I set up my business two and a half years ago selling a mix of wedding accessories and handmade gifts and
it was only last year that I stumbled upon the Business Bakery and the 100 day goal through a Facebook ad.
I felt like I needed some direction in my business and this seemed like a good way to get some focus. I
started off with a bit of a vague goal, to reach a certain amount of orders/revenue within the 100 days. I
was really impressed by the resources provided by Julia – for a free challenge, the value you get is
incredible and as women in business, we all know how important high value content is!
I set my goal as I liked the idea of a number value to work to. I wrote down all my microactions (I’ll be
honest, I couldn’t even think of 50 before I started!) and picked one from the list each day. As I wasn’t very
busy at the time, I was often able to tick off two or three a day and I reached my goal within about a
month. I set myself another goal and, as I got busier, I’m sorry to say that I fell off the bandwagon a bit
with keeping up with my microactions – I would highly recommend that anyone doing the goal gets one of
those amazing Goal Trackers to colour in each day as I think that would have motivated me
a bit more! I reached the goal though and I now know that you need something that is an achievable
challenge; something just out of reach but not impossible to get to.
I am now on my third round of the 100 day goal. Why do I continue to do it? Because it keeps me focused
and makes sure that I don’t put off the jobs that I have to do but like the least. It’s forced me to think about
my business in a way that I hadn’t been – as a creative I’m all about making pretty things but taking on this
challenge has developed my “business brain” and I embrace the 100 day goal as a way of getting tasks
done. As a result of the challenge, I’ve completely revamped my website, streamlined the products that I
offer and created a brand that I finally feel is me. I wouldn’t have questioned what I was doing if I hadn’t
taken up this challenge and I am so grateful to Julia for all the support throughout the 100 day goal and
beyond. I would highly recommend it to anyone needing a focus in any aspect in life, be it business,
confidence or health related, you’d be surprised how much you can achieve in 100 days!- Sarah Cammish
