🎉 2018 STEEM Targets Achieved – 2019 Here we Come. Happy New Year 🎉

in steem •  24 days ago

Wow what a messed-up year 2018 was.  Things were really crazy, life was busy, I had laughter and I had tears but all in all, I reached my targets and met some major milestones.

I didn’t really start to set targets for my self till September when I had the realization that I sacrificed my existing online business for time I was spending on STEEM and discord.  Well I did have a target I made at the start of the year.  That was to become a steem dolphin, and thankfully I reached that target in September.

However, September was a big turning point for me.  It was make or break in terms of my business and I had to get my head down.  I already posted almost two weeks back about publishing two new online courses before year end.  This was critical to move forward with my business and that target was achieved.  But I was still working on a few things that I really wanted to achieve by the end of 2018.  And of course, these were STEEM related.

On STEEM since I set my targets in September, I wanted achieve the following

1. Create an online course about STEEM.  Achieved.  This course was published early November and I am proud to say there are over 1100 Students already signed up for this free resource.


If you are new to STEEM this course is FREE, please do take a look, you just might learn something   😉  


2. Reach a STEEM reputation of 70.  To many this does not mean much.  Lets face it, Rep is easily purchases with the buying of votes and bidbots have really nailed that one down.  But I have not been a bidbot user and my rep of 70 has been earned the way it was originally intended.  I think it was 10 days ago I reached this target.  But for those of you not convinced, I also achieved a ranking of 89 with @steem-ua.  Its amazing to be in the top 100 of something 😊.  Target Achieved.


3. Find a way to integrate my existing online business with STEEM.  I really want to keep doing what I was doing before STEEM.  Spending so much time doing STEEM stuff left a major hole in my finances.  But I really want to continue doing STEEM stuff too and the only way is to combine them.  The other day I published my Excel Club STEEM business plan.   I found a way to integrate them with the use of Steempress.  One of the difficulties was revenue model.  My thoughts for a long time were focused in the wrong direction, how could I make STEEM with my existing business.  But then I realized I don’t need to make STEEM income to run a profitable business on STEEM.  I just need to utilize it to add value.


If you are interested in reading the full plan you can check it out here.  I published 3 days ago.  Target achieved.


4. Hold 10K SP.  I had 5K SP in September and I published that I wanted to double it.  Dang now just look at this 


And wait, hold on, there is more.  @theexcelclub also has over 400 SP too.  And I have a 50% share in @steemcommunity holding over 1900 SP.  This is after paying for our witness server with liquid earnings from my main account for the last 9 months and financing many contests and giveaways.  However, I did buy in.  I purchased a little over 2400 STEEM since September.  And I plan to buy more when 2019 sets in.  Target Achieved.

Its been a fun year on STEEM.  I have learned so much.  Met so many awesome people, made loads of friends and even an enemy or two.  There have been ups and there have been downs.  Sometimes I got things right, and sometimes I made mistakes.  That’s life.  The mistakes I made, I have learned from and they have made me more determined for 2019.

I want to wish every single one of you a happy new year.  No matter where you are from, or what you believe, we are steem, we are on the same team (oh my I am a poet now hehe).  I send you all warm wished and massive hugs. I’m not going to do a load of shout outs because there are really to many, but each and every one of you on steem that has engage with me, positively or negatively has had a impact on my thoughts this year.

Happy new year everyone
