October 2015 Month in Review for My MLM Business and MLM Blog

Here is my month in review for October 2015 for my OnlineMLMCommunity.com blog and my MLM Business.  I post my results each month on my website to stay accountable to myself and to show you the power of being persistent and consistent in your home business.

My Business Goals for October 2015

Here were my goals for October 2015.  I have them broken down into three categories: one for my blog, one for my MLM Business and my personal goals.  I believe that setting clear, written goals is very important if you want to be successful.

My Daily Mode of Operation for October2015:

This was my daily game plan to build my business in October 2015:

  • Publish at least one new blog post every day, Monday through Saturday
  • Publish one podcast per day, Monday through Sunday
  • Revise one old blog post every day
  • Post 3-5 updates in my Facebook Mastermind Group every day
  • Send training email to my list every Wednesday and Sunday
  • Follow up with new leads daily by phone, SKYPE or email every day
  • Mail out two hand written notes every day, seven days a week
  • Read for 20 minutes per day
  • Exercise daily (six days a week)
  • Call 1-2 team members every day

*** On average, this takes me about two hours per day to accomplish (not counting reading and exercise)!

  1. I agree with you that having clear written goals is a must. Very neat how you have decided to share your goals with all your blog readers. Talk about holding yourself accountable! Not only do you have to answer to yourself, but to all of us too!

    What made you decide to go public with your goals and your progress? Have you noticed a difference in your effectiveness since you’ve started sharing them on your blog?

    • My numbers and goals are nothing compared to many other people. I do it to be accountable to myself.
