In 2018, I radically changed my approach to setting goals and running my business.

As we enter a New Year, I wanted to put together an episode focused on how to set goals that will leave you more fulfilled.  

Instead of setting massive goals, I ask myself simple questions and make strategic changes to my business and life based on my answers. Those strategic changes led to more profit, less stress, and more personal freedom.

In this episode, both Andrew and I share a glimpse into our businesses and our personal plans for 2019.  We also offer you some straightforward questions you can use to help you set more fulfilling goals in 2019. This episode will give you a head start for 2019. Enjoy!
