Every year I make plans to accomplish important tasks.  By limiting my goals to three I hope to increase my chance of achieving these goals.

Here are my goals for 2017

  • Simplify:  consolidate financial accounts and do business with fewer companies.
  • Debt:  Reduce outstanding debt to less than $150,000.
  • Spending:  Spend less on vacations and entertainment.

  1. I love that you are so transparent about your goals. Like you, I am also a mystery shopper. I've set goals but never really displayed them for the world to see. You've inspired me to do so!

  2. Christine,

    Publishing my goals for the world to see keeps me accountable to them. In person I don't even refer to it as a goal anymore, but rather something that is going to happen. For example, the other day I ran into the founder of the software company where I used to work. He asked me what I was up to these days, and I told him that by the end of the summer I would be buying another rental property.

    It's a small thing, but I didn't say "I plan to" or "My goal is." I said "I will be." There's no way I'm going back on what I said now!

  3. For your international trip, consider Costa Rica. I export consumer goods there. I carry things Americans, Canadians and other ex pats and Ticos want to buy at a price. Usually pays for my airfare.

    1. I subscribe to a newsletter that an entrepreneur in Ecuador publishes. He posted about bringing goods along with you when you travel, similar to what you said. Just curious how you find out what to bring and where to unload it when you get there. I'm all about covering my expenses this way.
