4 Steps to Setting & Keeping Goals

Cheers to starting fresh in 2015! We often mark the start of a new year resolving to make lifestyle improvements like eating healthier or exercising more, but many of us forget about business resolutions. Did you know that only ten percent of the population has specific, well-defined goals, but even then, seven out of the ten reach their goals only half the time. Interestingly the top three percent of the population achieved their goals 89 percent of the time and it’s because they have written down their goals.

We’ve heard the importance of goal setting, but how many of us write down our goals or have a clear plan to reach them? Creating goals helps keep us focused and motivated. Just like making New Year’s resolutions, setting business goals doesn’t need to be complicated. Here are four simple steps to setting and keeping goals for your business.

  1. Determine your long-term target. Do you want to earn money for a big-ticket purchase, a vacation next summer or  save for retirement? It doesn’t matter how big or small your long-term goal appears, it’s yours to identify. Periodically review your long-term goal to assess progress and modify as your circumstances change.

  2. Create the path to your long-term goal by setting short-term milestones. Make short-term goals precise and measureable: Each month I will earn ‘X’ amount of money or recruit ‘X’ number of people. Expressing goals positively (“I will” instead of “I won’t”) builds on self-confidence, a virtue of successful leaders and entrepreneurs.

  3. Get organized and establish a routine, including prioritizing tasks, keeping a to-do list and making time daily. Only have five minutes today? What can you do that leads to your goal? Maybe it’s following up with a potential customer or touching bases with a team member needing support.

2014 Year in Review

From opening a second distribution center in Florida to launching the revolutionary Prebiotic Body Wash to being named to the Top 100 Women Owned Companies, 2014 has been an incredible year for growth and opportunity. Here's our 2014 year in review.

Products

The introduction of innovative new products is one of the key elements in engaging our customers and creating excitement for our sales consultants. Roll-on deodorant in Fresh, Sport, Lavender and Unscented were introduced at the beginning of 2014. We launched a revolutionary Prebiotic Body Wash at our annual convention in Denver, Colorado in July. This organic, GMO-free product works on a molecular level by stimulating good microorganisms on the skin and promoting collagen production. Green Concealing Stick corrector, Organic Eye Makeup Remover, Stardust and Red Hot Lip Glosses, and Coral Blush were newcomers to the Sheer Minerals Makeup line. The Men’s Essentials organic skincare line was introduced featuring Shaving Crème, Body Wash, After Shave Lotion and Cleansing Gel, specially formulated for guys. Aromatherapy Mists featuring certified organic essential oil blends were introduced in five blends: Purifying Tea Tree, Lavender Relaxation, Citrus Refresher, Mint Revival and Balancing Act!

Community

We are incredibly grateful to the members of the community in Pine, Colorado who have supported us over the years. Five new employees were hired to help our expansion efforts, and we leased four additional suites in the business plaza. In July we began manufacturing and shipping from our second distribution center in Tarpon Springs, Florida with 10,000 square feet of office and warehouse space. Fourteen full-time team members are currently employed there. With both facilities fully operational, we realized a 2 to 4 day reduction in the turnaround time in shipping orders during the peak volumes: end-of-month and the holiday selling season.

Loving_Care_Set.jpg
Lemongrass Spa Products promotes a culture of serving  others and assists consultants throughout the year with charitable endeavors through the Lemongrass Spa Giving Back Fund. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness during October, Lemongrass Spa offered two corporate-sponsored initiatives, the Think Pink Blending Brush donation and Loving Care Gift Set giveaway, to help bring attention to the role of potentially-dangerous chemicals in personal care products.

Who doesn’t love a little splurge knowing a portion of one’s purchase goes to a noble cause? In October, Lemongrass Spa Products presented the Limited Edition Think Pink Blending Brush with a promise to donate $1 from the sale of each brush to the Breast Cancer Fund and National Breast Cancer Foundation. Providing safe and affordable skin care and mineral makeup is Lemongrass Spa’s primary objective, and the key to making smarter skincare choices is through education. Heidi Leist, Founder and CEO of Lemongrass Spa, chose to donate proceeds from the sale of the Think Pink Blending Brush to the Breast Cancer Fund and National Breast Cancer Foundation because these two organizations are passionate about educating the public about the dangers of toxic chemicals. In November, Heidi wrote each organization a check for $500 thanks to Lemongrass Spa’s loyal customers.

Customers often seek out products that Lemongrass Spa offers after they’ve witnessed the devastating effects of cancer treatment. These women and men look to limit exposure to ingredients suspected to contribute to the body’s cancer development. During the month of October, Lemongrass Spa sought to provide fifty women undergoing cancer treatment with a little relief by sending them a Loving Care Gift Set for dry and damaged skin. Suggested by Samantha Meyer, a consultant in Oklahoma, after witnessing “first-hand how incredibly hard these kinds of treatments are on the body, and how important the integrity of the skin can be when the immune system is so completely compromised," this trio of healing products includes Healing Elements Balm, Organic Nail Balm and a jar of Ultra Hydrating Body Crème.

Nominations for women, men and children poured in from friends and family wanting to acknowledge their loved ones’ strength and courage through their cancer journey. Each story exemplified a brave individual’s story and exceptional fight while highlighting the unending support from loved ones. Rebecca, nominating her friend Jeanette, exclaimed “She has served our country as a Marine and continues to serve as a Marine Spouse all while fighting cancer TWICE now!” Cherie, who nominated a grandmother in Michigan, said “Even though the treatments are tough at times, she is always glowing.”
