After a fabulous Christmas and New Year with family and friends, I am back to the office today! Ready for 2017 and excited to see OnTheQT grow even more this year. I am bursting with excitement about what is ahead for OnTheQT in 2017 and I am looking forward to filling you in on all the exciting 2017 plans and sharing the journey with you this year. I always think the first few days back to work after the New Year is a great time to not only look ahead and plan exciting goals for 2017 but it is a great time to look back at how far you have come to date. Always look back and see how far you have come to give you the confidence in how far you can go!
Last year was a very successful year for OnTheQT and I have been putting a lot of work into expanding the business in 2017. It is a very exciting time as I watch all the plans I have been working over the place few months coming into place. I am bursting with excitement to see where OnTheQT will be this time next year! 2016 has been a kind year, it allowed me to grow OnTheQT, launch new and excited areas of the business and allowed me to travel the world. Of course, each year brings challenges but it is how you meet those challenges that matter. It makes you stronger as a person.
Last year we had a great year of fun, travel and exciting adventures. We travelled to many places around the world, met new people, while also gaining more friendships and opportunities all over the world. OnTheQT.ie would not be such a success without you – our readers, our followers, and our customers – so thank you for being such an important part of our business!
One of the highlights of the year was launching our new vlog, and we were even more excited when our VLOG won Ireland’s Best Vlog 2016. This is an area that I am dedicated, passionate and extremely enthusiastic about, and so to be awarded such a prestigious accolade is an honour, and extremely encouraging! OnTheQT was also absolutely delighted to pick up not one…. but TWO awards at the Digital Marketing Awards 2016! Awarded the “Best use of Facebook”, and the “Best use of Video” for a company of less than 30 employees! These awards were not only for the team, they were for you guys too! Your support and encouragement keep us going every day to share new content from all around the world. OnTheQT wouldn’t be here without you.
It is true that nothing comes without hard work. I have been working on some very exciting plans which are beginning to all fall into place for 2017. I cannot wait to share it with you. We have our first big surprise for 2017 launching in a few weeks so stay tuned to see it! We also have lots of new vlog series booked in for 2017 around the world and we cannot wait to bring you on the adventures with us.
I am off to Killarney for a few days this week on our first QT adventure of 2017 so be sure to follow my adventure on snapchat(username: ontheqtie).
Remember… This is your year to sparkle!
