Today—November 18, 2020—is my 20th business anniversary!
20 years ago today, my friend was mentoring me through the overwhelming process of starting a business and she said: “Just give it a few months.” Well, the months turned into a year, then a decade and now two decades.
As much as I would have liked to write a “20 things I’ve learned in 20 years” list today, I will tell you the main thing I’ve learned: You need a support network.
Whether it’s my small business friends, working mom groups, creative accountability group, collaboration partners, or membership groups I couldn’t have made it this far without their support, inspiration and generosity, both personally and professionally. Not to mention the support of my husband, family and parents (including my self-employed dad) and two kids who you’ve probably seen “crash” a meeting or two this year.
I’m especially grateful for the opportunity to do the work I love for organizations that are making a difference. Thank you for being with me on this journey! #LVD20
