I started this blog to share my real life with complete strangers in an attempt to find happiness and build a life I loved. While at the same time trying to prove to myself and other people that we are capable and worthy of a great life.

My Biz + Life Goals and Resolutions for 2020

2019 was probably the best year of my business and life which you probably knew if you read last weeks blog post and I am on a mission to make 2020 even better. I thought it would be fun to outline my goals and share them with you guys so at the end of this year we can look back at this post and see what I accomplish. I’m even going to tell you how much money I hope to make this year.


At the end of 2019, I made a timeline of all of the projects I have planned for 2020 and it is a lot. I am so excited to get these projects out for you guys because I truly believe the projects I am coming out within 2020 have the power to hopefully change your lives. The projects I have planned are on so many topics, and some of them might not make sense right now but at the time it launches it should make sense.

Here are the projects:

  1. Course on affiliate marketing.

  2. Course on email marketing.

  3. Course on blogging traffic.

  4. Content calendar.

  5. Planners.

  6. Journals.

  7. Merchandise.

  8. Course on creating digital products and selling them.

Many of these things won’t be coming out until the second half of the year because at some point in the middle of this year we are going to be moving so I will have way more time in the second half of the year to focus on getting this stuff out for you guys.

Things to do

There are so many things I want to accomplish this year. I am one of those people that thinks they can do anything which sometime means I bite off more than I can chew. So hopefully I end up getting all of these things accomplished in 2020.

  1. Start (restart) a podcast. In 2018 for a short while I had a podcast, I want to re-launch it with even more info now that I have learned so much more about business, blogging, and life.

  2. Start a YouTube channel. I know people learn differently, and enjoy different types of content and one of the questions I get asked the most is if I have a YouTube channel, and currently, I don’t but I would love to eventually have one, and share content with you guys in that way.

  3. Weekly emails. I love touching base with you guys and providing value to you guys regularly. One of my favorite ways to provide extra tips that I think will improve your life is by sending a weekly email. It lets me talk to you more candidly, share my real life, and share business advice that is super amazing.

  4. Speak more. I feel like having advice you don’t share is wasted potential. I have gotten a few opportunities to speak in the past and the feedback I get from those from you guys is amazing. It is a huge goal of mine to make speaking something I get to do more of. It could be podcast, conferences, or really anywhere I just want to do more of it.


I am so excited about my business and where my team is taking it. There are so many things we plan to accomplish, and are working daily on. We have 1001 little goals for 2020 so I will just outline the big ones here.

  1. Change the structure of the business. I want to reorganize our business financially and legally and figure out what business structure will benefit us the most in the long run. This is something I will have to get together with a financial advisor and lawyer and go over, but it is something I hope to have finished this year.

  2. Grow the team. 2019 was a crazy year for growth in the business and in a lot of ways we are still catching up. It made me realize how important it is to grow a team. There are many more employees that we need and hopefully after the move, and after the restructuring, we will be ready to grow the team with many new employees.

  3. Offices? Currently, everyone works remotely which works for now, but personally I don’t think there is anything better than getting together in person to accomplish things. Because we aren’t sure where we are moving yet we work from home and don’t want everyone to feel like they have to work from our house too but I think if we move and get everything organized this year I may want to get office space for the whole team to work from.

  4. New divisions. There are a lot of projects we want to come out this year but some will require we add an entirely new section to our company. So in order to launch all the things this year, we will need to add some new people and divisions to our company.


There are really only a few things planned for this year travel-wise. I have been so busy that I haven’t sat down and really planned many vacations for this year. So far this year we only have a few things I want to do or already have planned.

  1. Disney in January (we are leaving 2 days after I’m writing this)

  2. Texas? We are thinking about moving to Texas so we will probably be going in February to try an area we love.

  3. Disney in May.

Traveling is my favorite thing, even when I have to travel for work I love that too. I have a few passion projects I’m working on this year and one of them involves Disney, which is why I am going there so often this year.

I think there will be way more traveling after we move but right now it is hard to plan things because I don’t know where we will be coming or going from.


