What a difference a year makes! Last year I made a New Year's Resolution to blog once a week. Back then, starting a blog was a huge deal for me. But I loved it.
And so I blogged. I blogged once a week, sometimes twice a week.
Bloggity blog blog...
And from the blogging I found confidence. And as the year went by, my confidence grew. Tentatively, but still - it grew.
Then in August, clearly drunk on my own self-confidence, I dared to dream: could I start my own business? Would anybody pay me for my professional skills and knowledge? Turns out they would. And they did. And they still do.
And I thought "well shit, this is pretty good!"
So I enter 2013 with my whiteboard covered in scribbled quotes ("There is no elevator to success - you have to take the stairs") and goals ("attend one networking event per month"). Behind me I have an army of supportive friends and family and I look forward to the journey that 2013 will bring me. I'm gaining in self-confidence and the sky's the limit when you believe in yourself.
Happy New Year everybody :)
