There are a few things I wish I knew before starting this blog. I can’t believe my blog has been live for a month! It seems like just yesterday I was working behind the scenes. Sometimes, I feel like I have been doing this forever. Other days, I’m trying to figure out how to make time to learn everything. I thought setting a blog up required work but that was really the easy part! Maintaining the content on the blog, social media marketing, and learning new skills after launching is the hard part!
Writing an annual Self-assessment or evaluation can be hard even if you are Boss Lady! Sometimes it is challenging to know all of the right elements to include, especially if you aren’t given much guidance. I find myself stuck between tooting my own horn and not giving myself enough credit for the things I have accomplished. Almost everyone has to write some sort of assessment. Even if your job says that it is “optional,” always take the opportunity to do self-reflection and evaluation. Completing these can be a great developmental opportunity. If you get useful feedback on a well-written assessment, it will for sure help you in your career. I have my top 5 tips every Boss Lady can use to write your best self-assessment yet!
I absolutely love the beginning of the month! There is just so much possibility and new opportunity accomplish goals and have a successful month. The start of this month is unique, considering it is the beginning of the last month of the year. I want to finish this year with the same momentum that I started with to ensure that my 201 8 will be just as successful. Below I have the things to do each month to maximize productivity.
Several months ago, I realized something was missing from life and I wasn’t balanced. Little did I know, I hadn’t truly found my purpose. Although I enjoyed the work that I did in my corporate job, it just wasn’t fully satisfying me. In both undergrad and my graduate program, I was always busy. When I reflect on that time now, I don’t even understand how I kept it all together and organized. I always made time for my interests.
Something I truly believe in is the statement “You make time for what you want to make time for.” I can’t stress how true that is whether it pertains to side hustles, relationships or even going to the gym. There were all these ideas I developed, yet there wasn’t any action put behind them. Simply put, I didn’t make time for myself.
