I know that I am late with posting my resolution and I can explain! I finished writing this blog post on January 5th and my goal was to alternate between blog and Youtube videos. However, I had a lot of issues with editing. Since this blog post goes with a Youtube video I decided to push this blog back which now I realized I shouldn’t have. I want to finally share my goals with you so here is my 2024 New Years Resolution & Digital Vision Board.

P.S. Some of theses goal has already happened or are so close to happening

The new year is here and this year I’m doing things differently. The past few years have been rough for me, two years ago I couldn’t think about goals. It was so painful, especially since I was dealing with grief. Last year I had goals but I had no plans on how I was supposed to execute them but now I have more goals and I’m figuring out how I can get them done.

Before we get started if you want to look at my resolution from last year click here. I’m going to be honest a lot of these goals might look the same but this time I will have a plan on how I will achieve them so that it can happen this year. Click here to check out last year’s resolution. This year I’m going to break it down differently too. I had my blog goal separated from other creative stuff but I’m going to put everything that falls under Defining My Essence together. And that is where we are going to start.

My Resolutions

Defining My Essence Goals

This is probably going to be my biggest list out of all of the things that I’m doing. The reason why I’m going to separate it this year is that these goals are going to go hand in hand with each other. 

Be consistent with long form content- I have trouble with being consistent with blog post and since I’m adding YouTube in the mix I want to be consistent but I don’t want to overwhelm myself. So I decided to alternate between posting for the blog and posting on YouTube every other week.

  • Change up mental health check- I have been doing my mental health checks for a while and I feel a bit stagnant with it. I did a poll on my Instagram and the results was that I continue to do the mental health checks weekly but one week is pictures and the next week is videos.
  • Schedule content- This applies to a lot of platforms but I need to make it easier for me and schedule out my posts. The top platform I need to do this with is Pinterest. I need to schedule out my content for the month like I used to do with Twitter. Instagram is different because their scheduling is so faulty. When you schedule it either posts immediately or when it’s time to schedule it won’t post. So what’s the point?
  • Pitch to brand monthly- I’m currently in the process of fixing my media kit so I can start pitching again but I used to overwhelm myself with trying to find brands and content. The flip side to that is that I haven’t pitched myself since the summer and that can’t happen either. I think once a month is a realistic goal.
  • Go to influencer events- This is one of the goal I had from last year but didn’t have the opportunity to go. Honestly there aren’t that many influencers in my area so it’s hard. I realized that I have to create the events that I want to have or that I might have to pay to attend them. It’s okay for now and I want to say that this goal is already happening because I paid a deposit to attend an event in February and I got invited to a fashion show as an influencer in April.
  • Be more strategic with social media- Past few years I have been making content with no goals behind it. I would batch shoot content to work around my grief and I don’t want to do that anymore. Batch shooting is still essential but I want to have a plan of how I want to shoot the content and the story I want to tell.
  • Stop reposting the same content on all platforms- I think it’s important to repurpose content on all platforms and I still will be doing it to an extent. What I mean is that I will still be posting the reel I post on Instagram to go on TikTok, Pinterest and YouTube Shorts. However I want to make videos to only go on TikTok, share blog posts and other stuff on Pinterest and with YouTube they will get the longer videos. 
  • Be more organized- Again I was just making the content with no plans but I want to be more organized in general. I’ve already started this by writing my to-do list on my whiteboard the night before. Writing a list of things I need to do for the blog, Pinterest and other stuff. Then realistically adding them to my to-do list based on my work schedule. I’m not going to be too hard on myself if it doesn’t get fully done that day because before it wouldn’t get done at all because I was so overwhelmed.
  • Do more collaborations – This applies to a lot of things. I need to collaborate more with big brands, small businesses in SWFL and with other influencers. I realized that the only way that I can grow in numbers  but also as a person is by collaborating with others. I can’t do this alone and I shouldn’t have to
  • Start doing giveaways – I’ve been avoiding giveaways for a while but this year I want to start. It will only be quarterly because I still want to have an engaged audience plus I want the giveaways to be meaningful. I’m actually in the process of doing a huge giveaway that will help out aspiring influencers and small businesses in SWFL. 
*Update- I have accomplish or in the process of alot of these goals. I went to an influencer event, did a giveaway, change up my mental health checks and people are really loving it. 

Money Goals

Last year was a struggle for me financially. However I wasn’t  mentally in the place to do anything about it. I don’t want to have the same struggle as last year. So here are the things I’m going to do

  • Pick up as many sessions as possible – I think I mentioned how my remote job is inconsistent however I now have a new position at my job that will help out with that. I want to pick up as many sessions as I possibly can to make sure that I’m financially stable. 
  • Save up for summer – I mentioned how inconsistent my job is but it gets worse over the summer. With my new job opportunity I won’t be in the same position though. So this summer I still want to work but way less. I want to save up so that I can live my best life during the summer. I want to go out, go to the beach and just have fun.
  • Ask for more paid deals/negotiate – I struggle so much with this and I need to get better. I think because I’m a smaller creator I have imposter syndrome and feel like a brand won’t take me seriously with asking for payment but I should at least try. I’ve gotten a few paid opportunities and I think this is the year of more.

Health Goals

With health I don’t have intense goals. I just want to maintain a healthy lifestyle.


  • Get a check up – I need to go to the doctor this year. I have an autoimmune disease and I haven’t had my thyroid checked in a while for many reasons. It doesn’t really matter why now I just have to do it. I think because I haven’t been in a while I’m scared that things would get worse but I’ll never know if I don’t go


  • Morning walks & yoga- I’ve been doing this for a while and this helps me with my mental health but I want to be more consistent. Sometimes on days it’s too cold I don’t end up walking. I want to make sure I’m still moving my body so I want to get back into yoga


  • Eat Better – I didn’t really grow up eating fast food but in the past year I noticed I was going to McDonald’s and Burger King more often than usual. I stopped over the summer mainly because money is tight over the summer. My goal this year is that I’m not eating out unless I’m going out to eat with friends or having business coffee meetings. There  is food at home that I can make especially since I’ve been getting stuff from Trader Joe’s.


Travel Goals

This is the year for me to start traveling. It’s something I always wanted to do but I didn’t have the money for it. Plus the pandemic wasn’t the time to travel.


  • Figure Out Where I Want To Go –  so I want to travel but I don’t have any places I have in mind where I would like to go so I need to make a list. Plus I need to figure out what I would like to do and see when I go.


  • Get My Passport – I was supposed to get this done last year but I didn’t have the money for it. I already filled out the application and saved it so I just need to book the appointment and pay for it. I want to get it done before the summer. 


  • Go on road trips with friends – I want to connect with my friends more and traveling doesn’t have to be far. I just want to go places that are still close by and make it an opportunity to connect with people.


* Update I already have been on a road trip. I went to Universal with some friends and it was fun. Planning a trip to New York for the end of summer

Social Life Goals

I’m trying to be more social but honestly it’s been hard with not having my car right now. I’m just hoping that i get it back so I can do more


  • Make new connections – I want to make new friends in every category in my life. Blogger/influencer friends, mental health friends and I want to reconnect with old friends too. For example one of my suitemates from college lives in Fort Myers and we only met up once. We definitely need to meet up more.


  • Coffee/matcha Meetings – I want to have more business meetings with other influencers and small businesses in SWFL. I think this will also give me the opportunity to try out new coffee places
