I know there are people who detest resolutions because they think they’re unattainable and pointless, but I’ve been creating New Year’s business resolutions and personal ones for so long, they’ve become a habit. No, I don’t always achieve them, but setting them for the coming year helps me align my mind with where I want to go.
2019 New Year’s Business Resolutions in Review
This year was a bit of an anomaly for me. Business slowed way down, and I found myself focusing on a handful of clients (check off Resolution #1!). I started my creativity business, but have decided, after a year, that it served its purpose, and I’ve shut it down.
I also took on a full-time job. I listened to my intuition, which told me I needed a new challenge. I’m still running Egg on a smaller scale, but I’m really enjoying what the new job is bringing to my writing skills!
- Do More Business with Existing Clients: check!
- Increase Revenues by 25%: This didn’t happen, but it spurred me to ask myself, “what’s next?”
- Hire Two Writers: I did this, and even handed over clients to them so I could focus on what was important for me.
- Pull Back at Egg to Focus on Creating Space in Kensington: I managed to juggle the two simultaneously, though ultimately I decided to close CS.
New Year’s Business Resolutions for 2020
I think this is going to be one of those one-goal years for me. I’m learning the ropes at my new job, but I do want to keep select Egg clients because I love the diversity of hopping from one industry to another. I learn so much!
So this year’s goal is simply:
Find a way to sustain Egg while being successful at my full-time job.
No simple goal!
