It's hard to believe tomorrow is December 1st. Where has the time gone? This year flew by, but it's really no wonder. Between crossfit and blogging, styled shoots and e-book writing, seminars and trips to the Caribbean, Tennessee, Austin, and Florida, it's been a busy one! And it's not slowing down anytime soon. I'm working to launch Salad Club, the ebook and I have a few other special projects up my sleeve. This year was full of learning, planning, and growing but I hope next year is about executing.
As part of that, I'm using December to prepare myself for what I hope is a very big year for Fit for a Bride. I sat down with my husband a few nights ago and rattled off all my entrepreneurial hopes and dreams, and we made a list of goals. One project at a time, I hope to make these dreams a realty. Doing this is imperative, because when I listen to the desires of my heart, they say GO. FOR. IT.
More than anything, I want to help people. Like really help people. In my media kit, I share:
I'm a writer and I believe in the power of storytelling. I love connecting people and experiences, and creating communities where change and growth can occur. This blog is the start of that. A place where women, like myself, in the midst of a major milestone, whether marriage or motherhood, can share their stories of self-betterment and empower others to better themselves too.
THIS is what my soul is saying...
THIS is the essence of what I want this blog, my brand, and my business to be all about.
THIS is me, my sock bun and my big dreams. :)
This time of year is prime for this kind of reflection, too. It was just last December when I worked day and night getting the website ready, writing up posts, and mentally preparing for the launch of my "big idea."
I thought fireworks would go off when I first hit "publish," and in my heart, they did, but since then, it's been a slow start. Even though I've gotten frustrated about that at times, I wouldn't change a thing about this last year. It's been a GREAT first year and I know next year will be even better.
So in December, my goal is to put more into blog posts - make them more interesting, more useful, more pleasing to the eye. Plan ahead for awesome, one-of-kind content in 2013. And also be more mindful of my time, working on making the business happen; not just the blog.
Does any of that make sense? I sure hope so. It does to me.
Just keep swimming as they say. That's the goal for December!
What are your goals?
Have you had to step away from a project close to your heart to get ahead or gain clarity?
