I just want you to know i think you are doing an incredible job and are an awesome human being.

Take this newsletter as your reminder to pause for a moment. Fly up to 10,000 feet and see your people, projects, and business from that perspective. Take a moment to recognize this year’s highs and lows, wins and losses, or the dark and the light.
I’ve made it easy for you to get started on your own reflection…take a moment here, now, by completing the following form. Only you and I will see your answers, and truly, this is more for you than for me. It’s about the act of pausing, thinking, and capturing, and letting the questions guide you in your own journal.
If you’ve already done this, fantastic! What are you celebrating from 2021? What has been a happy collision of values, hard work, and luck coming together – as one of my clients recently named it a “right place, right moment situation”?
