As leaders in the small business community, we have seen our share of challenges and successes these past twelve months. Please allow me to congratulate the flexibility of our Members as they quickly shifted to Zoom meetings and have continued to build each other’s businesses through this hard time. Since the majority of our Members represent the small business community, we all know how hard COVID has impacted them. Again, kudos to you for making it through with your positive entrepreneurial spirit of “Conscious Cooperation Produces Results”!
This year I learned two very difficult lessons. One, I have no control! Two, having a calendar/schedule is gone! Those of you who know me know that I have a Type A personality and really like having all my ducks in a row and know exactly when each one goes where. Ha! While these lessons were hard earned, they have been beneficial in many ways both personally and professionally. I found these two articles to be comforting and helpful, I hope you enjoy.
  • “How to Be Okay with Loose Plans in Your Life.” Who knew my not being able to plan had 3 easy solutions?
  • “Opinion: I’ve been yearning for an end to the pandemic. Now that it’s here, I’m a little afraid.” What will re-entry look like?

As we finish the first quarter of 2021 and spring into a new season, I wish you health and joy. And of course, a happy and growing business!
