Signpost: 2020 pointing left, 2021 pointing right - Coast Women in Business


Join Coast Women in Business on Thursday, January 14, 2021 via Zoom to discuss setting goals in 2021 and building resilience into your business. Setting goals for yourself and your business has never been more important than in 2021.

2020 – what a year! Not a lot of “highs,” and definitely more than our share of “lows,” but the “lows” teach us about ourselves and how we cope with adversity.

To succeed in 2021, you must have a plan with attainable, measurable goals that define:

  • Vision – “Where do I need to go and how do I get there?”
  • Focus – “Where am I, what do I have, what do I need?”
  • Motivation – “I need to set specific attainable and measurable goals”
  • Confidence – “I attain each goal from what I learned from my successes and my failures”
  • Performance measurement – “Did I achieve my goals?”
  • Success measurement – “Am I ready for the next opportunity or challenge?”

During our virtual meeting, feel free to put any questions in chat so that presenter and moderators can make sure you get the information you need. We can all sip a ☕ beverage 🍵 of our choice in lieu of the complimentary coffee and tea we usually provide at our in-person meetings.

About the Presenter

Steve Lamb

With over 20 years of experience in management and operations in the telecommunications industry, Steve serves as Client Services Manager at the West Business Development Center. Previously, he owned his own company, the Interview Team. Steve’s particular areas of expertise include strategic and tactical planning, budgeting and financial analysis, project development and management, and creating and maintaining positive relationships with governmental and regulatory agencies. He also excels in a number of human resources areas including maximizing employee productivity, maintaining high employee morale, managing high-risk employees, and developing supervisors and managers.

Steve says that one of his favorite things about working with West Center clients is “suggesting clients look at a particular issue from a perspective which is different from any they previously considered. Suddenly I can see from their body language and facial expressions they now understand the point I’m trying to make and the impact it can have on their business venture. This is the advantage of the clarity and non-emotional analysis of being on the outside looking in.”
