Why an increasing number of women are turning to entrepreneurship

3. Set goals the RIGHT way

It’s important you set yourself goals to keep yourself moving forward. But when you set that goal make sure you break it down and plan out how you’ll actually achieve it too.

Ideally you want to be setting goals for yourself with deadlines, so 30 day goals and 90 day goals, they’re not too far in the future that you’ll forget about them and they’re near enough for you to keep yourself motivated to meet them. 

Set yourself goals, break those goals down, understand how you’re going to make them happen, plan it out and then action it.

4. Get yourself a support network

You don’t have to do this alone, there are people out there who can help and support you. Working from home can be a lonely place, and if you don’t have anyone that understands your dreams and what you’re trying to work towards then it’s even worse.

Surround yourself with likeminded people who believe in you and your dreams ? they’re either on the same path as you or they’re slightly ahead of you.

You might have to look further afield than your friends and family because they don?t understand what it takes to run a successful business. You can try networking groups (online and offline) to make honest connections with people who ?get? it. You don’t have to do this alone.
