The Dream vs The Reality
Don’t get me wrong, I’ve loved the journey, but now realise it isn’t as clear cut as I imagined.
Here is my year in review:
1 Purpose and Vision
3. Collaborations & Contras
5. Sydney VA group
6. Perceptions Realised
- Social media and blog writing planning coaching sessions are now available. It starts with a free discovery call where we connect via zoom and nut out a quarterly strategy together. This is still in its infancy and I look forward to providing this service to many more clients in the coming year.
- I will also be offering a free social media audit for all new clients. Many more offers to come too including incentives for continuing a retainer agreement.
This year I had a client call from another State who was referred to me by someone I didn’t know. This is exciting news for me. She retained my services for a project and I hope to hear from her again in the future.
8. Public Speaking
This year I lead one networking group session on time management and goal setting. I received brilliant feedback and gained benefit from it myself. Read more about the benefit here.
I decided to up the ante and push myself further out of my comfort zone. So I’ll be doing 4 public speaking engagements next year.
9. Continuous learning
I have participated in workshops for:
- basic bookkeeping
- Social media marketing
- Facebook Ads
Having completed a complete copywriting course via UDEMY earlier this year, I am currently completing a Social Media Management Course via Freelance University. I want to continue expanding my knowledge in all things SEO, social media and copywriting, along with learning about the inner workings of several systems.
I’m now well aware business ownership is a learning journey, a journey of growth, and refinement. I’ve made my share of mistakes. I have laughed, connected with some absolutely inspiring, supportive and incredible business owners. Collaborated, cried, felt imposter syndrome 1000 times, doubted my abilities and questioned my decisions, felt excitement that I took another step in the right direction. I love my client’s, the challenges and the journey.
Mindset and business are super connected…what a rollercoaster it’s been. Bring on 2020. I have set myself challenges, am excited to continue to grow the business and myself.
Wishing you a Happy restorative new year!
Thank you for listening to my self-indulgent reflection, of a year that was. And after a short break, I look forward to serving and connecting with you next year. On that note, I hope you all enjoy a short break too.
We all deserve a break, to spend time with loved ones, to allow ourselves. In fact, we all NEED a break. Taking time out helps you get back to the reason and mindset of when and why you started the business in the first place and gives you the mental energy to pivot and change when needed.
