    Now that 2016 is over I have been thinking about what I have accomplished last year and what I consider my biggest accomplishment.

    As I thought about it I feel that my biggest accomplishment is that I have diversified my websites to many different niches. Prior to 2016 I was only really in two niches and now I am in about a dozen.

    This has help because when one particular niche is going slow another will be doing better so this helps my traffic to be more consistent as a whole.


    What do you consider to be your biggest accomplishment of 2016?

    I can't really say that I have had a big accomplishment in my eyes, it's more along the lines of several smaller ones. My 2016 was more along the lines of riding along an even pace of things and setting some things up for future big accomplishments.

    In 2016 I had decided that I need to narrow down my scope of things that I am doing as I was spreading myself too thin between my websites, marketing and other online activities. I'm now trimming down things with big future plans that will hopefully come to be one day soon.

    My biggest accomplishment last year was that I got started doing blogging and internet marketing and made my first commission from a sale. It was a nice feeling and I hope to continue and have more success.

    I tend to do that myself also at times. I have been trying to find ways to be more efficient with my time so that I can get more work and other things done in the same amount of time.

    Congratulations Keral, that first commission can help us to find motivation. I remember that feeling myself and it was a good one.

    My biggest accomplishment was to start to do internet marketing and get my first sales. I was so excited when I made my first sale and it helped to get me more motivated to work harder. Now for 2017 I want to make more money so I can do it as my regular job.

    Converting my home page from a custom solution to wordpress was a big one.

    My biggest accomplishment for last year was deciding to start doing internet marketing and starting my own blog in a niche that I really love.

    I wasn't sure how it would work out but given the amount of time I have to put into it everything has worked out really well. :)

    That's great to hear Jenny, I am happy that things are working out well for you. :)

    Going into a niche that you love can help make things easier as well.

    My biggest accomplishment is that my family and I moved out of our smaller home and into a much bigger and nicer home. We had been saving and shopping for a new home for years and finally the right one became available at a great price.

    I also got started in internet marketing as a second source of income for myself and I am happy with how it has been going so far.

    That's great Maria, I am happy for you and your family. Keep up with your internet marketing and maybe one day you can make enough money to move to an even bigger home. :D

    I have worked in that niche my whole adult life almost so it was a logical choice for me and it has worked out nicely. :D

    I am happy with the size of our new home but I wouldn't mind moving somewhere that had more sunny and dry weather. :D

    Well I wouldn't mind living somewhere that it wasn't so hot and dry, maybe we can switch locations because I have had too much of that here. :Dans2:

    My biggest accomplishment last year was selling my home for more money that I was hoping for and finally being able to move back to Spain with most of my family members. It has been quite a change and is more relaxed way of living which I am very happy about.

    Good for you Marcos, it's always nice to sell something for more than you hope for or expect. I don't usually seem to be that lucky myself though.

    Congratulations on your sell. :)

    Thank you for that. What happened was I was told by my broker to ask much higher because I should expect low offers and then not long passed and I got an offer for almost the higher price I was asking. It surprised me but it was nice.

    Great strategy since it worked for you. It's common for people to set their asking price higher because they know that everyone wants something for less than the asking price.

    It doesn't always mean that you are going to get more than you want but it is great that it worked well for you.

    I have done the same thing it the past when selling homes but never got lucky like this time. It will probably not happen again if that same point comes but at least it happened once.

    My biggest accomplishment was getting out of a dead-end job and finding a great new employer. My new job has a lot of traveling involved so I like that since I have never done much traveling before.

    This job allows me to make more money if I work hard and that is a great change from my previous one so I am real happy about that because I like to work.

    I am hoping for a great 2017 and so far it's looking like that for most things. :Dancing2:

    That is great to hear and I know how that is because I was in a similar position not long ago. I sold my home and moved to Spain to be with family and I am doing different work that I am much happier now. Must be nice for us people to get out of those situations.
