  1. My goals for 2011: I intend to make enough money that we can stop worrying about the financial fall out from my hubby's ongoing health battle.

    I will have a rock solid plan and roadmap that I work and follow. I will enjoy fantastic tangible and measurable results in the form of great income, great clients, fun interesting work, and an expanding client base. I'll clearly define my niches.
    I'll feel great about my work, and my accomplishments.

  2. My goal is to launch my resume writing business and website!

    PersephoneKDecember 7, 2010 at 12:45 pm

  3. O.K., I've done my learning. My confidence is soaring. Now I'm ready to commit to be all I can be by the end of 2011 with more money in the bank than I've ever had. But most important, to move to Ecuador (where I already own an apartment) totally self-sufficient without being slavely dependent on my measly Social Security checks.

    The plan and roadmap are laid out. Focus will prevail!

  4. By this date in 2011, I will be able to share my success story with my copywriting business. A part of that story--financial increase, along with the life balance that allows me time & resources for the people and things that matter.

    I've already begun by writing my goals & placing them strategically before me. My goals planner includes action steps (that I'm already beginning to take). Wisdom is key, so I've also purposed to attend every copywriting workshop/teleseminar I can in 2011.

    IngridDecember 7, 2010 at 3:24 pm

  5. To hone my reading skills so that I can read one book per week during 2011 and do some long overdue sharpening of my saw.

    LanaDecember 7, 2010 at 4:07 pm

  6. Get at least 2 of my books written, video taped, broken out into audio and text. Also have the Web site hot and making money so that by June of 2011 we will feel secure as we become fulltime RV'rs and begin our life on the highway.

  7. By February 1, 2011, I will have my B2B Copywriting website on line. I will then acquire enough B2B clients and write enough copy, specializing in web content and white papers, to secure a gross income of $50,000 by the end of the year.

  8. My goal is to write a novel and send it out for publication!

    ElaineBDecember 7, 2010 at 4:57 pm

  9. I have so many goals for 2011, it's hard to name just one! However, my biggest, most important goal--I will agree with Mindy Tyson McHorse and Rebecca Matter on this one--is to get my website where I want it by February 1, 2011, to showcase my new B2B marketing copywriting business. My goal is to have the main five pages fully complete by January 1, 2011, and by February have samples of white papers, case studies, and special reports in an online portfolio.

  14. My major goal for 2011 is that I finally decide on, focus, and confirm, my niche (I'm 99.9% there). I am designing, developing, and completing my marketing strategy and materials for that new "niche" division of my business; it is launched, and my client base is built and solidified to meet my income goal.

    Ann Jordan-MillsDecember 7, 2010 at 8:38 pm

    Guest (Donna Kaluzniak)December 7, 2010 at 10:29 pm

  16. My main goal for 2011 is to launch my B2B copywriting career and be on pace by the end of the year to make the leap to full time freelance copywriter. After completing my website by the end of this year, I plan to turn my efforts to marketing my business with a goal of having my first paying client by the end of February.

    Jim LedinghamDecember 7, 2010 at 10:56 pm

  17. My goal is to write and publish a book that I first started working on about 6 years ago.

    Guest (Bob Maucher)December 7, 2010 at 11:40 pm

  18. My achievements for 2011 will be: To graduate college with my degree in Philosophy, at 40 years old. I will figure out how to, and then obtain, better paying clients for my writing. I will also branch out and launch some websites for passive income. Ultimately when my income increases I'd like to write from different places and see the country! Lastly, I get to see my daughter graduate high school and start college! That's one goal completed :)

    Guest (Mike Carlson)December 8, 2010 at 1:12 am

  19. My 2011 writing goal: Quit beating around the bush and do it already!
    *I will commit to one niche. (Gasp!)
    *I will choose one spec assignment.
    *I will stare at the blank screen until enough words flow out of me to create a sentence.
    *I will stick with that last idea until this assignment is complete.
    *Finally, I will use this piece as a springboard to a paying client.
    To achieve my goal, I will:
    Find and join a writing group.
    Regularly contribute and support the writers in my group.

    Guest (RamonaCinTN)December 8, 2010 at 5:38 am

  20. One goal I want to achieve is to host a live workshop helping small business owners write their own sales copy quickly!

