It seems impossible that we are in December and fully emerged into the holidays! I feel like we should be somewhere back in August….oh well. November was a great month of activities and opportunities…and food! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I spent time with the family in Oklahoma City and had a beautiful time of fellowship and ate some most amazing food! We had a crazy fun game with my Parisian friends called “spoon people”, it was a frenzy of getting our friends and family to balance a spoon on their nose and get a pic….the contest was heated and we were ahead at one point and then the French took over….and won! AHH! But hey, there are more holidays coming up – Christmas and Hannaka, and I feel a rematch coming on! So if you get a crazy call or text from me asking you to send me a photo of you with a spoon on your nose…..now you will know what I mean! Ha!
I was also out and about in Deep Ellum and attended the Dallas Observer Music Awards, what a fun time that was. My daughter Sarah performed at Club Dada and brought down the house!
I am very grateful for this year and for the new friends I have made and new clients that have entrusted me and the team at Lyric with their marketing and PR needs. I continue to be amazed at how connected we are and how global the business environment has become. The tools that are available for us to share our message worldwide is ever increasing and mind-blowing! Let me know what you want to see happen in your business this coming year and then let’s meet for coffee or wine to strategize!
I am so looking forward to all that is in store for December, we have a ton of cool stuff on the list so get out there and make it happen. No one is going to know your story and how you can benefit them with your services if you don’t get the word out, and that starts with YOU!
Love and Peace and Blessings for a magical holiday season!
