2016 Recap

A new year begins tomorrow. It’s time to round up the year’s accomplishments and set some goals for 2017.

In no particular order, here’s a recap of some of finer highlights in 2016:

  • Redesigned IAFC.org
  • Sold out two As Was Written live events, in April and November
  • Wrote and performed two new short stories
  • Shifted to Mac for personal laptop
  • Paid off all credit debt
  • Moved into a new apartment
  • Bought a new car (after 17 years)
  • Migrated 80+ users to Office 365

  • Spoke at ASAE Technology Conference for the 2nd consecutive year

Surely a few aren’t being highlighted here, but these were major milestones in my personal and professional work and life.

Now, for a few main 2017 goals:
