
** I also ask what your goals are for the following week. So, as well as reporting back on your achievements, you tell us what your next goal is. Simples!
** This one is important: at designated intervals, we have a virtual Prosecco party to celebrate all we've achieved.
There's really only one, and it's one that will be familiar to everyone:
"Help, and be helped."
In the 2017 Challenge there were dozens -- and I mean dozens -- of pieces of great business-building advice shared between Challenge members. The Challenge became an amazing gathering of collective experience, skills and knowledge.
And it became a caring group, too. Sometimes, building our online businesses has to be put on hold. Life happens. And when it does, this group will be here for each other. No need for a life story -- but if you're in need of some support from like-minded people, you'll find it here.
But mainly, we're business-focused. You don't have to participate in the "in-between" posts if you don't have the time.
So -- a big "Welcome!" to all our new members -- please do feel free to introduce yourselves to the group. And a big "Welcome back!" to the "oldies"!
Now -- let's get going! We're a little late this week due to the New Year celebrations! But...
New Year, New Goals!
So -- who's in this week?? Let's make it a real, huge bumper year for all SBIers!