    Guest (Harrisonamy)December 8, 2010 at 6:15 am

  21. The goal I have set for 2011 is to add 200 pages to my website Loose Leaf Tea Spy.

    Plan is to write at least 4 pages a week, which if accomplished will give me 216 pages

    One of the 4 could end up being an article for ezine.

    Ultimate goal to earn enough off the website to start a 2nd site, then say good-bye to my job.

    Liz CDecember 8, 2010 at 7:00 am

  22. My goal is to jumpstart my Internet Research business and finally complete AWAI's Six-Figure Copywriting course.

    The plan is to not only making good money from the Internet Research business, but to also develop healthy relationships with top notch copywriters so I can learn from them and be prepared to launch my own copywriting business by this time next year.

    Eric HammerDecember 8, 2010 at 7:19 am

  23. My goal for 2011 is to launch online my freelance Internet Research Specialist website with compelling content, clear navigation and relevant social media links.

    I am making steady progress towards making that goal a reality fairly soon!

    Gerard DelaneyDecember 8, 2010 at 7:56 am

  24. This is a two-part goal for 2011. It has to do with my entering the "second half" of my life and completely changing who I am and what I do. I WILL become a freelance B2B copywriter in this second half.

    So, what is my goal for '11? First, I will create a very successful money-making website of my own. My income goal target to hit within 2011 is $5000/month gross. This will come from misc ad revenues, and info products.

    I will leverage the success of my website and use pages, content, emails and special reports as writing samples and examples of demonstated ability in my B2B copywriting buisness.

    I want to complete five paid assignments for clients next year.

    Guest (DVanNuys)December 8, 2010 at 8:23 am

  25. Make my freelance income equal my employment income, opening the door for retirement from said employment.

    Mike LoSassoDecember 8, 2010 at 9:07 am

  26. I will finish the novel I started this year. I will develop and market myself as a writer of technical white papers.

    stewartmathmanDecember 8, 2010 at 9:27 am

  27. My goal for 2011 is to become a successful copywriter in the findraising area. I am using Michael Masterson's goal setting recommendations to set goals so I have a set plan for the year and month by month. I am excited to have a career I love while being able to give to others and help them improve their lives. I am greatful for all the opportunities that AWAI offers.

    Michelle DurhamDecember 8, 2010 at 9:32 am

  28. Two of my goals for 2011:
    1. Work ONLY with great clients; say “no” to wrong work.
    2. Make a habit of being outside my comfort zone.

    Karen KDecember 8, 2010 at 9:46 am

  29. I'd like to get my blood sugar number down to 100 by losing 25 pounds by March 2011.

  38. I've never been good at setting goals. Too ADHD I guess.

    However, I would aspire to complete one Spec assignment before the end of February 2011, and to complete a second Spec assignment by the end of March.

    I would also aspire to have been blessed to receive 3 new paid projects before the end of May 2011.

    Whew...half the year a complete success -- Now on to the next half! =)

    My MAJOR goals for 2011: 1. Learn how to not let "life" get in the way of my goals, 2. Learn better time management skills, 3. Get paid to be a copywriter and (I'm really working on this one) 4. Attend the November Bootcamp @ AWAI.
    My best to everyone else in achieving your goals!!!

    Tom Picciano - The Copywriting ScientistDecember 8, 2010 at 4:07 pm

  41. My goal for 2011 is to fearlessly give myself--and the gift I have been entrusted with--away.

    Guest (AMLDDouglas)December 8, 2010 at 4:10 pm

  42. Launch my freelance B2B business by March 1, 2011.

  43. I anticipate landing two clients for paid assignments by January 26, 2011 (birthday present) with fees totaling $6,000, and simultaneously handing my boss my letter of resignation (already typed!) making my last day ever at a J-O-B February 9, 2011!

    I will complete and mail to clients at least six additional Spec Challenges and have completed AWAI programs in my chosen marketing niches (Self-Help & Health) by March 4, 2011...

    and I'm just getting started!

