My one word description of this year is:
I have reinvented myself this year.
My major reinvention is I started this year as an employee and I'm ending this year as a self employed social media content management virtual assistant with a growing slate of clients. I was dependent upon someone else for my income. Now I'm seriously thinking of raising my rates because I'm at the tipping point.
I balance clients with graduate school. I'm reaching the point where I'm close to being overbooked in my "work" hours. A great place to be if I must say so myself.
I'm utterly close to finishing my Master's degree in Emergency Management. I find myself looking for jobs in my new degree field but frustration is rising as what I want to do is matching with the positions I'm finding open.
There are several other things that I worked on this year and plan on reaping the dividends in the next year!
