Happy New Year SheBosses! I have a feeling that many of you will be elevating on multiple levels this year. Over the past four years, we have been reassessing, rebranding, and rebuilding. We have experienced changes in our careers, started new businesses, re-launched businesses, and all things in between. The number four represents support, stability, security, and consistency. Now that we have entered 2024, expect all those things to come to pass in your personal and professional lives. You have been laying the foundation for growth and development. Now it’s time to start building on that foundation. Every goal you reach this year will serve as a brick in the building of your own personal enterprise. Just like there are different shapes and sizes of houses on your street, everyone’s personal enterprise will be built differently and have its own structure. Therefore, don’t try to build yours like someone else’s. It’s never in our best interest to compare for similarities when it comes to building. Instead, you should compare to find out what you need to do to distinguish your brand and set yourself apart.
As you are building your personal and professional brand and preparing to start knocking down this year’s goals, you should have guiding principles to help you focus on the right things. I want you to keep these three in mind:
As you elevate to new levels, your mindset should elevate as well. The three things I just mentioned will be a part of that mindset. What got you where you are now will not necessarily take you where you are trying to go next. That “next level” thinking is vital in phase 2024. Elevation creates separation. As you grow you will be separated from some of the things you may be familiar with or that you are accustomed to. They may have once served a purpose but are not necessary for the work you need to do now. There are some things and people that should remain where they are as you advance because there will be no place for them on this new level you have reached. As you grow, everything and everyone can’t go.
Be bold and brave this year as you work towards making your dreams come true. Take more strategic, well-thought-out risks. Make that decision you have been avoiding. Do what you need to do for you. Go harder than you did over the last four years. Put in the work and you will reap the results.
I’m rooting for you!
Have a She-Bossy year!
