Ep #108 Why the Goal is not the Goal

November 05, 20232 min read

Listen To The Episode Here


How often do you set a goal and then forget about it after a couple of weeks? As business owners, we know goals are important but we also have this weird love-hate relationship with goal setting that makes the entire process of going after our goals quite miserable.

In this episode we are deep diving into why you’re not hitting your goals and what to do instead so that go after the goal is fun and achieving it becomes inevitable.

Here’s a glance at what is covered during this episode:

  • The resistance that comes up when we set goals as women entrepreneurs

  • The old way of setting goals

  • Why your goal needs a deadline (it’s not what you think!)

  • Working against ourselves

  • The three biggest costs of going after your goal

  • Why we need to and want to set goals as entrepreneurs

  • The unsuspected byproducts of going after your goal
