My 2016 Personal Annual Report

My 2016 Personal Annual Report

Every year I say this has been the best year ever and every year it is true. Daily, I’m grateful for work I love with amazing people. Thanks for being a part of this with me!

Since 2011, I’ve been creating a personal annual report. It’s a dashboard of sorts that tracks my key performance indicators in a visual way. Everything in here is clickable, so dig deeper when something peaks your interest.

I wrote yet another book this year! Our Chart Chooser Cards Kickstarter campaign reached 1,000% of our goal! Wow! And thank you.


Want the template I used to create this visual? I’ll distribute it in my next newsletter, so sign up here:

    What do the different colors on your visited states mean?

    • Stephanie Evergreen says:

      Very good question. Light blue means I went once and dark blue means I went multiple times. I stated that in last year’s annual report and assumed you studied it so carefully you would remember. Just kidding!

    I love how interactive the report is! Keep up the good work! What did you use to create this?

    • Stephanie Evergreen says:

      I just used PowerPoint, Emily! I’ll send out the file in my next newsletter so you can see how it was done.

    I finally got around to reading this, and I wanted to say that I LOVE the interaction as well, but had no clue until a previous commenter mentioned it. Perhaps next year, include a little notation? And LOL at octopus. Seriously. Great job!

    Hi Stephanie
    I’ve been reading your web and it’s really interesting the way you’re dealing with the perception of the audience towards graphics and statistical reports.
    I’am a a director of a digital payment company based in Peru and one of the main problems and also a challenge is showing the Board of directors with a power point presentation the financial reports meaning balance sheet and the profit and loss globally, per business unit and more deeper when we talk about product results. the question is : I Am using the right tool..? would it be better instead of using a Powerpoint presentation to write a report..? area there in the market any web pages where I can get some tips about how to show the in a better way that it’s not boring..?
    be waiting for your comments
    By the way congrats…!!! your doing a great job
