How many goals did you make for your freelancing career this year and have you been sticking with them? I have been trying so hard to stay on track with mine, but with three small kiddos and an active social and family life, I often get derailed. That’s okay, though. I knew when I started my writing and internet marketing business, that my family was going to come first and that it would definitely take me longer to reach my goals.

Here is what I plan to achieve for 2013:

  • Finish my 2 eBooks that I have been working on over the past year
  • Add more PLR to my Private Label Rights site
  • Work diligently on building my subscriber’s lists for my various websites
  • Advertise my copywriting business locally through paid advertisements and fliers
  • Get this site, Freelancing Friends, beefed-up and full of great content and resources
  • Create more video logs (vlogs) for my personal sites
  • Focus more on writing for ME and not spending all of my available writing time creating content for others

So, how am I doing as far as achieving these goals? Well…not bad…so far! I am sure like a lot of you reading this, I get all focused and ready to conquer the new year with all of my goals and visions for success and then it slacks off by summer. This year, however, I vow to not let that happen!

It is definitely hard having three young children at home—especially in the summer—but, I feel as if I use them too much as an excuse to not get my work done and accomplish my goals.

How about you? I would love to hear some of the goals that you have set for yourself for 2013! Also, have you been sticking with them, so far? If not, what is holding you back?
