Welcome to 2018! Awe, look how young she is. Just a little baby.
For Christmas, we gathered at my parent's house on Florida’s west coast. The warm weather enchanted everyone to go outside and hit the beaches. We fished at my favorite spot; Boca Grande one day, and then went offshore in the Gulf of Mexico on day two.
This dolphin was trying to steal our catch and wouldn’t leave us alone.
This fortunate grouper did not make it to our dinner table that night. We caught several of these that were just shy of the legal size limit.
Another tradition we have is to sneak onto the local football field and kick some field goals. My nephew climbed up the goal post like a monkey to get this video of my daughter nailing a 20 yarder.
And lastly, a GIF that took more takes to get right than I’m willing to admit.
Business-wise, my goal is to continue with the one-minute children’s book video series. I’m going to experiment with having special guests on some of the episodes. If there’s someone in our industry that’d you’d think would be a good subject, let me know! I’ve got two amazing guests in the works right now!
Another goal is to book myself solid for the entire year. I’m implementing this new method called the 12 week year where you not only divide the year based on quarterly goals, but you do this whole Russian stacking doll approach where it all boils down to doing daily executions.
Not the cigarettes and blindfold variety, I’m talking about getting sh*t done! This book was a MAJOR eye opener. You can check it out here.
So, if you also happen to be trying to schedule your year with illustrators, hey, we can help each other!
That’s it for now. Good luck with your own goals & aspirations in 2018.
Thanks for reading.
