Yeah, I know, its kind of late to be talking about the New Year, but you will all just have to forgive me for that. Sometimes my Inner Procrastinator gets the best of my more conscious self.
I also really didn't have much to say at the time that the ball dropped. It wasn't as if the problems that we faced last year ceased to exist simply because we turned a page on the calendar.
This year is the first time I can recall consciously deciding NOT to make any New Year's resolutions. The truth is, I managed to accomplish a lot of the things I set out to do in 2014. The launch of the BlackPrint Project website has been exhilarating, exhausting, empowering and frustrating all at once. I have picked up some amazing tricks and resources over the past 12 months, and I've learned a lot about myself that I previously didn't know. I've interacted with, and met some amazing individuals along this path. My only regret is that I didn't do this sooner.
Its easy to set out every New Year with the commitment to doing things differently this time around, but the fact is, for me at least, I don't want to do anything differently than I did last year. In fact, the only promise I have made to myself was to do MORE of what I did last year. That means sharing more knowledge with you, helping more people, educating more people and ultimately, empowering more people.
I came across this 30 Day Economic Challenge (Shout out to Buy Black Economics), and decided I would commit to at least ONE of these challenges. I share this with all of you with the hope that you too will hold yourselves accountable for your own growth and progression this year.
Thank you all for your continued support, and just know that the best is yet to come.
