Webajeb Word of the Year 2009

(click on the banner to visit Tip Junkie)

Usually I would reserve a topic like New Year's resolutions for my personal blog, but I've come across something along the lines of a resolution that I think also relates to my small business.

At Tip Junkie's blog, this week's "Talk To Me Tuesday" post is about something similar to New Year's resolutions but, I think, powerfully different.

The idea is to choose a single word that represents, or sums up, what you want for yourself for 2009. I participated in the exercise on a personal level, which you can read about here, but I decided to also choose a word to use as a reminder of what I want for my small business in 2009.

Of course, some of the first words to come to mind are Craft, Create, or Imagine, but no one of those words really covers all I hope for with regard to my designs, my services, or my products. Those words float around in my head all the time anyway. Finally, I realized that what I really long to do, and what I believe will be the most productive thing I could do this coming year for the growth of my business, is:

STRETCH

So that's my Word of the Year for Webajeb Digital Photo Albums & Portfolios.

I hope you'll pop over to the Tip Junkie and join in the Word of the Year exercise. Not only will it get you thinking, and get you motivated to figure out a distinct direction that you'd like your life to take, but there's a giveaway, too!! A gorgeous custom-designed pendant inscribed with your chosen word courtesy of Tabetha of Reminisce Heirlooms. It will be given away to randomly chosen participant, so get over there!
