Final Words for 2021
This is the last newsletter before the New Year. 2021 went by in a flash and I can't believe I have already been writing this newsletter for 10 WEEK! I'm going to keep this one a little shorter, spend time with your family, and set your goals for 2022.
Hey, y'all like a lot of you I am a freelancer and have been doing freelance design work on and off for about 3 years now. I feel like I have a pretty good sense of handling taxes. The most important thing is staying organized and getting that tax bill down so you have more money for coffee. For starters make sure to go back and track down any expenses you are able to write off. I highly recommend checking out Keeper for a list of write-offs as well as filing with the turbo tax self-employment plan. For expense tracking, I just kick it old school and keep track in google sheets.
RIP DJ Screw
Been bumping a lot of DJ Screw again lately and got inspired to make a poster. Here is a little sneak peek before I drop it on Instagram this week. If you arent familiar with DJ Screw or the Chopped and Screwed style I definitely recommend checking it out. The music puts me in a very specific flow state that's kinda slowed down but still interesting enough to keep my brain moving.
Set Your Goals
My buddy Jack asked me recently what my goals were for 2022 so it got me thinking. I am also so lazy with writing down my goals but this year I really want to manifest things. I am so grateful for everything that I have done in 2021, so it makes me super excited for what's to come. For now, some of my goals for 2022 are.
Passive Income to be enough for at least 30% of my monthly budget
Grow to 10,000 subscribers on YouTube
Pay off my Student Loans
Sell 250 Prints
Work with more big name clients
Read at least 1 book a month
Nothing too crazy, but def want to hold myself somewhat accountable. What are some of your goals for 2022??
Stuff I currently like and stuff I'm looking forward to!
