Time so down! I can remember sitting at my desk writing out my 2018 plan as clear as day. Now, a year later, I sit doing the same time for 2019. 2018 was a monumental year for Outdoors With Her and for me personally. In 2018 there was a lot of changes, growth, learning moments, even more fun & fishing!
I knew at one point I would need to make a decision about where to put my focus. 2018 proved to be that year. I went into January with the word “fruition” on my mind. How can I create - execute- and see the rewards of all my efforts within the 12 months I had. My 2018 goals were lofty, they were bold, they pushed me out of my comfort zone multiple times but they were so rewarding!

Throughout 2018 I found that education & mentorship were at the heart of everything I was doing. It is mentorship, that keeps propelling me forward. Seeing growth & learning in other people is what continues to keep me teaching, sharing, and running this business! There are a few goals I did not get to fully accomplish and that is OK! That is why they are WORKS IN PROGRESS!
in·ten·tion - noun - a thing intended; an aim or plan.
I choose the word “intention” for 2019. My focus this year is to execute each of my goals with intention. Do more things with intention and be intentional about what I choose to spend my time on. With that being said, here are a few of my public goals.
