A more positive start to the year

Posted: 4th January 2009

When I blogged yesterday I think I was feeling a bit disparaged by what I’d discovered in our finances. It’s certainly not all bad but let’s say there’s definitely room for improvement. I often get frustrated by the feeling that we’re not moving forward – I work incredibly hard but the business can feel like it’s just standing still.

However, later on after a bit more thought (and a small glass of whisky which may have helped) my fighting spirit kicked in and I decided that 2009 is going to be the year that we turn things around. So there! I know what I want to achieve and have the beginnings of how I’m going to achieve it, so it’s now just a case of knuckling down and doing it.

I think my motto for the next few months will have to be “don’t be afraid of a bit of hard work”. Is it possible for me to work harder than I was already doing? Let’s see, shall we?

    Hi Emily

    Glad to hear you’ve found your fighting spirit again, not easy when the news all around is doom and gloom! Good luck with your plans…here’s to a successful 2009!

      Thanks Nicola. Almost lost it again this morning getting up in the dark to a cold house (our heating has broken!) but am working hard at keeping myself motivated.

      Happy New Year, here’s to a good one!
      Cheers, Emily
