So, before I give you my top 5 posts from 2012, I’ll share with you 3 things I want to do to improve my business for 2013.
Overall, I’m happy that the content I published this year seems to have struck a balance of being engaging, educational and entertaining.
I’m less happy with meeting my business goals for the year so here’s some strategies that I hope will improve that.
I’ve always worked in collaborative fields; theatre, restaurants, and hotels. As a self employed consultant, I miss the support and challenge of co-creators so I want to seek out more collaborations next year.
Being a “generalist” is a blessing and a curse, depending on which end of the telescope I’m looking through.My curiosity often gets the better of me and I sometimes get lost in the pixels. I will focus on only those things that impact directly on my business.
Although I produced a lot of content last year (on this blog as well as on SteamFeed.com, on Google+), I haven’t created nearly enough “product” i.e. e-books, videos and webinars.

Ray, thanks for the SteamFeed plug. :) We need to create more products in 2013 as well, the plan is to do SteamFeed Webinars so we'll have to get you involved in that. :) I have a feeling it's going to be a great year for the lot of us.
Great post Ray! Short powerful list, power to you for taking your work to the next level in 2013. Now that we've all survived the end of the world, there's be nothing but a bright future for all of us.
