Hello 2017!

I adore reinvention. Every new year I am excited by the seemingly limitless possibilities. No matter how tough the preceding year has been, I shake it off, read all the January issues of my favourite magazines and think about my hopes for the coming year.

In preparation for 2017 I read She Takes On the World by Natalie Macneil and the companion planner The Conquer Kit. In these books I found a whole lot of inspiration and motivation for my entrepreneurial endeavours. I have read a lot of books on career, blogging, social media etc and often feel I have not taken much new away from them. Not the case here, these books really got me thinking about what I want to achieve in 2017 and helped me to drill down with helpful and interesting exercises.

The key idea running through everything I want from 2017, is to start living on purpose. To stop waiting for “someday”. Someday isn’t good enough anymore, I’m ready now.

If you’re not feeling entrepreneurial, my other recommended reads are The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F*ck  by Sarah Knight and Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls by Jes Baker.

Wherever you found yourself at the end of 2016 I urge you find some inspiration and motivation for the new year. It is never too late to start living the life you want – to start living on purpose.
