What is your biggest business goal for 2016?
Each answer should be as unique as the individual businesses that we run. I'm planning on diversification. I'm launching a second venture into a completely different market and I'm very excited for that. I'm very curious to hear what you are planning for 2016.
Hey Jeff, it must be the year for new beginnings, I too am setting focus on a new venture. While I continue to consult I am flexing my creativity and launching a new business in the art space. Cheers, Lisa

Not sure I'm qualified to answer this as I don't run a business, but I will anyway!
Can never stop myself from making any kind of New Year's resolution.. I want to become more prolific as a writer and increase my readership.
Great question Jeff. I've spent the past few weeks mind mapping, asking myself loaded questions and doing a lot of thinking. I've come to an impasse with the services I've been offering and feel a sense that it's time to shift gears.
With that said, my goal is simple: be intentional.
In whatever I chose to do as a service provider, I want it to be done with intention. Whatever I write, as a writer, I want it to be written with intention.
On a practical note:
- Finish my first draft for my first novel (eeeek!) I'm up to 26K and want to write about 60K. Still slogging through
- Compile my poetry into an eBook to sell
- Write for at least 3 major publications this year.
The last one is a big one for me, well and truly out of my comfort zone. It's the fear of rejection in the way, so the real goal is to overcome that fear and just keep pitching, submitting and offering my writing to the world.
Great question Jef.
Like the others I have a bunch of new ideas to translate into packages and services for my current and potential clients.
The big, practical challenge and goal for me in 2016 is to ask for the work - because if I don't ask, the answer will always be 'No'.
