Our 2015 Resolutions

Happy 2015!
Our New Year’s Resolutions

Happy New Year from the Empowered Pros! Wow, where did 2014 go? One minute it was January and the next it was time to celebrate the New Year.

We at Empowered Pros hope 2014 was a banner year for you and 2015 will see all of you achieve whatever makes you happy, healthy, and wise…oh and wealthy wouldn’t hurt either.

Since it’s the first day of 2015 I thought I’d spend some time looking ahead and make some resolutions and share them with our readers. I’m sure most of you have thought about making resolutions and hopefully you’ll share yours with us as well.

Health Resolution

Ilene and I are blessed to have good health. Not only are we pretty healthy, especially given we aren’t a couple of spring chickens, as my grandmother used to say, but our immediate family is in good health.

I have to confess, however, to putting on a couple of pounds last year and am working on dropping some extra baggage. My immediate goal for 2015 is to be back to my 40” waist by the end of March and down to 33” inches by the end of the year. I set that goal because I’ve read somewhere that your waist should be half your height…you can do the math. Anyway, I’ll keep you posted on how I’m doing in our newsletter.


Speaking of newsletters, that’s another resolution for 2015. We’ve taken stabs at putting together a newsletter and our goal this year is to produce a value-packed newsletter each month in 2015.

Some of the features we’re considering are:

Small Business Trends


What’s Happening with the Empowered Pros

Business Book of the Month

This Month in Business History

Tax/Bookkeeping/Legal Tips

Business Apps and Software Tips


Travel is always a big deal for us and this year is no exception. This May we’ve booked a trip to our timeshare outside of Glacier National Park at Teton Village. We’ll be spending a week there hiking, photographing, and just plan enjoying both Glacier National Park and Yellowstone National Park. This is our first trip to both and we’re pretty excited about it.

In June I’m headed back to McCall, Idaho for an Advanced Mountain Flying Course. Ilene and I plan to spend a week in the Frank Church National Wilderness at Middle Fork Lodge.

While I’m learning advanced mountain flying and survival she’ll be hiking, fishing, horseback riding, or just hanging around the pool. When I’m not flying we’ll be enjoying those activities together.

We’re kicking around the idea of perhaps staying an extra week in the town of McCall as well. We’ll keep you posted.


This year we plan on expanding with video blogging, more reviews on emerging companies, and keeping you abreast of the latest and greatest business trends.

In October of last year I made it a goal to write a minimum of 500 words a day and as you can see with our website by doing this I’ve been able to post three times a week. I plan to continue this pace as another of my resolutions.

The last resolution I’ll share with you is to publish my first novel no later than 31 October of 2015. I’m very excited about it and can’t wait to finish the editing and see it published. It’s been in the works for some time so this is a biggie when it comes to goals.

I’ve shared these goals with you, dear readers, so that by expressing where we are and where we’re going you’ll get a sense of what is all about. I also ask that you hold our feet to the fire on these resolutions so that next year I can say to all of you, MISSIONS ACCOMPLISHED!

Here’s to your success!
