During August my business turned four years old and I wanted to mark this occasion with a quick blog post to you all. I am so grateful for what I have achieved in this short period and cannot wait to see what the future holds.
When I founded Goal Financial Services four years ago I did do so with passion and determination but even I will admit that I could never have predicted the overwhelming response that was received.
This year for me has been the best of my career to date. Starting a business is never easy and it’s been tough at times however it’s been so worth every moment and the highs outweigh the lows multiple times.
My highlights were hard to narrow down but I settled on:
Feedback: The overwhelmingly positive reaction we have received from our clients over the past 4 years has been great with many referring their family and friends to us for advice.
Acknowledgement: For the past 3 years we have have been nominated for and selected as a finalist in the local business awards. This kind of acknowledgement make us proud that our hard work and efforts are being noticed.
Personal Achievement: This year saw me turn 40 which I celebrated by taking on an Ironman Triathlon. Many months of disciplined training around work and family commitments meant I was able to finish the 3.8km swim, 180km bike ride and 42.2km run in a time of 13 hours which far exceeded my own expectations.
The next year will be huge for us and we are so very grateful for all your support! A massive thank you to all those who have helped to make Goal Financial Services what it is today and happy birthday to us!!
