When the year began I had a strategy to implement. I had an overall vision of things I wanted to accomplish. Like any aspiring entrepreneur I had created goals and had set plays into motion. The next 11 months involved countless hours of effort, sleepless nights and hustle. At first I didn’t know where this journey would take me but I kept moving on. The big goal for this year was exposure in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Partnerships built from previous years were put to the test and came out with flying colours. Many projects were taken on with a ton of effort and some rewarding results. The biggest accomplishment was the accolades received on the speaking circuit. I built some valuable alliances and headlines a few major events in the city. My proudest accomplishment this year was when I was asked to speak at three events for Social Media Week and followed up being involved at the SME put on by Soho at the Vancouver Convention Centre. The credibility and contacts built from those events were ground breaking for future alliances and plays!
Just when I thought I was ready to finish the year strong this showed up in my inbox!
