Mimosas, Love Notes and Bare Feet
As 2014 winds down, it is a good time to take stock of what you loved about your business this year. To spark your thinking, here are some of my loves.
Owning my own business means I have the luxury of setting my own hours. That includes getting home in time to meet my kiddo off the school bus. In order to get all my client appointments in by 2pm, my first available time-slot starts at 7:30am. Anyone willing to kick off the day that early is treated to a mimosa. I can assure you that I wasn’t doing that in my internal coaching and consulting jobs in financial services or the defense industry.
More than in any other year, I received gifts, flowers and thank you cards from clients who were deeply touched by the work we did together to transform their businesses, their beliefs and their lives. I am so grateful for the opportunity to work with these heart-centered entrepreneurs who are committed to working through the hard stuff to bring their best selves to their clients and their communities.
I love my office with the big windows and wallspace for brainstorming and strategizing with my clients. We often get so comfortable dreaming and planning that we kick off our shoes. I never tire of making my own rules.
What do you love about how things went in your business in 2014 and how can you leverage that for more love in 2015? Please share!
