I am usually not one to set New Year’s Resolutions but since I am working on my own businesses this year I want to start 2014 off right with some solid and attainable goals for the whole year.
This is my plan of action for 2014.
Single Moms Income
Over the last year I’ve tried to post on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and sometimes even Saturdays. You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting so much lately but there is a reason behind that.
I’ve decided forcing myself to post three times per week even when I don’t have anything great to write about is flat out dumb. I’ve never been the type of person that talks just to hear the sound of my own voice so why should my personal blog be like that?
This is my personal blog. This is not just some niche blog where I can write down a list of 50 blog post topics and get to work. By now this blog has more than 200 articles on it so I think I’m okay to post when I have something I want to say or when I have something to share that I think is truly useful for you.
So you really won’t see too big of a change. I’ll still be sharing what I’m up to with different business ideas, income reports, and if I discover something truly useful I’ll share that as well. I’m just not going to put pressure on myself to post three times per week if I don’t have something important to say.
Sheww…..I feel better already.
I think I’ve finally found a system that works for me as far as all my projects go. Yay! More on that in the coming weeks.
So, I’ve been attentively tying up loose ends on my other projects. I’ve almost got one down and then I have one more to go. After that I have a few more ideas to work on – one that’s kind of exciting to me.
My plans are very similar to what MMD posted on his blog yesterday. I think he as a very smart plan of action!
I don’t want to reveal too much now but there are several things I want to do in 2014. I’ve already started on one project but I’m trying to tie up all my loose ends else where before I spend too much time on it. Once I get the new project started and in good standings I’ll reveal it. I did a bit of research and I think I can pull this one off.
I think I’m probably good on writing jobs. I’d take a few more if they came my way but I’m not actively looking for them anymore. Right now, depending on the week, I write anywhere from 7-13 blog posts for other people. This is about a days’ worth of work. I did also recently get another one post per week writing gig.
The writing jobs provide me with some consistent income which I like but I also want to keep time for all of my other ideas.
I do still plan on giving magazine writing a shot though. I think it would be a good way to make a writing income with less of a commitment.
A Flip House
You guys don’t understand how much I want to flip a house. Home prices in my area are beyond ridiculously low and even if I couldn’t flip the house I could still rent for positive cash flow.
You can read all about my house flipping strategy on ELYM. I even link to houses for sale in my area…..
I really need to ramp up my income so that I can save enough money to put down on a house. I am so tempted right now to use my emergency fund but I know that’s a horrible idea. A flip house is definitely on my to-do list for 2014.
Yeah I’ve got some business idea ADD – I know. But that’s what I really want to do in 2014.
Do you have business plans for 2014?
