A World of Possibilities

Hey You!  Yeah- YOU.

I have been watching you, I have been thinking about you and I have seen a WORLD OF POSSIBILITIES for YOU in 2013.

Here is what I see in store for you in 2013:

I see you taking your business to a whole new level.
I see you finally quitting that damn job!
I see you taking a WHOLE month off with no guilt, just to frolic and play.
I see you starting that blog- finally.
I see you and me, on a beach, dipping our toes in the warm ocean water.
I see you putting your health, happiness and family first.
I see you breaking ties with things that hold you back and bolting into freedom.
I see you making up for lost kisses and missed opportunities.
I see you discovering your bliss and following it take you to new places.
I see you hiring that assistant you have been talking about forever.
I see you not caring about the mustn'ts, the shouldn'ts and the can'ts.
I see you being featured in a magazine.
I see you breaking your own sound barrier.

I see you, I get you, I love you!

And I want you to know, whatever's next for you, I am rooting. Like a maniac.

Tell me how I can support your undeniable amazingness. Holler and I'm there.

It is the last day of 2012, take a few minutes and look back over the past year. What did you accomplish? What are you proudest of? What things did you want to do that you never got around to doing? What things are you disappointed about?  

Sit down for ten minutes and make two lists- the things you accomplished, losing those last 10 pounds, running a marathon, opening an Etsy shop, painting your first picture, etc... and then make a list of the things you didn't do that you wish you had done- mending fences with an old friend you had a falling out with, starting your own website, eating healthier, learning to do something new, etc...

Now, look over those lists. What do you want to improve? Do you need to find resources like classes, online courses, help you achieve your goals? Do you need to hire an assistant, or just someone to clean your house, so you can spend more time doing what you love? Write down all the things you want, wish and desire for the new year. Write down what you can do to help make those things happen. Map out your goals for 2013, both personal and business, and if you have a business, write down how much money you want to make in the new year.

This year I expanded my business from just selling graphics on Etsy and my Great Graphics website to starting a membership site called My Friend Beth to help creative people learn how to sell on the internet, learn how to use photoshop to create things and how to make images for their websites. I took several online courses to learn how to make my businesses better. I learned about making videos (which I was terrified about doing at first), I learned more about internet marketing and have been sharing all I learn on my new website.

What will you do in 2013 to move your business forward?

For 2013, I am going to try and get more balance. I LOVE my businesses, but this year I am going to continue to love my business, but spend more time taking care of myself and my family. I am going to eat healthier, I am going to exercise more and I am going to take some time to do things I enjoy that have nothing to do with my business. 

What will you do in 2013 for yourself? for your family? for your health? for your happiness?

Remember, I have my eye on you. I am here if you need me. Happy 2013!
