How to Start Your Goals Early

I hope everyone is having a great holidays with friends and family! I don’t know about you, but I am excited to have some down time this last week of December. Even though it has been nice taking a break from blogging and working, I’ve been working on creating some personal and professional goals since 2016.

With the end of the year approaching, I know I’m not the only one who is ready to set some new goals for next year. If you have some free time this week, here are a few different topics to help you get in the goal zone.

Blogging Books

There are two books I have read since I started blogging, and I’ve actually read them both multiple times because they are completely different from each other!

How to Blog For Profit: Without Selling Your Soul is perfect for beginners and veterans. Even though I enjoy blogging, it still needs to bring in an income. Thanks to this book, I’ve learned how to monetize my blog and dream bigger about what my blog can offer.

Building A Framework: The Ultimate Blogging Handbook  will walk you through step by step on all aspects of blogging, including video and photo tutorials that make things really easy to understand. I read this book early on in my blog blogging journey (I even wrote a review) and have gone back to this book repeatedly.

    1. Oh wow, thanks! It’s so strange to look back at my year, it was really different than all my other years ๐Ÿ™‚