    Jerry BuresDecember 8, 2010 at 5:33 pm

  44. Update my web site as a WordPress-based web site using lessons from Nick Usborne’s courses. Create 2 “buzz pieces” besides portfolio work to show off my skills and offer them from my web site. Attract business from bigger businesses that already understand the value of Direct Response Marketing. Continue regular goal-setting with the Mastermind Group started by 2 AWAI-trained colleagues; the three of us meet regularly by conference call every two weeks to help us stay on track.

    Nancy in MinnesotaDecember 8, 2010 at 6:12 pm

  45. My goal for 2011 is to secure at least one B2B client by March 31, 2011 (although I'm secretly hoping to get more than one by then, but 1 is the initial goal!)

    Guest (Steve R )December 8, 2010 at 11:06 pm

    SidDecember 9, 2010 at 1:01 am

  48. My goals for 2011 are to become an excellent Master Copywriter, to more than replace my current income, to be proud of the work that I do and to enjoy all of the responsibilities and freedoms that are a part of Copywriting.

    LouiseDecember 9, 2010 at 8:22 am

  49. My first goal of 2011 is to make writing a priority. I will do this by writing for 6 hours a day, 4 days a week. One of those days will be spent working on my novel; one on my copywriting business; one on articles - both web and print; and one on marketing. I realize the journey is the destination and plan to enjoy every minute.

    Guest (Cindi)December 9, 2010 at 10:28 am

  50. My goal is to make a list of topics I can write about and devote at least one hour a day writing a "spec", so that I can use it as examples of my copywriting skills thereby overcoming my current problem of submitting examples of my work in bidding for new assignments from prospective clients. (Maybe AWAI can help with a few commonly asked for topics for assignments, just to get the juices flowing?). I need to start writing SOMETHING, or I will always lack the courage to put myself out there as a copywriter.

    Cato DeWDecember 9, 2010 at 11:20 am

  51. My 2011 goal isn't one goal, it is multiples. Each quarter I have outlined multiple goals, from building and writing more of my own information websites, to helping others and teaching others to do the same; recording my own hypnosis and meditation CD's; writing daily, or at least every few days, for a blog that is near and dear to my heart; and, to complete the writing for 3 books. One I am under contract for, one is a wellness book, and the other a novel. You'll see me at the top of the best seller lists before the new year is out!

    Wendy December 9, 2010 at 12:38 pm

  52. My goal for 2011 is make enough money from copywriting that it equals at least half of my income from my current job.

    Karen ADecember 9, 2010 at 3:02 pm

  53. The last four months have been working on the basics of launching my business. But starting January I'm going to be marketing like crazy.

    My goal for 2011 is to land clients (of course) and make $50,000.

    ctalbottDecember 9, 2010 at 3:31 pm

  54. For 2011, I will continue to have the 'guts' to pursue my dream. I will meet my 1st year goals defined in my five year plan. I hope to be kind as I earn my way into financial security.

    Guest (la traveling chica)December 9, 2010 at 3:35 pm

  55. My goal is to become a copywriter before Spring 2011. I am now working on two writing spec projects. I am excited about this career! It is wonderful to read about the success stories of new copywriters. I am determine to be a successful copywriter, too!

    Norma L WDecember 9, 2010 at 3:44 pm

  56. My goal for 2011 is to complete the copywriting program and build a steady stream of clients so big I will have to turn clients away because I am making so much money!

    Guest (Violet Meuter)December 9, 2010 at 4:47 pm

  59. My goal is to write copy for as many new clients as possible this year: to provide good service in a long relationship with each new client and to reach new limits of financial success - for them and for me.

    Thanks for asking!

    Guest (Donna Baier Stein)December 9, 2010 at 4:55 pm

  60. Second part of my goal is to have my novel FORTUNE published and to finish the new novel I am writing. THe overall goal is to be productive, committed, and successful with all the writing projects I do!

    Guest (Donna Baier Stein)December 9, 2010 at 5:03 pm

  61. My goal for 2011 is to re-focus on my freelance writing business and build it into the self-sufficient state it once was -- and then to go beyond into the freedom producing entity it was always intended to be!!!!

    Guest (Teresa Hall)December 9, 2010 at 5:05 pm

  62. I love goal setting and I have goals for each area of my life. A major goal for 2011 is to set up a new source of passive income that will compliment my current business. I am taking steps to create a membership website or monthly newsletter for my niche. I want to achieve this goal so that I will have more free time to spend with my family and 1 year old baby!

