Setting effective and achievable business goals is the heart of every successful business. By setting yourself goals you can clearly see where you want to go, how far you have got and how you are going to get there.
You might not be a stranger to setting business goals, but you could be a stranger to achieving those business goals that you have set yourself so in this blog post we would like to share some goal setting tips with you to help you set and achieve goals for your business.
Set Descriptive Goals
By setting a descriptive goal it means you will be able to imagine, picture and see that goal in your mind. The better you can visualise your business goal, the more chance you will have of achieving it.
Set Achievable Goals
We aren’t telling you to be vague about your goals, but instead set yourself goals that you feel you can really achieve. If for example you want to own 5 beauty salons across the east of England but feel this is a ‘pipe dream’ then break it down into smaller, achievable goals.
Set Timed Goals
With no finish line or completion date in place, then you won’t start working on those goals. If you’re planning on opening a new beauty salon, or having 50 clients at your salon for a certain beauty treatment then you need to set yourself a date you want to have the salon or new clients by.
Set ‘Why’ Goals
You goals need to have reasons you want to achieve them; this may not be just because you want to drive a nicer car, but instead for a better work-life balance, to be known as an expert in your industry and such like.

Set Milestones In Your Goals
Set smaller goals towards your main goal and celebrate when you achieve these mini goals / milestones. Also use these points as a chance to review how far you have got and amend areas that need improvement or things you no longer want to or need to achieve. This can be a really good discussion with a beauty business consultant or beauty business coach as you can discuss the goals you have set and goals that need to be changed.
By setting business goals you are showing yourself and your team that you are serious about business and you will achieve everything you dream of with some hard work, dedication and focus.
