How to Set Goals that Actually Stick

Let’s face it: traditional goal setting sucks!

In this 2-day course you’ll learn 5 steps to set goals that truly work — so you can actually get stuff done this time around.

Steph Crowder is your instructor for this course
  • Feel calm & aligned in 2018,
    leaving the crazed & overwhelmed wheel-spinning behind.
  • Inspect & fix up each area of your life
    with 8-10 practical, exciting goals.
  • Craft a solid action plan you really believe in
    instead of hoping everything will somehow work out.

Goal setting is broken!

Traditional goal setting misses the mark, big time. There are a few reasons why.
  • The “productivity” approach: A lot of people think goal setting is all about being more disciplined, working harder & pushing more. This keeps you on the burnout treadmill for the rest of your life.
  • “Should-ing” all over yourself: Most of us write down goals we think we should have (“I want to make 6 figures!” “I want to be a size 0!” “I want more Instagram followers!”)
  • “Maybe next year”: Yes, we’re teaching this course in January, but the truth is we can’t wait for January 1 every time we set goals. We have to create that energy with a new process, any time we want it.
  • The need to “come up” with your goals: How do you even “make up” your goals? What’s a good goal to have anyway? Is it random?

Luckily, there’s a better way -- a way that translates into real progress and satisfaction this year.

Less discipline,
more desire

The crazy part is, you already have your goals. They’re inside of you, waiting to be excavated.

Goal setting driven by discipline sounds like this:

“Maybe if I just worked harder, laid out my schedule better, woke up earlier, meditated harder or drank more water, I’d be successful!”

A discipline-based approach makes goal setting about becoming more productive.

Now, goal setting driven by desire sounds like this:

“How do I want to feel? What is my ideal life? What would it look like, if it could be anything?”

A desire-led approach makes goal setting about becoming more in alignment with your own version of a meaningful life.

“Goal setting can help us come home to ourselves, not chase some ’better’ version. What if we didn’t have to try SO hard?”

You deserve to
Get. Sh*t. Done.

It’s possible to set goals that light you up instead of wearing you down and freaking you out.

As a creative, freelancer or indie entrepreneur you want to feel successful. You want to know where you are, where you’re headed and why. And most of all, you want to have a repeatable process you can come back to again and again, one that you can rely on to actually help you do the work that matters.

I know what you’re thinking: “Another internet person telling me I need to set goals? Change the record and let me get back to work!”

Trust me, I get it. Setting goals has never worked for you before because you inevitably lose that New Year’s Resolution pixie dust.

A few months in you’re stuck right where you started: unsure of what to work on and how to have the life you really want.

I know, because I’ve been there. I’m a serial-achieving, gold-star-chasing people-pleaser, and I can hit goals with the best of ’em. But this is about more. This is about having the life YOU really want, on your own terms.

Get more done with less effort & resistance this year

That’s what we’re going to do in this course, and we’ll do it together in 5 steps:
  1. We’ll start by going big & bold. This is the part where you learn to have that January 1st type energy any time you want, without having to wait for the beautiful blank slate to roll around once a year.
  2. We’ll uncover what you need to work on this year. It’s one of the top question we hear from entrepreneurs: “How do I know what to work on next?” In Step 2, you’ll find the answer.
  3. You’ll learn to use your goal-setting compass. We’ll guide you through a ridiculously effective exercise to allow clarity to walk into your life, right now.
  4. You’ll learn to apply your new vision to a completely new area of your life.
  5. You’ll walk away with a plan and a process you can actually believe in … and you’ll be excited to do this process again!

A tried & true method for getting the good stuff done

Your instructor (that’s me) has tried (and failed) at just about every method out there.

Trust me, I know how many people are promising they’re the ones qualified to teach you about goal setting. Why is this course any different?

If you’ve listened to our podcast for any amount of time, you know I’m a “planner girl”. I’ve tried every method under the sun:

Paper planners. Digital planners. Zero planning. Minute-by-minute planning. Pomodoro planning. Morning routines, rewards-based systems, and the list goes on.

Every single thing I’ve tried has fallen short in one huge way: these methods have never gotten me closer to how I truly want my life to look.

So I made my own method, and I’ve been refining it for 7 years. I’ve taught it to thousands of people who listen to The Fizzle Show, and I’ve led an in-person workshop to help 300 people hammer this stuff out.

No matter who you are, this works.

The reason it works? You’re going to learn how to define goals on your terms -- not based on what your instructors or anyone else thinks is “good”, but based on what YOU truly desire. Together we’ll unlock that skill, and you’ll repeat it over and over as time goes on.

“It's almost December and I'm amazed and proud of how laser focused, productive and HAPPY this year has been. Not saying that I didn't screw some things up - but because I am taking actions that align with my values-driven intention, there's no basis for regret or self-condemnation. Super effective and liberating! I plan to use this goal-setting framework again for 2018.”

You May Have Some Questions:


I don’t want to be sleazy in my business or life. Will this practice make me do anything uncomfortable? First, I like where your head’s at. Second, NO. At Fizzle we create trainings that help you accentuate your unique personality, voice and values (instead of causing you to act in unnatural ways).

I don’t have a lot of time. Will I be able to take the course in little chunks? Absolutely. You’re busy, but pro training will up your game. So we make each lesson short, strong and actionable, usually with at least one downloadable worksheet per lesson.

How much does it cost? There are two ways to buy this course. 1. it comes free with Fizzle Membership, and 2. you can purchase it individually. Fizzle Membership is the one-stop-shop for indie biz resources (40+ courses, community + support, weekly coaching sessions, small business roadmap). It costs $39/month. But you can try it out for a couple weeks for free. Get in, try it out, see if it’s for you, cancel anytime… no contracts, no hidden fees. Learn more.

You could also purchase this course as a stand-alone course. You'll be charged a one-time fee and you'll have access to the course for life. You can purchase this course individually from the links above in green.

Can I trust you guys? Another great question. I guess I’ll say two things in response. 1. We’ve got experience. We’ve been doing business online longer than most. In fact, well respected entrepreneurs like Pat Flynn of and Steve Kamb of have chosen to work with us instead of others for that very reason. We’ve done venture backed startups, client services business, large and small blogs and much in between. So, we’ve got some experience. And 2. It’s free to get in and kick the tires. That’s it. Click one button to cancel. We won’t string you along or hassle you. I could spout off about our pedigree all day, but the biggest testament to our training is the finished product itself, both the training and the killer community. I hope you give it a try.

“I can tell you first hand that you can stop thinking because this is a no-brainer. I’m a Fizzler and have completed this thorough, well thought-out course and can testify this course is one of the best online courses I’ve ever taken. The checklists and worksheets really helped me fully understand the concepts. It also forces you to get real and apply what you’ve learned. I’ve bought over 50 different “online business building” courses over the years, some costing up to $2,000 (I was desperate for anything that would help me). This course, along with the other courses at Fizzle, helped me understand things more clearly and has restored my faith in online business courses.”

“I’d paid out a lot of money (to me anyway) to connect and learn from other ‘experts’. I felt like I was getting nowhere fast and many of their values seemed at odds with mine and frankly manipulative. I wanted to build something online that mirrored and complimented my embryonic offline business… Fizzle is fucking ace. The videos are great – although that’s not what I’ve got the most value from. The real gold is the forums – very supportive, super smart and on the ball. The advice and support is so far beyond anything I’ve experienced online that if there was a lifetime membership option I’d snap it up.”