    Guest (Mike Snyder)December 9, 2010 at 5:08 pm

  63. My goal for 2011, more than any other, is to continue on the path of being a "dreaming doer". We all have dreams, but if we never act on them, that's all they will remain. I no longer refer to "someday when I..." Someday is here, the time is now, and every day is a gift to be unwrapped with gratitude and the confidence knowing that "I AM a copywriter". I am, I will, I can, and there's nothing that can stop my success, but me.

    AimeeDecember 9, 2010 at 5:10 pm

  64. After some consideration, I've decided to refine my goals. One goal still remains to summit two glaciated peaks this spring/summer. The other goes beyond earning six figures as a content marketing specialist. My goal is to become one of the top five content marketing strategists in the country! Oh, and this is for Rebecca... Go 'noles.

    SidDecember 9, 2010 at 5:14 pm

  65. My goal is to honor my commitment to "family time" and to generally enjoy life instead of putting work ahead of other priorities.

    MindyDecember 9, 2010 at 5:18 pm

  66. This year, I had a goal forced on me. I looked Death in the face and spit in his eye! Next year, my copywriting business is going to take off like a rocket. No more wishy-washy attempts at getting clients; I'm going all out. I have a niche picked out which should narrow the field I've been trying to cover and I'm ready to kick _ss! 2011 is the year I get out of debt and start socking the money away! Believe it or not, I'm glad I nearly died; it makes life so much clearer.

    jeanieDecember 9, 2010 at 5:21 pm

  67. Complete my AWAI courses by February 14th 2011 (Valentines Day) and have my Copywriting website on line and ready for clients. I will acquire a stream of steady clients and write enough copy, web content and white papers, to secure a gross income of $90,000 by the end of the year. This will allow me the freedom to purchase another RV and work while traveling the glorious USA.

    Guest (Dan Parsley)December 9, 2010 at 5:30 pm

  68. My goal is to achieve a steady flow of income so that I don't have to worry about if I'll have enough money to pay my bills and to occasionally enjoy myself. Also I don't want to be stuck with a boss that can make my life miserable. It seem every time I get an eight hour a day job I get stuck with a boss who has an emotional problem and needs make someone miserable so he can feel good about himself.

    EdithDecember 9, 2010 at 5:40 pm

  69. This is my year to make money while I sleep! E-book content creation here I come thanks to the cheerleading from Bob Bly and his AWAI wordsmith buddies. Newspaper writing will finally be a part-time job. I'm cracking into the self-development industry and getting paid to play. Thank you, Santa!

    Shannon at Raystorm CommDecember 9, 2010 at 6:08 pm

  83. My goal for 2011. To achieve success as a full-time copywriter, earning enough to leave the day job behind. I can see it, I can almost taste it -- and it's delicious! I'm just going to keep learning and writing and submitting until everything clicks. Then, I'll write some more...

    Guest (Barbara Anne Carson)December 9, 2010 at 9:29 pm

  84. I am using Michael Masterson's new book, The Pledge: Your Master Plan for an Abundant Life, as a blueprint to assist in my personal/professional reinvention. Newly divorced and determined to knock it out of the park as a web copywriter & branding specialist, my goal is to live a healthy & wealthy life leveraging my creativity and communication skills. This spring, I will use my experience & expertise to launch a coaching program for boomer women who want a successful business of their own.

  86. My monetary goal for 2011 is to be on a cash basis by the end of the year.I am improving in my copywriting skills each day and gaining confidence so I am completely confident I can meet that goal. A second goal is that I will have received payments for at least 15 addition to spec assignments, and my third is that my novel PERHAPS IN GOD'S LIFETIME will continue to sell as well as it is at present.Thanks for this opportunity to enter the contest.

    Guest (Maggie)December 9, 2010 at 11:23 pm

  87. My goal is to double my income from 3 sources: website copywriting work, coaching work, and "residual" income from books and joint ventures that will continue to feed my income with minimal effort. I plan to publish a "what works online" book in my niche market 1st Q 2011 no matter what! It's nearly done and would give me a wonderful platform as a web copywriting authority in that particular niche. Thanks to AWAI, I have a clear plan to make all this happen!!

