How things have changed since the beginning of 2018.
|When I think about everything that happened in my life and my business in 2018, only one word sums up the year: Growth.
I have grown as a business person since the beginning of 2018. I have learned that I can’t, and don’t have to, go it alone in my business. I might not have the support from family and friends that most business people have in the beginning, but what I do have is the support of my Facebook community. I have gotten feedback on the name of my new membership site. I have gotten support about the different tools I need to use to create my site. My Facebook community has been so supportive in encouraging me and keeping me going when things have been tough or confusing. I thought that without family support I was all alone in building my business. This is certainly not true, and it was a lesson I was delighted to learn.
I have grown as a person. I have developed so much discipline and strength. I have a daily routine that I follow which helps me get things done and get my goals accomplished. I have learned to not stress out and trust that if I follow my routine, I will get things done. I have learned to trust myself and my own talents. I am a much more mature and disciplined person now.
I have grown as a personal partner. I have learned that putting my views and needs forward in my relationship with my boyfriend is essential and easier than I thought. I have learned that my needs are as important as the needs of my boyfriend and I as a couple. I have learned to discuss things, in detail, with my boyfriend and work out we can handle my business needs together. I have gotten to the point where I know that thinking about myself does not preclude being supportive of my boyfriend and our life together.
I hope to do more growing in the next year. The year is almost half gone, but many good things will be happening.
