2018 Goals

2018 is going to be a busy year, but hopefully one where I can knock out a lot of goals and “first-times.” Probably won’t make it out of the country this year, but I will be hitting up Florida for the first time ever and possibly Las Vegas too! These seem so basic and silly, but I am 30 and still haven’t been to either place, so I am excited.

I expect this year to be fairly transformative in terms of my business and career goals. I hit some good benchmarks in 2017 that are setting the stage for a successful 2018. The key will be follow-through and dedication to keep my momentum going.

I have committed to writing 100 blogs during 2018. This will be spread among my various websites and I also will count articles I write for other websites, but I will post a link to each here on this blog to track my progress!

I need to get my physical health in order, so I will be committing to 3 hours of exercise a week and will be pro-active in my meal planning to make sure that I am able to lose some weight in a healthy manner.
