It’s that time of year!
When everyone begins to look back on the current year, reflecting on what they’ve accomplished. And looking forward to the next year, setting goals.
So what are some goals that you could probably have for 2022?
*Note: I’ve very intentionally used the word “could” here. While I think these three goals are good for most authors at any stage of their business, the truth is that you might be in a spot where only one or none of these are appropriate for you. And that’s totally okay. The point is for you to dream about where you could go, and assess what tiny step you could take in that direction today.
- Hit a particular Sales $$$ goal. This is the most basic and expected goal for any year. “I want to make $XXX,XXX in book sales by the end of this year.” Awesome! Whatever that number is for you, what one thing are you going to do to accomplish that? And then what is the thing you’re going to do after that?
- Release a book in a way I never have before. This could be starting out in a new medium like large print or audio. Or it might be getting a book traditionally published for the first time. Perhaps you want to hit a best-seller list for the first time. Maybe you want to release an anthology or a boxed set because you’ve never done that before. Or maybe you’re ready for releasing limited, numbered, special editions or graphic novels. What’s one way you can release a book that you haven’t done yet. Now, what do you need to do to accomplish that?
- Open up a new passive income revenue stream. Let’s face it. Smart business owners have as many passive income streams as they can that fit within their brand. So what are some revenue sources you could add to your author business. Affiliate codes, especially with the book retailers, are obvious. But there are many, many more passive income streams available to authors. So what do you need to do to get another one going? What step do you need to take now?
