Well, 2018 is coming to a close and it is always a great opportunity to reflect over the past year to understand your growth, what might have not worked, where you can make changes and figure out what is next.
➦ 2018 was a HUGE year for me for my business!! I started regrowing back in 2017 when I did a 10 month Mastermind Program and this continued into 2018. With my growth, I realized that I could not continue to move forward unless I hired helped, so I now have 2 people who help me daily with a variety of activities. I have also been outsourcing different tasks that ultimately are a benefit to my clients. This has allowed me to continue taking on more clients from Business Page Management and Coaching.
➦ I launched my Online Academy and had 9 business women jump on board with an opportunity to learn how to use Social Media, Blogging, Networking, Newsletters, Opt-Ins, monthly Zoom calls with me, and it has been great to watch the ladies grow and embrace what I have taught them.
➦ I launched the FemCity Bradford Collective and was ecstatic to fill the Collective with 25 Business Women BEFORE my official launch meeting!! This was a true testament to all the building of relationships I have been doing for the last 10 years.
➦ I started with a Direct Sales company, that was at ground floor, however the company has still not launched in Canada, so I made a decision to walk away and put the Direct Sales industry on the back burner as it is not something that will fit with me at this time.
➦ I learned how to ‘fire’ myself from Clients and when to say ‘no” (still working on this lol).
➦ I restructured my calendar to work with everything that I wanted/needed to accomplish BUT will move into 2019 developing a new calendar as more changes are coming for me. It is important that I manage my time effectively as I still want to take my weekends off.
➦ I took 3 vacations as travel has become one of my passions and I will continue to take a couple of trips a year. I am very fortunate to be able to work my Facebook Business from anywhere in the world.
➦ We, as a family, went through some personal journeys BUT I am excited to say that things have taken a turn towards success.
I have gone through many ups and downs, both through business and personal, but have no regrets. I have learned, I have embraced, I have resolved, I have become a better person. Moving forward, there will be more changes and I am excited for them. I have some new opportunities and will rework my calendar to be able to embrace them. I will continue taking on new clients and at some point, look at hiring a 3rd person, if and when I need it. I am not afraid anymore of having people help me as I know this is important for my own growth.
Embrace everything that comes your way and know that it is okay if sometimes things just don’t work out. The bonus is that there will always be something you can learn from every single thing that enters into your life.
Cheers to an EXCITING 2019!!
