2012 Goals

2012 Goals And Perspectives

Before telling you what I want to achieve on the upcoming 2012, what my goals are and where I’m headed to, we need to look back and see what happened in 2011 and put things into perspective.

Did I meet my previous goals?

Did I come in short?

Was it a good year for me?

These are just a few of the many questions everybody (including you) should be answering right now and decide if the outcome was good or bad.

A positive attitude always helps us out to keep the right mindset, yes.

However, we should be careful with this belief…

If we actually know it was a bad year for us and we fail to accept it, then we’re preparing ourselves for failure once again.

That’s normally called denial.

This is very common between those who somehow never manage to “make it”.

Super short and simple way to explain this:

How can you fix something that’s not broken?

It is always smart to give yourself a pat in the back even if you just managed to accomplish a few of your plans but don’t fall for the “I did great” kind of thinking, particularly when it’s not true.

This is a business, we’re grown ups.

You’re not on that juniors baseball team anymore, a “you did great son” when you actually didn’t, is not going to help you in any way with your Internet Marketing career, so be honest with yourself.

I rather take a harsh but honest advice that actually helps me, than a fictitious “amazing job” that is not going to lead me anywhere.

How To Fix What You Failed To Accomplish

  1. Make a list of the stuff that worked and what didn’t.
  2. Outline a plan to dominate the aspects that you succeeded at.
  3. Create a second plan to convert your misses into hits and focus primarily on these.

Always remember:

“You are as strong as your weakest link.

2011: Plans

I did not plan anything formally because I didn’t actually had a plan to follow in the first place (bad move) but these were a few of the goals I had in consideration:

  • Define a premium wordpress theme and stick with it
  • Work at Internet Marketing for a full year until hitting 5K a month (free of expenses)
  • Start working as an online consultant in addition to what I do offline
  • Do not hesitate to buy services, even if I feel I don’t need them right now
  • Try to be as good as I can and always aim for perfection
  • Become an authority on the Internet Marketing niche

2011: Recap

I did succeed at some of the goals, I failed in others but it is all good because I finally not only think I’m in total control, I feel I can do whatever I want now.

  • After trying out the whole database of free wordpress themes, I decided to go with the Thesis theme
  • I ended up WAY below hitting 5K a month but as I wasn’t even selling something, I don’t consider this a failure
  • Working online or offering my services, it would be having a JOB online, I’m not looking for that
  • I bought many services, even some that I haven’t used so this is a “oh well whatever” outcome or not a good one
  • Aiming for perfection, not a good thing as I managed to do a lot more in one month than six months of trying to get things perfect first
  • Did not become an Internet Marketing authority, changing that goal for something that brings happiness instead

2012: Plans

Ever heard the phrase “baby steps” before?

Or “you have to learn how to walk before you can run“?

Whenever you’re creating your plans, stick to achievable goals.

Otherwise, you’re going to be set for failure again.

So without any further ado, here are some of my Internet Marketing Goals For 2012:

  • Create an Internet Marketing product (my first one) for newbies getting started but NOT in the ‘how to make money online‘ niche
  • Create a membership site in the guitar training niche for Spanish speakers (already got the domain for this)
  • Offer at least one product on the Warrior Forum as a WSO (warrior special offer)
  • Publish at least one different product on these marketplaces (clickbank, e-junkie, paydotcom) just to get the hang out of it and how do they work
  • Keep building my list of subscribers, not aiming for a total number, aiming for complete awesomeness with them
  • Stick to what works, get rid of what doesn’t
  • Build a few micro niche sites which I will write in detail about them, right here on MarketingWithSergio.com
  • Start outsourcing what I don’t feel I can do better myself
  • Move out to an apartment which will become my office and recording studio as well
  • Travel around the world with my girlfriend before deciding to say goodbye to “not married” life
  • Changing the way I write and make everything a bit cleaner, also much shorter
  • Going from a concept idea to an actual site, lightning fast!
  • Creating a Getting Started section on the blog
  • Many more to come

I know it seems like it’s a lot but take into consideration that we’re talking a full year here.

If you really check it out, it shouldn’t be that crazy to accomplish yet there is some hard work involved as I have never done anything like this before.

A Sneak Peek of the Upcoming Posts

  • Special gift for December 25th
  • Completely transparent Income/Investment no BS video (PayPal & AlertPay)
  • Reviews of the best marketing training programs I took on 2011, both free and paid
  • Currently accepting suggestions for 2012!

