Just over half way through the year I felt it a good idea to evaluate my goals for 2013. Some are on pace, and some not.
AdvoCare 3 Star Gold. AdvoCare is really allowing me to pursue other interests that I won’t necessarily get paid for this year. For example, the app we are working on. I have on my goals list to pin 3 Star Gold ($40,000 per year) and 6 Star Ruby ($80,000 per year) – that is helping A LOT of people! I am starting to see the formation of 3 Star Gold. And with 6 total teammates coming with me to success school at Cowboy Stadium in August, there will be a huge boost towards it.
Purchase of two income producing real-estate properties. After looking at hundreds of properties, we are set to close on a four unit apartment complex on August 30th. The second property, which we have an accepted offer on, might be a stretch. It is an 11 unit complex right outside of Madison, WI, with a supposed closing date of September 26th. I am currently trying to form a group of investors to finish this baby off!!!
Read 2 books per month. I have, so far, read only one book per month through June. However, with a huge travel schedule coming up, I should hit 24 books by the end of the year.
Run a 5 minute mile. I have not been running long distance very often (maybe every other week) the fastest I have run so far is 5:42. Still along ways off! I will be going to the track and I will get below at least 5:30 in August or September on a humid, 100 degree day. (Some Like It Hot…while working out). Much pun intended.
Bench 225 thirty times. Okay, so my fitness goals might seem silly 😛 , but they are things I’ve always wanted to do. The closest I have come to this is 26. I’ll attempt a couple more times this year.
I have obtained my real-estate sales license.
Create an income producing app. This is in the works. We started development in early March and have made huge strides. We have begun testing the app and will have another group testing soon. We have also been approached by a group in Silicon Valley who want us to contribute on an app concept they have come up with. I don’t know that our app will be income producing by the end of 2013, we will see…
I have visited Shannon in Mexico City. Twice. Hopefully a third at the end of August!? 🙂
Not only did I attend a Michael Zumchak excel class in New York City, but he found the blog that I wrote, promoting him and his class. He has since been working with me on many of my excel tools to make them more time efficient and effective. GREAT GUY, & ABSOLUTE GENIUS!
In August I will have attended both AdvoCare Success Schools for the 2013 calendar year. I will fall short of the 15 total team members in attendance, as the first one there were three of us and this second one is looking like six or seven. Still not bad!
10 speaking engagements with greater than 20 people. I have so far spoken in four of these events. Two events were at high schools where there were 60 and 25 in attendance. I also spoke at my Alma mater, University of Dubuque, to a business organization about my early entrepreneurial experiences. My latest speech was at an event with 300+ people!
If I did not mention a goal it is because I have not started progress towards it yet; I guess you can only do so much and of course I am prioritizing. I have to get a majority of these done, I already have some huge plans for 2014 including travel, more AdvoCare, real estate and other business ventures. Maybe even a reality t.v. show… 😉
I hope you all have a vision for yourself. Go after huge goals. Have them written in a place that you see them at least two times a day along with your purpose for attaining them. The mirror in which you brush your teeth works best! GO GET IT!
