The Goals and Vision for Well-Rounded Success

A certain personality trait gets me in trouble: my mind and mouth defaults to the truth. I get myself in trouble with my lovely fiancée because I admit the truth rather than telling a little fib to cover up my mistake. Baffling to myself and entertaining to others.

Instead of training my mind to be more secretive, I rather embrace my honest behavior and be upfront with Well-Rounded Success’ new business strategy. In order for people to trust me and share their vision, challenges, and goals, I find it important to share mine.

This article will expose what we’re up to and you might discover how you can help us accomplish our goals – short-term and/or long-term.

6 Month Goals and Rewards

In order to feel like progress is being made, it’s important to set S.M.A.R.T. goals. To make goals more fun, you have to reward yourself along the way. Here’s a matrix illustrating my goals and rewards for the next six months. Please get in touch with me if you have any advice and/or you could possibly help me accomplish these goals: Message Dan.
