For 2017, I wanted to share with you my upcoming goals for the year. In no particular order, I listed out my nine goals for this year. But before I dive in with all the goods, I thought I’d review my accomplishments from the last year….


Crickets, crickets….


That’s right guys. Nothing. In the past, I haven’t always set specific goals that I want to achieve. I remember, vividly, last year, attempting to right down my resolutions for 2016. However, I didn’t get very far with those. I think I MAYBE wrote down (because I believe putting pen to paper helps with accountability) 1 or 2 items I wanted to complete by the end of the year. Unfortunately, no progress was made and I don’t even remember what I wanted to achieve. In 2017, I’ve set the bar higher for myself. I am currently a stay at home mom whose current most exciting accomplishment is having a clean bathroom. Talk about “goals”….am I right?!


At the end of 2016, I really evaluated what I wanted for myself moving forward. Although, after really diving deep, I was able to uncover a few items, like taking Ella on her first roller coaster and becoming friends with an amazing group of fellow moms. But now, there’s only one place left to go, and that is forward. One of my favorite motivational business leaders, Gary Vaynerchuk, always emphasizes “beginning with the end in mind.”


So therefore, for 2017, I am currently envisioning my end of the year. I have decided on 9 personal goals that I am going to achieve by the end of the year. Have a look……

I challenge you all to think about your accomplishments from 2016, and then move forward. 2017 is a new year, full of new days to hit those goals! I can’t wait to look back at the end of the year and see the progress I’ve made!
