My passion for serving small businesses and entrepreneurs grows when I receive an opportunity to design strategies that spread the news and the good work my clients do. Each of you who I’ve worked with, spoken to, retweeted, or simply connected with online or offline has inspired me to bring the greatest resources, creative ideas, listening space and actual marketing efforts forward for you to thrive.
The achievement of this award is honestly thrilling and the first of many real acknowledgments that my work has meaning and has made a difference.
Ever since I read Stephen Covey’s 7 Habits Of Highly Effective People, and did the exercise of what I want my tombstone to read. That is “She cared and made a difference.” That is my intention in every interaction I have with clients, colleagues, friends and family.
I realize that winning is essentially the reward of knowing that we have collaborated and I have received so many opportunities to contribute to the work and passion of many along the way.
The reward goes to all of us and it is great fun collaborating.
Here’s to many years of ongoing collaborations, success and rewarding experiences along the way.
