When you're self-employed, it can be really easy to look past all the good and focus on everything going wrong.

This channel is an invitation to reflect on your wins (and losses) to celebrate with the group and share with us what you learned in the process.

  • Signed a big client? Let us know!
  • Had a big month of revenue? Let us know!
  • Finished a project you've been working on? We want to hear about it.

Anything that you want to celebrate, we are here to celebrate with you.

Every Friday to end the week we'll prompt you to share, but feel free to share any win at any time.

  • Sing up work a new course on Coursera - How to write emails for businessΒ 
  • had amazing feedback from my clients all are happy Β 
  • As always just learning :)

How are you liking your AirPod Pros, Jay? I've had mine for a couple of months. I like the sound better & they seem a bit more durable, but I hate that you have to squeeze the pros. I still find myself trying to double-tap the things.

This week I had 3 wins:
  • Completed a large .Net Core WebAPI project
  • Finished my first .Net Core Blazor project.
  • Hit my LinkedIn Learning & Pluralsight goals (Content Marketing and Dapper respectively).

Hey everyone,

It's time to share your biggest wins for the week! Just comment below πŸ‘‡ and share a couple of things you're proud of or that went right for you. Β 

This week was pretty intense for me because I wanted to allow myself to go fully off the grid through the weekend for a birthday trip with my partner, Mallory. She rented an Airbnb treehouse for us in the woods!

And thankfully, I got everything scheduled for this weekend and early next week so I can have some peace of mind when I head off the grid.

One of those projects was launching this community, so thanks for helping it get off to a strong start.

All in all, a great week!
  • Continued making progress on all the new projects I've taken on - starting to get the to do queue cleared!
  • Got to spend a lot of time outdoors/with family and friends for the holiday weekend
  • Was able to give and receive feedback on some important decisions with a few friends
1. I am busy with a novel and is 14 000 words into it. Β 
2. I have completed my third week with The Artist's Way byΒ  Julia Cameron and enjoy the morning papers immensely.Β 
3. Not an accomplishment but applied for a virtual assistant position and was not considered for the work. The person didn't even honour the interview schedule. I felt down about it since I really need the work but then... it is all about attitude so keep the chin up and continue on this path, right.Β
