If all goes according to my spreadsheet, my pies should be in the oven by the time you get this newsletter. Even though I’ve been planning my dinner for 25 like it’s the most complex project I ever tackled (it’s not), I haven’t lost sight of the most important part of my favorite holiday – Thanksgiving.
Everyone in business knows it is a team effort. I am so thankful for all the people who have supported my business over the last 14 ½ years – clients, colleagues, vendors, friends, and family. I feel truly lucky to have my team.
I’m grateful to everyone who’s been following and sharing this newsletter since I launched it last spring. Your support and encouragement keep me going! If you think of any topics you’d like me to address in the new year, please drop me a note and I’ll see what I can do.
I’m thankful to be in a business that is constantly evolving and changing, giving new things to learn and new adventures all the time.
I’m grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the good work my clients (both nonprofits and for-profit businesses) are doing in the world. (Speaking of non-profits – watch this space for the announcement of our 2017 featured non-profit.)
And I’m grateful for the big, happy, healthy family that will be filling our house – and garage – and back yard – tomorrow!
Over these next few days, we’ll have some extra opportunities to thank and support the people who are making out communities better. I do business locally whenever possible, but this weekend, especially, we can support the local brick-and-mortar businesses that support our communities on Small Business Saturday. And we have another chance to join together to support the people doing the hard work of helping those less fortunate with a little boost on #GivingTuesday.
I hope all of you have a peaceful, open-hearted, thankful Thanksgiving and holiday season this year.
