Can I be real? In my last blog post, I felt like a total Debbie Downer. If you missed it, I spelled out my biggest mistake in biz in 2017. When I asked if you would rather hear about mistakes or successes in my Year in Review, over 95% of responders wanted to hear about mistakes (interesting, right?). But, to be honest, when I hit publish, I felt a resounding “wah-wah” echo through my home office. The other thing that you wanted to hear about, that wasn’t such a bummer, was what I’m investing in for 2018. So, here it is.
I’m breaking down all my business investments for 2018.
For me – the more specific, the better. I don’t want someone to tell me to drink a green smoothie every morning… I want them to give me the ingredient list and tell me how long it takes to make. Is this just me?
In an effort to be completely honest, here’s my detailed list of how I’m investing in my business in 2018:

Other things will come up – I know that they will. But, from my perspective (as of this week), here’s what me and my bank account are 100% committed to.
