by | Dec 7, 2018 | Consulting Pharmacist Education


“It’s absolutely excellent!

I really like the stories about what caused you to set up your own business, your experience with your little boy and NGx, and your examples.

The [goal] examples really help with understanding!”

– Workshop Attendee, C.B.


Did you decide to begin building a new career this year?

Or finally start that business you’ve always wanted to?

Or take that course you’ve been thinking about?

For the past three years, I have been publishing articles about goal setting to kick off the new year.

It has been a way to hold myself accountable, keep track of my successes (and failures), and because of it I believe I enjoy life more fully than some do in a lifetime and hopefully inspire others to do the same.

Year after year, I stress the importance of creating goals for your life (personal relationships, financial, career and health/self-care).

Goal setting has allowed me to step away from jobs I don’t love, charge what I’m worth and take chances on new ventures.

If we hadn’t started setting some Family Financial Goals back in 2013, I don’t think I would have as many opportunities and options as I do today. We’d still be “paying interest and not ATTENTION” in the words of Dave Ramsey.

In fact, we’ve been using a combination of Mint, Betterment and the notepad app on my phone consistently since 2014 to successfully nearly double our SAVINGS AND EARNINGS rates.

Some of those goals include:

  • Buying and selling a rental property
  • Paying off $75K in student loans in under 5 years
  • Maxing out IRAs every year
  • 3 months salary in emergency fund
  • Purchase hunting land
  • Renovating every inch of our home purchased in 2011
  • Buying our Dream Home
  • Saving on insurance by price comparing/bundling
  • Setting a monthly budget in
  • Traveling the world and getting to all 7 continents by my 40th birthday
  • Having a beautiful family we can afford to spend time with

Check out my 2016 Goals and my first year in Online Business here.

Check out my 2017 Goals and my second year in Online Business here.

Check out my 2018 Goals here.

If you haven’t yet, now is the time to start planning your Personal and Career Growth by setting your goals for 2019.

I set Big Annual Goals in four areas of my life:

  1. Family-Friends-Fun
  2. Financial Priorities
  3. Health & Self-Care
  4. Leadership-Business Impact

In our new Business Development Workshop I teach you my process for setting your Business/Career Goals and share my own 2019 Goals.

Goal setting has allowed me to step away from jobs I don’t love, charge what I’m worth and take chances on new ventures.

Even though it wasn’t on my “goal list” for 2018, I thought it would be fun…so I created a new Planner based on the CORE FOUR Elements of the Healthy Business Helix.


The 2019 Business Development Planner, now available on Amazon, follows along with my latest Business Development Workshop: Planning for 2019 Like a Pharmapreneur.

“You must plan ahead to achieve anything great. “
