My August 2017 Monthly Goals Report

august 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 August 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: $224,716.48 ($1,855,512.62 CAD total)

Another fantastic month, very close to hitting $2M this year (likely achieved in September), which will be the most amount I've ever made in a year.  I'm excited to see where my total revenue will end up by the end of the year, as well as how much net profit I have.

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: Goal Achieved – $2,951,999.38 CAD

august 2017 investment portfolio

NOTE: In the video I accidentally read off July's total stock portoflio.

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.

46. I will easily host a monthly coaching session with the Project Life Mastery Teen Mentoring Program by December 31, 2017.

RESULT: 3x – changed to Life Mastery Accelerator

After hosting a few Teen Mentoring Sessions for the group of teens I mentor that are 18 years old and younger, I decided to change it up and instead integrate it with my Life Mastery Accelerator program.  I've now turned this into a 12-month long mentoring program that I'm making available to teens that would like my help and mentorship, which is something I wish I had when I was younger.  If you're 19 or older, then I believe you should be more than capable of paying for mentoring or coaching, just as I did when I was 19.  But those 18 and younger often don't have credit cards and I am passionate about being a “Big Brother” to those that need it.

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

RESULT: Scheduled for October 2017

In October 2017, I will be traveling to Ethiopia to volunteer to build a school that I funded last year.  I look forward to going on this amazing journey and making a difference in a community that is suffering from poverty and lack of education.

50. I will easily cultivate the habit of giving more by giving to those that are homeless and truly in need every opportunity I get by December 31, 2017.

RESULT: More consistent in August

Overall, I enjoyed putting this Monthly Goals Report together and I look forward to doing one again next month.  I’ve found that this public commitment has been pushing me to stay motivated and accountable as well, which is helping me to get more done also.  Thanks for reading!
