2015 for me: pretty stable overall…

🗓Yearly

This time it took me a while to do some thinking and reviewing. We’re 7 days in 2016 and I’m still processing all the lessons I’ve learned from 2015. Overall it’s been a pretty stable year for me, but some things didn’t go as planned or were more challenging that I anticipated. Here goes:

2015 for me: pretty stable overall…

My 2015 in a nutshell would be like this:

I’m still a fit triathlete, but didn’t reach my fitness goals, although had lots of fun riding my bike, running and swimming. I gained a few pounds of weight which I need to lose this month to prepare properly for what’s to come in 2016. In business I doubled my team count while maintaining the business revenue at the same level as last year. This means in 2016 I need to do less hiring and more marketing, to make up for all of it.

This is the gist of it. If you want to know more, keep reading:

2016 for me: family, fitness on personal side… No Office and Nozbe on business side.

That’s what 2016 is going to be like for me:

Personal side: I’m going to focus on spending even more quality time with my family while staying fit and being more consistent with my training. Business side: I’m going to focus on expanding Nozbe’s horizons with amazing marketing and great product enhancements (Nozbe 3.0 coming soon!) while spreading my “no office” message to everyone who is considering working remotely or building a productive remotely-working team

Question: How was your 2015? What are your plans for 2016?
