Getting My Ducks in a Row

Note: this is a very personal post, and I totally understand if you skip it.

Last year at this time, I was blogging every weekday of July and writing my book. I spent my vacation publishing posts, managing comments and working on my book. I feel like I completely neglected my family during this process. They are more than supportive, my daughter even has a copy of my book in her room. Have I mentioned how much I love that kid?

This year has been rough personally with a comedy of errors in our household. Nothing major, but enough for me to take my eye off my business to deal with a whole bunch of stress. I feel like I am coming out of the fog, but I need some quality time with my family before I can again focus on this blog and provide you with useful information. With that, I may or may not post to this blog again this month. I just need some time to be with family and recharge.

I have some big things planned for the second half of this year, but feel I need to spend some quality time with both Big and Little J as well as collect my own thoughts. I hope that you are still here when I get back.

In my almost 20 years in business, I feel like I can sum things up as Been There, Done That. I have won awards, presented in front of more people than I can count and even wrote a book, but one thing has not changed – I love working with businesses to help them tell their story to the world.

    I know many business people, but very few have the laser-focused clarity of purpose and “deep depth” (to use a Yogi Berra-ism) of knowledge that you have, Beth. Having the wits about you to “sharpen the saw” (borrowing from Covey here) when you feel it dulling down is a sign of great strength. Kudos to you, and I’m buying at Nola when you resurface. Cheers! –Jo

      Thanks Joanne. That’s means a lot coming from you. I will totally take you up on that offer when I am back.

  • Hi Beth,

    The whole work/life balance doesn’t mean anything if you don’t have a life. Take all the time you need. I can attest that even a mini-break helps.
