2015 has been quite the journey. It has been filled with new discoveries, challenges and successes, as well as a few bumps on the road. As we get ready to celebrate the end of 2015 & beginning of 2016, I wanted to take this time to thank you all for your support. I started B&C almost 2 years ago(it’ll be 2 years this February), not knowing what, if anything would come of it. And look what all has happened. Thank you all for the support, it means a great deal!
In 2016, I plan to share with you some more amazing experiences, even better and grander than those from 2015.
In the meantime, here’s a little inspiration to help you in the new year.
May you take time to review the mistakes made in 2015, so that you can have a fresh new year. Take time to recuperate, so that you can come up with a better and smarter strategy to make the new year a success. Learn from those mistakes so that you don’t continue repeating them every single year, this advice is for both business and personal lives.
Set clear realistic goals, I’d suggest one or two tough ones, that are important. Then make it your mission to do everything you can to get you to reach that goal. If it meals working harder, applying yourself more, networking, changing your social circle, moving elsewhere, going back to school, etc. Put together a plan and work everyday day knowing the end prize. Be more strategic, make an investment into yourself or your business. Let’s have a grand 2016!
