Hello Spring Newsletter
Hello! Can you believe it is Spring? We’re ready for new beginnings and here’s our first - a newsletter!! Our goal is to use this space to share some of our favorite things with you, offer small business tips, and let you get to know us a little better. We hope it might introduce you to something new and inspire you. Happy Spring, everyone.
Each time a woman stands up for herself,
she stands up for all women
without knowing it possibly, without claiming it,
she stands up for all women.
- Maya Angelou
We learned a lot about ourselves this last year and we're anxious to keep building and growing. Good and bad of 2020, we learned that life is always a work in progress and that's why we love this book...The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. It’s not a new book but it is one we often go back to. It's all about building new ideas and habits for a happier you. And as we continue to evolve with the changing world, balance and happiness sound pretty useful.
Quick business tip for you- first, can you believe we’re already at the end of March? Did you start your year off on the right track with a planning session? It’s not too late, if you haven’t, and makes the world of difference in your productivity. Cross it off your list in 5 easy steps!
Revisit last year's mission, goals, objectives, results. Are they still valid, what worked
Set SMART goals for this year - what will you aim to achieve?
Create a plan for reaching each goal. Do you have the tools, or do you need help?
Plan ahead - sketch out a general calendar to reach your goals. Be sure to add in communication and creation time for new ideas.
Don’t forget to celebrate and have fun. Even after a tough year, we always make certain to schedule a celebration or team event. Enjoy your wins.
No secret here - we love small businesses. And we love nothing more than supporting them. Remember you can support a small business with more than just your wallet. Follow them on social media, refer friends to their business, and share, share, share.
