When coaching, I’ve found that goal-setting isn’t a foreign practice for Black woman entrepreneurs. It’s commonly accepted that setting goals is a key tool for business growth. However, that doesn’t mean we all set goals effectively, or that we reach them. In the Sistahpreneurs Goal Digger Program, a training program to help business owners set powerful goals that help grow their businesses, I talk about avoiding common barriers to reaching goals. I call these barriers “goal trolls” because they serve as distractions, derailers and straight up “haters” when you’re on the grind to reach your goals.
Some of the goal trolls I talk about in the goal-setting program are:
- Troll 1: Goals with no vision or strategy.
- Troll 2: Goals with no plan.
- Troll 3: Goal overload.
- Troll 4: Goals that are not inspiring or bold!
- Troll 5: Goals that someone else created for you or that you borrowed.
- Troll 6: Wearing many hats and having distractions to building powerful daily momentum!
When setting goals that take your business to the next level, you should utilize a process that helps you set specific and directive goals, but you also need a plan that resists goal trolls. This plan includes accountability and progress-monitoring routines.
With Goal Digger, small business owners can set goals without having to figure out the process for setting goals. It’s all there: steps, tools, and guides. The program consists of 5 modules of videos, activities, and tools and can be used individually or with a business team.
The Goal Digger online training is designed to help small business owners link attainable goals to a vision that is audacious! When in the day-to-day, it’s common to rush the goal-setting process and check it off of the to-do list, but your process should start with remembering the bold dream that your business is destined for! This is the key to increasing revenues. The program’s tools are also designed to help entrepreneurs create a clear business strategy and theory of action, both of which your goals are then plugged into.
