July 2017 Accomplishments

I admit when I first write down my monthly accomplishments this is only one thing: getting more Facebook followers. I will say that I have nearly forgotten that this month is my anniversary month. This changes everything because I have survived and thrived on the blogosphere! Below are my July accomplishments:

  • Gain more Facebook followers
  • Celebrate 2-year anniversary!

July is my anniversary month! I am very happy to have blogged for 2 years! Yes, I have created my site on July 31, 2015 and my first post is that generic WordPress site post but dang it – I am up on the Internet and ready for business! Blogging on this site has transformed me personally and professionally. Personally I have gained a whole new level of endurance from being consistent. Blogging is hard! I have to keep coming up with new ideas, concepts, and ways to expand. When I started in 2015, there were no Blogtalkradio podcast, now YouTube Live episodes, Facebook Live, nothing; just me, my laptop and my thoughts. I wanted to create a place where people can read about and enact positive change principles. I wanted to counter the notion that all change was negative. After 2 years, I felt that I had accomplished. Indeed, at the 2-year mark I was just getting started.

It took me up to this point to actually figure out a monetization strategy. Moving forward, I feel that I to do more ways of monetizing. I do see a positive mug and TV line in the very near future because I have been wanting to do that since the beginning. Now I am in a position to accomplish this.

Revisiting July 2017 Goals

August is here! That means checking in to see if I have fulfilled my July goals. http://positivitychange.com/2017/07/july-2017-monthly-goals/ Below I am revisiting them:

What I have accomplished:

  • Had highlighted and promoted my online products and shop

What I haven’t accomplished:

  • Didn’t run my 31 days of positivity
  • Didn’t experiment with YouTube Live for Positive Change Radio
  • Didn’t debut my new product this month
  • Didn’t increase my subscribers

Why haven’t I accomplished these goals:

  • I didn’t have time. Doing the two Expand Your Personal Brand livestreams, eBay livestreams and other blog-related livestreams, I didn’t have enough energy.

Am I going to take any of these unfinished July goals into August?

I am not running a 31 days of positivity. I have another series that I am running. I may do Positive Change Radio YouTube Live episodes. I don’t see me promoting the product that I wanted in July. I will create a new freebie and email sequence this month to increase my subscribers. More subscribers = more money.

PositivityChange Post : Issue 43 : Positively Moving in the Right Direction

Hey everyone!

I am also very big on storytelling and being transparent. I have been an eBay reseller for a little over one year. I have experienced ups and downs like anyone else. I am glad to have this extra income to give me more choices. Lately I have been receiving weird activity (unpaid item strikes from people who don’t buy, fraud, etc.), however, I’ve pushed through because that’s what we do here! Yet, I admit it had me questioning if I want to continue. Earlier this month, I received a sale and was going to take the Fourth of July off. I meant it was the holiday so why not? Then I saw one of the YouTubers I subscribed to drop a fresh new video into my feed, the day BEFORE the Fourth of July! It forced me to boss up and do my eBay livestream on July 3rd. I didn’t know that this small spark would result in my receiving 9 sales in 2 weeks! It is all about positively moving forward in the right direction. Watch my video here:

Yes, we are at the midpoint of July. I know that we will all end our July much better than we have started.

PositivityChange Post : Issue 41 : Declare Your Independence from Indifference

I wish all of my loyal readers, a Happy Fourth of July! In keeping with this holiday’s independence theme, this issue will cover how to overcome indifference and mediocrity; and, I will use myself as an example!

Oftentimes we don’t know how we’ve gotten stuck. It is not an overnight occurrence. It happens gradually. Your standards start slipping. You become okay with it not being to your standards because no one will notice that minor defect; however, that minor defect becomes a major one and people start noticing. Once they start noticing they start coming to you about it; and, then you wonder how has the quality decreased so significantly that you hardly recognize your work, and in some instances your life? Well, that’s because we become comfortable with just being okay. Mediocrity erodes a lot faster than excellence. I am bringing this example up because I have experienced this in my life while studying for the ITIL certification.

PositivityChange Post – Issue 40 – Here’s to a Positive Halfway Point

Hey everyone!

This week marks not only the end of June but the first half of 2017. This is a great time to reflect on what accomplishments we’ve made during these first six months. If you are unsatisfied about your progress then you have a whole nother six months to get it right; or, at least start over. Now in June is a perfect time to press the restart button is you don’t feel that you’ve accomplished as much as you want.

As for moi, I have some great news that I wish to share. I have completed one of my 2017 accomplishments by passing the ITIL Foundation certification!  I have been wanting to obtain this certification for nearly one year. I have received some training money so I am grateful about this.

Here are the resources that will help you evaluate and press the reset button (if necessary) during the halfway point

Stacia Pierce of the Huffington Post gives you her 5 tips for pressing the reset button if you feel like you are stuck in your career:
