Merry Christmas. And if you celebrate something other than Christmas, I send my love and hugs and hope it is the best celebration ever.
My wish? Peace on earth, love for one another. Seriously.
2015 has been a year of change for me. Many of you know my story, but in case you don’t, I wanted to share a few things from the heart.
My wish for all of us is joy in life, loved ones that support us and happiness in our everyday comings and goings.
My life changed in April. One moment I was kissing my husband Michael a quick goodbye as I set out for an overnight trip with family.
A few hours later the call came that began the nightmare that lasted a little over 24 hours. And then he was gone.
I still can’t believe it. There are days when I think “when Michael gets home…” and then it comes back to me.
I share this because I want you to embrace today. In some ways I’m lucky. Michael and I had a great relationship. He knew he was loved as do I and there was never any doubt that our family was his joy. There are of course adventures and dreams we put off, thinking we had plenty of time.
In our human-ness we always think we’ll have more time. We’re built to deal with the here and now.
But there really is no someday.
It’s today. That’s what we have and it’s our privilege; our divine duty to make it matter.
I’ve taken time away from my business to take care of my family and myself. We moved, we have dealt with and continue to deal with our grief and we're still in the process of figuring out what life is going to look like from now on.
Time away also gave me the chance to get some perspective. I started looking for answers to questions like:
- What do I really want to be doing?
- How do I see myself serving?
- What brings me happiness in my work?
- How can I do more of the things I love?
And after some time sorting, thinking and talking with a trusted advisor and friends I’ve figured out a few things.
On the business front, The Entrepreneur’s Toolbox is alive and well.
It won't be business as usual though.
Changes are coming.
Some will be cosmetic like my new banner at the top of the website along with other website revisions.
Others are more deeply rooted.
I am letting go of services and business relationships that have been fantastic opportunities in the past but no longer enable me to serve to the best of my ability.
For the first time ever, I’m offering one on one consulting.
^^^That makes my heart sing just to type it!!^^^
Building websites is still in my service offerings but I’m intentional about making sure that my clients don’t just end up with a site. There's so much more to it than that. My heart's desire is that you end up with a profitable business that lights you up! That’s something I am extremely passionate about.
Clarity and confidence make moving forward easy. Laying a solid foundation by looking at where you are, where you want to be and systematically creating a plan that enables you to serve your audience is the ultimate goal. It all comes so much more easily when the big picture is clear.
That’s what I can do for you.
So if big-picture-clarity is on your list of to-do’s then let’s talk and see if we can’t make 2016 your best year ever.

Because today IS your someday.
From my heart to yours,
