In my previous post, I outlined the questions I asked myself in order to work out exactly what I wanted out of life. I have worked through those questions and this is a summary of what I am working on in 2017 and into the future.
If I look good and feel confident I will present myself well to others. For my current business, I feel I need to present a confident and casual persona yet look professional. This relates to both personal and business presentation. For dealing with overseas manufacturers, I feel this will give them the confidence to trade with me. So my personal goals include:-
a) taking action to loose weight
b) regular beauty treatments
c) having the funds to allow the above.
My Goals for my hobbies & entertainment
I need to spend some more time enjoying my hobbies and try to find ways to make income from them. This could be by starting more websites, writing books or turning raw materials into sellable products.
My hobbies include
a) Fishing & Hunter Gathering. Himself eats fish and other seafood but I enjoy the catch. My lifestyle allows me to do this.
b) Gambling is something I love and I am hoping one day to make it to Vegas. Of course, I do severely limit my time and money spent on this hobby. No point having a hobby send you to the wall…
c) Gold and gem prospecting. To further my education goals, I need to find some lapidary clubs to join and learn about.
I need to spend more time discovering locations where I can participate in my hobbies and then traveling to these spots across Australia.
Finances & debt
As we age, we will need to rely more on our online business and other income streams, so need to keep on top of expenses generally and live a simple yet fulfilling life. Being debt free is a big part of financial freedom.

Social Goals -My Goals include time with family, spouse & friends
I need to find more time to visit with family and friends. My aim with my online businesses is to free up my travel time back and forward and have more stops to ‘smell the roses’. This will mean I can spend time with family and friends across Australia yet still travel. Just a lot slower.
Relationship – although healthy & strong marriage, I get frustrated and always feel inferior. Arguing gets me down. My relationship with myself if not the greatest.
More leisure and more money will mean more time for hobbies and getaways. Resorts and Spas mean more intimacy. Keep Himself happy… and ME.
Socialize more with strangers. I tend to shy away and come play on the computer. Need to keep a perspective. I socialize better online than offline.
My travel goals
We currently travel everywhere across Australia but see little except the main street as we drive by.
I aim to play tourist occasionally and photograph more.
My online business is the key to making this goal a reality.
I want to enjoy the sights and write about them as I travel so that I can share Australia and all she has to offer with
Travel overseas Goal.
I have set up my blog partly as a travel website to tackle my goal. I am a digital nomad and travel and as I do so, I am building an online business.
Update – this photo is from my recent trip to China and Hong Kong.
As I look at building an Amazon private label business and updating my existing product lines, I intend to travel overseas to source suppliers and products as well as attend seminars, conferences and trade fairs across the world. Money is my biggest hold up here but I plan to put money made from websites to good use.
My Goals for Health & Fitness
Fitness. I attended a gym which was helping me get my fitness up, however, travel made it hard to attend regularly as there was not always a franchise nearby when I had time to spare. I found that I was fitter, but not slimmer. I have lost more weight with a change of diet rather than more exercise.
Eczema. Something that has just reared it’s ugly head. Need to keep on top of this by keeping skin moist and using less soap.
Blood Pressure – exercise and lowering weight will help. Working on reducing the need for medication. More plain food said to help, so will try.
Sleep – oh for a night when I don’t wake up again & again. Need to try not to go to bed too early. Then again, I tend to go back to sleep around 6am and don’t want to get up. Need to get a sleep pattern happening. ‘sleep school’ perhaps…
Weight loss. As above need to work towards low sugar and low flour high protein diet. Simple foods to help blood pressure. Easy said, hard to do. Drink more water. Hmmm less scotch or scotch with water instead of coke…..
Note, since writing this post I have been without sugar for 12 months and am happy to report that it was not as hard as first thought.
fat burners – try to incorporate more almonds, avocado, cucumber, leafy greens, beans, strawberry, cabbage, broccoli, tomato, spinach, peas, eggs and yoghurt.
Time management and My online presence goals
a) to have a successful blog, monetized to provide income streams and send traffic to my other businesses and those of my business associates.
b) To write books to sell on Amazon.
c) Build an online presence through my websites and social media and continue to learn about all things web and engage in technology to share my finds with people.
d) prospect and create products from my fossicking and gem hunting.
e) Turn my journals into blog posts. I am in the process of writing up all my notes from the past 30 odd years and putting them into a format that makes sense as they relate to my websites and posts. They need to be in some sort of order. As part of my time management, I need to set aside time to work on this.
f)Continue my Amazon education.
By working on an Amazon product label business my goal is to have an income stream that only relies on re-ordering product. This can be expanded to other e-commerce sites and use affiliate and other marketing to drive traffic to my Amazon products.
I need to constantly refer to and rework the Reliable Education training course. It is a fantastic course and I need to continue to follow its teachings and not get greedy for results.
Action to reach my goals
Mindset – make time, no excuses. Work out what will make a difference. Set up routines.
Action – Take action every day to reach my goals
They say women can multi-task. I certainly have a whole heap on my plate. I am continuously learning about online marketing.
