My name is Nicola and I hail from Arnett Gardens in West Kingston, Jamaica. I started this site back in August (2012), at which time it was just a little blog with an additional page, and the aim was simply to track my progress over the course of a year. In fact, it was a challenge to myself to grow as a person, a professional and an author, hence the title “On Becoming A Whole Person…”. The first post titled My Journey Begins gives a clear enough idea of my reasons and my aims, so you can read that if you need a better understanding of where I’m coming from.
Fast forward to today (December 9th, 2012) and, although I ditched my weight loss efforts ages ago, I really have improved or expanded in many areas. I’m currently bouncing back from a failed business attempt (see my new freelance site); I’m doing multiple little things to eat better (although I’m still kind of a sucker for sugar ); I’ve finally started publishing things (you can view my Smashwords page or hop over to the My eBooks tab); I’m mastering Photoshop; I’m improving on my own marketing strategy which is a step towards one of the five goals (the first post explains this); and best of all, I’m becoming more spiritually centered hence better able to handle most days!
These aside, I’m tackling other ventures such as publishing articles via Triond; creating eBook covers, creating resources for fellow freelancers; and making my own Squidoo lenses. There’s no telling where all of this will lead to, but I will do my absolute best to chronicle everything via my blog. I expect to learn a lot in the coming months and really hope you will stick around to learn along with me.
