2019 has been challenging, but a great and awesome year; definitely one of the most transformative and successful ones in my book. For 2020:

1) Publish ebook by end of January 2020

2) Launch initial MVP (out of various), incorporate and acquire first customers by mid-February. Late winter timing is perfect.

3) Continue to grow customer base. Grow and diversify service/offers in a sustainable manner if appropriate

4) Have business income at par with job income by end of 2020

Been working on this for a few years, and finally got myself to a position where I can finally execute with the amount of leverage necessary to not neglect some of the most important things in life.

If it was only that easy to repo. lol I have several friends in the business. One friend had his son shot in the face about 10 years ago. He lived and is leading a 'normal' life now. Another guy got out of the repo business and bought several wreckers to do regular towing. My other buddy used to head up one of the companies that would take control of houses when the lender would repo it, well, long story short, 3 years ago those companies started getting in to the vehicle repo business because there are so many people not making their payments these days. Good luck and I hope you keep us updated on it.
That's one of the reasons we'll install a kill switch on each vehicle. And yes, I know the difficulty and the dangers. I'm in the low to moderate-income rental business. I'm doing an eviction right now. He must out on Sunday at 5 PM. Monday my rit--assistance kicks in where I can call the authorities to help me. Thanks.

Not a New Year's Resolution thread, but a mere proclamation of what you will accomplish in 2020.

List one thing, or many.

Whatever you resolve to do.

Please keep your proclamation measurable!

Lose weight is not measurable, lose 50 lbs is!
Start a business is not measurable, sell X units is!

This time next year, we will bump this thread and see how things went!

Also, if you posted in this thread AND have a progress thread, please include and link to it!!

Thank you!

For me, my 2020 objective is of a personal nature, so it isn't something I'm willing to disclose here.
Finish what I started in 2019 my GASI (General Artificial Super intelligence) Algorithm + implementation (yes we're not done yet) + Move to Bahrain (before Deutsche bank collapses). But that is a little hard as I've as a matter of fact got a rare neurological condition. (Panthonate Kinase associated neurodegeneration) But F*ck that The GASI (if it works) will cure me as easy as people who don't mind getting fail phobia passes an university exam.

There are some people, I want to support in 2020 personally.
Than I want to get many people using some things I have invented and I want to make some people read some books I have written and I want to write.
I want some people to be happy about my service I provide for them.
If there’s some money for that finding me, I ll not mind.

Sports: I ll try to keep up with my 10 years younger sportsfriends, as I did this year, and not hurt doing this.

Iwant to meet some interesting people, maybe out of this forum. But only, it the dring beer! ;)

This is the year, which will define my the rest of my life.

2020 Themes
  • I will not allow myself to be another cog, but I will produce the F*cking machine and have cogs making me money
  • MAN THE F*ck UP AND GET SHIT DONE
  • Stop planning, talking, and analyzing, start executing, failing, learning, and succeeding
  • Average is not an option.
I’ve come close to taking the leap, investing in my ideas, doing what I want to do, being confident that shit will go sideways but being confident I can survive it, and believing that I am meant to do more than working the corporate life rat race.

All in all- in 2020 I will offset my current income by investing in two international vacation rentals and developing a SaaS platform that I’ve conjured up this year. This will allow me to man the F*ck up and listen to that little voice I’ve neglected for way to F*cking long. These are my 11 steps, which will get me there; starting with...
  1. Buy my first vacation property in Ambergris Caye by the end of March; generating minimally $1,000 monthly profit
  2. Pay off all Consumer debt (credit cards/ personal loans) by the end of March; reducing $750 reoccurring [monthly] costs
  3. File for stateside biz license by the end of April
  4. Sell house by the end of June, freeing up $90,000 in post-tax capital; rolling over $35,000 to 2nd property down payment.
  5. Buy 2nd vacation property in Ambergris Caye by the end of July (27th birthday present to myself); generating minimally $1,000 monthly profit
  6. Acquire and revamp, or develop SaaS platform by the end of September
  7. Generate first $1 in sales, by the developed SaaS, NLT end of October
  8. Sell off half of awarded vest stocks at the end of November freeing up $60,000.
  9. Scale SaaS gross revenue to $2500 by the end of December; achieving ~$2000 net profit.
  10. Obtain business Belize biz license, for 2nd company, kicking off step 11
  11. With the extra passive income (~$4,000), reduced monthly costs ($2,000), and nest egg money ($120,000)- put in 2 weeks notice last week of December and take my son on a vacation to Belize to go Snorkeling, eat lobster burritos at the local breakfast shack, read UNSCRIPTED at Secret Beach with a Jack and Coke in my hand, and reflect on how epic 2020 was....