    Guest (Pam Foster)December 9, 2010 at 11:44 pm

  88. It's January 31, 2011 and I'm elated because I've finally finished the Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting. The creative juices are flowing and I'm earning the big bucks. Life is grand.

    PHOMDecember 10, 2010 at 12:18 am

  89. My main goal for 2011 is to develop a solid plan and follow it without loosing focus. There will be many details in the plan, but mainly it will involve taking all the knowledge I have been accumulating in relation to internet marketing and copywriting and putting it into action. So really that's my goal in a nutshell for 2011: TAKE ACTION!!!

    sterneDecember 10, 2010 at 12:21 am

  90. 2011 is the year that:

    I WILL complete the B2B courses.

    I WILL get out of my comfort zone and start a B2B business.

    I AM amongst the best people in the world who can teach me how to achieve these goals and I WILL NOT let them down.

  93. I am committing to my art every day with a "Daily Skies" painting series for 2011, along with learning to market my work through a website, blog, I-phone app, and social media.

    Beth GensonDecember 10, 2010 at 8:23 am

  94. I recently graduated with an MFA in Creative Writing. At a final "job talk" our seasoned and tenured professors gave, they told us that as far as jobs concerning writing go, we have two options: be lucky and talented enough to receive a paid fellowship somewhere, or be lucky and talented enough to get a job teaching comp for bad money, bad hours, and uninterested students. My goal for 2011 is to show them all-- peers included--that there ARE options for writers out there! Full time, freelance copy writing career, I look forward to meeting you very soon!

    Ashley RDecember 10, 2010 at 8:33 am

  95. At 12.01 A.M. on January 1, 2011 I will be on my way to a different life. I will finish the many programs that I am eager to get to. I will have several new clients and I will give up teaching. I will work from home and earn a great living doing something that I was born to do. To write, to tell others about the things I discovered while doing research.

    Guest (Micheline)December 10, 2010 at 8:48 am

  96. My goals are: 1. Complete the Copywriting course by Jan. 31, 2011. 2. Launch my copywriting business/website by March 1, 2011. 3. Land first accounts within one month of launch. 4. Earn $30,000 in copywriting income by Dec. 31, 2011. This will hopefully allow us to keep our home after the loss of my wife's job.

    Guest (Corey Perry)December 10, 2010 at 8:59 am

  99. My goal for 2011 is to become a full-time B2B copywriter earning $100k per year. My website is ready to go, I am working on my marketing efforts now, but could use help in the specific tactics for reaching good B2B prospects and closing deals.

    Guest (Lisa B)December 10, 2010 at 11:41 am

    Dave JDecember 10, 2010 at 11:59 am

  102. My goal for 2011 is to implement what I learned in Grant Writing Success to raise funds for faith based non profits. Specifically, to find funding for Hearts for Heaven to build a vocational school in Guatemala for children enrolled in the feeding program. We need $75,000 to get the project started. I used the sources listed in Grant Writing Success and Internet Research Specialist to target five promising foundations. In addition, I will develop a website to market my grant writing skills. This is a great career for someone with a dual disability of low vision and deafness! I may not be able to go and build the school, but I can help to find funding for it!

    Guest (Bill Hall)December 10, 2010 at 12:08 pm

  103. I've always been a goal junkie (it's one of the ways I stay motivated) and I cannot wait until this time next year so I can check off all my accomplished goals!

    By then I will be half-way through my COS program (which I LOVE already!)...I'll submit at least three spec assignments...I'll have enough PAID projects to develop an impressive online business plan will be complete...and I'll quit my day job for good!

    Most exciting of all...I'll be well on my way to living the Writer's Life!

    WriterBevDecember 10, 2010 at 1:38 pm

  108. Taking the first step. That is my goal for 2011 and creating a path. I am new to copywriting, but it is an interest for me and I am dedicating time and effort to making my dreams into reality. I will be purchasing the Accelerated Program for Copywriting in January and to begin a part time, and then full time, change of lifestyle. I work overseas, and I need to be home more for my boys, and I am taking the first step to accomplishing this task.

I plan to get rid of my fears of starting my own business, Travel and use skills taught in AWAI to start being able to pay for some of my dreams/goals.

