One Entrepreneur's Journey To Find Greatness


31 Days of Blog Awesomeness – Part 1

Let’s Do This!

Last week I made a faux big announcement.  In the post I mentioned that I was going to blog each day in January and asked for insights on what I could share with readers of this blog.  For post #1 of the 31 Days of Blog Awesomeness I am going lay a small foundation for the rest of the month and then share with you a great way to reflect on this past year and prepare for 2011.

Readers of this blog and also comments on facebook had the following requests:

  1. PARTHA Says:  I really want to know how you started your own venture as an entrepreneur. What I am looking for a step by step guide to start up and own a new business.
  2. Ashley Says: Work-Life Balance…how do you mix work and family?
  3. Viwe Xozwa Says: Share with me what are some of the best ways to rid of work stress
  4. Sandy Says: How to take my new business to the next level (How to set up an online store and get into specialty retail stores)
  5. Mike Says:  Speed reading
  6. Lisa Says :SEO, effective uses of Facebook, blogging, favorite wordpress plug-ins, google adsense, best uses of twitter if you’re not a froyo shop, followers (quality vs quantity), custom WP themes, outsourcing, creating alliances with other blogs, and linkbuilding.

Luckily Lisa came in and saved the day with a lot of ideas, otherwise this would end up being the 5 days of Blog Okness.  I am going to cover all of these topics (and more, of course) during the 31 DoBA (like my new acronym?) and I’m excited to share.  I love setting up online retail stores, and they can be done in a couple of hours and look fantastic!

Disclaimer – I am not the worlds best at any of these subjects and will constantly be gleaning from other sources and turning to niche pros.  I will add in my personal experiences and the many mistakes I’ve made over the past years in business so that you can skip the pain and jump right to the valuable lessons.

31 DoBA – Day 1

A few years ago a childhood friend of mine, Deyl Kearin, shared a document on his blog that he had created to help him reflect on the past year and prepare for the coming one.  I’ve done it every year since and have loved the results.  Yesterday I took some time to read through my business journal (more on that later) and reflect on 2010 and then completed this two page worksheet.  I was so pleased with how 2010 ended up, especially after a particularly rough 2008 and 2009, and I am very excited about the 2011 that I want to create.

You can access the document here.

Wrap up
