I have some many goals for next year but my biggest goal is to get enough income to make my business into a “legal” one


Thanks for the motivation! My goal for 2013 is to set up online sales.
Thank you.


I would say my biggest goal would be for next year is would to launch very strong my concept as right now I am preparing to launch. And actually make profit.


Hi Andreea ~ I LOVE planners and I can’t wait to get this one and start my planning for 2013 over the Holidays!

My biggest goal for 2013 is to increase the revenue in my business to $500,000! I’m enrolled in Product Marketing Breakthrough and can’t wait to get started!

Thanks for a great post!



Love your video. Your right so many goals we have. One major goal though is to have our website work for us. We look forward to our site being one where people are motivated to become part of 100% Living and desire to own and wear our shirts.


My goal for 2013 is to re-launch my floral design/event planning business and launch the online store, which has been in the making for the last two years. I’ve had to put it aside to raise my family. Ideally, I’d like to grow my business to be able to be a stay-at-home mom, while being able to provide for my family.


One of my goals for 2013 is to land an additional 30 wholesale accounts.

Thanks for the great video!


I’d like to get my granola into 10 stores by the end of February. 2 down, 8 to go! And then continue to grow my business throughout the year. I would love to get featured in Country Living magazine. And so on… : )

On your recommendation, I bought this planner, Andreea. I printed it out and had it comb-bound, so the pages lie flat and make it easier to write in. Like you, I love the section of the planner where Leonie asks us to reflect on what we did right in 2012. That’s so useful to do before you think about what you can accomplish in the next 12 months. I don’t need to be entered in the drawing because I own it, and I’d encourage everyone else to invest the $9.95 themselves and get it.

My goal is build my party line and book series.


This looks like a great planner. My goal for next year is get my social media posts organized and on a regular basis. I just started a blog so I want to develop that as well. I would also like to increase my sales and product line. I hope I win the palnner I think it will help. Shared on Facebook and twitter.

I’m a photographer & every year I have set goals & I have even written them down, but they are in so many different places that I forget where I put stuff. It would be awesome to have them all in one place. Plus, I LOVE things like this, so it would be fun too!


omygoodness! My guardian Angel must have led me to YOU.
Just started a wonderful Greeting Card business and yes, I’ve made many mistakes…no no, I’ve had many experiences in growth!!

I need and want Leonie’s book, as I really need somebody to help me!!
My hubby has good intentions, and is working so I can “get off the ground,” yet I need some goddesses to push me out of my nest.

My immediate desire is to see my cards in every town, in every bookstore and coffee shop in Oregon!!

But I can honestly say, I am afraid of bookwork.
It’s getting all bunched up and -confusing.
I’m great at creating, but the money and business part is overwhelming.
How do I do this right?
I feel scared to mention it to my husband now.
And we do not have enough extra money to hire an accountant.
I am downright scared – to do anything.
Rather embarrased, too, because I’m 58 and never been so weak. Perhaps, because I feel like I’m in the public eye now.

Is there any help for me?
How do other artists do it?
Bookkeeping lessons?

Anyway, YES YES, please put my name in the hat for Leonie’s planner, and I hope to hear back from you is some way regarding invoicing, etc.

LOVE LOVE LOVE is in the air::::::::::::::::::teri”

ps. I’m still working on my website.
It is not finished yet.
