This has been a week of thanksgiving for us.  Yes, I said thanksgiving. We’ve survived life’s challenges and also came through a hurricane, mostly unscathed. 

The storms of life come and go, both literally and figuratively.  They can either sneak up and catch us off guard, strike from seemingly nowhere, or maybe we see them coming, like this week’s hurricane, and no amount of preparation can prevent what might happen. 

As entrepreneurs, we have a vision of how things should look and we diligently plot our path on how to achieve our goals.  When things go wrong, as they sometimes will, we have to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and press forward… always staying focused on the big picture and refusing to let setbacks steal our dream. 

If things aren’t going your way, figure out why and refocus.  Don't play the blame game and try to make it someone else’s problem.  Own your mistakes and learn from them.  When you need help, it’s okay to ask.  Asking for help is an acknowledgement that you are strong enough to recognize you need it.  Then and only then will you move forward.   

We are so thankful for each of you and the opportunity to be part of your lives.  You inspire us so we can inspire others.  That’s what it feels like to live in a state of thanksgiving.

Hugs,
