Results of the 2018 Entrepreneur Goals Survey!

Smart Business Revolution Entrepreneur Goals Survey

Drumroll please… today I am excited to reveal the results of the 2018 Smart Business Revolution/Rise25 Entrepreneur Goals Survey!

A few weeks back, we surveyed all of our subscribers to find out what YOUR goals are for the next 12 months.

Every entrepreneur knows… making and keeping goals are two separate things. It’s one thing to make goals, but following through and making them happen is a whole ‘nother matter.

So we figured it would be helpful – as well as insightful – to do a survey and find out what goals people are setting for themselves.

I’m a big believer in setting goals, and I also find reading other people’s goals can help you to set more specific and realistic goals. (You can ready my post, Year in Review 2016 & Goal Setting for 2017 here).

I wanted to do a survey and share everyone’s survey answers on this blog for a couple of reasons, including (a) posting your answers on this blog would hold you accountable to the goals you set, and (b) by sharing a link to your website with the survey results, I wanted to send more traffic to your website (which could, in turn, help you to achieve the goals you set to achieve).

Also, if you hadn’t set goals before hearing about our survey, hopefully it inspired you to take the time to set goals for yourself.

We got some really interesting results from the survey. In total, we had about 200 people fill out the survey. And I found people took it very seriously.

Here were a couple of the common themes we saw in the results:

  • Increase profit – a lot of you said you were hoping to make your business more profitable in 2018.
  • Make your business more scaleable – many answers focused on things you wanted to do to make your business more scaleable, like finally get a website launched or revamped, launch an online course, or publish a book.
  • Make a difference – I was really pleased how many of you focused your goals on helping others rather than focusing 100% of yourselves. I’m a big believer when you focused on helping others, it will come back to benefit you.

So, without any further ado, here are the results of our survey.

And here is to YOU achieving your goals in 2018!

P.S. whether you filled out the survey or not, would you share this post? You can share it in two seconds here. If everyone shares this post, it will help the entire community to benefit and to achieve their goals. A win-win-win. : )

P.P.S. One of MY big goals for 2018 is to help more of you to achieve your goals. We’ll be hosting a small group Intensive in late January in San Francisco where the goal is to help you to increase your revenue and create a more scaleable business. Learn more here.
