2015 has been an incredible year for JSP. There has been a ton of growth not only in business, but artistically, and personally.
This is the time of year when everyone reflects on what has happened in the past year. For JSP- I joined a referral networking group called BNI. It's worldwide- and has proven success over and over again. After minimal convincing I decided to join our local chapter- this is an awesome group of business owners, and they are my trusted network! I've made some new amazing friends along the way within the network.
One of those friends is Heather Carollo with Heather Carollo Photography. She's amazing. Her husband (Andre- of Andre's Air- If you need a HVAC guy- He's your guy!) is in my BNI group. We've connected and she has been a huge crucial part in helping my business grow. We are much alike- even before we met. Our styles are similar- both professionally & personally. She has referred many families to me- and for that I am grateful. We will continue to help each other grow in the new year! Thank you Heather!
In 2015 I was pushed outside my comfort zone- a lot. I think when you're challenged- you tend to discover things about yourself that you would have never seen. Artistically, Technically, and personally pushed out of my comfort zone to take on amazing opportunities. I am grateful. This is where growth happens.
2015 allowed me to tie up loose ends from 2014. I had to deal with many firsts without my best friend Stacie- who had passed in 2014. After all of the firsts- I was able to start healing finally from that devastating loss. With healing comes progress.
Finally- 2015 has allowed me to provide for my family while doing something that I love. Not everyone can say that. I think it's important to do what you love. Not only for yourself- but sharing your gift with others is gratifying.
I look forward to what 2016 will bring for JSP.
Happy New Year everyone!