    RDWDecember 10, 2010 at 7:45 pm

  117. My goal for 2011 is to turn my passion for writing, travel and photography into a second income and to make writing for my niche market, B2B Travel, my high five figure income.

    sempre insiemeDecember 10, 2010 at 11:59 pm

  118. TEAMWORK and planning with my wife-mentor, Maggie, is my foundational goal for 2011. I would not be in this business without her inspiration and advice. I received three offers for writing copy for the web to help each build their on-line business. Our site Ventureserve Publishing needs better copy for our products and AWAI affiliates. Maggie, a COS member, wrote the copy for my ABC Piano Playing Method. Selling it around the world to that special targeted group is our plan.

    John HarriesDecember 11, 2010 at 1:03 am

  119. My chief goal for 2011 is to apply the selling and copywriting knowledge I've accumulated through this year, and start my freelance copywriting career. Knowledge and experience are the primary things I'm after, I know money will follow once I'm good at what I'm doing.

    There's one vision (originally gotten from Accelerated Program for Six-Figure Copywriting) that keeps me motivated while I'm learning and practicing copywriting - vision of my future job application getting accepted by AWAI.

    HoldenDecember 11, 2010 at 3:58 am

  120. Goal for 2011-

  122. My goal for 2011 is to quit my job and, in year one of the writer's life, make a baseline income of $50,000.

    ShannonDecember 11, 2010 at 10:43 am

  123. I like most here have a couple of goals for 2011. Short and sweet: No longer working at Walmart of course! Made $50,000 and on my way to $100,000. Own my own home again (me and the bank, at first). Send my parents to Hawaii.

    Laura ZDecember 11, 2010 at 12:55 pm

  124. I'm taking the first step. The first step to learning about copywriting, as I will be purchasing the program and executing the steps to success; the first step to financial independence to replace my job which requires me to be away from home for months at a time; and the first step to a new me, broadening my horizons into talents that I need to sharpen and polish. Everything else will fall into place once I take that first step.

    CL SteenDecember 11, 2010 at 12:59 pm

  125. My goal is to take the copywriting freelance writing program by the horns and get a runnining start. I plan on buying my mother a home and paying off most of my bills. I also plan on losing around thirty pounds and shaping up quite a bit. Of course having fun along the way. I'm close to the lemonade. I just hope it's cold!

    Guest (Demetrius)December 11, 2010 at 1:26 pm

  126. * I will relaunch our training site and gain new students thanks to the improved copywriting skills I gain through the AWAI course.
    * I will finish writing and publish the books I started this year.

    SusanDDecember 11, 2010 at 1:31 pm

  127. My goal for 2011 is 3 fold:

    2. Discover web publications that I could write regarding travel or exercise(partically water aerobics)
    3. To publish one travel article via Feb.1,2011.

    AFARIDecember 11, 2010 at 3:04 pm

  128. I have been writing for years in one form or another but now I want to make this profession my one and only til I drop dead! LOL!

    I am committed to making my copywriting business successful enough to make plenty of money that will take care of me and those I love.

    I want to be my own boss with no one to tell me what to do ... except for the clients that hire me and pay me well.

    I will be making $100,000.00 by the end of 2011! Can't wait! Tired of being poor and almost homeless!

    Sherlock26December 11, 2010 at 8:10 pm

  129. My goal for 2011 is to finally take action towards achieving a successful writing career. I have always had such vivid dreams of being a writer, but have been too afraid to take the first steps. Now, instead of dreaming of the great stories that I COULD and SHOULD write, I will actually BEGIN writing them. I will become more educated and well practiced; I will pull every ounce of confidence out of me to meet my writing goals so that I can prove my dreams right!

    The Sun Still Shines7December 11, 2010 at 11:59 pm

  130. My goals for 2011 is simple.
    1. Complete my first novel which I started this year.
    2. See my first book of poetry publish
    3. Start earning money from the copy writing course which I would be receiving sometime in the new year
    4. Start law school from the money that I would be earning from copy writing and live a productive, peace life doing what I love doing which is writing.

