2017 has been an incredible year for our business. My main goal was to grow our two membership sites and I put everything into it. The good news is that they grew, tremendously. Which means I am reaching my goal of impacting over 500 women every day in some way through our membership programs.
After re-recording every module in CRP 2.0 which comes out officially for new members in January, I am tired and a little burnt out. One of my strengths on the Strengsfinder is Maximizer which means I always want to make things better. Another one of my strengths is Focus which means that I have not had much time for improving anything else in my business.
This has meant that little things I really love like blogging and creating have come to a complete standstill. My business started with me sharing my ideas on a weekly basis through blogging. Classy Career Girl grew because readers kept coming back to my blog to see my posts. Our CCG blog and website traffic has continued to grow all year even with minimal posts from me thanks to our amazing guest contributors and Ivey and Emily on our editorial team. In 2018, I’m committing to blog consistently again. I’m already creating the January calendar and I can’t wait for you to see what’s coming.
I’m committed to write again and stay consistent. I have some pretty lofty goals of how much I want to write but I do hope that you continue to check back here frequently as we enter the new year and see the new exciting stuff we have planned for you. I really am excited to get back to where it all started and carve out my morning hours for blogging just like I did in the beginning.
When I started blogging, I had a full-time job and was going to business school. I was busy but still carved out the time because it was important. These days, the thing that keeps me away from blogging is my daughter’s abnormal morning sleep schedule and needing to manage my business more now since we brought on a lot of team members and interns in 2017. My leadership and my motherhood have taken priority. But, I know that every day I create something is a much better day. That’s why in 2018 I’m getting back to creating.
The most important lesson I’ve learned about blogging is that no matter what, I need to write a little bit each day. It doesn’t have to be perfect and it doesn’t have to take a few hours. It all starts by giving myself the time and space to plan out when I am going to blog. Then, the rest becomes easy.
