Whether 2017 has been good for you, or has left you exhausted for all the things you’ve done, truly, it has its own ups and downs; and this makes the upcoming year even more interesting.
What are you looking forward to for the year 2018? This new year has been nothing but exciting for all of us, as there are so many amusing things to do throughout each of our careers, so many trends we need to keep ourselves updated with, and so many goals we need to accomplish! In this article, we have compiled fascinating thoughts from Virtual Assistants across the world in response to the question;
What are you looking forward to for the year 2018?
I have a positive outlook towards 2018. Put more focus and commitment into advancing my e-commerce skills that enable me to go to the next level. Be more consistent on my blog. Continue to alter traditional opinions about the endless possibilities of the digital industry that is shaping our world.
I am looking forward to growing my business in 2018 which will include moving to an office location and taking on some part time staff by the end of 2018 to cope with the growing demand. It’s going to be a challenge but one I am looking forward to.
All of the new opportunities that freelancing will bring me! Just last week, I was asked by a client if I would be open to learning more under her in order to allow her business to grow and expand in 2018 (with my help!). This is a huge opportunity for both of us, and one I am really looking forward to! The beauty in freelancing is that your skill set is constantly evolving and expanding, due to working with clients with various backgrounds and areas of expertise. 2018 is sure to be a great year!
In the year 2018, I am looking forward to exciting new possibilities, hitting some health and fitness goals, meeting new clients and designing additional websites. Most importantly, I’m excited about my word of the year, Peace. To have peace (to me) means to be confident in your decisions and to have no fears and those are my goals for 2018.
I read earlier this week that choosing peace signals your intention to be an activator of life instead of a passive bystander. I want peace to shape and impact everything I do and say. Peace to me also means to be fearless, confident in my decisions and to remove all worries of what others think…and to me that sounds peaceful. Here’s to a wonderful 2018, full of peace!
What I’m looking forward to for the year 2018 is to grow my business by reconnecting with past clients, focus on my current clients’ success, welcome new clients, and continue to learn new skills, apps, processes and procedures so I can help all my clients be more successful in the new year and beyond.
For 2018 I am looking forward to expanding my geographical area and reaching more clients. I want to help other small business owners build their business and add value by going the extra mile. I want my clients to feel that I am invested in the success of their business by leading them through the process of having a virtual assistant for their business.
I am looking forward to launching my mentoring service in the early part of the year.
I am looking forward to seeing what I can accomplish with conscious goals and concerted effort. 2017 was an interesting year for me; I mostly “flew by the seat of my pants,” as they say. 2018 is going to be about planning and growing. I’m so excited to see where the year takes me!
I am looking forward to starting my own online business in 2018. Over the years as a Virtual Assistant, I have gained valuable experience and insights in running digital campaigns, email marketing and social media management and marketing. I hope more VAs will be able to have the courage to make it on their own.
2018 to me is about growth and repositioning my business to specialise in Content Creation. I am most looking forward to working with more creative women in business. I am planning on spending lots of time creating, both for clients and my own business. A few projects I’ve developed to celebrate and support creative women in business are coming to life in 2018 and I can’t wait to share them!
2018 will be the year that I turn my dreams into reality!
In 2018, I’m looking forward to growing my business, paying off my school loans and traveling! I also hope to gain clarity on how to best use my skill set and passions to give back.
Some of the things that I am looking forward to in 2018:
The ability to continue to shape and improve my VA business in order to be able to continue to serve my clients with the highest degree of customer service, since I believe that is the foundation for all else that I do for them.
I’m looking forward to continuing to build stronger relationships with my clients so that I can even better understand and take part in the success of their businesses.
I’m looking forward to creating and building new relationships and interests outside of my VA business, so that I can create a better work-life balance, which for me, continues to be a work in progress.
I’m looking forward to finding more ways to serve others, since that is I believe what we are called to do.
For 2018, I’m looking forward to expanding my skills. There are several skills that I’ve started developing, and I really want to hone them and solidify them so I have something new to offer my clients.
I am really looking forward to working with some interesting businesses and meeting new people for the coming year. Exciting times ahead!
I always look forward to the new year because it starts a fresh slate of ideas, research, planning, and new clients. It’s as if my brain is tuned in to a higher and fresh skill set. I want to start the year on a high for my clients. Whatever I do, it will be helpful, energetic, and thoughtful for them.
I’m looking forward to fine-tuning my business in 2018. I no-longer feel like a beginner (though certainly not an expert), and I’d love my work to reflect that. I want to streamline my billing, my client tracking, and my communication. I know the satisfaction this will bring me as an independent contractor, and the benefits to my business will be great!
What I am looking forward to in the year 2018 is working towards my dream of creating a successful non-profit. I am going to help others, help themselves, and share their stories along the way!
I am looking forward to a year where I’ve clearly defined my priorities and moved all else off my list! I’m looking forward to a year of balance, health and general satisfaction 🙂
From a business perspective, come September when my daughter starts school, I am most looking forward to being able to dedicate more time to grow and to take my Virtual Assistant business to the next level. From a personal perspective, I don’t want September to ever come! I don’t want to ever lose those mid-week special Mummy/Daughter days, which I am told by other parents I will never get back. Nevertheless, the day will come and I know it will be an exciting new adventure for both of us.
How about you? What excites you for the year ahead? Thinking about the great things headed our way is definitely a great way to start 2018 positively. So grab your new year hats on (it’s never too late!) and let’s celebrate the exciting times ahead!
