I decided to take Christmas weekend (last weekend) off from blogging; I apologize for not giving you all a heads-up about that.
Now that we are officially in 2022, I wanted to share with you all some goals I made for myself for this year. I don’t make resolutions; I make goals. Goals are more attainable. Resolutions often involve changing one’s personality and that is difficult, if not impossible, to do.
So what are my goals for 2022?
- I want to add two more regular clients. By regular I mean clients who give me steady work. Don’t get me wrong; I value every single one of the clients I have ever had, whether they have given me one single assignment, a few here and there, or a steady flow. But I always feel guilty when I am in a dry spell and not making money. How am I going to add two more regular clients? Gasp…I don’t know yet! The ACES webinar that I am attending via Zoom on January 28 is supposed to shed some light on this issue. I’m also planning to research the best ways to win more clients.
2. I want to attend my first-ever editing conference. In the past, my finances have been a major roadblock to my doing so. However, at the end of August, one of the organizations to which I belong is having a conference in the same metropolitan area where I live, and I believe I can attend; no hotel to have to stay in. Now, if only the Metro will work well for a change…
3. A personal goal involving friendship.
That’s enough for this year, I believe.
I would like to add that, when I did the books for the end of 2021, I found that I turned a profit once again–and this time the profit was almost four times that of last year’s profit. Yay! Thank You, God!
