Much like 2021, my plans for next year are completely up in the air thanks to COVID. I’m super proud of myself for absolutely CRUSHING my 2021 goals, but now I find myself struggling to create new goals for my platforms and my personal brand. However, there are definitely some growth areas that I hope to keep top of mind in 2022:
- Exploring more of North Carolina: The good folks of TikTok have been asking me to spotlight food spots in other cities across NC for a while now, so hopefully I can mix in some Charlotte and Triad content in 2022. As a single mother that is balling on a budget and balancing two busy schedules, it’s hard to plan trips…..but I got y’all!
- Host more events: This year I hosted two events, a Juneteenth event and a Christmas event. Both of these events went really well and I got so much of the same feedback telling me that I need to host events more often. The message was received and I plan to do more informal events where people can just pop by and say hi or hang out and socialize with me and other foodies. I would LOVE to partner with new food spots or restaurants that are rebranding to host some of these foodie pop ups…. so we are going to manifest that in 2022!
- Get (and stay) snatched: This goal is the only goal that didn’t get killed in 2021…. but in my defense, I thought there would actually be a carnival for me to get in shape for lol. Carnival or not, I want to focus on getting my body in better shape, which leads me to my next goal!
- Make healthier food choices: Now this is going to be extremely challenging for me because I am known for ordering the most mouth watering thing on the menu! It’s going to require a delicate balance because I don’t want to deprive myself of everything that I love, but I also don’t want to destroy my progress in the gym by eating junk too often. Best believe there will be cheat days lol.
Obviously, I want to continue to grow on all of my platforms to increase my partnerships and opportunities, but those 4 goals will be my main focus. I have specific KPIs that I want to hit but I’m going to keep those private until I exceed them. Yep, that right…. I’m speaking it into existence!
