Happy New Year!

I hope your holidays were filled with love, laughter, and joy and you’re looking forward to 2022.

This month I’m finding focus, feeling heartbroken by the Marshall fires, reducing the plastic packaging I bring into my house, watching marketing trends for 2022, and launching a new website for my friends at LiveLoveDance Studio.

4000 Weeks by Oliver Burkeman

#1 Finding Focus

I recently attended Ilise Benun’s 2022 marketing retreat. Part of the prep work was to read 4000 weeks, Time Management for Mortals, by Oliver Burkman. My husband and I listened to the audiobook during our car ride from Colorado and South Dakota and back again over the holiday break.

It was the perfect book to kickoff 2022. Written during the pandemic, it felt current. The book questions our relationship with time and challenges us to focus on what matters most and how to let some things go. If you’re seeking order from the chaos this might be the book to read this month.

Marshall Fires in Superior and Louisville Colorado

#2 The Marshall Fires

There’s nothing like thinking you might lose everything to shine a light on what matters most. I live in Broomfield, about 5 miles east of the Marshall Fire. The communities of Louisville and Superior were hit hard. I know families who lost everything and others who were spared miraculously. My family was lucky; although we packed our car to the max in preparation, we didn’t need to evacuate. If you’d like to help, you can donate through Colorado Gives.

#3 Can I Recycle This?

What’s your new year’s resolution? One of mine is to reduce the amount of plastic I bring into my house. But it’s hard, it’s everywhere! Which is why I picked up Can I Recycle This: A Guide to Better Recycling and How to Reduce Single-Use Plastics at my local library. It’s an easy read and full of beautiful watercolor illustrations by Christie Young.

LiveLoveDance Studio Website Launch

#5 Just Launched!

Just launched! I’m so excited to announce the launch of LiveLoveDance studio’s brand-spanking-new website. I upgraded their old Wix website to WordPress with a Divi theme. It allows them make simple updates without breaking their website like Wix did. And the site is now mobile-friendly to boot.