Getting Prepared for Success

To make things a bit simpler, I got armed to my teeth for this year.

Got my first internet marketing mentor, bought my way in for higher level training and decided to go all-in with this Internet Marketing Adventure for the 2012.

Many bloggers are starting to say “Merry Christmas” already, meaning they’re not going to publish any more articles until January comes.

To me, it’s going to be quite the opposite.

I’m going to take the time to really plan things out and if I need to tell you something, even if it’s right on the time Santa is coming down your chimney, I will hit the publish button anyway.

Now it’s YOUR Turn!

If you already published your 2012 goals, hit me up with a comment so I can go and check them out.

Take care and Merry Christmas in case I don’t see you until past 25! ;-)

    It’s been awhile since I’ve fired off a blog post and I thought this topic of goals was a great idea….

    That is until I got an email from you today saying you have a new blog post about goals. Man you totally crushed it and forced me to delete what little I had written about it. This is exactly the reaction you want from people so do not take it as a negative, you did or said something that far outshined what I had planned. Good news is that it forces me to step up my game and my readers will get better content.

    You already know I’m a huge fan of your blog even if we disagree on some of our ideas and methods. Keep up the great work Sergio in my mind you’re already a super star. I look forward to what you do in 2012.

      Thanks Justin,

      I’m really honored and humbled by your words.

      Your latest video was beyond amazing as not only you taught me something new but also an invaluable asset on how to deal with those uncomfortable situations we encounter on every day life.

      If I had to do anything to make you go the extra mile and record something so great, then by all means I’m happy to have published this post then!

      I also believe it’s okay to have our own ways to do things because in the end, we are part of the same community.

      That select group of individuals who are genuinely interested in helping out the newcomers find their own voice in Internet Marketing.

      You know the saying: “All ways lead to Rome” and I hope we can meet there (in successville) really soon!

      Thank you for all the support Justin, it really means a lot to me besides, who the heck doesn’t likes being called a “super star”? ;-)

      You totally rock man, I really appreciate you, thanks again and let’s speak soon, take care!

    Hi Sergio,

    It sounds like you have a good list of goals for the new year! I had a long list for this year and I ended up editing them along the way because I discovered new directions that I wanted to take with most of them. Some of them I will add to my list of things to do for this upcoming year – it is amazing how fast times goes by! I think that one important key to following through with the goals is to create a step by step plan for each. Then we can tackle one step at a time and it is a less daunting task. I’ve been doing that this month and most days I am excited about how much I’ve accomplished that day!

      Hey Stacy,

      First of all thank you so much for leaving your first comment here, really appreciate it!

      And second of all, the technique you are currently using is a very well known strategy to convert a very hard task into an easy to achieve one as you said.

      Some people who are amazing at organizing their time, will plan an entire year, then divide that into big chunks, then they start pinpointing everything down until they just have these small tasks to complete on each day for the entire year!

      I honestly couldn’t do that! LOL

      But I can certainly get one task, divide that into segments and assign those tasks a time and date to just follow the plan afterwards, seems easy, sounds simple and it IS super effective!

      The sad part is that many people are lazy and won’t even go through the ‘hassle’ of dividing their tasks into smaller pieces.

      Thank you so much for adding more value to the article with your comment, looking forward to speak often and hope all of your goals for 2012 are met like a boss, take care! ;-)

      PS. I just remembered an analogy for coding a program.

      It’s the same thing, you go by chunks of code that make a very specific task, you don’t actually program the code from scratch but I’ll leave that for another post! LOL

    Hi Sergio,
    This should be the template for anyone who is considering writing an end-of-year wrap up and looking ahead to the next 12 months blog post.
    You really have the best looking blog I have seen.
    I actually spent a couple of minutes just looking at the way you have laid out this post before I started reading it.
    It looks fantastic.
    Your goals are all great too in as much as they have specific measurable outcomes so you can be in no doubt when you have achieved them or when you have failed to do so.
    None of the wishy-washy “I want to be a successful marketer” or “I want to make a lot of money online” rubbish so many people trot out.
    One of your goals made me cry out in horror though…
    Changing the way you write…don’t do that.
    Make everything much shorter…don’t do that either.
    Finally I love the way you address the whole issue of positive mindset and how you remind people that being in denial about ones failings is no way to set oneself up for success in the 12 months ahead.
    Patrick.
    P.S I have just looked at my end of year wrap up I have scheduled for this time next week…compared to what you have written it now looks decidedly amateurish.

