Last year was such a rollercoaster. If you'd have told me in January 2018 that by December I would have quit my job AND launched a profitable business I would have laughed you outta town.
But that's exactly what happened.
I was so caught up in the momentum of that journey that by December I was B U R N E D O U T. Big time.
So, over Christmas I decided to close my laptop and turn off my emails for 3 weeks. About 2 weeks into that, I finally had the headspace to plan for the year ahead. In just a few days of workshopping, I had finalised growth targets and marketing plans to help me take Scribly.io to the next level.
Right now I'm caughted up in a new momentum of excitement about putting that plan in to action.
2019 - let's do this!
In setting up the processes for Scribly, I've been really conscious not to get stuck in tool overload. I've tried to keep everything as simple and streamlined as possible. Trello has been a total lifesaver in providing all the production infrastructure I need, both for writers and and clients. Best of all - it's free. I was tempted to throw myself into more complex routes, but learning how to scale back to the simplest solution possible has been a really enlightening process.
I decided to start small with Scribly. I wanted to launch with a handful of beta clients to give me time to streamline the process. It's been a great decision, as I've been able to settle into the stride of the launch without feeling too daunted or overwhelmed. No catastrophes so far. My natural instinct was to go really hard right from the get go, but I'm really glad I trusted my instinct on this one and took it more slowly.
Yikes. Big day. My little baby, scribly.io, is now live.
I was finding myself getting stuck in analysis paralysis, so I decided to just go for it, even though there were still some kinks.
Happily, so far the response has been GREAT!
