QUESTION #4:

What impact are these challenges having on your business right now?

QUESTION #5:

Let’s say it’s one year from now. Looking back, how would you feel having accomplished all of your goals?

    I like this and I’ll use it as well (save it in a text file).

    I don’t even have those up yet (most likely because my site isn’t up yet), but I think it’s fantastic.

    With this, I could actually start crafting a business. As you know, I’ve been coding for years and gotten lots of valuable experience. But the one thing I didn’t do is think up very specific business goals.

    But then I guess, if you don’t plan to earn a particular amount of money, what would make you go out of your way to get it? heh