    Merry Christmas Everyone & Have a Happy Productive New Year

    Guest (Madana Dookieram)December 12, 2010 at 8:42 am

  131. Before I attended the Travel Writing Workshop in Santa Monica this August, my dream was to be a travel writer and re-locate overseas.
    After the workshop, my goal for 2011 is to move to Cuenca and continue with my travel writing. I'm learning how to turn my dream into a reality with planning, hard work and perserverance.
    My self confidence has soared and every day now I think of mi vida nueva to come in Cuenca!

    L4slundonthemoveDecember 12, 2010 at 1:16 pm


    I’m tired of depending on others for my well-being. INDEPENDENCE is my goal for 2011.

    Like most people, I've always had a "job", which meant working for someone else. I worked at their pleasure, kept their hours, and followed their sometimes silly rules. They forced me to change who I am to meet their needs. And I'm tired of doing that.

    It’s no fun being a square peg in a round hole just to fit someone else's idea of who I am or who I should be. I don’t want to do that anymore.

    I want to fire my boss and take his place. I want to work at MY pleasure, when I want, where I want, on a daily schedule that suits me. Above all else, I want my creativity and experience to be valued, not discouraged or ignored or dismissed.

    I WILL finish the Six-Figure Copywriting course in 2011. Twice. Maybe three times.

    I WILL somehow, some way, find my copywriting niche, whatever it might be. I haven’t found it yet, but I will. I kno

    Jim LawrenceDecember 12, 2010 at 1:22 pm

  133. My goal for 2011 is to become a full time, working copywriter by the end of the year.To build long lasting relationships with good clients so both their business and mine will prosper.

    Merry Christmas Everyone and Good Luck with all your future goals.

    Bev - copywriterDecember 12, 2010 at 8:20 pm

    Lane SDecember 12, 2010 at 11:57 pm

  141. My goals for 2011 are to make as many of my days "ideal" as possible.

    This description includes the amount of money I want to earn, the type of clients I want to work with, and the projects I want to work on. My ideal day includes time for learning as well as for my family. I got this idea from the Wealthy Freelancer and have written my ideal day for each day of the week. I'm now putting this info on a 3x5card to carry in my wallet.

    2011 will be great.

    Guest (Julie G)December 13, 2010 at 12:16 pm

  142. My first priority and goal for the new year is to focus on becoming more independant career wise by building money making websites to fall back on and explode my business2business copying writing venture soon after. AWAI has made all of this possible and more! Thank you AWAI! Happy Holidays.

    Thefirst Noel December 13, 2010 at 12:18 pm

  143. My 2011 goal is to develop multiple streams of income to my business. I'd like to put together a kick-a** website that generates income through information products, have a bunch of referral sources that happily send me clients, and become an affiliate of a few select programs.

    Guest (Stacey Morris)December 13, 2010 at 12:20 pm

  144. While my goal for 2010 was realistic, I didn't have the backing of family. This has now changed.

    My goal for 2011 is to gain one new client a month that will generate a minimum of $5K so that by this time next year, I will have made in excess of $80,000, able to start a Bible class for business executives and visit our daughter who is with the Peace Corps in Africa.

    Guest (PJS56)December 13, 2010 at 12:23 pm

  145. I've decided I'm going to be self-sufficient in my writing by this time next year.

    Amy ADecember 13, 2010 at 12:29 pm

    Best of all, my work is changing lives for the better.

    Guest (Sean)December 13, 2010 at 12:39 pm

  147. I have several goals for 2011. My wife and I bought a pet supplies store in July, so my first goal is to use my copywriting to grow the clientele and make it profitable.

    Second is to plan out how to expand the business by adding a second location.

    Third is to use this experience to land copywriting clients in the pets business.

    It may be a busy year, but I plan on ending it on a high note!

    Kevin AdamDecember 13, 2010 at 1:03 pm

  148. With my 2010 goal of attending my first Boot Camp accomplished, my 2011 goals are to 1) identify my passion and my niche by Jan. 31, 2011, 2) go to work with publishing my own website by Feb. 2011 and, 3) self-promotion to begin earning income from my efforts as a copywriter by the end of 1st quarter 2011. Finally, I'd like to confidently take ownership of the title "Professional Copywriter" in 2011.

    Much success in 2011 to all my fellow AWAI Professional Copywriters!!

