It might seem like such a little thing, but a quick thank you when someone retweets your content or mentions you or your content on Twitter, can go a long way toward building relationships.
On this first day of 2015 as we enter a new year full of new hopes and dreams, I find myself so full of gratitude and thankfulness for everyone around me; especially those who have been such an influence in the success of my business. “It takes a village” is a saying that usually relates to parenthood, but those of us in business also know it oftentimes ‘takes a village” to create success and longevity in the professional world as well. That being said, I’d like to take a moment to tip my hat and recognize those people, organizations and mentors who have enabled my business to continue to grow in positive ways. [Read more…]
As we settle in to celebrate the holiday season, it is not that hard to see and express gratitude in relation to our personal lives. We have roofs over our heads, food on the table and the love of our family. But as we reflect and remember, we need to endeavor to express gratitude in regard to our business lives as well. As our work days seem to get longer and clients seem to be more challenging, we must not lose perspective of our business as a whole.
The ringing phone that makes your spine vibrate some days: Those are people who need your services, expertise and products.

The holiday season is coming to a close! My family is still basking in the warmth and joyfulness of Christmas, and excitedly looking forward to the new year ahead. It’s such a wonderful time to reflect on the past year – both personally and professionally … a time to be thankful for the many blessings we’ve received, a time to reflect on the many goals we set for the past year (those we’ve met and those we didn’t quite reach) and set new goals for the year ahead. It’s a time to forgive ourselves (and most certainly others) for the mistakes we’ve made and forge on with the intent of making wiser and more thoughtful decisions in both our personal and business lives.
I am so very thankful for so many people …
Our wonderful clients – without them we would have no business,
The extraordinarily fabulous BizEase Support Solutions team – they are the true backbone of my business,
All of my VA friends and colleagues – for making me so very proud to be a part of this incredible industry …
and to all my Twitter and Facebook friends and everyone else I’ve been so blessed to get to know this year. For all of you, I am truly grateful.
May all of you have THE most blessed of all Holiday Seasons … and may 2013 exceed your wildest dreams for abundantly blessed and prosperous lives and successful businesses!!
In light of the Thanksgiving holiday here in the US, today’s tip is about thankfulness.
The biggest tip I can give you on this wonderful Thanksgiving day is to be thankful. With all of the sadness and sorrow going on in the world in this day and time, the best way to keep from being overwhelmed by it all is to remember those things you can and should be thankful for.
Personally, I’m thankful for my wonderful family – my wonderful husband, my daughter, my granddaughter, my two sons and their wonderful wives and all of my extended family members. I’m thankful for my business, for all of my fabulous clients, and for my equally fabulous team members. I’m thankful that we have a nice warm home to live in, and an abundance of food for our table. I’m also thankful for good friends and business associates and a multitude of other things that are simply to numerous to list.
What are you thankful for? No matter where you are or what’s going on in your life, I’m sure there are many things you can think of to be thankful for in your life – if not many, then certainly at least one. Instead of thinking about all of the negative things going on in your life right now, I hope you’ll take at least a few minutes to consider the things you can and should be thankful for.
So on this Thanksgiving today, I wish you a very blessed holiday season, and many, many things to be thankful for!
