2017 is here and it's always exciting to bring in a new year and see some changes. At CBNation, we're not big into resolutions–we prefer to recalibrate. However, we don't ignore or discount the excitement that comes with the beginning of any new year.
There's new businesses being started, new goals to be demolished and new pivots that will be made. It's an exciting time to be an entrepreneur and business owner and we're happy to do our part to help support you and to bring your story to life.
Even though we didn't wait until the new year, here's a few things you will see that are 2017 worthy:
- New websites: We are have 2 new websites in our family–WP4CEOs and Healthy CEO. We will also be merging some of our existing platforms back to our CBNation family like my business blog and CEO Chat. These two sites are dedicated to different types of entrepreneurs and business owners. For WP4CEOs, the site is dedicated to those entrepreneurs and business owners that want to learn and know about WordPress–it is the way that most websites are designed and the design of choice for Blue 16 Media. For Healthy CEO, the site will focus on entrepreneurs in the health, sports, fitness and wellness industries. Think yoga instructors, massage therapist, personal trainers, sports camp founders–these are the “Healthy CEOs.”
- Continuing the merging of Blue 16 Media & CBNation. We are continuing to merge these two brands together. It started early last year and we are still focusing on bring these two brands together.
- More me 🙂. The blog has always been a passion of mine and something near and dear to my heart. I really plan to use the blog as an opportunity to connect with as many of you as possible. It's not about me in the sense that you will hear what my thoughts are and I will talk about ME, ME, ME. Instead, I just want to tell your story, meet you and provide relevant content for you. I'm just taking more of a hands on approach to generating and organizing content. It was more a platform that Ashley and Simaan did a tremendous job to help build and grow. Now, a slight change will be that you'll see more of me allowing the rest of the team to focus more on their projects and responsibilities. As always, I'm pretty accessible. The best is probably via Twitter (@progreshion) but also don't hesitate to connect with me to schedule a quick Coffee Chat call. So expect to see and hear more from me and probably our mascot too–Star.
I will leave with this quote by Marianne Williamson to remind you and myself of what we are here for:
Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people will not feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone and as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
Here's to 2017 being your best year yet and ours too!
