Its New Year's which means you're supposed to talk about new years things and goals and junk.
I'm not really going to do that. I prefer to think of this as Year 38 of my life long saga. This year's storyline is to DO THE THINGS! I've put lots of things in place the past two years, invested a lot of money, worked until my body was so sore I couldn't sleep, kicked myself to be a better business person, rider, mom, you name it so this year we just have to do the things.
Sounds easy, right?
I know it's going to be a hard year because I'm growing my dog business, the horses, and still working full time. Someday I'll be able to quit my job but in the meantime, I need the regular paycheck to help support all the things we're doing as we get better and grow more. Our/my goal in about 5 years is to be a professional dog/horse trainer (can't pick just one, right?) with several other dog trainers helping support that business while I work on improving and expanding my sale horses. After the 5 year mark, the goal is to head towards 50ish acres of our own land, building a house, building a horse facility, and holding dog training/boarding/events on the property.
So yeah, it's an awesome and exciting place for us to be in but we have a lot of work to go through in the meantime to get to that goal. I'm really excited to actual realize my goal and even more excited to realize that they are totally within my reach. The past year has been amazing with all the clients, trainers, friends, strangers, etc telling me how awesome and talented I am. It's tough for me to believe since I've been struggling for SO LONG but I'm finally seeing what they see and it's sooo confidence building and exciting.
Here's to rocking 2017 and sleeping when we're dead!
