As 2012 comes to its end, today, if you haven’t already done so, review the year now.

I’ve learned that disappointment is natural when you didn’t achieve all of the goals you’d wanted to do in this past year. However, I’ve learned too to celebrate what you did accomplish.

  • The Chinese proverb tells you that a journey of 1,000 miles starts with a single step
  • Likewise, putting together a 1,000 piece puzzle takes patience and persistence

With this in mind, I’ve reviewed my accomplishments in 2012:

  • 90 articles posted by Yahoo! Contributor Network
  • 48 reviews posted on
  • 1st ebook, How Relationship Selling Rewards Small Businesses, published on Kindle
  • Classes – at least 441 hours attended
  • 16 blog posts on
  • Including 7 Small Business Productivity Tips videos
  • Briefly got involved in deal site marketing
  • Most importantly, I finally found my niche: Your Retiree Business
  • I’ve made several major realizations thanks to Robert and Terri TallTree’s Miracle Mindshift Month, Gina Gaudio-Graves’ DU Bachelor’s Program and Andrea Woolf of (I misstated her site on this video.)

For me, 2013 is already forming up to be a very busy year with even more forward motion. I plan my first teleseminar on Your Retiree Business in late January or early February.

Make commitments to yourself to accomplish those dreams, desires and goals closest to your heart and beingness as that is how you will find the motivation to keep going after the initial way of excitement and enthusiasm dies away. You need this when your relationship with your goals for the New Year moves from the ‘honeymoon’ or ‘newlywed’ phase to remaining happily married when the reality of day-to-day living sets in.

About the Author

My first Kindle eBook, How Relationship Selling Rewards Small Businesses, went live on April 24, 2012. I've lived a lifetime of service and spiritual search so it's natural for me to incorporate these attitudes into my work. I believe that selling and marketing are spiritual service when done with a heart-centered, relationship selling approach. All of business success comes down to building strong relationships.
