2017 was an awesome year of clarity for me. I gained the courage to say what I wanted and go after it.
Last year I set out with a goal to grow my digital marketing skills. In the beginning, I was trying to get my certifications and do the projects which left me feeling a little overwhelmed.
I really wanted to get my certifications done so I focused on those instead of trying to spread myself too thin. I often fall into the procrastination/learning loop, where I am spending all of your time learning and never actually doing. It really is just a side effect of fear – if you are always learning you never have to actually produce something which means that you won’t fail.
So I gave myself permission to learn without the distraction of doing. I figured this would fulfill my need to learn which will take off the pressure of actually performing. I decided on what skills I needed brushing up on and choose one class to divulge. Now I can’t make the excuse that I don’t know how to do something because technically I do.
The result – I’ve obtained all of the certifications I wanted and have a deeper understanding of certain skills.
Now, I have to perform – actually do what I set out to do and spent so much time learning.
THE PLOT TWIST
I’m actually going to work on the lead generation site with one of my friends. Well, she’s more like a sister. Over the years we’ve partnered on many projects but our hearts have always been with Real Estate. Since we decided to work on some Real Estate investing projects together, I decided that this would be the focus of my real estate lead generation site.
Having help with this site will be amazing and I’m so excited.
