New Year – What I’ve Learned In 2021

Folks, it’s been a minute. I won’t even get into the logistics of how long, what transpired and such. But, while the pandemic has been rearing its ugly head, making lives even more difficult than usual, suffice it to say—It’s been a doozy.

Will this year be groundbreaking? Nerve-wracking? Fulfilling? Or maybe daunting? It could be all or none for many. Yet, it could also be a mixed bag of everything.

Thankfully, some of us can say that we’re here for another year—by hook or crook. But, it’s unfortunate to think that many can’t say the same. Will this year be groundbreaking? Nerve-wracking? Fulfilling? Or maybe daunting? It could be all or none for many. Yet, it could also be a mixed bag of everything. We’ve all been privy to the maneuvering and changes we’ve experienced for almost two years to keep businesses afloat. It’s either been a where there’s a will, there’s a way option or, all or nothing was the way to go. Whichever path was taken, I hope it didn’t burden the load but helped you work through any obstacles presented.

2021 was simply not my year, guys. Even though the pandemic has its own set of challenges, I also faced a host of obstacles last year—my mom was hospitalized, being a single mom raising a toddler, the deaths of a few close friends, keeping my business going, and life all had me in a chokehold. I was emotionally and mentally exhausted. As a result, I put many things on the backburner. I sat down at the end of the year to do my year in review, and I jotted down the lessons I’ve learned and will take with me moving forward. Have you asked yourself the difficult questions? Have you thought about any highlights from difficult times that you can use moving forward? What lessons have you learned in 2021?

Have you asked yourself the difficult questions? Have you thought about any highlights from difficult times that you can use moving forward? What lessons have you learned in 2021?

Whether personal or business-wise, these lessons are major and cross-over for me. I hope you’ve been able to carve out the time to see what 2021 has taught you about your business and how you work. Even if they’re revelations you don’t want to hear (we’ve all been there!), take it in stride and make the necessary changes.

Oh, and don’t forget my last lesson: Don’t be afraid to soar.

Until next time…