      Wow man, what an amazing comment.

      I think everyone can wish to be something or to have something.

      It is way different to say “I want to help people out” instead of “how can I help you?“, seems like a subtle difference yet it is an abysmal one.

      On writing much shorter articles, I thought about being more straight to the point since people nowadays just skim through content anyway.

      The attention span has been decreasing a lot with time (this is already scientifically proven) and writing in English while attempting to not murder the language, is indeed a very hard task for me and makes delivering my message extra harder too.

      I can certainly trim a lot of the fat on my articles but I think that would make me “sound” like a robot.

      Instead of that, I am genuinely taking the extra time and efforts to explain something and offer a little bit of my experiences, because:

      1. I could learn more from others (by your suggestions on the thread comments) and
      2. I could prevent others for making the same mistakes I made, which I believe it is something always valuable.

      So, I don’t know, it may be a problem of proper writing structure as I have never taken writing lessons before but that’s something I have to work on it myself.

      The denial thing, may have resonated with a few, only because it is true.

      I did that myself plenty of times, thinking everything was OK when I actually knew it wasn’t OK and realized if I kept thinking that way, then it would never be OK (which was even scarier than just accepting it).

      Last but not least important, no wrap up is better or worse than others, each of everyone as individuals that we are, may have complete different goals and ways to do things.

      If we don’t have a set of goals, then we just can’t tell if we’re getting anywhere closer or farther away from our target.

      It is that important to have them sorted out and don’t put any pressure on you just because there’s the new year coming, you can plan your goals any time of the year man.

      Patrick, I really appreciate your comment, time and encouraging words, I know that this extra push I have to make things right once and for all, wouldn’t be possible without the support you have provided from the beginning.

      Keep up the good work man and stick around because the 2012 is definitely our year, have a great day mate! ;-)

        Hey Sergio
        I totally agree about people, in general, having ever shorter attention spans these days but if an article is compelling enough then this will not prevent people from taking the time to read a long one.
        Some people will always skim articles, others will read every word.
        Your writing style is your writing style. You really don’t need to change a thing.
        P.

    Reply Reply December 21, 2011

    I think overall you did pretty good Sergio even if you didn’t have a plan. I say that because that’s exactly where I was not too terribly long ago. I was just pulled in so many different directions that I didn’t actually know what I wanted to do. But as I researched and learned, that’s when everything started to fall into place for me. I think in the end it all worked out rather well.

    I don’t write an end of the year summary post so you won’t see me listing my goals and things. I usually have my mind set in a particular direction and then I just go for it. I’m really excited for what 2012 will bring and it sounds like you are as well.

    I have no doubt that you’ll accomplish everything you have on your list for the up coming year. I see you as a real go getter and you have really learned a lot and come a long way. That’s what it takes and since you’ll be working with a mentor, you’ll be on the fast track in no time at all.

    Best of luck to you my friend and have a very Merry Christmas! Stay safe if you’re going to be traveling.

    Check in with you again soon!

      Thank you Adrienne!

      I also think that the 2011 outcome was kind of acceptable from certain point of view but I didn’t want to say so on the article since I don’t want to recommend that not having a plan, can actually be a plan sometimes (if it makes any sense) LOL

      What you did, is the formula to make amazing progress:

      1. Research
      2. Learn
      3. Apply!

      The problem with this is that many people (sadly, me included) sometimes get trapped in ever “learning mode” and it is very hard to get out of there because then you have the “oh I’m waiting until everything is perfect” justification and you never do anything because you’re actually doing nothing by not applying what you learn on the first place!

      I remember being dead mad with myself when I first found out that the Article Directories were Google slapped since I was studying for months on how to be an amazing writer, only to find out that it was pointless after the slap. (there’s a buzz going on that article directories are worth it again)

      I’m glad that you’re already on the other side of the fence (with the 3% Internet Marketers) and if you are already a social media rockstar, I really can’t imagine what are you going to achieve on the upcoming 2012, I can’t wait to see what you do though!

      Thanks again for your best wishes Adrienne, the traveling part will take place several months ahead but I’m really looking forward to it.

      And about working with my mentor, I can tell you I haven’t made one cent yet, I thought he was going to make the money for me! (just kidding LOL)

      As soon as there are direct results from working with my mentor, this is the first place I’m going to talk about it!

