Episode Recap

4 Steps to Set and Achieve Goals

1. Write it down

  • Be Realistic
  • Lifetick, an online goal setting and tracking tool.
  • S.M.A.R.T. Goal Setting

Specific = Does the goal clearly state what it will achieve?
Measurable = Will you know if you have achieved your goal?
Achievable/Action-Oriented = is this a goal which can actually be achieved or wishful thinking?
Relevant = Does this goal reflect your values in life?
Time Specific = When do you want to achieve this goal by?

2. Be held accountable

  • The differentiator when it comes to achieving goals.
  • Julien Gordon’s Guaranteed Goals accountability group.

3. Track the progress

4. Celebrate the achievements

    I can truly identify with this topic

  • Representation

    Kerry-Ann, I am so thankful for your podcast. As a Jamaican who moved to the US before adulthood, and is trying to find a way to build a legacy that serves both cultures, it’s really inspirational to hear stories from others who are trying to do the same. Charmaine Gray Matthews Project

  • Authentic, Inspirational & Informative!

    This podcast feels like your comfy favorite blanket - familiar, comforting and warm. As a person of Carribean decent it's refreshing to hear a podcast dedicated to our stories.

  • The Podcast You Should Subscribe To!!
    by kaishajones from United States

    Carry On Friends podcasts stepped up when there was very few or little to none supporting a demographic of people seldom targeted or not targeted at all. I appreciate this as a young woman of Caribbean American ??????(Bajan/PuertoRican - Afro Latino) decent. To embrace culture and enterprise is what this podcast encourages.The content is supportive and relevant to what you need to get started as entrepreneur providing tools and resources. Nothing is held back, it's definitely a must listen and I'm truly grateful for it.

  • This feels like home
    by Danielle "Dani Dares" Fontus from United States

    I LOVE that this is a place where the unique reality of being Caribbean American is celebrated. It is comforting to hear others that I can do specifically relate to. I love that it is informative and fun in a way that only a Caribbean American can do. It really is a great marriage of the cultures!

  • Great discussions and topics
    by ChanelStew from United States

    I love that this podcasts speaks to professional growth with the Caribbean population in mind. Who else tells us how to be unique in culture in a work world that isn't expecting is. Getting insights from people that I may never have heard from. Thank you, and as a Black American but wouldn't change a thing about this podcast.

  • It was a pleasure to be a guest on the show!
    by Rana Campbel from United States

    My experience interviewing with Kerry-Ann was fabulous. Love what she is doing on the show and think that she has a unique gift for pulling out gems while still staying true to the Caribbean Spirit of the podcast! Would highly recommend to my fellow Caribbean Americans 🙂

  • Great Info!

    I'm loving Kerry's insight! Keep up the great work. One love! Kwame

  • Entertaining, practical and informative
    by Kingsley - Hope Dispenser from United States

    I have enjoyed listening to this show with Kerry-Ann. I love the content and the enthusiasm displayed in each episode. I have listened to a number of episodes and have always come away with something of value. As the host of the Success Caribbean Style podcast, I know what it takes to put together a show period much less a great one. Kerry-Ann has mastered it. Great show ~ @kingsleygrant

  • To Greatness.. Carry On!

    Awesome !!!

  • There are more...
    by Jboss3886 from United States

    A few outliers are cool but Kerry-Ann sheds light on some lesser known successful Caribbean American entrepreneurs. Excited about the interview series.

  • Content I can relate too
    by Yogi_HM from United States

    I like a few of the topics discussed so far in this podcast series, actually went through the feelings of episode 8 the day before listening to it.

  • Easy listen
    by Hiccmann from United States

  • Inspirational
    by Bammbizzle from United States

    Great listen,very informative and to the point.Love her voice.

  • Well done!!
    by G1bbles from United States

    First, let me say that Kerry-Ann is very eloquent and has a wonderful voice for the radio. I listened to her segment on accountability and goal setting. This couldn't have come at a more perfect time; I recently lost my job and felt as if I was accomplishing none of my goals. For the rest of the month, I have a series of goals now that I hold myself accountable to achieve as well as being someone's accountability partner as he makes his way through technical with a few hurdles in the way. I must say I haven't felt this refreshed in a while! This is a great podcast, and my friends think so too!

  • Love it!
    by ANarine08 from United States

    Just listened to this podcast for the first time and loved it. Kerry-Ann is positive, encouraging, motivating, and full of wonderful ideas (like keeping a compliment journal). Definitely worth checking out if you need some encouragement/motivation in your life.
