  1. Great wrap up, Carrie! I also loved meeting you in 2017 (and mentioned pretty much the same thing in my year in review!). Let’s be honest though, my real highlight of the year was following your dogs on Instagram 😉

    Here’s to many more (purposeful) adventures in 2018. I hope our paths cross again soon.

  2. I love this Carrie! Thanks for sharing. My theme for 2018 is “purposeful” so I can relate to your goals as well 🙂 thanks for inspiring, teaching, leading and connecting

  3. Hi Carrie:

    Your YIR strikes a common theme that I heard from many people in my circles, and something I felt myself. That feeling of being stretched too thin (scraped like butter over too much bread) – doing too many things that didn’t get us closer to a goal.

    I noticed many people making drastic changes, and I underwent that too, in an effort to focus on things that make us happy, and not merely things we felt obligated to do.

    Personally, I can attest that the last quarter of the year was the most stress-free for myself, as I had shed many of the things that (in-part) may have been keeping me from my longer term goals.

    I believe that you will find renewed energy and resolve by stepping back to that still, small place for a minute, before making decisions about what to commit your time and energy towards.

    Let me know if you ever need a hand with an initiative, I will be happy to support your undertakings.

      That’s awesome, John. I appreciate the encouragement.

  4. Thanks for writing this post and filling us in on your year. I also appreciate the mention and the opportunity to catch up with you during WordCamp DFW. You’re an inspiration to me! Here’s to a great 2018.

  5. I really enjoyed reading your 2017 Year In Review, Carrie! I actually found your 2016 post a few months ago while looking for examples of “Year In Review” articles written by female entrepreneurs. It’s so exciting to hear about your success. Best of luck in 2018!

  6. Good to see that you are exploring the country… hope the jeep could be repaired.

    You, Carrie, are a true “giver” traveling to WordCamps and sharing your knowledge. Humble and sincere, you improve our lives in an admirable way.

    Thank you!

  7. Excellent recap of your year! I look forward to seeing what you are up to this year! It was a pleasure hanging out with you at SEO BootCamp and I just recently added your podcast to my list.

    I wished we lived closer so we could paddle together!

    I recently wrote a personal year in review which was shockingly busy! I knew I was busy but didn’t realize how much I had packed into the year. The funny thing is that I didn’t include the business side. I work part time as Digital Marketing Manager and then I had some other projects with my consulting business. It’s crazy to think that accomplished what I did.

    So, thanks for sharing I enjoyed the post!
