New Year’s Resolutions for Egg - 2016 Edition

I enjoy my end-of-year resolutions post. It gives me time to reflect on the past year, as well as look forward to even more great things in the next year. Last year I shortened my resolutions list significantly, and I’m happy with the results.

Year in Review: 2015 Resolutions

Here’s what I hoped to achieve a year ago, as well as results:

1. Increase repeat business by 40%.

I’m really happy to say that 90% of Egg’s revenue is from repeating customers. I think we’ve managed to impress customers with our great content skills, and they come back for more!

2. Take on more work that I can hand directly over to my fabulous writing team.

We had a couple of new clients this year that I barely touched once the project started rolling. This year, I learned how to get out of the way and let my amazing writers (and new editor, Sian Phillips) do their thing.

3. Ghostwrite at least 5 business books for clients.

I wrote two business books and countless whitepapers and ebooks, so I’m on track for this one.

4. Write 3 more books for my book marketing site.

I actually put a lot of work into my other site, and created several books and guides for it.

I’m pretty happy with all the resolutions I made last year and their results! What about you? How did you fare with what you set out to achieve in 2015?

Now for 2016

I like keeping my list short, so here it is:

  1. Start writing for another high-traffic site monthly (like Forbes).
  2. Double the work for my freelancers.
  3. Attract clients in 2+ new industries.

Short and sweet!
