What Are You Thankful For?

Hi Everyone.

Can you believe it’s that time of year again?

The weather up here in New England is turning cold, the leaves have already fallen, and the Holiday catalogues are in the mailbox.

It’s the time of year when we small business owners and solo entrepreneurs look at our to do lists and ask “How can I possibly get all of this done before the end of the year?”  Sadly, the answer that typically comes back is “You’re not.”   I know about this first hand.

It’s been an eventful year for me with lots of changes to the business.  There’s been a new website, new products, and a new attitude.

I reignited my passion for intellectual property in January.  It has taken me longer than I thought to get things into shape. There have been false starts, major edits, and few course corrections along the way.  C’est la vie!  This is the life of the entrepreneur and I’m loving every minute of it.

I’m truly grateful for the business that I am building, and I would just like to say thank you to those who are helping me navigate this journey.

First, to Monica, a very smart, creative woman who became my friend this year.  Thank you for listening to my crazy ideas, encouraging me to move forward, and bringing me down to reality on occasion.  I love our lunch dates!

Second, to Tea, a very saucy gal.  Thank you for helping me use my words.  You taught me more than you will ever know about websites, copywriting, and reaching an audience.

Third, to my Lincoln Mastermind Group.  I learn so much from each and every one of you.  Your passion for your businesses really blows me away.  Thank you for your honesty and compassion.  I know that you understand.

Fourth, to Valerie, a new friend building her own dream.  I look forward to watching your journey through entrepreneurship.

Last on the list but first in my heart, to Bob and Amanda.  Bob, you make this entire journey worth it.  I am so grateful to be sharing this life with you.  Amanda Rose, I truly do this for you!  The only job title I will ever need is “Amanda’s Mom”.

Peace and blessings to you all.  I hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!
