COF 050: A #Bussoutyear – 2016 Year in Review

In this episode, Kerry-Ann reflects on 2016, her first #bussoutyear why she decided to step out of her comfort zone. And the steps to take to get to your own #bussoutyear in 2017.

This is the video I first posted about 2016 being a #bussoutyear. Just doing this video alone was stepping out of my comfort zone.


Since this video, I’ve done more social videos in Snap Chat and Instagram. I also did a video call 30 Things About Me:

and a Caribbean Heritage Month video series which featured other entrepreneurs however, I did a outro at the end of each video.

You can have a #Bussoutyear too

You too can have a #bussoutyear. It’s not easy but it’s doable.

  1. First be intentional about wanting a #bussoutyear.
  2. Take action. A small step that leads to a domino effect.
  3. Get Accountability. You’re more likely to have a #bussoutyear, if others are holding you accountable to getting out your comfort zone.
  4. Celebrate & Reflect.
    • It’s important to celebrate your achievements big or small. But it’s also important to take time, reflect and take a break before continuing on your journey.
    • If you feel like there’s nothing to celebrate yet, don’t be hard on yourself. Take a break, reflect to decide your approach for moving forward.
  5. Repeat.
