The year 2017 is coming to an end and this is usually the time when I introspect on what I’ve done and accomplished the past year. Last year in December was when I decided to take a leap of faith and pursue blogging full time.

Over the course of the year, I’ve grown and expanded my influence and learned a lot more about this industry. Doing something on the creative side has been really fulfilling and I’m constantly focusing on what I can do better. I couldn’t have been happier to leave my day job to do freelancing work full time and I really want to encourage my readers to pursue their passion. Be pragmatic with your decisions as well, but don’t settle for less cause your career is going to be a journey that you embark for the rest of your post-grad life.

The year 2017 was quite tumultuous for me where I faced a lot of uncertainty and anxieties about freelancing full time for the first time. Now that I’m getting the groove of things, I’m really looking forward to the year 2018 and I have a lot of anticipation of the opportunities that I will encounter. 2017 has taught me to believe in myself more and know my worth in the industry and I’m looking forward to continue sharing my story with you guys.

What has 2017 taught you?
