This is one of our final podcast episodes of 2021 - what?! It's time to take a look at how we did this year.
Before we get into the details and the tools of this episode, I'm sharing a personal story to make sure we are on the same page.
I've been self-employed since 2016 (wow!) and every year I take a day to set goals and have intentional time to review my previous year and see what I need to improve on and what I excelled at! A few years ago, I was meeting with a friend to review together. As I shared my accomplishments and my goals, she kindly pointed out that ALL of the things I mentioned were about one thing.
Everything I shared revolved around numbers, business performance, and how I could do more. She kindly pointed out the error of my ways and encouraged me to look at my personal life too.
What about personal development, relationships, faith, healthy habits? I knew it was important, but I obviously didn't put it on the same level as my business.
Fast forward...here we are years later and I'm a big believer in PERSONAL growth before BUSINESS growth. Your business can't grow at a sustainable rate unless you're growing and developing your SELF.
Listen to the whole episode for details, but I created a 2021 brand review worksheet for you to use this year to reflect on your year and start planning for a successful 2022 (in your personal life AND business). This worksheet will help you set the foundation for next week's episode that will dive a little deeper into goals and planning for the new year!