      Speak soon and Merry Christmas in case I don’t see you before the 25, take care! ;-)

    Sergio,
    Very inspiring man.
    Few people actually write their goals down, less evaluate them from year to year.
    and out of them, who has the courage to actually post it for public consumption.
    Nice to read your evaluation and honesty. Makes me look a little closer at my past year and what I need to have written down for the new year.

    I agree with Patrick, your writing style is you, and let it be that way.
    That is who I want to read about.

    Look forward to reading 2012 from you next year at this time.

      Hey Drew,

      Thank you for your first comment here and your awesome support, really appreciate it man!

      If somebody asked me to talk about my goals or flaws a year ago, I think I’d certainly just neglect to do so or I’d sugar coat the reality as I could.

      I don’t believe (and never will) in the “fake it, ’till you make it” thing, so now I’m just saying it how it is.

      I did hit rock bottom at some point and I understood that I’m more comfortable being as open as I can, instead of just avoiding the reality.

      If you stick around the site, you’ll be able to see a lot more about it as I have some plans to publish a few things on this subject to close the 2011 like a boss!

      About changing my “writing style” I think I may stick to it as this is the only way I know how to write anyway.

      Take care and thanks for stopping by and your great comment, have an amazing day my friend and hope you have an über cool 2012 as well!

    I read all your goals……I only had one to begin with, started a google blog 1 year ago to encourage a younger sister to pay attention to her treatment for diabetes…….Failure still eating like a pig then diets for a week…….since I live in Tn. and she lives in Florida hard to keep her in line!

    Then got interested in Internet marketing…..won’t detail it all, but definitely do not recommend Ebay and their dropshipper friends got a website at FatCow
    Then discovered WordPress and Host Gator…
    I put up about 12 wordpress sites, out of 10 that were active I had 8 rated under 698,000 in the world by stuffgate which lists the top 1 million sites in the world supposedly.
    however my Alexa was always 1…,
    then I started improving them and managed to move them to ratings like 1,223,489 you get the idea….!

    My problem is not yours, I bought the JT coaching program to learn ftp, a little html and his WSO for the technical things I need to learn….I’m technologically deficient… but I disgress again
    My Goals are taped on the wall above my monitor…..

    I printed an email I received from one Zech Smith. One page long and as he states, this is all you need to do to be successful and make money online
    It is titled: The Essentials
    #1. Take action
    #2. Take it ONE thing at a time (and complete it before moving on)
    #3. Get used to a ton of email
    #4. You’ll need some things: website, paypal, clickbank, aweber
    #5. The customer is Alway right
    #6. You need to learn to use HTML and FTP properly

    Each of these headings had 3 to 4 lines of text explanation but you can get the idea….one thing he did mention….don’t buy programs etc. I should have paid attention.

    Would like you to go look at this sales video at skipperworks the link to it is on the page listed above privacy page (my listing for pages on sidebar since theme is for 1 page only)
    and listen to the video until the end….
    gets somewhat specific there about what is being offered……There are several of these Mobile programs listed on my site this one is not a post but on a Page Mobile Cash

    I do believe from what I have been reading and watching lately that mobile apps are the future…NOW! I have a nephew in Chicago who just did the creative work for someone else on a new app called Shoebox 1000 memories it is now on iTunes….
    back to the mobile apps people: some are just about creating apps and selling them to local businesses to contact their customers eg: restaurants, cleaner etc.
    This particular program sounds interesting, of course the spiel is the same (I’m a little cynical had to do those sell the benefits courses when I worked in finance) heavy emphasize on the Big benefit $$$$$$!
    my problem with anything mobile is that where I live there is no service!

    Also, if you visit scroll down and click on the Free Membership Article Writing Assistant RED Credit Card and go look at his site….very clean and organized and free….has an interactive (think php) form to use to write articles and another for emails.

    Sorry about the the lenght, but as soon as I learn how to do a plugin or whatever, I want to add a “blog” or membership forum to one of my sites. I’ve never sold a thing, but get comments with questions and would be better separated a little from the jumble I have!

      Hi Cararta,

      First of all, no need to apologize for any lengthy comments here my friend, in fact I appreciate the fact that you took all that time to write as detailed as you could.

