Write it down.
What if the only action I asked you to take was to write down your goals, would you do it?
Statistics show people who write down their goals have over an 80% higher success rate of achieving them.
The photo above was the goal I wrote for myself at the end of 2006. I had visited Argentina in September of that same year. When I returned from that trip I had some inspiring ideas. I wasn't exactly clear what I wanted to do and I for sure did not know the HOW, but I wrote down what was most clear at that time.
Little did I know the power of what I wrote.
*The following spring of 2007, I hosted a charity garage sale that raised $7000 in one day.
*I travelled back to Argentina and donated 1 year supply of food to a local food back and purchased shoes, underpants, undershirts and socks for 100 kids of that food bank.
*Later that year, I began importing handbags, selling them to friends and family with a mission to buy books for the kids of the food bank with a portion of the profits.
*In 2008 I began wholesaling the bags to boutiques across the country.
*I travelled back to Argentina and donated 6 months of food to the food bank and purchased 350+ books for the kids of the food bank.
*In 2009 I donated 1000+ books to a Chicago charter school that had no library.
*In 2010 I had my bags in 33 stores across the country.
*In 2011 I made a private donation to a woman in an abusive marriage who was struggling to raise her 4 children on her own.

This was something that I never could have predicted.
And it all started with an intention written down on a little note card...
Never in my wildest dreams would I have thought this would have happened...never.
So let me ask you - what goals are you setting for your life and business?
I want to challenge you to write it down.
Don't worry about the how. That will come later.
This week take the first step and put a pen to paper with your dream and let's work together to make that dream a reality.
