What worked in 2015: Goal Setting

Today I want to share a little of my heart when it comes to goal setting. I am also going to share what worked in 2015! I love that how Lara Casey taught me that there is nothing magical about January 1st. Society often makes it seem like this is the day that we have to get our act together. We need to have clean homes, get out our exercise shoes, make sure all our emails are responded to, make sure that we have our goals in place and the list goes on and on and on. I know that I am not the only one who has felt like this. Goals are important. Sitting down and reviewing your year is important. Figuring what worked and what didn’t is important. However there is nothing anymore special about doing this in February than there is on January 1st. So whether you have gotten yourself together already and have a game plan for the upcoming year or you are reading this and have not yet found the time to work out your dreams for 2016 I want to send some encouragement your way…Don’t let the date on the calendar stop you. Don’t let what other people are posting on social media stop you. Just put pen to paper, when you can, wherever you can.

What worked in 2015

(1) GOAL – Attend at least 3 workshops to make me a better business owner and help me with my craft.

  • I had the amazing opportunity to attend Making Things Happen Conference in Chapel Hill, NC. Total game changer for me. When I first heard about this conference  I did not know what to expect but I knew that a lot of creatives whom I looked up to had attended and seemed to definitely be making it happen! I took the leap of faith and attended the March conference and it was truly an amazing experience. The atmosphere at MTH is distraction free allowing you two days to lean about yourself. After MTH I have implemented a lot of changes in my daily life as well as how I cultivate relationships with others.
  • I took Bonnie Bakhtiari’s Instagram with Authenticity class – a four week course to help you delve into a thoughtful social media strategy, examining how to best use this platform to your brand’s advantage. Bonnie is super sweet and this course was full of fun tips, tricks and tools to create authentic content.
  • I joined Studio Calico for their Marketing for Creatives class – This class really helped me step up my online marketing game with simple  tips on what to look for to make sure that all of your platforms are uniform shared by top notch creatives such as Amber Housley, Ashlee Profitt and Kim Stoegbaeur.

(2) GOAL – Have professional head shots taken.

    Bonnie - I love that you’re sharing what worked in 2015, Chelsea! That’s one of my favorite yearly practices that I learned from Lara, too. So glad to hear you found Instagram with Authenticity helpful, as well!
