Last year Scott & Alyssa were on a roll. They had been hitting all of their goals for many, many years. They felt great!
Until they realized they were likely hitting all their goals because they were thinking too small.
So in 2022 Scott & Alyssa dreamt really big. And guess what?
They still crushed their goals!
They did so by coming up with a new strategy that allowed them to closely monitor their goals all year long. Today on the podcast they’re sharing that exact strategy and other takeaways from setting goals as a couple for 14(!) years.
What you’ll learn
- How to think bigger when setting goals
- How the Barlows accomplished goal setting as a family
- Goal categories you can use if you’re new to goal setting
- The importance of prioritizing goal setting time in your calendar
I realized early on in that career transition that if I was going to be able to find a job that was rewarding and in an area I liked, even to just pay rent, I would need help because I wasn’t getting the results I needed I know how to get introduced to people and talk to folks. I’ve done this remote job search thing a few times. What made it different for me though is that it’s not just an opportunity to change location but to change position. It could be not just a lateral move from one city to another but it could also be a promotion. I was moving my career and experience to an area where I went from leading projects to potentially leading teams… Sometimes you can stretch yourself and sometimes you need a team to stretch you beyond your best. I think that’s the biggest value from coaching. You have someone in your corner looking out for your best interests. If they are doing their job as good as Lisa did they are pushing you to be the best version of yourself.
They went from a total comp package of $165K to $359K. Wow! Wow! Wow! I’m over the moon right now and really in shock! They reiterated how I was worth every penny and said “You can find anyone with technical expertise, but someone with your disposition and DNA is hard to come by! We can’t wait for you to join the team and are so glad we could make this work for us.” I can’t thank you all enough for your coaching, encouraging support during these last few months! I’ve landed the role of my dreams along with the comp I wanted and knew that I deserved.
