New year, new ideas

Well, it’s the end of the first week of 2012. I have been correcting cheques (checks) all week. Ha ha. Usually, this far into the year, I’d have already planned out my resolutions for the year. I’m a bit behind this year. I took a vacation to a sunny place and, well, my mind is still there. Actually, that’s got to be one of my resolutions. I need to take more vacations. I mean, sure, I take time off all the time. But I really love travelling and trying new foods. And while it’s been great to vacation throughout the Pacific Northwest in the past few years, I’d like to go further afield. So I’m going to build that into my plans. I’ve been a bit conservative on vacations since having kids, never sure if a long flight would be more work than it’s worth, but I think they’re at the age now where it’s manageable. This year, I’m going to expand my marketing business. I’ve got meetings with lawyers and accountants this week, as I want to do my homework. I’m also planning to do more public speaking and teaching. I’ve done a ton of that in the past several months, but I want to do more of it. I love teaching and the pressure to think on my feet makes me love my work even more. Plus I love seeing the sparkle in the eyes of entrepreneurs and professionals as they learn a new concept. How about you? What are you planning for 2012?