1. I want to hit 1000 MRR (around 10 customers @ $100 a mo) for my web design business providing value through maintenance, revisions, etc. (credit to somebody for this idea, forget what there name is but thanks)
2. I want to provide enough value that I can sell sites worth at least $1000 or more to my clients. I'm currently on my first client for an art gallery and I feel like there is a big need as most of these owners are boomers and computer illiterate (mostly)
3. I want to continue my food desert business ( snowcones specifically) and go to more events like running races.

In 2020 I will accomplish:
-Community of at least 10,000 people.

-Be the best versión of my self ( find the balance between Learning, waking up early, rest properly, exercise and healthy food)

For my business I've already started a calendar of how to achieve 10,000 people comunity + launch the first of the online products.

I want to do a year, quarter and monthly review to check of how things are going more often.

I will guys let you know when I have a Draft of my reviews.

Estonia
I will..

-grow my local Estonian business as much as possible in the next 2-3 months and then sell it (nothing to get me or you excited about - it's hard to scale here so I'm not looking for a payday. Just a small profit and selling to someone who wants to start out and have a small side income).

-work hard on my new project - same niche as the local one, but digital products. Selling worldwide. Want to get at least 10 customers in February. Would love to be profitable after 6 months and get more organic customers. Just starting this now and spending money on ads to get traction and followers. 2 clients so far, I'm happy with it.

-test new physical products I designed in the first months of 2020. I will get the samples next week and by March I should know if I should pursue it or walk away. Pretty excited about this one anyway.

-quit my job abroad in February-March and get a new one in Estonia. Will lose a lot of money with this move, but I need more time to work on business. I have savings for maybe a year at that point and if I get a new job here I don't have to use my savings. Only for business purposes maybe. I'm also getting more and more unhappy travelling all the time and I want to be home with my family.

-meet new people who are interested in entrepreneurship and self-development. Currently not a lot of people like this in my life. Hoping to meet some of the forum guys when I work in Oslo in the next couple of months!

-learn new platforms to use for my business - FB is now my main thing, but I'm just starting with IG and Pinterest. For physical products I will also use Etsy, E-Bay, Amazon. So a lot of learning!

-compete in at least one half-marathon competition. Time will be under 2 hours.

-make 2020 the last year I work for someone else (maybe being a bit naive with this one).

Wishing you all the best!

I haven't managed to achieve much in 2019, even after receiving a huge help. It totally feels like failure for me. In 2020:
1) Stop behaving like victim.
2) Cut off from hyperreality.
3) Make at least 2000 pln from any side hustle.
4) Read at least 15 books.

Came up with this tonight, may refine later...

- $150K USD gross sales on Amazon (December 31st)

- Hire at least 1 VA, possibly more if needed (Jan. 1st)

- Close on 1st rental property before current apartment lease is up to begin journey of building RE empire (May 27th)

- Sign up for Fastlane Insiders which I should have done a while back (Jan. 1st)

- Become semi fluent in Spanish, (have not figured out the best way to track this and how to be specific so any ideas welcome)

- 1 International Trip, with credit card points I really don't have to come out of pocket for this (Dec 31st)

- Read 12 books, 1 per month (Dec. 31st)

- Continue to eat healthy and increase body weight to 200 pounds. Currently at 185 so this comes out to a bulk of 1.25 pounds per month... still need to figure out bench press and squat goals in the next few days. (Dec. 31st)

- Develop 3 genuine friendships locally with people that have similar mindsets and have goals that align with mine. While some people will say you will naturally attract people that think similarly when you reach a certain level of success, I think it is important to cultivate and find these relationships along the journey. (Dec. 31st)
