When I sat down with my accountant this year, she congratulated me … Congrats for a good year. While I was working through the year, it didn’t feel especially remarkable. I was pregnant, moved into a new home, and my business was growing (which took a lot of learning). The whole year felt like I was working really hard, but not really going anywhere. After the congrats, I realized: I am so much more than when I started.

Beyond the pennies, I am a better business person. I am more creative. I am able to create brand identities that people are proud to share. So see, I have grown. Last year was remarkable, because I grew as a person and as a business owner.

So I pose this question to you: Have you thought about how far you’ve come? It’s easy to think you’re treading water … but really, you’re amazing. You’ve grown a business with your hard work & heart. For this, you deserve to hear what I heard: Congrats! I’d love for you to share something positive about your journey or where you are now in the comments. It’s time to celebrate!!!

  1. Thank you for this post! It was exactly what I needed to read/think about today. I relaunched my business this year under a new brand and I’m beyond excited about it. Personal circumstances have prevented me from creating the kind of momentum I was hoping for at this point, but I have so much to be grateful for! I may not be anywhere close to my destination, but my ship is finally pointed in the right direction and I’m enjoying the journey. So cheers to that!

    Congratulations on your personal and business growth! It’s no small achievement!
