Looking back on 2013, it was a wild year, filled with ups and downs. I had a great year, but there are a few things I wish I would have done differently. Hopefully I can learn from them and make 2014 even better!
In 2013 I wish I would have,
Built a new site. I spent most of 2013 trying to play defense from Big G’s updates. In 2013, I plan to go on the offence and develop some new properties.
Record more stats. I told myself I would get more organized and keep track of my revenue and expenses. I had a good year, but did a horrible job of keeping track of everything.
Spent more time doing and less time reading and making lists. I had a really busy year, but in my free time I spent too much time planning and reading. In the last few weeks I took some action, by hiring a new writer and app developer, but it was too late. More on the new hires later.
Written more on this blog. Writing allows me to hold myself accountable and learn from my readers. In general, I wish I would have updated all of my sites more often.
Learned more about the new gTLD’s. Our industry is about to grow which presents huge opportunities and I feel like I’m sitting on the sidelines with no idea what is going on. I plan on doing some work to make sure I am ready for the madness.
Set realistic goals. I’m 21 and a full time college student with a whole lot going on. I do not have time to do this full time so I need to make sure I focus on the most important things to my business.
What is one thing you wish you did in 2013?
