Professional Development: Self-Care & Continuing Education

BluPenny_selfcare_ed

I’ve been starting to plan my professional development: self-care and continuing education classes for the year. I’ve been feeling like I needed to invest in myself a little bit more. I didn’t take any classes last year and I think that may have been a mistake. It always good to stay sharp and on point.

Here are a few of the things that I’m planning on for 2014. For a little kick in the ass. I signed up for Lila Rogers Assignment Bootcamp. I always seem to function better when I have a deadline. And if that weren’t enough I signed up for 2 classes at the Writing Salon. One of my 40×40 goals is to write a novel, so I thought I should invest in some tools.

And of course there are a few conferences I’m hoping to attend (in order of calendar dates) Craftcation. I thought it was a perfect way to get my craft on. Ya know, since I wrote a mother daughter craft book. Then there’s the World Domination Summit I’ve wanted to attend ever since I first read Chris Guillebeau first book. And finally there is Squam…an epic creative escape. Who wouldn’t want to attend this creative love fest?

So that’s my professional development plan for the year. Are there any classes or conferences you are planning on attending this year?
