First (Or Next) Four-Figures: Setting the Financial Goal

Welcome to a new month love! This beautiful and warm month of July rings in the halfway mark into the year! I don’t know about you but this year has gone by so quickly for me which can feel like both a blessing and a curse for some people.

You might love it and where you are now (that’s me after a rough start to the year) or you might find yourself feeling overwhelmed and like you aren’t where you want to be or thought you’d be.

No matter what boat you find yourself in, I want to encourage you to enjoy and appreciate the present, be grateful for where you are and prepare yourself for what’s to come in the last half of 2019.

I know that for me one of my goals is to book more clients so that I can teach more women how to build profitable businesses.

This is the reason why when I was contemplating what to talk about this month doing something around profit came to my mind. It’s what my business is built around and what I teach my clients.

I’ll be doing a series all month long on how to bank your first or next four figures! Whether you’ve never made four figures before or you want to add four-figures in revenue to your business this month, I’m diving deep into my best strategies and tips to make the impact and income you desire each week!

The first thing I want to dive into is setting the financial goal. Why? Because four figures can mean a lot of things. It can mean $1,000 and it can mean $9,000.

Here’s the thing, accomplishing a goal starts with one thing and it’s a very important thing which brings us to step one.

Step One: Decide

I want you to DECIDE how much money you want to make this month. Know that there is no right or wrong answer here. You get to decide how much money you want to make and then make it. So pick your four-figure number and then decide it’s going to happen.

Step Two: Write it Down

Now that you’ve decided how much money you want to make this month I want you to write it down. Believe me when I say that there is power in writing things down. Whether you write it down on a check or a piece of paper of a post it note, I want to encourage you to write down the amount you have decided on.

Step Three: Prepare Your Mindset

Now that you’ve decided on this number guess what’s going to happen? Your mind is going to start coming up with all of the reasons why you aren’t going to make this amount of money or why it’s going to be too hard or impossible. It might even try to make you feel guilty about wanting to make this amount of money. I want you to know that this is normal and that you don’t have to let yourself be consumed by it. So I want you to commit to looking at this piece of paper every morning for the next 30 days and saying out loud “I am going to make $X,XXX this month”. Say it every day and if you say it multiple times per day you’ll earn brownie points. They key here is to believe it.

Bonus step: If you really want to go deep with the mindset work (which I highly recommend) I would encourage you to do some journaling around the fears that come up when you speak that number out loud. Notice what thoughts your brain comes up with and write it down and then ask yourself, “where is this coming from? Why do I feel this way? What do I know to be true?” When you make the time to journal around it you will work through more quickly.

Follow these first couple of steps to get started and join me on making your first (or next) four figures! Here’s to your four-figure month babe!
