The old saying, “If you aim for nothing, you’ll hit it every time” is so true. As 2017 comes to a close, it’s time to think about the new year ahead and make plans to not just keep the business going, but to grow it and reach new heights.
I’ve actually been thinking about the new year since about October. By then, I could roughly see how the year would wrap up and started wondering about 2018. There’s a lot going on here.
- In January, I moved my studio from a leased space back home. (We had just bought a house and I had the perfect room for it.)
- This past summer, my brother and I started a new business together. We’re currently in the process of purchasing the building we leased for the business.
- Assuming the building sale goes through, I’ll have a perfect spot for my studio. Yes, moving out of the house and back to a commercial space. But hey, paying rent to myself isn’t all that bad. 🙂
Looking ahead to the new year, one of my goals is to do more audio post-production. I also want to record other people. Truthfully, I enjoy recording others more than I do myself. I’ve been a studio nut for years.
Here’s the thing though: one can set all sorts of goals for the new year, but if you don’t take action to get there, it’s just a neat idea and nothing more.
