A LOT has happened at the EOFire studio in 2015 - we've experienced some huge wins, and also some big losses. As a result, we have some great lessons learned we can carry with us into 2016.
In this episode I not only share some of our biggest lessons learned in 2016, but in the process I also walk through the 5 phases of reflection: a step-by-step guide to helping you set S.M.A.R.T. goals for 2016.

Wondering what conferences you should attend in 2016?
Step 1: Make sure you have at least 1 S.M.A.R.T. goal set for your business, because this is what will help guide you in making smart decisions around the conferences you attend (those that will help you get closer to your S.M.A.R.T. goal!)
Step 2: Review the conferences in this episode (and in the post that accompanies it) to decide which conferences are the best for YOU!
The top conferences referenced in this episode are ones we've personally attended, and so we speak from experience when we say they're great events.

I remember it so clearly: the day I decided I would leave my 9 to 5.
It was in April of 2011, and I was just told that I wasn't going to get a promotion I thought was in the bag.
What followed is what I like to refer to as the 3 phases. These 3 phases allowed me to accomplish my goal of leaving my 9 to 5, and if they helped me without me even realizing that I was going through the phases, then I know they can help you, too.

How do you know when it's time to move on or pivot?
We all face this question at one point or another on our entrepreneurial journey, most of us more than just once.
If we're lucky, the answer is clear, black or white, yes or no. But more often than not, the answer isn't that clear - unless we know how to figure out whether or not it's time to move on or pivot.
In this episode I share 3 steps you can follow in order to figure out whether or not it's time to move on or pivot.
