How to check your metrics monthly as an entrepreneur

I know a lot of people like to check their metrics weekly, but if I get around to it once a month, that’s a win. What do I do during this check-in? I check my finances/ make sure I paid myself and everything is lining up, I analyze what worked and what didn’t work the month prior, and I write down my monthly stats!

I analyzed the past 2 months because:

  1. I didn’t do it for April (having grace on myself)
  2. May kinda sucked (financially) for my business, so analyzing April as well made me feel better (just being honest)

What didn’t work

For April & May 2022

  • Not selling course in April 
  • Not selling TLP sale promotion 
  • Didn’t hit profit goal for May

What worked really well

  • Plenty of time with Sam and Eliza
  • My bliss/ personal time: running, keep doing it! 

Big wins

  • 3 website in a days in April
  • Purchased a new phone

Assess facts and feelings: 

TIME – I got a lot of time with my daughter which was needed

MONEY – made what I needed for April, but not May

DREAMS – I am living them = more time with my daughter to be a SAHM

Monthly Resolutions – something small you commit to do everyday to break or add habit – For the next few months I want to feel at peace and relaxed (especially being in this postpartum phase and going off anxiety meds). I will do this by:

  • Exercising
  • Reading FUN books
  • Less Instagram
  • Porch hangs in the morning
