Next week will mark the third anniversary of starting Confidence Finance full time.
Packing up & quitting a job that I’d spent years earning was probably the scariest thing I’d ever done. Now that we’re at the end of the year and at another milestone, it’s a time of year where I naturally find myself reflecting on the achievements we’ve made over the past three years.
Most of you probably know that I love what I do. Running a business is scalable, fun & creative. I make decisions, invest, hire & educate, all while doing something that i really enjoy in providing advice about how property investing & credit works. In saying that, there’s a lot of not so fun things involved in running a business (admin being the main one!).
While we have lots of exciting things to reveal in the coming months, the fast approaching new year marks a great time to reflect on the incredible achievements of the past year.
What I’ll remember from 2017:
I think I’ll remember this year as one where we laid out a clear vision for what we want to become. My old mentor once said to me you can only become what you can see for yourself.
There was a time last year where it was just long hours processing loans. I was getting bogged down in doing the day to day without thinking about what I originally wanted to do. We probably didn’t aim high enough & didn’t spend enough time educating Australian’s about how credit works.
Today, were in the middle of a plan to build Confidence Finance into one of the most successful brokerages in the country. This will take time of course. But it will be built on the same principles of education, knowledge and service that have taken us to where we are today. We’ll need to continue to embrace technology and ‘productivity’ hacks to make it all possible, but we’re all ready to go here & looking forward to our biggest year yet in 2018!
To all of our clients, friends, family – thank you very much for supporting our journey and the work we do. I couldn’t thank you enough. I’ve truly been humbled by the response of the people I’ve met and worked with over the last few years. It’s been a pleasure working for you.
Merry Xmas & a Happy New Year