I am a vision board, goal setting, personal development junkie. So I’m always fired up to set a goal and achieve it but the beginning of the year probably even more so. This year I don’t have a ton of super-specific goals that weren’t already mentioned. I have a few silly goals that I want to achieve but aren’t at the top of my list, but I’ll leave them below so you can get an idea of the things that are on my personal radar when I’m not daydreaming about the next business-related thing I want to accomplish.

  1. A Lincoln Navigator Black Label. I am obsessed with the Lincoln Navigator. It came out right after I bought my brand new Chevy SUV last year, so I couldn’t convince myself it was worth it to trade in my brand new 2019 7 seat SUV for another brand new 7 seat SUV with a few more features, but hopefully, by the end of this year or next year, I’ll be ready to trade it in.

  2. A pool. I love our house it’s two years old it has everything I thought I wanted in a house but it turns out we don’t love living in the freezing cold midwest. I was raised in Florida and I miss the warmth, and being able to spend time by the water and outside. One of our goals this year is to move somewhere warm, and I would love for our new house to have a pool.

  3. A giant tub. If you can’t tell I love the water, being in the water or by the water is my favorite place to relax. Our current house has an amazing master bathroom but no tub. I thought it wouldn’t matter and I could just get over it because the rest of our house is great but I really miss having a big tub. It isn’t at the top of my list of needs in our next house but I sure would love if it has a tub in the master bathroom.

  4. A walk-in pantry with plugs. Do you see amazing pantries on Pinterest all the time? I feel like I see amazing organized pantries on Pinterest basically every day. We have a walk-in pantry currently and it holds everything we would ever need but If I could build my dream pantry it would have plugs. It seems like every year we are adding a new kitchen appliance to our home. Now we have single-serve coffee markers, small and large Crock-Pots, instant pots, air fryers, a Ninja Foodi, a toaster, a waffle iron, a milk frother, a kitchen aid mixer, and we are so blessed to have all these things (my husband loves to cook) but I would love a place to have them all plugged in behind a pantry door so they aren’t cluttering my counters. So maybe one day we can have my dream pantry with plugs and a large counter for all the appliances.

  5. A book! I love to write, and eventually, my biggest dream would be to write a book. I already know what it’s going to be about and in my mind, it is a personal development book. I don’t want to give it away but it is so good, and I’ve already started writing it but I would love to get a book deal and not just self publish a book. So hopefully in the next few years, I get a book deal and finish this darn book. If not this is going to be the best self-published book you’ve ever read!

  6. Kids? I have always wanted to be a mom and it was the whole reason I originally wanted to be a nurse was to work with kids, and get to be home 3 days a week instead of 2 so I could see my hypothetical children more. My husband and I have been married for like 5 years now and before when I pictured my life I would have thought I would have like 3 kids by now, but we don’t have any and maybe that will change within the next few years. We wanted to be settled first and make sure the company can run without me working 24/7, and hopefully, both those things can happen in the not so distant future.


I set big financial goals because for me they are a huge motivation to keep going. Plus, as an entrepreneur, it serves as a good way to measure growth. Last year we more than met our financial goals so this year I have decided to set my biggest financial goal ever.

  • $1,000,000 in revenue. It isn’t my goal to bring home a million dollars this year but I would love for the company to at least bring in $1,000,000 in revenue.

Truly that is my only financial goal for the business I have a few personal financial goals but they would all easily be accomplished if we grow the companies revenue to $1,000,000 or more this year.

I can’t wait to check in with you guys

That is really all of my goals for this year, I feel like I’m still in that new year bliss where I’m convinced I am going to accomplish all of these goals and I’m still super motivated. Hopefully, it doesn’t wear off.

I can’t wait to check back in with you guys maybe in the middle of the year, or the end of the year and see what I actually accomplish this year.

If you have any big goals you want to accomplish this year share them below then hopefully we can both look back at this post and the end of the year and see that we accomplished everything we set out to.

Have a great day, week, and year!
