What Are Your Intentions?

solomastermindimgI was listening to Kelly’s Solo Smart Podcast number 91 with Amanda Cook and she said something that really got me to thinking about starting a business and the difference between those who make money, and those who don’t.

It Comes Down to Intentions and Actions

There are a lot of articles out there that say that intentions don’t matter, but I disagree. If you really want to start a business that earns money you need to have the intent to do so, and not just be dabbling. Of course, you can have the best intentions in the world, but if it’s not followed up by action, you will not succeed either. So the next thing I thought about while listening to the fascinating interview was how you have to follow intentions with action in order to succeed.

Then I got even more excited thinking about what all this means.

As a Virtual Assistant, what you do for your clients is turn your client’s intentions into actions. It doesn’t really matter which niche you work with, your audience needs you to help them turn their intentions into achievable goals which together you’ll act upon, to help them earn more money.

Time and again I speak to people who claim to want to earn money as a VA. But, they don’t do the work necessary to turn their ideas into intention followed by actions that get results.  They seem to just have this idea that they want a business, and then they spend the next 10 years dreaming instead of following through.

As you analyze your intentions to determine if they can actually become goals, think about how your intentions make you different from your competition, and how you can, through your intentions followed up by actions —  make your dreams of owning a business a reality.

My intentions for 2014 are to double my income.

I have a set plan for that. I will admit here and now I am behind already!  I started this post a few days ago and then got busy and my intentions fell flat. But now I want to list what I am going to do to ensure that my intentions match my reality.

  • Write 12 Kindle Books in 2014
  • Put out 2 Membership Options (One will be released on March 15th)
  • Blog on my own blogs at least every other day
  • Trust in my abilities

What are your intentions for the rest of 2014. Isn’t it amazing that February is getting close to being over? How have you done so far this year?  Let me know in the comment section down below.
