Since 2014 I have written these yearly reviews, and they've been helpful. The goal of the annual review is to help me time travel. The only way I'm going to remember my train of thought, my goals my successes and failures is to Read a blog post from my previous self.
I want to keep these reviews public so others can learn key takeaways from my year and also use them to implement in their own business. They say experience is the best teacher, but you can save massive amounts of time for reading someone else's story and learning to avoid their mistakes and failures.
My goals for 2016 were very ambitious, but I felt that I could reach them. Even though I did not reach all of my goals, I'm still Satisfied by how the year went because I have Clarity on what I'm going to do moving forward with my business.
You can read my 2015 yearly review but here were some of the goals that I had for 2016:
Relaunch of Business website, inPhocus Media
Create videos on a consistent basis
Complete the Freelance Jumpstart course
Launch Road to Launch Podcast
Episode Notes: http://freelancejumpstart.tv/55
There comes a time in everyone's business where they should take a step back and see if what they are doing is working. For me I've been working so much in my business, that now it's time for me to work on my business.
This has been a huge year of learning for me. I've gone to more conferences and online webinars than ever. Now it's time to apply what I'm learning. It's easy to critique other people's Website and make recommendations but what about my own? This year I have given advice to clients in when listening to myself speak I have realized I need to take my own advice.
About a year ago I took a chance on a conference. This conference was the seanwes Conference, and I was unsure of how things would go. Sean West is an online community for Creative entrepreneurs to build a sustainable business. I'm a part of this community, and I have received extreme value out of their online courses, podcast, and Live Events.
Another benefit to the community is the fact that they have an online chat system like no other. I made the commitment paid and invested over $1,000 and got ready to go to the conference.

Today marks the one year anniversary since I joined YouTube. I give a look into why I decided to join YouTube as well as the benefits to being on the platform.
About one year ago I realize that I needed to do a better job of teaching. Often times I would work with clients and I would learn so much during the client process but I would simply finish the project invoice the client and then I move onto the next one. However all of my experiences and everything I've learned simply just sat in my mind. After some time I realized I needed to do something with all of the learning that was taking place and it would be better to share it with others.
This gave birth to starting a podcast and in one year I learned so many things.
You don't have to know everything before you start teaching. You only need to know more then the audience who is listening to you. If you're willing just to share how you learn something and what you've discovered there's going to come someone who is a beginner and doesn't know anything and you are going to appeal to them.
I had the privilege to attend the VenturePOP Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana. This was the 2nd year I attended the conference and it was absolutely amazing. I wanted to share 10 essentials I learned at the conference.
This year I've been to more conferences than any other year of my life. If you are working in your business is important to take a step back and work on your business. One of the best ways to do this is to go to a conference around a particular subject that release your business and immerse yourself around like-minded people who are also trying to reach their business goals.
