Happy New Year!
While 2016 undeniably sucked for many folks, and 2017 brings tough challenges and grave dangers for our country and world, 2016 was personally a splendid year for me -- and the things that made it so are expected to further blossom this year. :)
The ice & snow storms have created hassles and loss of work, but for me they are also proving to be a good opportunity to hunker down and get caught up on some projects, as well as to break new ground. I've updated and improved areas of my website. And I've met with a small business consultant through SCORE that is helping me take my businesses to the next level. While some leaps of faith and risks have been required, I am hopeful that the peak of 2017 will see fruits from seeds planted now: namely, the expansion of my teaching business in its new location, and the expansion of the Hot Club into new realms, including more weddings, wineries, and other private events.
Forging ahead, into the future!
