19: 2022 Year-in-Review Episode (aka Why a business bank balance of $53415 on Dec 31 may NOT indicate good profit!)

It’s a new year, and you know what that means: it’s time for a year-end review. Each year, I sit down and do my best to be transparent with you about how my business did. From the outside, it might seem like my business is huge and thriving – and it is doing well, but I learned some hard lessons too. 

And even though I’m ending the year with over $50k in my business accounts, my profit margins for 2022 have been really slim. Instead of being a year of major financial growth, 2022 ended up being a reorganization year. I spent some money in places that I probably shouldn’t have, but I also made some investments that are going to set my businesses up for future success. 

So in today’s episode, I’m breaking down how I reorganized my businesses, how and why I spent some much money in the businesses this year, and my big goals for next year. Even if some of my numbers feel a little embarrassing, sitting down to reflect on the year helped me to appreciate the small and big wins and get clarity on my plans for next year, and I encourage you to take time to do the same.

We’ll discuss:

  • Why I officially separated my two businesses and how that’s clarified my business finances
  • The wins from last year for both TGO and Outdoor Kids OT
  • How my team has grown and how I’m working on company culture this year
  • I finally finished my dissertation! (And I’m writing a book)
  • How I’m learning to celebrate all moments, big and small
  • How last year was about reorganizing and creating new products, and why this year is about maintaining stability
  • My business revenue and profits from 2022, and financial lessons I’ve learned about managing and analyzing your numbers
  • My goals for 2023, and how I’m continuing to build on and structure my businesses to be more streamlined
