Year of Accountability
I've never been one to make New Year Resolutions. "Go with the flow" has always been my mantra, but it's definitely to switch things up. This year I'm writing out my resolutions in hopes that it will be a point of reference throughout the year, as well as be a source of accountability.
Use My Voice and Be Heard
I've always had a very mellow, passive nature about me. I don't speak much, but I'm always listening to others, observing, and taking in what's going on in my surroundings. For a while, I didn't mind but lately I've been feeling suffocated by my passiveness. I'm tired of biting my tongue in fear of hurting other's by the truth-my truth! One of the best pieces of advice my business partner shared with me and it replays in my head everyday is that "Everybody gets hurt Diana!"
"Everybody gets hurt Diana!"
I also plan on saying NO a whole lot more this year. In the past, I took on a lot of projects that weren't on brand for me. I had set an unrealistic demand for consistent content for myself that I had to take on these projects to meet that demand. All this, eventually led to me feeling burnt out! I've decided to focus on a few main projects and partnerships this year so I can ensure I'm producing the best quality of content for CD as well as the brands I represent.

"Risk It to Get the Biscuit"
This year I'd like to register by blog as an LLC, develop brand exclusivity, as well and get management for my brand. There's a lot of information out there in relation to how to build a brand and yes you can definitely do it yourself but for now I've concluded that partnering with an agency that specializes in managing bloggers/content creators is the next step for me in achieving my blogger goals.
Go to CycleBar More Often
Yes, I am one of those people who made a fitness resolution this year! My main goal is to tone and build a little muscle. My biggest challenge in fitness is commitment. I usually go to 1 class, and the second class, and when things get too intense I'll skip a class, and soon enough it's been a few weeks of not going. Spin is no joke, but I know the benefits outweigh all my excuses of not going.
