Time For A Little Reflection (on 2014)
When I first thought about writing this post, I wasn’t sure that I would have very much to write about! 2014 was my first year of blogging and independent coaching and it wasn’t even until July that this became my full-time job. I hadn’t actually planned it that way, but I was forced to make a choice between my part-time job and self employment. Even though there wasn’t a lot of security in my paid job, it did provide a regular income, so letting that go was scary.
When it came down to it, however, I couldn’t not do this and at least the first stages were already in place. My Facebook page was up and running and I was privately coaching a few friends, so I felt committed and I knew that I couldn’t walk away. But bigger than that, it would have meant giving up on my dream. Thankfully, having a supportive husband meant that I didn’t have to!
Looking back, I know that I definitely made the right choice. I love my job; seeing people make positive changes in their lives and knowing that I have helped them get there is enormously rewarding. It can be hard being a ‘solopreneur’ but I’m never truly alone; I know that I can always turn to social media and my mentoring and mastermind groups for some online company. And thanks to the magic of wi-fi I can always pop out to a local cafe to sip on great coffee while I work!
What’s probably been most exciting for me is how much my business has evolved in such a short time and in ways that I hadn’t expected. At the beginning of 2014, I certainly didn’t imagine that I would be this far along – but I’m very glad that I am! As it turns out I do have a lot to look back on and not only be thankful for, but also to be proud of. I’ve come a long way in a short time and this is only the beginning.
Now that’s enough reflection, let’s leave 2014 behind us where it belongs and bring on 2015. I don’t about you, but I’m planning on having a great year.
