Goal Setting and why it is important in order to start and run a successful business.

I help my mentees with the roadmap to success but we can not design a roadmap if we have no goals.  If you are at a point where you feel like your brain needs structure, if your ideas are all over the place and you feel overwhelmed.  Listen to this podcast to help you start over and plan out your steps and set goals.   When you set your goals up, your are setting up your map for success.   All successful people set goals.  Do we accomplish them all; probably not, but we sure try.  The most important piece is that you at least set up goals so you have something to aim for.
