Tea chat

One of my favorite things is to sit in a coffee shop with a cup of tea, either being highly productive and churning out work or chatting with a friend. If we were sitting together today, we’d probably chat about the unseasonable warmth this October, our excitement for the upcoming holiday season, and how you’ve had a couple major wins at work lately.

As for me, currently I am…

Celebrating major business wins for a couple women in my mastermind group. Hiring a business coach and joining her mastermind was the best investment I’ve made in my business to date. The group is part advisory, part accountability, and part friendship and our time in Nashville a couple weeks ago was a celebration of our business growth. (Curious about working with a coach? Message me and I will give you the scoop!)

Planning for 2018. 100 Degrees Consulting has had two great years and we’re continuing to grow so we can serve more nonprofits and entrepreneurs. 2018 is going to be an important year as we streamline our processes and put systems in place to serve our current and potential clients even better. Asana, I am coming for you!

Reading lots of board books. Think, Llama Llama, Chicka Chicka Boom Boom, Madeleine, etc. Baby time takes precedence over reading time right now!

Listening to podcasts every time I hop in the car. My favorites include Pursuit with Purpose with Melyssa Griffin, The Good Journey Pod with Brady Josephson, and Profit, Power, Pursuit with Tara Gentile. What’s in your earbuds this week?

Working on board meeting prep for a couple clients, Q3 financial analyses for a couple clients, and 2018 budgeting for clients AND myself. Tell me your 2018 budget is underway…?

Thinking about nothing. In other words, I’m working on a mindfulness practice that is quite simple, but entails a brief yoga practice first thing in the morning. I’ve gotten accustomed to waking up, grabbing my phone, and immediately checking my email in bed and I think we all know that that is a terrible way to start your day. So instead, I’m hopping out of bed, breathing through a few sun salutations and waiting to check email and social media. So. Much. Better.

Enjoy your Tuesday morning coffee, my friends!
