FBP 149 does not only mark the start of the year but also the fourth year of Freelance Blend! It’s been four year, Blenders! I look back at the years and all I feel is an overwhelming gratitude for the Freelance Blend community. Thank you for listening for the past 4 years as we all continue to grow and achieve our goals as freelancers. Thank you to all of you who have been listening since day 1. I am committed to serving all of you with more amazing, valuable, and insightful content for more years to come.
New Year, New Perspective
The start of the year is always the best time for introspection. It’s the moment when we look back to the year that was and when we envision what we hope the new year will be.
As for me, I will always remember 2017 as the year when I focused on freelancing. I spent the previous years building and growing Freelance Blend and attending to my speaking engagements. Finally, in 2017, I put all of my learnings into action and I was able to prove that I can earn well as a freelancer.
But what about 2018?
On our Facebook group chat early this year, Ginger Arboleda suggested a most timely topic: “What is your one word for the year?” (If you’re not a part of our group chat, join us on Telegram! See link below)
Ginger’s question is a good one as this allows us to focus on a direction that we want to take for the year.
Listen to FBP 149 as I explain my word of the year: GROWTH. Along with this word that I plan to stick to for the year, I also shared the Planning Spreadsheet that I used for 2017. It worked for me and immensely helped in achieving my goals so I’m sharing the sheet with you (plus a video of how to use it) on the Links and Resources section below.
