I am afraid that if I set big goals for my design business, it will consume all of my time. I already missed a soccer game this week, and I work at night when the kids go to sleep. I don’t want to miss more of my family.
Can I have the jobs and clients that I want and still have a life?
Yes you can have your dream design business, you just need to plan for it properly. Often women don’t step fully into the full expression of their creativity and business because they think they will have to give up a big, important piece of their life. This decision causes them to hold back and not go for the kind of jobs and clients that they really want.
When it comes to goal setting, I recommend that you set just four big broad goals for the year. Goals big enough, that the accomplishment will create a major impact on your life. At least one of the big goals must be personal. This way you design your business and your life from the viewpoint of what is most important, and most satisfying to you and your family.
