2009 was a great year for me. I set a few crucial goals to help my career, and I am happy I managed to fulfill them all. I was promoted at my current job, twice, which is always a good thing :)
I developed myself professionally, and literally met hundreds of people through my social media journey, some of which became very good friends and mentors. I also got certified as an Inbound Marketing Professional by Hubspot, after completing their Inbound Marketing University Program.
Irm and I finally bought our first new car, which really serves us well in the little town we currently live in (self note: counting the days until we return to Cambridge, MA).
I created my own Website, and started blogging my thoughts and opinions about what I see and read surfing the Inbound Marketing sphere. I mostly enjoyed reading the comments, and interacting with readers from all over the world. Thank you!
Overall, I think 2009 was a great year for me. 2010, however, is an entire different story.
These are my resolutions for 2010:
My short term resolution is to complete my GMAT test, and get a high score so I can apply to MIT. This brings me to my second resolution, MIT. This is my one decade long goal, which is why I focus so much on my GMAT score. I plan to apply to the Sloan School, and complete my MBA. High goal to reach, but I am always about facing challenges in life.
On the professional side, I plan to take my Social Media Marketing skills into the next level, and attend at least 30 Webinars, covering a vast range of marketing topics.
At my workplace, I plan to create a better Social Media platform, which I already started, and watch it grow and make our community happier.
On a personal side, I am hoping I can support Irm better with finishing her book. This has been a long and interesting journey for her, and I am glad I could be a part of it by supporting her.
I look forward to fulfilling all these resolutions in 2010. I think it is going to be a great year.
Happy New Year everyone!
