How to be a Boss Babe and Crush your Goals
Here are 5 steps on how to be a total Boss Babe! It’s time to crush your goals, reach that financial freedom, start that business or that blog, become a social media influencer whatever you want…it’s time. So buckle your seatbelt because we’re about to get real here.
Step 1 to accomplishing your goals
Write your goals down!
You have goals, but they’re not going to become anything if they’re just sitting in the back of your head all day. They’re taking a vacation back there! You have got to write those suckers down!
Make your goal(s) visible and tangible so you can see them every day and get pumped about working towards them. This is going to make them so much more real, and present than just occasionally thinking about them.
Some good ways to manifest your goals are to 1. grab a pen and a paper and write everything down 2. Make yourself a vision board, these are powerful visual reminders to stay focused on what you want most (and they’re a lot of fun to make).
After you write a list or make some visual out of your goal write an action plan. Create a simple or an in-depth step by step action plan of how you want to achieve your goal.
But often go over your action plan, adjust it accordingly so that you can one day find success with it.
Start taking baby steps
What is something you can do each day to get you closer to your dream becoming a reality? Get in a routine which will push you forward towards your goal. If you want to be a successful blogger then set a weekly schedule.
Tuesday: Content creation
Wednesday: Publish content
Thursday: Learn something new
If it helps to be accountable to someone (realize you are accountable to yourself! Don’t deprive yourself of what you want most by being lazy) or have someone you can report to and talk your goals over with. Personally, I keep a business journal that I report to. I outline what I need to do for the day or week, and write notes to myself on things I need to focus on the next day. Since I’ve started doing this my productivity has gone through the roof, and I’m a lot more organized.

You heard me Uncomfortable. Great things aren’t found in your comfort zone. You have to be willing to push your limits and really start doing the things that you’ve been too afraid to do. And yes it’s going to be scary at first and you are going to feel like a fish out of water. But that is how you are going to grow and see results. If you’re having a hard time with this step go back to step 2 change up your action plan and ask yourself these questions:
“What is holding you back? What could you do different to be more efficient?”
Then practice step 2. Take baby steps.
For me, it was the fact that I was literally too comfortable. I’d get home from my regular 9-5 job be totally exhausted and end up just cuddling up on my couch Scrolling through Pinterest. And I wasn’t doing anything for my dreams or goals that I so desperately wanted to achieve.
So my resolution was to move my computer and work stuff into our spare room where we have a desk. And I got a lot more work done because, I work best at a desk, and I can focus better. I’m not just at home chilling on the couch without having to worry about reporting to anyone. It was just “me time” at that point. When in fact being comfortable was robbing me of being able to hone in on my goals and make something of them.
What is holding you back? What if you were to set up that meeting with a potential client, start your vlog (with nothing but your iPhone), or take a chance on making an investment? My challenge to you is to find your weak points, what makes you queasy when you think about your goal? How can you change that weakness and harness it so that it becomes a strength?
Step 4 is incredibly crucial
Don’t ever give up.
Do not get discouraged. Life is tough but my dear so are you, it’s time to kick your life into gear and take charge. Everyone is going to have setbacks, but what matters is that you get back up, and you throw another punch. Believe that you are a Boss Babe and you will be. You’ll be able to turn your weaknesses into strengths by trying, and not giving up.
Get rid of your time wasters, and distractions
What are the things in your daily life that are wasting your time? These could be anything that keeps you from being productive such as apps on your phone, social media, TV shows, etc. We are bombarded every day with new ways to distract ourselves. The trick is being self-aware and being able to realize that Candy Crush is sucking up hours of your day just trying to get to the next level (And it’s doing nothing for you!).
Do yourself a favor, get rid of game apps on your phone, and other distractions. You will feel so much freer, and like you have a lot more time to achieve your goals.
It’s time to invest in yourself. Decide what is worth your time and what isn’t.
