I started last month with doing monthly reviews. The idea is firstly to hold myself (publicly) accountable, and also to try and measure my own progress in building up my business.
Overall July was a fairly good month for me. I did not produce much in terms of deliverables, but I did gain more clarity on my plans for building a business going forward.
My work I did for a local company in Chiang Mai came to an end fairly abruptly. It is not too big of a deal for me, but this is primarly what triggered the rethink of my strategy going forward. It also means that there is nothing to keep me in Thailand any longer. I plan to see out the rest of the year in Thailand, and then start travelling again next year - for a digital nomad I have not done much “nomad-ing” for the past two years.
My main focus is to build up an income from building online courses and training materials. To that end I am focusing on two different areas:
Besides the training courses and videos, I am also taking on some smaller contracting jobs to supplement my income / savings in the meantime.
So let’s get into the review of my goals from last month. As I said at the time, it was not going to be a full month as I was still doing some travelling. Well, the travelling only lasted until the first week of the month, but then the work situation changed which made me take out some time to rethink a few things.
For next month I will be carrying on with my exisiting projects namely sending out my 2 newsletters every week as well as publishing a blog post every week.
Over and above that I will focus on getting the following done:
I also have a couple of proposals for contract work which I sent out. If any of those come through it may change my priorities.
