Everyone who owns a business needs goals to help them move forward, to get motivated, and to maintain the success of their business. Envisioning those goals is easy. Setting the right goals for you and your business is harder. Achieving those goals is even more difficult.

You’ll receive an easy-to-follow framework for defining concrete objectives, developing strategies to achieve them, and detailing the specific steps that you’ll need to take to reach the goals you set. Upon completing the course, you’ll have created a comprehensive plan for your immediate and long-term futures, with genuine confidence in your ability to get the right things done to take your creative business where you want it to be.
In this workshop you’ll:
- Understand why good goals are essential to the success of your business
- Learn about the four different kinds of goals for creative businesses.
- Identify goals for your business that matter to you.
