Your priorities as a freelance for 2017?

Hey, Guys, I was wondering, what are your priorities as a freelancer for 2017?

As far as SEOclerks goes, I want to achieve the following:

  • never miss a deadline
  • develop at least 10 new different services
  • get at least 20 positive reviews for each of those new services
  • get at least 1500 total positive reviews by the end of the year, right now I'm at 900

Apart from SEOClerks I also have other goals like:
  • read 20 businesses books about online marketing
  • create at least 3 websites that earn from Adsense at least 1 dollar per day
  • get at least one more long-term client to work with

What you guys?

Hey Cristian,
Thank you for the topic.

Honestly speaking, I don't have too many goals as a freelancers. From January 2017, I will cut down on my freelancing career. I have come to the point in life where I've realized that I cant continue to "live the dream" so to speak.

I've been a full time freelancer for more than 5 years now and I love it. I really do, but I can't continue to do things the way I've been doing them in the past. My freelancing career have endured quite some blows during both 2015 and 2016. - And I haven't managed to make a good enough comeback from these blows. - God knows I've tried, but I can't keep up working 16 hours per day and still being afraid of not making enough money to pay my bills at the end of the month. - It's too much pressure.

I've tried various things and I've been doing things differently. I've tried.. But it doesn't work. - I will take a step down, and I will try to go back to freelancing on my spare time instead of full time. - And let the future decide if I ever go back to being a full time freelancer again.

OK well I am not a freelancer, I am a blogger so my goals are not quite the same since I am not focusing on sales here really. I love to buy here.

My goals are really simple. I want to start earning more and working less Your priorities as a freelance for 2017? I want to earn enough during the course of 2017 to buy an empty property so we can build our own home.

Other than that yes I want to increase my earnings for all of my websites but it is about being able to have free time too to spend with my children Your priorities as a freelance for 2017?

My first priority would be fixing a proper goal for my freelancing work. Along with that I will try to learn and improve some new skill as well.

I'm looking forward to getting connected to as much as clients that I can get close to during this year and also ensure that I build a strong network with some of my friends that are into freelancing as well. That way, I won't have to lose out on many opportunities that would come up

My priorities for 2017 is still kicking and I hope before the year gets to a close, I should have made most of those priorities a reality.

Write at least 5 ebooks
get a new blog off the ground
Engage in more offers online
Make some tidy sums for the year.

For this coming year, I am hoping to get a higher rating in my forum posting. It was pretty good at the start until a forum owner gave me a killer rating that pulled down my average. Hopefully my average can recover if some sympathetic forum owner would be fair with me.
