It’s been way too long since I’ve posted here. There has been so much going on that I’ve been distracted. I made a big career change that I’m super excited about and got some much needed rest over for the holidays. I also had the chance to catch up with friends and make some new ones too. With the New Year just hours away, a lot of people are setting goals and thinking about what they want to do better in 2018. Many are trying to exercise more or eat healthier.
Those are awesome goals but I’m focused in a different direction. For me, 2018 will be about moving my career along. I used to do all my coding lessons on my work laptop because it was newer than my personal laptop. I am planning to get a new Mac with my tax return so I can keep up with my progress. If you have any recommendations, I am all ears! I want to keep picking up new skills so that one day I can achieve my goal of owning my own business.
As I mentioned before, I made a big career change. I start my new job on January 8th! It is a complete industry change as I am no longer in the nonprofit sector. I am excited to start doing Business Development for a local business. This is a great opportunity for me to learn new skills, pick up some new ones, and MAKE MORE MONEY!!!
Sometimes I think about what a huge shift it is and start to doubt myself. What if I can’t do it? What if I don’t learn fast enough? I’ve decided I’m not going to let self doubt rule me. It’s true, I could fail. BUT I could also succeed and that’s a risk worth taking. I choose to believe in myself. I’m going to kick butt just wait and see. What big risks are you taking in 2018?
