Happy New Year! We made it to 2024 and I am so excited to kick off a new year with you and see what 2024 holds for us! I always love to kick off the year with some new goals, selecting a word of the year, and a fresh start and I thought it would be perfect to share that with you!

I think we all like to go into a new year with a fresh perspective and ideas of things we’d like to accomplish, I know I do at least! So to kick off the year, I thought it would be fun to share some goals I have for you in your counseling programs and what my word of the year is with you. 

Do you have a word of the year for 2024? Maybe some new personal or professional goals? I would love to hear what they are! Send me a DM on Instagram @BrightFuturesCounseling. I can’t wait to hear what you have planned for 2024!

Some topics covered in this episode are:

  • What I challenge you to do for each tier in 2024

  • An encouragement to set career-driven goals for the upcoming year

  • Why my word of the year is “connection”

  • Three questions I frequently get asked - Hear about how I started working in Costa Rica, scheduling tips, and data tracking tools!
