I hope all my friends here in the U.S. enjoyed a great Independence Day week, and now that we are fully into mid-July, you are back into full swing with your businesses. It is always challenging to get our focus back on business after a holiday of fun with family!
Whew… after a full month of travel and working from Austin to New York City, I was called to go be with my dad who was having an emergency surgery. The good news is that it was successful and he is getting stronger every day. He is still not out of the woods but is under good care and we are keeping our hopes high. This past week I have laid pretty low and helped mom and my brother and sisters stay on watch with dad. The blessing that has come out of it is the opportunity for our entire family to be together and camped around him 24/7, giving him lots of healing love.
One thing I enjoy as an entrepreneur is having the freedom to work anywhere in the world. It has taught me how to focus and to look for better ways of serving my clients – noticing the differences and the similarities in markets, people and strategies. This week moving forward, I am back at it and with an inspired approach to life and my business. When you experience almost losing your dad, you begin to see priorities in life differently. I plan to share some of those insights with you in the upcoming months and with new projects that are being developed. Check my personal blog at SaturdaySoul.com and the marketing blog at LyricMarketing.com, I hope my recent articles will inspire you both personally and professionally!
