Hi everyone, it may seem a bit early for a review of 2012 but I have a big event starting on Dec 23rd so I thought it would be good time to do both.
Firstly, I am ending the year and beginning 2013 by co-hosting a major giveaway event with the able help of Keith Purkiss. Giveaway events are excellent not only for members but also contributors as there are many first class products available for FREE or on special offer at amazingly low prices.
Here is the link so that you can claim your own free gifts.
Personal Highlights of the year for me have been spending time and travelling with my lovely partner Julia. We have been to Stratford which saw monsoon weather of biblical proportions, The English Lake District visiting Grasmere and the home of Lakeland poet William Wordsworth.
Bamburgh castle which I have always wanted to visit, and the Capital of Scotland Edinburgh to watch the show Midnight Tango. Plus a brilliant holiday in the sunshine of Majorca.
I had many more products planned this year that I never got around to finishing. Working my full time job has proved draining both mentally and physically leaving little time in the evening for working on my own business ideas or for R&R. I need to find a better balance here.
I had intended to produce Plugin Auction Profits 2 which is in completed draft planning, but this has now been penned in for 2013 as well as my print version or 12 Roads to Success via Create Space.
I had intended to offer custom WordPress websites for local businesses but just run out of time to even start this, maybe I was a bit too ambitious for one year?
So What Is In Store For 2013? Lots!
On a personal basis plenty of fun and travel!
On a business basis…
Continue to build my mailing list, obviously this will be ongoing.
Get my Kindle Product up for sale, I still need to finish the sales page and affiliate materials, order graphics etc.
Complete the upsell for the Kindle product about building an Information Business off Amazon.
Make more use of social media in my business and to blog and visit other blogs more often.
I have a number of other products and ideas in the planning stage which will see the light of dawn in 2013.
So what have you planned for 2013? Please leave a comment.
It’s good to share! Please help me spread the word by sharing on Facebook, Twitter and other social media.
Nice review. Getting a number of products out there is quite an achievement when you think of how many others get distracted, overwhelmed and struck by shiny object syndrome. It’s also good to see you have even more ideas for improvements and more products.
I’m still putting together a product which has been placed on the back burner for most of this year while I’ve pursued list building. Never mind, I’m hopeful that it will be completed next year. The important thing is to keep forging ahead.
Good luck with your Giveaway Event and all the best for 2013,
Robert Corrigan says
suppose I didn’t do too badly, but stil a disappointment considering what I had planned for the year.
Will have to take a more deliberate approach in 2013
Mandy Allen @ Learn To Blog says
Sometimes we set ourselves too many goals, don’t we, Rob. Great that you achieved so much though and a good opportunity at this time of the year to recap, take stock and see where we’re heading. I am so looking forward to the launch of your Kindle tutoring course.
Enjoy the journey.

Hi mandy and thanks for dropping by, I probably did better than I thought! The Kindle stuff is finished just working on the upsells.
George Nieves says
You are one of the marketers I respect in this IM world! You are truly an example for us all.
Your drive & perseverance is truly remarkable. I’m proud of your accomplishments.
It’s okay to take stock of yourself & realize that their may have been some things that you didn’t get done from your goals list.
However, take pride in your accomplishments my friend.
You’re way ahead of many in this online gig of ours.
Well done my friend! All the best in 2013!
Robert Corrigan says
thanks for dropping by, and thank you for the very kind words, I suppose I shouldn’t beat myself up so much, I did quite a bit last year, my main problem is I get 90% of things done in 10% of the time and the other 10% take 90% of the time.
Determined to get anything I’m working on finished very quickly as I have a lot of products I want to launch this year.
