My 2 year journey at Lightfoot

My journey at Lightfoot all started because of my struggles with a previous company. I had been given a 3-month trial and during this trial, my work was struggling. The company really liked me as a person and wanted to see me succeed there. They extended my trial by another 3 months and by the end of it, I was still struggling to keep up. I then had to start looking for a position elsewhere, and that's where I found Lightfoot.

A year review 2018

After reading Tim Ferriss' year review, I decided to do something similar. I couldn't go through my calendar as I never use one for events (maybe I should start next year).

Looking to 2019 and my personal goals

2018 has been massive for my wife and I. I helped her start her business Brooks Pet Sitters, and although it's been tough, she's loved every second. Our goal was to have 20 clients this year, and we now have 45. Some have been incredibly supportive, while others not so much. We learnt how to pick our clients and separate the good from the bad.

Favourite books of 2018

I'm not sure about the number of books I read this year, but I read a good amount. They're mainly self-help books and a few on marketing, so if you're looking for something on web dev or graphic design, then I'm afraid you're out of luck.
