Happy New Year! Goodbye 2013, Hello 2014!! by @tnt_tauna
Happy New Year Everyone!
I hope that you had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family. Another year has flown by and I welcome 2014 with open arms. This year I’ve learned that age and time are all relative. For example, a two year old believes a year is a long time because that is half their lifetime but a 70 year old feels like a year goes by at the blink of an eye because it is one seventieth of his lifetime. That is why time seems to speed up as you get older. As I became an adult, I learned that reflecting on the past year and writing out my goals for the new one was time well spent. So I thought, why not publish it on my blog so all of my friends, family, and wonderful readers can hold me accountable for what I hope to achieve?!
First, I reviewed last year’s letter to account for the milestones my amazing team and I have crossed since setting my goals last year. Here’s some things from that list that we have accomplished… We successfully moved the blog last year from wordpress.com to a self-hosted site. It’s still a work in progress but I anticipate that it always will be with all of the updates we constantly have to make to the site, which is actually a good thing because it means we are producing original content at a fast pace, especially since Dynamite Editorials has been getting so much press lately from all of the editorial photo shoots we are producing and getting published in magazines. One of my goals last year was to get more of my work published and this year we produced 4 photo shoots that were published in 12 magazines!! I’ve certainly been learning a lot along the way with my studies in Fashion at Orange Coast College. I’ve stayed focused on school and this Spring will be my last semester before I graduate!! I’ve accomplished my goal of working on more productions and recently joined Fashion Group Society with whom I hope to partner with this year to begin producing networking events for people in the fashion industry in Orange County (Save the Date: Feb. 2nd 2014 – More details soon).
There’s so much more that I’ve done this year that wasn’t on my goals list last year but made for some special moments. A special thanks goes out to all of the fabulous people that I worked with last year who helped me reach my goals. Take a look at some of my favorite behind the scenes moments from 2013:
I have high hopes for 2014 and look forward to what this year will bring! I think it’s been hard over the last few years for people in general to have hope for the future due to our country’s economic recession but change is in the air, I can feel it. Despite whatever economic outlook this year may bring, I am setting the following goals for 2014:
- Continue to develop Dynamite Editorials into a production company and public relations firm.
- Finish School.
- Begin producing networking events for the fashion industry with Fashion Group Society.
- Develop more relationships with local brands on a personal level.
- Create more contests for my readers to win right here on the blog 😉
- Keep having fun living life and loving what I do!
