I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what changes I want to make for the new year, and while I am not sure where exactly I will end up at the end of 2009, I do know what direction I want to go, and what directions I do not want to go.
I am thinking of doing more training, more consulting, and more web projects (my own or joint venture). These are things I love and am passionate about, and fit my work habits.
On the other hand, some of the things I plan on not doing this year:
- I will not be fixing people’s computers for pay. (I may fix some close friend’s computers, but I actually hate fixing computers yet everyone seems to ask me to. From now on if customers ask, I don’t do that anymore.)
- I will not be designing websites for other people (except for my own or joint ventures…. I will outsource or refer the web design requests I constantly get. Speaking of which I need to find some reliable people to refer business to who pay referral fees. I’ll continue the web hosting and related services business, however.)
- I will not be giving personal discounts, working cheap or working for free anymore.
- I will not get sucked into businesses or jobs that I am not passionate about, even if there are promises of big money.
What I am passionate about is:
- Helping people be successful in their own businesses, ventures or careers.
- Training, consulting and educating people. Making people think. Watching them grow and develop.
- Creating multiple streams of residual income from websites and businesses I create (myself or with others).
And this year I resolve to do what I am passionate about. Hopefully what they say is true. Do what you love and the money will follow. And luckily I am good at what I am passionate about, so I think it will be true. 🙂
2009 will be a good year for me I think. I still have more planning to do to make sure it goes the way I want, but I already know what course I want to take, and that is half the battle. 🙂
Helping people embrace life's opportunities.™