      And second, even though you’re right about your problem being yours and not mine, that doesn’t means we can’t help you (many of my readers have amazing free trainings on how to make money online) I’m pretty sure they are going to love to offer their trainings to you here.

      For a quick overview:

      It seems to me that you already know plenty of stuff (domains, hosting, wordpress, alexa rankings, html, ftp, etc) but are still in need to know how to connect the dots properly.

      Mobile applications are hot right now but that doesn’t means you need to dive into that market either.

      The program you’re mentioning is based on CPA marketing and I don’t think that’s the right place to start particularly for any marketing newcomer.

      Besides if you close the page two times, you also get a $10 discount on the price, that’s already a red flag for me to NOT buy that product.

      If I don’t know the marketer, I’d google his name to find out more about him and his trainings/products and get an overall idea based on reviews and the buzz around his/her name.

      It is very unlikely (0% chance) for me to buy an offer just from a sales page without not even knowing the marketer’s name or his/her past and/or background.

      A quick way to ruin a marketer’s reputation is by promoting something you’re not currently using, I would advice that you first buy or ask for a review copy before actually promoting something to your readers, that way you increase your trust level.

      For your immediate action steps with what you have:

      1. Change the wordpress theme to something more recent
      2. Unclutter it as much as you can
      3. Include social media links
      4. If your site is going to be about how to set up a wordpress site I strongly suggest you get some training on the topic and apply that to your blog as well
      5. Only leave offers related to WordPress, Blogging, Writing, don’t promote unrelated products
      6. I would have got a .com domain name instead of an .info domain name
      7. Many more but these may put you on track quicker.

      As a JT student, you were supposed to create a product, can I ask what happened with that?

      Thanks for your comment and looking forward to speak soon Cararta, I hope this helps, take care! ;-)

    Hi Sergio,
    Reading about your list of goals for the coming year made me excited again for my own goals. The ones I started this year is still ongoing and I’m looking at next year as an extension for my unfinished tasks.
    Like Stacy and Adrienne, I’ve also been pulled in new and different directions. And I’ll keep on exploring and trying out different ideas until I find the ones I would really focus on.
    Have a wonderful holiday and good luck for the new year!

      Hey Theresa,

      I’m glad you got excited as it was super fun for me to share my goals with you guys here.

      I don’t see any problem in carrying goals from the 2011 to the 2012, I’m doing that too! ;-)

      Also I wouldn’t worry about trying to find exactly THE goal for 2012. You can plan out stuff as you go and the fact that you’re able to tweak directions on the go, is even better.

      Just do what you feel is right as long as you keep yourself busy and you’ll find out what your path is, sooner than you think.

      Thanks for leaving me such a great first comment, and the best wishes.

      Take care and I hope all your goals are reached for the upcoming 2012, have a great day and let’s speak soon! ;-)

    Your post seems to have triggered a lot of lengthy comments Sergio which can’t be bad. A post that gets that sort of reaction is a great one. You have a gift for writing that’s for sure and writing in a language that is not your own can’t be easy. I wonder how long you take to write them and respond to the comments?

    It certainly sounds a though you have a lot planned but as you say you have a whole year and I wish you every success with your projects.

    As for my goals you have already visited my blog and left your comment! It just remains for me to wish you a great Christmas and a very happy, healthy and successful New Year.

      Hey Sandy,

      Thank you so much for your kind comments!

      Answering to comments is very easy.

      It is the actual process of writing a new article that it’s really hard for me and it does take me a while to do so.

      I think this is due to not having the habit of writing or blogging per se, so I hope this gets a bit easier with time.

      Thank you for the nice wishes on my projects, I really hope I can live up to the expectations and not let anyone down with my goals.

      I do know what your goals are and I have to say I can’t wait to start watching how you completely rock them out!

    Thanks for your encouraging words. I have learned a lot since March, 2011 when I installed my very first WP site. Do Need to FOCUS……

    Here is a help for you….maybe.

    Regarding writing a new article….how to make it easy.
    I loved journalism….so here goes.
    1. Pick your topic
    2. Decide what points you want to make….we always used the big W’s
    who, what, when, where, why and to What extent. (unless editorial no opinion) Just the Facts!

    3. Make an outline, either use an editor or a plain piece of paper.
    4. Topic is your headline

    First paragraph explain What topic is…..

    Second paragraph Maybe Who is using what

    Third paragraph When to use what

    fourth paragraph Why to use what

    Fifth paragraph Then the biggie How to successfully use What (expanding Why….benefit)
    and what you think the results will be especially if you are targeting an item to sell.

