With the start of the year comes the daunting task of setting goals that will craft the vision for how you want your year (and beyond) to look. You don’t have to be a business woman to set goals. I’ma stay at home mom and I get goals all the time, although I have issues with sticking with them – but that’s another story. Which is why me and my blogger buddy Allaya hopped in our 2017 Mitsubishi Mirage G4 SE and traveled from NYC to DC in the  to attend VisionCon hosted by Thrive Lounge.

VisionCon was a one day vision board conference that brought together women from the DMV area (DC, Maryland & Virginia), and us from New York City to network and learn tips from like minded business women to help us better ourselves professionally for the new year. There were so many things this event taught me but there were some golden gems that stuck with me.

Have A Strong Inner Circle

Having people closest to you who are genuinely rooting for you and your happiness is one of the most important things you can have. Ask yourself, would the people who cheer for you when things great be there if you started struggling with tough times? If the answer is no, then it may be time to cut them loose. Having people you can count on and who will push you when you feel like quitting is one of the best things you can have when trying to achieve your goals.

Step Into Your Truth

Deciding to leave the corporate world was a decision that I didn’t take lightly, nor was the decision that I would take on blogging full time. There were circumstances that kept presenting itself to let me know going back to a cubicle wasn’t for me. I knew I needed to walk in my truth, and so should you. Stop worrying about society thinks about your change in career, as long as it makes you happy and you know you’re doing the right thing that’s all that matters.
