Yep! I usually come up with 3 big goals for each year and then do a roadmap for each one on how I’ll complete them. First one was finally getting through the Feverbee videos. I’ve been resistant because I thought I wouldn’t learn anything really new, but it’s been an excellent refresher. It’s also reminded me why I got into community management and put the fire back into my belly. I’m currently looking for conferences/events that are more data analysis focused and some training in SEO. I figure these won’t necessarily be community focused so I’m expanding my search - maybe Adobe has some training that could be useful.
My second big goal is getting back to my personal website and updating the design and turning it into a collaborative community. This will require brushing up on my coding skills and learning more UX. I’m going to try to use as many free online resources for this stuff, although there are a few really good Meetup groups in the Philadelphia area that offer classes.
Finally, I want to get my law license reinstated. I let it lapse since I no longer practice. I have to pay a fortune to get it reinstated and take a ton of continuing education classes for the years I’ve been inactive, but I want to see how I can start using it in community management, etc.