    SOMETHING IMPORTANT, If it is something I need to learn, I search around, highlight and copy onto notepad and use my research as a base….no copying…rephrase in own words…….makes life easier….have tried some of the article barns, but they have a lot have “spun” gobble de gook. sometime buy $5.00 wso or others that have what I need.! If you go here there is an article I wrote that somewhat follows my guide lines except it overlows into editorial…http://fightdiabetes2.com/how-to-lower-your-blood-sugar-without-medications/

      Hey Cararta, thank you for all the recommendations, I really appreciate them as well as your time!

      Hope you’re doing good and remember, focus is just as important as the rest of the formula to succeed.

    What an awesome post, Sergio!! You have really inspired me and blew me away with your goals for 2012…is your girlfriend reading this? LOL

    I was planning on laying out my goals before the New Year – still have another week yet ;-) But, mine are no where near yours – wow! What a list. You have thought really hard on this and I think you have come a LONG way since earlier this year. I remember when you told me you were going to stop blogging and am so happy you re-considered!!

    I wish you all the best and I KNOW you will succeed – you have built up quite a following here on your blog alone, which is awesome!! Keep at it and I am looking forward to all your new products.

    Keep up the great work, you are doing a fantastic job!!

    Merry Christmas my friend – Hope Santa is good to you ;-)

      Hey Linda!

      I hope she doesn’t in case I can’t do it! LOL haha j/k

      She does comes from time to time but I don’t monitor her activity here. I ask sometimes if she had read the latest article but that’s about it.

      You say I inspired you, well I want to say the same back to you and the rest of my readers.

      I would NOT be doing this if I didn’t know I have an amazing wall of support behind me, the one you provide me with every single day of the year.

      I try to reciprocate this to everyone else too because if you think you’re alone, everything gets so much harder so why not offer a helping hand?

      Remember that no goal is bigger or smaller than any other, just plan out what you want to achieve and go for it!

      Break a huge goal into small achievable things and you’ll feel AMAZING as you go out happily crossing them out over the year, that’s what works with me.

      And finally, last but not least, thank you for your kind comments Linda, the blog wouldn’t be what it is if it wasn’t for people like you.

      All the credit goes out to the people who leave their amazing comments here and encourage me to keep playing the game.

      See you on the 3% side of the pie for this 2012 Linda, all the best on your goals and Merry Christmas!

      PS. Congratulations on recording and posting your first video on YouTube, that was EPIC my friend, hope to watch many more! ;-)

    Hey Sergio! Feliz Navidad! First of all, Awesome post as always! I agree with Patrick, DO NOT Change the Way You Write, it’s what makes You, You! As he said, if it is compelling enough, adds value, people will take the time to read it. Love the way you wrote this, nice to see you aren’t kicking yourself for not reaching all your goals and GREAT aspirations for next year! Wishing all the best for a joyous holiday season! Don’t work too hard. :)

      Hey Jocelyn,

      Well I guess the writing style will have to stay and I thought nobody liked it… LOL thank you!

      I think it’s way easier to focus our energy into fixing the things we did wrong instead of just feeling sorry or frustrated for not reaching a goal, right?

      Thank you again for the amazing comment and kind wishes.

      I hope you have an amazing day today in company of your loved ones and that you reach every single goal in 2012.

      Feliz Navidad y Próspero Año Nuevo Jocelyn, take care and speak soon! ;-)

    Feliz Navidad y Prospero Ano Nuevo to you too! (I don’t know how to put the stuff Tildes (sp) on top) LOL Wishing you all the best and enjoy your time with your family as well!

    Nice thing about goals is we can always “tweak” them a LITTLE bit, and if we need to extend the date to reach them, that’s okay too. HOWEVER, we need to get what we want out into the Universe and then FOCUS and TAKE action to achieve them! :)

      Amen, I like your thinking Jocelyn!!

      Thank you once again for the kind comments, I wish you nothing but the best in return too and I hope that I can maintain focus and keep taking action as well for this upcoming year.

      Let’s speak soon and hope Santa is good to you too my friend! ;-)

    Hi Sergio,

    My main goal and focus for 2011 was to start my blog and also create several money streams. 2011 was more about learning and failing in some areas but 2012 will be all about learning from past mistakes and moving forward.

    take care…
