There are so many “BEST” moments in 2016 that I am THANKFUL for! First and foremost at this time last year I was re-branding from Jael Custom Designs to JenOni, Inc. It has been nothing but a positive experience since I took that HUGE step that I was afraid to take for years. Lesson: The fears we donâ€™t face become our limits. I think about if I had re-branded sooner how things may have been but, you know what I canâ€™t dwell on the past. I am happy that I was brave enough with some support to finally JUST DO IT!
Once I was out of my comfort zone so many amazing things started to happen. I received positive feedback about my blogs new layout and name change. My blog turned SEVEN this year! I started to work with more PR companies and secured direct blog and social media campaigns with brands. I was able to secure more brand ambassador opportunities and got invited to participate in others. I had a few hosted travel opportunities this year that I am still in shock about. It is truly humbling and I am in aweâ€¦
I believe I have a aha moment in the fourth quarter of each year. Last year it was re-branding and streamlining my marketing services that I offer. I also incorporated my blog this year and opened a business bank account so I could separate my blog and business income from my personal income. I wanted an additional method of taking payments. I prefer receiving ACH direct deposits in lieu of PayPal payments. This year itâ€™s all about Personalitees-Plus, my new online statement tees boutique!
Personalitees-Plus was recently launched in mid-December and the feedback has been nothing but, positive! I canâ€™t wait to see what 2017 has in store for us! Please visit the website and follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter! This is my first REAL â€œStartupâ€ business and itâ€™s exciting. This year I have been to San Francisco for Lenovo Tech World, Los Angeles for BlogHer Blog Conference, Charlotte, NC to Camp Wilderness and Carowinds Theme Park and Lake Buena Vista, FL for the Disney Holidays Media event. There are so many more awesome moments but, these come to mind first!
Iâ€™ve seen so much beauty in 2016! I love to be able to sight see when I am visiting a place Iâ€™ve never been. It was my second trip to San Francisco this past June but, I was able to do so much more and see locations I had missed my first trip. I think the highlight of my recent trip outside of Lenovo Tech World was Union Square and the Painted Ladies. I was able to visit Los Angeles in August for BlogHer and it was amazing! Iâ€™m excited to report I FINALLY left LAX. It seemed like I always had a flight layover in Los Angeles but, had never left the airport. Lol!
This past August we had a fun family camping trip at Camp Wilderness Carowinds and it was definitely a memorable experience. I canâ€™t wait to do it again! The convenience of cabin camping right next to the Carowinds theme park with top notch amenities was a huge plus! In November I headed to Walt Disney World to Unwrap the Magic at the Disney Holidays Media Event. I was able to visit Magic Kingdom, Disney Springs and Hollywood Studios. It was a memorable holiday event that I wonâ€™t forget!
