october monthly goals report

Every month, I write a detailed monthly report about the progress that I’m making towards the goals and resolutions that I publicly stated on my blog earlier in the year.  This is my October 2017 Monthly Goals Report, which goes over each goal that I set and the progress that I’ve made on them so far.

Since I started sharing my Monthly Goals Reports a few years ago, I received such an amazing response from people on my blog.  People have been sharing with me how much I’ve inspired them or how helpful it’s been for them by me openly sharing my progress.  It’s my hope that you can take away something from this report that will help inspire you to achieve your own goals

My 2017 Goals Breakdown

I’m now going to go into each goal that I committed to for 2017 in detail and share exactly where I’m at with it.  Also, be sure to check out the original 2017 goals and resolution video blog and my previous Monthly Goal Reports to compare my progress.


1. I will easily make $2,000,000 in revenue, while impacting thousands of peoples lives by December 31, 2017.

RESULT: $183,486.75 ($2,247,164.57 CAD total) – Goal Achieved

So happy that I achieved this goal during September, and now any additional income I make this month is just icing on the cake!  Wasn’t expecting to overachieve on this goal the way that I have, I’m super grateful.

While it may be impressive that I was able to generate this amount of money in a month, it’s always important to keep in mind that I did not get here overnight.  It’s taken me years of hard work, learning and consistent effort to build the multiple online businesses and income streams that I’ve developed.  I also often remind people that the money you earn is merely a reflection of the amount of value that you’ve added to other people’s lives.  If you focus on adding massive value and helping people, you will be rewarded for that.  That is what I continue to focus on every day and what I’m most proud of.

This income is comprised of a number of businesses and income streams that I have, such as:

2. I will easily have a $2,500,000 stock investment portfolio by December 31, 2017.

RESULT: $3,067,773.85 CAD – Goal Achieved

My stock investment portfolio continues to grow every month, however, as you can tell I’m sitting on a lot of cash.  I’m mainly sitting on my investments and collecting dividends, as the market has been doing fairly well lately.  Also, every month I’ve been transferring stock from one trading account to another, to ensure that I’m doing all of my investing from my holding company for tax and liability purposes.  After reading Tony Robbins book Unshakeable, he warns of a correction coming soon that will be a great opportunity to buy stock.  Right now I’m being patient. ?

My investment strategy is long-term and buying stocks that pay dividends.  Right now, I primarily focus on investing on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX), since I benefit from the weak Canadian dollar and economy.  Currently, my overall investment portfolio is down, however, I believe I’ve been able to benefit from it as I’m always buying when things drop and taking advantage of things.

The awesome thing about investing in dividend stocks is that I’ve been able to make a passive income of a couple thousand per month, as the stocks I invest in either pay a monthly or quarterly dividend.  So I’m not only benefiting from any capital gains, but also receiving a passive income from my investments.

RESULT: 3x – changed to Life Mastery Accelerator

49. I will easily volunteer in Ethiopia to build a school that I funded by December 31, 2017.

RESULT: Goal Achieved!

In October, Tatiana and I traveled to Ethiopia with Imagine1Day for a school inauguration that we helped fund.  It was one of the most powerful, life-changing experiences of our lives!  We were greeted by hundreds of children and families – it was so amazing to have been able to make such an incredible impact on their lives in such a way.
