The 2017 100 Wrap-Up — 31 Successes.

Several weeks, a few dozen photos and four thousand words later, we’ve finally made it—the Casey Palmer, Canadian Dad 2017 wrap-up, filled with stories aplenty of 365 days spent in my not-so-orthodox life.

After wrapping the year up on a quiet note (because two sick children under five will do that to you), I still felt it necessary to do this. These year-to-year changeovers offer a lot of perspective for me—with so much happening all the time, I often forget what I had for breakfast, so I write everything down. And if the height of the pile on my desk is any sign, 2017 was quite the year. But it’s also the time where I’m the most transparent, looking back objectively at everything I’ve done and celebrating successes, owning up to failures, hoping all the while that I’m somehow growing from the process.

But yeah—let’s do this as we did in 2016: look at the year in excruciating detail, figuring out what’s worth taking with me into 2018 versus what doesn’t feel part of my world anymore.

Ladies and gentlemen, let me present—the 31 things I did well in 2017! Let’s get it!

Let’s make this a quickie.

Alright, it’s come to my attention that managing finances might not be something everyone’s well-versed in, here. I’m hoping to do a series of blog posts on financial management, but I’ll need everyone’s help.

A little about me before we start:

  • worked at TD Canada Trust for 6.5 years, finishing up as a Financial Sales Representative
  • have an Honours Bachelor of Arts from York University, majoring in Business & Society with a focus in the Economics and Mathematics/Statistics streams
  • spent two years as a Business/Financial Planning intern for the Government of Ontario, currently employed there as a Project Planning Coordinator

With all that said, please fire off your questions, concerns and ideas for financial management. What do you want to know more about? Where can I help?

Let me know so I can start writing to help you!

Thanks,
