My January Review & February Goals

My January Review & February Goals

Here is an update of the goals I set myself for January and the results. I know that my goals for January were very ambitious for the first month of the year but because I didn’t know what to expect, I thought I would aim high.

My Thoughts

My results might not have been as spectacular as I would have hoped but the good news is that I did make some progress. The major benefit of setting these benchmarks means that I now have a better understanding of the amount of time and effort that is needed in order to get things done. I am now able to alter and amend my expectations when I set my goals for February.

My Kindle Book Earnings

For the month of January, I set a simple goal of earning $2,00 from my Audra Bell books. I am happy to report that I earned a little more than that and I earned some change from the other books that I published under my own name. I look forward to seeing that increase month by month.

Goals for February

#2 – To Publish 1 Post Per Week on This Blog

#3 – To Publish 2 New Posts on My Author Blog

#4 – To Publish Two New Short Stories on Amazon

#5 – To Write and Complete a New Short Story

#6 – To Increase My Kindle Book Earnings by 100%

I will be running a free book promo for my short story where I hope to gain new subscribers. It is already set up and without any promotion, I have about 20 new names on my list. I will write a blog post review about the service once the promotion has been and gone.

I am excited about getting a couple of new stories published this month. All the bits and pieces are there, I just have to write the blurbs, order the book covers and upload everything to the Amazon website.

I am looking forward to a productive and progressive February. Wish me luck 🙂
