Today, I’m walking you through my 10-question annual review process, discussing how I approach looking back at the previous year and planning for the future.
If you ever feel like the work you are doing in your business isn’t “enough,” or you feel down, like you haven’t accomplished enough, first: I see you, I hear you. I’ve felt the same way so often. Here’s why it can seem like business is so slow, and how to widen the lens to account for all the things (ALL THE THINGS) you really do.
Every year I sit down and use these ten questions to reflect back on the year, and to look forward and think about the year ahead. Doing an annual review has been one of my favorite practices. Here’s how to do your own.

I turn 34 this month, and I thought I’d go back and list all the things I wish my 24-year old self would have known. On the list? Take all the adventures you can. When in doubt, pick something, and then learn from the choosing. Stop trying to be perfect and well-liked, because that is certainly a fool’s errand. And I give my past self advice about money, sex, feminism, and trying to pick the “right” career.
