Journaling for Entrepreneurs: Business Journaling Tips

Take a look at any successful entrepreneurs or freelancers and you’ll see some similarities between them. Successful businesses start with a plan:

  • Goals
  • A targeted message
  • A description of what success means

Successful businesses require research and observation skills:

  • Knowledge of target audiences
  • Knowledge of the market
  • Understanding your own value

Successful people also require creativity. You need to know how to think of possibilities, no matter how far-fetched they seem.

I may be biased as a writer, but I think Journaling for Entrepreneurs is a useful method to help develop these pillars of success.
