My New Year’s Business Resolutions for 2020
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!
What are your New Year’s business resolutions?
Hey Susan! It’s great to know someone is also tuning down the length of resolutions. I’d really love to keep EGG blogs so I hope you find a way to work through both.
This year, I’m focusing on learning new skills, especially business skills. If I have to pick a new career down the road, then I will.
Cheers…to a fulfilling year