    ChenelDecember 13, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    Guest (Annie)December 13, 2010 at 1:38 pm

  150. My goal for 2011 is one word: FOCUS. I've spent too much of my life flitting around from one project to the next, starting one website and then another, never really succeeding at anything, much less finishing.

    When I began my work-at-home journey, my plan was to earn enough so that my husband, who is ill, could stop working and concentrate on getting well. By focusing during 2011, not only will that be a reality, but I will also be well on my way to being a highly successful copywriter.

    Sally DDecember 13, 2010 at 1:43 pm

  151. I have several goals to be able to have a solid, successful B2B copywriting business in 2011, working with great clients, and hit the 6 figures mark.
    First, I plan on having my site up (it’s at the designers now) and complete by January 1, 2011 along with my Free Report and eNewsletter. I have my business cards ordered.
    I’m firming up my other marketing tools. I’m dying to hit the ground running. With the help of AWAI and the COS I will stay on track to move forward.
    To celebrate my success I will be attending Boot Camp in 2011.

    Guest (Deb)December 13, 2010 at 2:15 pm

  152. I will work a marketing plan get paying clients in insurance/retirement while I decide on and build credibility in a niche I enjoy. Target: $100K.

    Guest (Kathryn A)December 13, 2010 at 2:17 pm

  153.

  349. My goal is to stop procrastinating and do it! I comit to writing every day, and stop endless searches for more resources and study materials before I put pen to paper. I'v been in information overload since I found AWAI in 2006 and attended that fall's Bootcamp. My bookshelves and tables are stacked with every program AWAI offers. I've yet to submit anything. The courses are great and the support staff is fabulous-so what is wrong with me? My confidence level is 0. I want to get on in 2011.

  352. We've doubled online sales from 2009. Sales pages are converting like gangbusters (around 65%). Emails are garnering increased click through rates. And we've doubled the size of our list.

    In 2011, I want to keep up the momentum and double everything again. With testing and measuring, we're about to turn our tactics into a reliable system.

    I also want to increase my consulting with authors and newbie marketers and start to sell my direct response writing services (at least 2 clients).

My goal is to be organized, committ time each week to learning about writing ad-copy, assemble my profile to submit to freelance sites, reach out to others about my availability, and continually make the leap into pro-bono or paid assignments. I will reward myself for each step, so that I can realize small to larger successes as I proceed. Happy New Year!

    Guest (sl1038)December 24, 2010 at 8:08 am

  418. At over a half a century old, this is my journey of a lifetime-finding a niche! My goal prior to the end of Jan 2011 must be to find this niche. The other pieces are nearly in place, but finding an area to focus that can prove profitable for a money making website as well as to focus a B2B web writing business is proving to be the challenge. Once achieved goals are - launch two websites, one for residual income and one for the B2B web writing business, learn social networking (remember I am not from 'generation new') to expand exposure to my sites. Once clients are attracted through various marketing pieces, cross sell services to increase fee income per client and maintain ongoing business relationships.

    To make this happen, I have laid out weekly attainable goals to accomplish that bring me closer to the 'launch' of the business-a countdown that will eventually propell me to my live websites and implimentation of marketing pieces.

    Monetary goal - replace my current full time j

  448. My goal for 2011 is to be making at least $150.00/month from Stock Photography, and finishing up my collection of short stories. I wish to become proficient with my first DSL camera (not yet out of its box!) I will be totally healthy, confident and living in blue jeans without apology. My mind already knows I am a powerful woman, and by the end of 2011 my heart will feel it, too.

  450. My prime goal for 2011 is to market myself better. This is a huge stressor for me. With this accomplished, I think the rest will fall into place. Establishing realistic milestones is important for me and I have them now. I am continuing to educate myself in the writing areas that interest me, finishing my writing website, and building my portfolio. I am starting 2011 with two websites successfully accomplished for clients, so I feel like I am on the right path.

  452. I recently became unemployed after 40 years into my career as an Architect. I am at the top of my salary scheduled and with the downturn, employers can hire two employees for what I am worth. So....with this time off I have invested a bit into AWAI's literature and am ready to begin. I have nine story ideas filed away and with my new "spare time" I have made it my goal to get published or accepted in the first month of 2011 and then one a month thereafter (not to mention my stock photo goals. Wish me luck! — Mike G
