Hello, and welcome back to all of my marvelous readers. Since it is the month of December, it is time for me to reflect on the growth of this blog, and the direction I would like this blog to go in. So, today’s post will have some updates, and a survey that is completely anonymous but will help me to steer my goals and marketing for 2022. This one is just a simple fill-in with your own words type of answer. I will be doing these surveys frequently, at least through the end of January. I already have a good idea of what I am thinking but feedback helps.
If you would please click here and take my survey. It is free and I won’t spam you. It is a Mailchimp survey and it may sign you up for my newsletter, but I am moving away from Mailchimp’s newsletter option. I really don’t care for it and I don’t get the results I want. I think getting more followers here that receive each new post is way more effective. Be sure to sign up to follow this blog and never miss anything I say, lol.
So, as I spend some time reflecting on 2021 I didn’t get my coaching business as ramped up as I would have liked to. A lot of this has to do with marketing, and personal changes in my life that sucked up a lot of time and stress to deal with. I did get some good leads with probable customers, but that is not paying customers. Of course, I would like to have at least one paying customer, lol. I think my prices are very reasonable, and I am flexible, so there are other issues at play. Traditional ways of marketing oneself are not my cup of tea, and I am not a salesman at heart. However, I do think there are some things I can do to help myself out.
Remember, right now I am a Health Coach, with a background in nursing. I work as an Independent Contractor at this time, with me being my only employee.
I need to focus more on creating good coaching plans and advertising those, instead of worrying about just blog content with plans immersed in them. I truly love to teach and if you read here often you know I have homeschooled both of my children to graduation, well the last one is almost done. I need to focus on that more, helping others learn about Health and Wellness and improving it. While I do not have the capability to do big long videos, nor am I sure I want to, I am going to do some voice-over videos for my Kidney Coach slides. AKF gave me the OK to add Kidney Coach items to this blog to reach more people, especially with Covid and social distancing. So be sure and watch for those. Outside of the Kidney Coach voice-overs, I may try to do some short cooking, meal prep, budgeting, goal setting, etc type voice-over videos. Every month I will share a Health Challenge idea. For December it is to do weight lifting 3 days a week. For January, I think I am going to focus on a no-spend budget challenge month. I will announce it soon.
I have already changed the color theme and my logo.

I have decided, at this time I do not want to do affiliate marketing, but if businesses reach out to me to request a review I will consider each request. I do not care to promote items, companies, businesses, products, etc without even trying them myself first. That just makes no sense to me.
