I’m excited. Not just because I passed the PHR exam, but because of all that lies ahead in 2012. I’ve gotten a few emails (that I still need to respond to) from people asking me what’s next amongst other things. I hadn’t thought much about it since my mind has been preoccupied. But now that I’ve cleared the main course off my plate, I can start focusing on the master plan. One that will hopefully allow me to flip dreams into tangible reality.
I’m excited for SBM. It’s becoming one of the best relationship-focused blogs out there. You could try to dispute this, but I won’t listen to you. 2012 will be our year. I already see great things happening. We’ve got some work to do, but the team is poised for greatness. You’ll see what I mean as the year goes on. Sh*t, you can probably see some of the changes now. Even if you’re not into relationship blogs, I think you’ll like what we have planned.
I’m excited for TRSJ. I was curious how things would turn out when I made the shift to positivity, motivation, and inspiration. On the real, I knew where I wanted this to go a while ago. If you’ve been around since the summer, I mentioned having a great idea that made me nervous to think about. This shift and a few other things I have on my tackle list are part of it. I’m happy to see that so many people have stuck around and continue to support what I’m doing. The best part is I don’t have to make my living off telling women what to do, or writing like I’m in left field. I can win by just being me.
Passing the exam didn’t just help me with my day gig credibility. It also helped me with where I wanna go overall. Remember that post I wrote on cover letters? That was a test to see how people would respond to that type of content. It went REALLY well, so I’ll be throwing in more career-related posts in 2012. The PHR gives me additional credibility to speak on what I already know. So it’ll be an easy transition for me, and a helpful transition for those that continue to follow along. I’ve always had career coaching in the back of my mind. Now’s the time to start heading in that direction along with my other pursuits.
Don’t worry. I’m not gonna suddenly put up a pic of me in a suit and start typing corporate jargon. My personality will always be anchored in my writing. You don’t understand how much fun I have writing about important topics, while still being able to inject humor and foolishness without losing the point. Oh yeah. As a heads up, you may start seeing my name other places. Once again, I’m excited.
Lastly, I want to thank everybody that’s offered encouragement and checked in on me while I pulled out my beard hairs. Proud you I shall make.
Leprechaun Kicks and Sh*t,
P.S. I wrote this post while listening to some of the most violent, ignorant, drug-laden rap music in existence. Guns and positivity are an odd combination.
