Goals, September 2014

Goals, September 2014Well, long time no talk! Last week, with the start of a new semester and the process of (continuing to) settling into my new home, I decided it would be smart to take posting and returning comments off of my to-do list. It definitely helped, and I’m slowly transferring my regular routines to fit this new space and season.

Can you believe there are only a few months left in 2014? I honestly feel like this year just started (do I say that every month?). I’m thrilled to be setting these goals for September, only because it means that Fall is near! I can’t wait to trade my shorts in for jeans and my sandals in for moccasins and boots.

Now, onto the goals…

August Recap

– Back to slower blogging. Check! Did you even notice the new MWF posting schedule (with the exception of today, due to the holiday weekend)? I’ve also been great about sending out bi-weekly newsletters.

– More early mornings. A definite check, though of course once classes and homework were back in the picture, all I want to do is nap and sleep in.

– Morning & evening yoga. Only a semi-check here. Moving and unpacking definitely put a halt to my daily yoga practice, but I’m excited to get back on track. First step: buy a new yoga mat!

September Goals

01 / Monitor my finances closely. I recently made an account on Minted, and just seeing the overview of where I spent the most was a real eye opener. With graduation only months away, I really want to become a more conscious spender.

02 / Finish writing and launch my e-course. The hardest part about creating an ecourse: sitting down to write thoughtful and organized lessons. I’m hoping to really kick things into high gear and launch by the end of the month!

03 / Explore avenues to earn passive income. Unfamiliar with the term passive income? It simply means income earned from projects/content you create that you don’t have to work on or update daily. For example: ebooks, ecourses, ect. I have a lot of really creative (and hopefully useful) ideas that could really benefit bloggers and creatives. I really want to determine 2-3 things I can produce and launch to be a reliable steam of income for myself.

That’s it! Three goals that I’ll be working actively towards for the next 30 days. Have you set any goals for the month? Share them in the comments!

    • That’s awesome!! Best of luck to you, as well!

  1. Good luck with your goals this month!! I’ll be doing a ton of re-focusing as Im getting ready to make a major change with my shop!

    • I’m excited to see all of your upcoming changes to the shop!!

  2. great goals! I definitely relate to 1 & 3. I realized last month I’m a horrible spender, so it was time to get my pennies in check! Love your blog by the way!

    • I found I spent way too much money on eating out -grabbing coffee and breakfast in the morning adds up quick!

  3. So, so excited for the e-course – any chance of some sneak peaks?! I’d love to make my own e-books or e-course, but I just never seem to have time to plan out an awesome product. I hope you are more successful than me there!

    • There will definitely be a sneak peak of the ecourse in the next few weeks and a mailing list where you can sign up for email updates!

  4. YES to all of this! Super excited for what’s to come!

    And if you can get ahold of your finances now, you’ll be golden for post grad life!

    • That’s what I’m hoping for!!

  5. Woo! Love these goals! I’ve been wanting to figure out how to revamp the ways I make passive income (my ebook + my templates). It definitely is lovely to wake up and make money without being so focused on doing things to earn it. Here’s to both of us getting some new things off the ground! 🙂

    • I hope both of us come out with amazing and profitable ideas that help our audiences!!
