Monthly Check-In: Goodbye January, Hello February: Each month, I share three things I accomplished in the previous month and preview three things I’m excited about for the upcoming month. Here’s my latest monthly check-in.
- Get started on my next round of freelance articles/guest posts. January was an awesome month for freelance writing and I have some posts due in the next few week that I’m really excited to write.
- Do an awesome job being interviewed by my alma mater for a feature in the School of Media and Communication’s alumni publication! I was so honored to be selected and I can’t wait to be interviewed by a current PR student to share my story.
- Run at least two times this week. Last week, due to snow, I did yoga twice and ran once. If I’m going to start training for Broad Street soon, I need to up my mileage!
