No lie, I've been putting off writing this post. It hasn't been because I've been super busy with clients or super busy filling orders for my online store, Stall 17, either.
It's because 2017 was a total drag and this post is going to be embarrassing as all hell to publish.
My first year in business with Writing Dressage, 2016, was pretty good. It was before I really settled on doing one-on-one coaching with clients, and all I was really focused on was blogging consistently and figuring out how I could best help equine small business owners. Basically, 2016 was spent doing a lot of thinking.
By the end of 2016, early 2017, I figured out what I wanted to do, and holy cow I was excited about it! I had all these plans about what I could do to help equestrians. In February, I wrote out a pretty thorough business plan, put together a vision board, and planned on having a bangin' 2017.
There was just one problem: I was a little overzealous in my planning. A little more than a little. I sort of forgot to factor in real life, and the fact that there would be plenty of road blocks to pop up throughout the year.
