2017 was a pretty solid year for me. I had many ups and downs and I learned from each of them. I picked up a handful of contract jobs, and they’re continuing to flow in this year. Jamvana, one of the jobs I picked up last year, has allowed me to speak at Full Sail and share my knowledge with students about the music industry. Another connection has landed me a spot to be on a podcast, which comes out on January 11. I’m excited for what opportunities that they’ll bring me.
With that being said, 2017 is in the past. There’s nothing I can do to change that but I can change the future. By leveraging the connections I built last year and working even harder, I know that 2018 is going to be even bigger and better. I’m already preparing my goals for this year and working hard to ensure that they become a reality. I know it’s cliche, but we must act if we want to see change in our lives.
I’m going to continue being tenacious in my endeavors. This is not always an easy feat, but it’s something that I must do to allow success to wiggle its way in.
My challenge to you is to do the same. Rid your life of negativity and things that are holding you back in order to move yourself both personally and professionally forward. It can be very difficult, but it’s an action that must happen in order to move forward.
I’m going to do everything in my power to make 2018 my year.
